"Hurra - ich wachse" got an update to V1.2. Data table is now scrollable by finger tip or with the mouse. Also the permissions should be in accordance with Android 6.x now (if anyone has an Android 6 device, please test).
Avaialable for MorphOS (full version), Windows (demo) and Android (demo ad full version).
Language is still German only (I should translate this program at least to English...)

I am curious if you are getting any sales there, care to share?

Also, have you been marketing your softwares anywhere?

I could imagine some of your software are such kind that those interested would buy them when they see them, but i dont think theres too many of those people around.
I also wonder if those same people actually keep looking for software like yours actively, or do they passively wait to see one somewhere.

@ Bugala

Sales of the "Hurra - ich wachse" app are very, very, very low. The Android demo was downloaded about 10 times more often than the full version - which is an okayish ratio IMHO. My plan was to use adwords as marketing tool as I had good experience with advertizing real goods with them. But adwords is rather borked for advertizing apps. They offer the CPI (cost per install) method for apps. Sounds great, but doesn't work as you need actually higher CPI cost (about 3 PI) than you get for that particular sale (in my case about 1.7x EUR). It's good to raise hype for general apps. But my app is not of general interest, no must have, no big thing. It's a small special interest app. in contrast to adwords for real goods you cannot determine key words, but need some slogans when promoting apps. My idea to just offer a lower CPI value, say 25 ct was rejected by the google sub office that called me when I set up such a campaign.
I didn't took their proposal then (it just dosn't do the math) and wanted to set it up with a lower cpi value anyway (at least for testing), but somehow adwords is broken on another matter, too: My campaign was rejected due to some illegal character - which definitely was not there. Even the google sub office guys were not able to solve this issue (their initial 3 EUR CPI campaign setup had the same "illegal character" error. End of story: No advertizing yet. And hence it goes under in noise (i am not on facebook or any other social network).
I also thought to not sell it, but integrate a donate button, but this is against google's terms of use. They definitely want to milk you and don't accept other ways. Apps with donate button get usually removed from the app store (at least that's what I read).
