Adding 3rd party SDK to your apps?

  assender 11:01 12 Feb 2019

I know, a lot has been said now about adding some 3rd party SDK to your app, as Google started banning a lot of apps or developers recently. But tbh, most of the cases i have seen, were developers fault.

As i have read, if your app has been removed due to having 3rd party SDK, its basically, coz you havent mentioned it properly in TOS. You had to change your TOS with providing info of what you have added, and what you are collecting, and then you could have reuploaded the app without the fear of getting banned. Most of developers havent done that, and just reuploaded apps back, without clearing up anything, which resulted in ban from store.

TL;DR, do you think its still profitable doing that, if you make all the TOS clear, and do everything “by the book”?

tbh, I haven't the faintest idea as it will depend on the uptake of the app.

probably spam. Running this on a few more forums including C/Net.

If that is the case assender and I have got it wrong I apologize.

It is something I probably would not do but everyone is different and of course some just want the answer asap.

Probably not my wisest choice, but these places seemed like pretty reputable forums, where people could have such knowledge. As went throu all the possible Google documentations, and obviously they provide no direct answer, was thinking that people would know it best. Sorry if seemed like spam ✌�/p>

You are asking our opinion and that's all you will get, not an answer - an opinion. There is no way to know for any app whether or not it will be profitable in the future.
