Hey guys,

I'm almost done with a game I've been working on lately.
I'd like to publish it on Google Play Store - both as free version with ads, and as paid version.

Is that possible without much trouble?
If yes, is there anything I have to take into consideration?

ANY tips and hints from you guys are greatly appreciated


Thanks,
PSY

Hey,

meanwhile I figured I want to publish a demo version, which will feature about 1/3 of the levels, without achievements, without leaderboard, and without ads.
I also want to publish a full version, which will cost about <1$.

What's best practice here? Simply create two complete different apps in Google Play Store?
Or is there a better way to do this?

I believe you have to create two different apps in the playstore, well atleast that's the way ide do it
I have seen many people do it that way. I don't like the way if its already a free app you cant change it tho

I think I'm gonna create one app, which will be a demo with the option to purchase the full version via in-app-purchase.
That way, I'll be easy to take over the savegames.
