Android has a better user reachability since most smartphones run on the Android system while the competing platforms like the Apple iOS only run on the Apple iPhones and iPads. Android has also made it for new developers to publish apps since there are no "acceptance requirements", so apps can be published even when they might not be high quality apps. There are no restrictions on what should be developed, the Google and Amazon platforms are linked to the play stores, which is why there is a greater chance at an app being a success. And since it is cheaper to develop an Android app, a good app can generate handsome profits.

android apps also rely on third party advertisers, banner ads, and background usage to market paid ads. Developers can also get paid for their app before they are even downloaded, since reviews and descriptions are there give the users a sense of confidence in the app and its product. If the app is not delivering what it says it delivers then the app will simply fail to gain any revenue.
