Alternative, non-click baitey title: Adventures in App Pricing :)

Over the seven years I've been developing Android Apps I've done numerous experiments with app pricing models and I want to share my thoughts. We'll talk about the evolution of pricing options and I'll bring out a bunch of data I've collected over the years. This will be an extended version of my GDG talk last August (with more data!)

Also, I wasn't kidding about the one neat trick to make more money with little effort, we'll talk about how two of my apps made 60%+ increased revenue with no functional changes.
