19. Publishing Your Android Application > Choosing the Right Distribution Model

Choosing the Right Distribution Model

The application distribution methods you choose to employ depend on your goals and target users. Here are some questions you should ask yourself:

• Is your application ready for prime time or are you considering a beta period to iron out the kinks?

• Are you trying to reach the broadest audience, or have you developed a vertical market application? Determine who your users are, which devices they are using, and their preferred methods for seeking out and downloading applications.

• How will you price your application? Is it freeware or shareware? Are the payment models (single payment versus subscription model versus ad-driven revenue) you require available on the distribution mechanisms you want to leverage?
