Progress Report - February 2017


Progress Report - February 2017

I post a progress report showing what I did and how my products performed each month. Last month’s report can be seen here.

What did I do

Productive Hours in February 2017

I worked 109 productive hours. (Tracked using RescueTime.)
I watched The OA.

I added Google Drive Backup Support to my React Native apps and some more features.



Download growth has been stable for two of my four apps. Another app’s downloads growth increased by 60%, whereas the other one decreased by 49%. The reason is probably because of two 1 star reviews it received in January, creating a score of only 3.8 stars.

In sum, my apps were downloaded 1034 times this month.

In-App Purchases

I introduced In-app Purchases (to remove ads) for all my apps last month, and to my surprise I could earn the same amount in February as I did in January. I made 28.88€ (+1.51€).

Ad Revenue

Ad revenue was also stable, the increased and decreased downloads canceled each other out. I made 53.43€ (-2.66€) for 59500 Google AdMob banner impressions.

App Income AdMob

Total App Income

In total, this month’s app income was 82.31€ (-1.15€).

Platform Growth


My blog was shared quite a bit this month, most noticeable by this Top React Blogs reddit post and by a JavaScript Daily tweet about void. (Thanks!)

Website Traffic


This also increased my twitter followers to 120. (+58)

What’s next

I’m currently working on the backend of a new app. Stay tuned.
