Seller's Notes

ABOUT THE SELLER

We are a two-person team that love developing useful apps that can become useful assets to people's everyday activities.

  

APP DESCRIPTION

Find My Friends is an extremely successful Android application that allows users to exchange REAL-TIME locations on Google maps with Facebook, and Google+. It also enables users to  email and contact friends. The app has achieved more than 385,000 downloads (see cumulative installs attached screenshot), and more than 6.4K active installs per month (see active installs attached screenshot).

Additionally, we have designed the app with the privacy of our users in mind. Therefore we’ve made sure that the app’s location exchange is visible only to the user and his/her selected friends. Another good thing about our app is its user-friendly nature and virtually no friction in acquiring new users, this is because the app doesn’t require any account creation. As soon as our app is launched, the user will be able to directly exchange locations immediately. Undoubtedly, this lead to the incredible amount of downloads, and active users that we our app has acquired.

REASON FOR SALE

Find My Friends have been developed by two persons who enjoys developing simple and intuitive applications. However, due to other obligations (mostly family and work), we do not have the time to support it as much as we would like to.

  

DEVELOPMENT

The application was developed with Android Studio 2.x.x. All server-related files were implemented using the PHP language, whereas graphics (icons, etc) was done using Adobe Photoshop.

  

OPERATION

In order to keep this app operational, (a) one simply has to make sure that the source code uses the latest APIs published from Facebook and Google, and (b) get a simple virtual machine from its preferred cloud services provider. Currently, the app needs ~12$/month for the server hosting fees.

  

MARKETING

In order to establish the app, one has to get an Android developer account from Google at 25 euros for lifetime.

  

INCLUDED IN THE SALE

  • Full source code of the application developed with the latest version of Android Studio

  • Back-end server code (phpMyAdmin – mySQL)

  • Photoshop source files for logos, banners, etc

  • Associated web site ( http://nliteapps.com )

o   Landing page, based on the paid Wordpress theme appDev

o   Blog with many tutorials on how to use the app ( http://nliteapps.com/?page_id=5203 )

  • Associated social media pages

o   Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/nliteapps/ )

o   Google+ ( https://plus.google.com/+Nliteapps )

o   Twitter ( https://twitter.com/nLiteApps )

o   Youtube ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7LduIXIXi490CC7bxcK2tg )

  • Beta version available: the current public version is based on phpMyAdmin – MySQL code. However, we have already a beta version that has been tested on Google’s Firebase platform ( https://firebase.google.com/ )

   

FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES

Find my Friends have already achieved a very good revenue, downloads, and active users statistics while still just limited to Android. We believe that if the app is also implemented for use in IOS devices, that alone will make the current revenue to double. Furthermore, a fully web-based version can be created to sync with the apps. Thus providing to users a complete ecosystem synced across all types of devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, smartwatches, etc). Considering all of that will undoubtedly lead to a lucrative future opportunity to any interested buyers, most probably tripling the revenue that it currently has.

  

SELLER'S NOTE

The app’s main revenue comes from Ads by Admob. The app also integrates Google’s in-app billing, so users can buy subscriptions and remove ads. Expenses are only about 12$/month for the backend server.

Why have the earnings decreased so much in recent months?

@robert_kotula Because the app needs to be updated for the latest devices with newer screen sizes and densities, in order to offer the best experience.

Does the decline have anything to do with Google now offering location share service directly through Google maps? If not, what differentiates your app from this?

@appkid I recently used that feature. The difference appears to be features 5 - 10 minus 9. Unfortunately (in my opinion) these are not killer features that would make someone switch and if they were Google would just implement them. I love the idea and even had this back in 2004 before it was feasible to develop myself. Just wish it were a viable product so I could buy it.

@sitebuyers Hi, thank you for your comment and kind words. Let me also build a bit on top your comment. Our app targets on providing its mentioned features with the user contacts from major social media. Now we support Facebook, Google+ and email contacts. One can easily expand the app to other networks as well (e.g. Linked In, Instagram, Twitter, etc). So although the Google Maps does offer only part of our app's features, still it can also be used with the user's Google contacts.

@appkid The decline is mostly because the app is not updated to support all latest devices with newer screen sizes, hence maybe certain users do not get the optimal experience. The beta version that is ready (7.02) and not published is already optimized for the newest devices though, so the buyer can use it directly.

Regarding the app comparing to others, as mentioned it allows users to enjoy the app features with all contacts from major social networks, such as Facebook, Google+, email contacts, something that no other app provides. The app can be easily expanded to support more networks, such as Instagram, Twitter and Linked In, allowing the buyer to build a complete ecosystem. Moreover, the app provides notifications when contacts are nearby, location recording, defining map zones (safe / dangerous ones) and get notified when a contact enters or leaves them, and finally saving his/her parking spot.

Kindly, let me know in case you would like more details on a certain feature.
