As some of you may know, I have been around on these forums for quite a while, and have made many themes and even had a bash at my own ROM. I run JGM Software as a personal venture outside of normal work and education. I develop for Android and for Windows, yet although my website has been viewed many thousands of times and my themes and ROM builds downloaded by literally thousands of people, I have not charged for any of my efforts. I am happy to do this, and while currently all my work is available for free, I would like to start making some more polished creations. I plan on purchasing a Nexus S, so I remain at the cutting edge of Android, but my Blade development will still continue undiminished. I am, if you will, expanding my horizons. I hope that as I study Computer Science and Software Engineering full time at Uni, my skills will increase and the quality of my apps and programming will increase further.
I am registering as a developer with Google, so I can sell some of my work on the Android Market, and this is where you come in. This is not a post begging for your money. This is a post asking for some of your time to help me to improve and make a start for myself as a professional developer. I have an icon pack for Launcher Pro, theming all the Google app icons with the latest Ice Cream sandwich icons, and more packs are planned, possibly Honeycomb and a Gingerbread theme for Froyo and Eclair devices. Also possible are widget skins, again for Launcher Pro.
What I ask of you is this:
-For an icon pack for Launcher Pro, what do you feel is a reasonable price?
-Does anyone have suggestions or input as to the content or selection of packs?
-Would people generally be willing to pay small amounts for professional icon packs and widget skins?
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and let me reiterate that this is not a begging letter. The input and "market research" that I gain from this thread will be of a huge help to me. Thank you.
