Well the largest market doesn't necessarily mean the best. The smaller ones like Windows Phone 8, and the new Blackberry 10 are the ones I am interested in because there not over flooded with apps, competition, and AAA games yet so there is lots of opportunity there right now. But there phones are new, expensive, and require contracts in the US.
I have two games in the Google play store, and I am trying to monetize off of them with ad revenue but CocoonJS is the only wrapper that works right now, and they have a bad ad service. I haven't made any money yet.
If you want a cheap, no contract phone, and if you live in the US Walmart
has a variety of prepaid android smartphones in a box for under $100. But make sure it has the Google Play Store installed on it because not all cheaper android devises can run it. Also get one with a powerful processor, and a lot of ram you will need it. Try to get one with at least the Ice Cream Sandwich OS or newer.
You could develop for ios app store but you will need to buy a Mac if you don't have one to compile the code. But I here iphone users actually like to spend money on apps.Wink2013-03-26 05:03:41
