Hello. First of all, I'm not programmer. I've just had an idea of the app and hired programmer to develope it. That was 3 years ago, and after that no one upgraded this app. Last year the server had been down for a half of year and I even couldnt fix it and lost users. But now it works fine. So, I know, what to do to make it high profitable (very huge list of advises on how to improve), but can't manage it myself. But you can.
For sale: server part code + all source codes and all required components and the app transfer. The app is translated into 16 languages. If you want just source code (without transferring package), it's 5 times cheaper. PM for details.
As far as the app has not been updated for 3 years, the number of downloads increases slowly.
But you have 3 neccessary things to make it very popular:
1. 10000 (+30 new DAILY) subscribers, so when you update the app, you let them know about it and make them invite friends.
2. Data consists of 3 million speedcams (+50 new DAILY) from all the world, which were added by thousands of our users.
3. 6000 organic downloads per month.
This app is crowdsourcing platform for exchanging speedcams location. As for today there are 3300 downloads a month, and 50 new points are added daily. You can check it out yourself, by installing the app and updating data the next day.
I have not implemented any monetization.
Here are the options of monetization for you.
1. Donations. Embody pop-up window with request for donations.
2. Israeli company, contacts of which I'll transfer to new owner, wants to install in the app their code for researching (the code wouldnt affect the app and wouldnt add any new features). They will pay 100$ for every 50000 users monthly.
4. In-purchase of all (except of basic) features, some which are listed bellow.
5. Demo week, after which user will have only basic features, and he need to pay for unblocking all features. Do you know, that when you cut demo mode from month to a week, there will be 40% more purchases?
First, what you need to do - it's implement instruction and tips and easy tutorial in the app. Cuz most of users don't understand the interface and how to activate the app. Most of users delete the app on this reason. Describe them everything in the first screen through pop-up tips with arrows, and they will stay.
Second, what you need to do - it's embody in-purchase and let users to buy additional features. Earn on fremium:
1. Show map = 1$.
2. Change background = 1$.
3. Allow Geiger effect = 1$.
4. Block ads = 1$.
I have a list on more than 40 improvements, which you need to implement and which you will sell through in-purchase. I'll transfer all the list.
Also you can earn on the targeted, focused (auto/moto) ads. Focused ads earn more.
Another way - is to enable all features for a week as a demo and close most of then, until user pays.
Third, what you need to do - is to change icon and background. The UI is awful now and never had been upgraded. I can even give you cheap icon designer (50$ for a bunch of icons). Also I'll help you with Russian strins and description, like for free.
Four - read user's wishes (a lot of suggests in the comments), reports about bugs and so on. The app works improperly (or crushes) on some phone models and OS, cuz it was made long time ago. And generally you must care the app, publishing updates.
Five - Port to iOS. Add new languages. Add keywords in description, improve description at all. I'm noob at this.
Also - gain users. Through pop-up window advice users to invite their friends to the app, so they will fill in the map together more quick. Embody subscription on the news through another pop-up window. These all ideas are placed in my list of needed improvments, which I'll transfer. For instance, among advices - add crowdsourcing data not only for speedcams, but for eatery and gas stations also.
3 years ago it had 1000 organic downloads/day, but now downloads decreased to 110/day, cuz the app has not been updated for 3 years and needs care.
So, it'll take a week or two for you to embody all suggestions and you will earn after that minimum 2K a month and increase it.
