In addition to my post http://schimpf.es/android-clients-for-mysql/ I made some screenshots of all the existing MySQL clients available in android. Sometimes it is alot easier to decide for or against an application viewing some simple screenshots.
If you want to read more about these MySQL clients, please read my post.

Selling your application is only one of the possibilities to gain money with your android application. The other way, which works fine for any app which got many downloads is to show publicity and get paid either for impressions of these or for clicks your user do on them. Most of the advertisement provider will show a small banner, which you can place in your app, but there are other forms of publicity like videos, popups, advertising using the notifications and so on.
Here is an overview of the most popular advertising provider.
Today I implemented a sdk for free banner exchange to my free android app Easy light. The banner exchange community is called Tap for Tap and promises that that you get a free impresion on one of your banners for every banner you show in your applicaion. This a complete free service and there is no way to buy credits.
The integration of the sdk is very simple and well documented and worked without any problems.
I will report again as soon as i have some stats of the clicks people made on my banners and the increase of the installation rate of the app I am going to promote.
The banner exchange Tap for Tap is now running in my little test application for this kind of things for two days. In these two days the application did show 55 banner means it earned 55 credits. Most of the people who got the app installed did not update yet to the new version with the Tap for Tap sdk.
In the same two days I spent nearly 2000 credits from the bonus you get for register and installing the sdk. These 2000 impressions resulted in 29 Taps/Clicks in the banner which is a rate of 1.4% which is not to bad. From the stats of the google market i can see 8 installs in the first of these two days which is are 6 more then the usual 2 install this application has every day. The stats for the second day are still missing.
These numbers are not to bad for a complete free service. I will continue testing the service and report more and soon there are more numbers.
