70 Android App Ideas You Can Start Today [2021]

Interested in starting a android app business in 2021?

We put together 70 of the best android app businesses you can start in today.

For each business idea, we’ll show you real-world examples of other android app businesses to help you see what it really takes.

Here's the full list:

1. Start a travel rewards app ($1.8M/year)

Alexi Vereschaga from Bethlehem, Judea and Samaria, Palestinian Territory started AwardWallet, LLC almost 17 years ago, a travel rewards app.

  • Revenue: $150,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 29
  • Location: Bethlehem, Judea and Samaria, Palestinian Territory

I graduated college in 2003 and with all the free time on my hands (all I had left was just a regular 8-5 job as a sales engineer for an enterprise software company) decided that I want to start a business and build some type of IT product.

Back then I had a coworker, Todd Mera, who was traveling a lot and he showed me a stack of loyalty cards and said that it’s a real pain to track all of them, so he basically came up with the idea for AwardWallet. We developed a prototype and launched the first version about 8 months later.

In parallel, we also built other projects like a horse classifieds website, a website for summer camps that allowed parents to communicate with their kids, software for managing Microsoft virtual servers, and a few other projects all from completely different areas. We didn’t know if any of them would succeed but wanted to increase our odds by having multiple projects at the same time. AwardWallet happened to be the one that really took off so overtime we decommissioned all the other websites and focused solely on AwardWallet.

2. Start an online video editing business ($72K/year)

Sabba Keynejad from London, England, United Kingdom started VEED about 3 years ago, a online video editing business.

  • Revenue: $6,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: London, England, United Kingdom

Tim and I met during an online hackathon. During the hackathon participants were encouraged to meetup for real. We actually got on really well, and stayed friends and kept spitballing ideas for a startup for years.

At this time, I was a design student at Central Saint Martins and I had recently won a competition for Sony Music creating an interactive music video for the band Hurts with my friend Virgil. Then soon after graduation, I started working as a creative technologist in London for a bunch of different advertising & branding agencies and a few startups too.

3. Start an exercise app ($12K/year)

Joel Runyon from Austin, Texas, USA started MoveWell almost 5 years ago, a exercise app.

  • Revenue: $1,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Austin, Texas, USA

I created a blog called IMPOSSIBLE, designed to test a series of experiments on myself. I was tired of backing down from challenges that seemed impossible and I wanted to see if I could attract a following of others who felt the same.

The plan worked and IMPOSSIBLEHQ.com has become an active community that takes on fitness and mindset challenges on a regular basis.

One item on that list was to run seven ultra-marathons on seven continents, raising money to build 7 schools. I called it the 777 Project.

4. Start a meal planner app ($0/year)

Dianne L Chen from Irvine, California, USA started Arise Performance Labs, Inc almost 3 years ago, a meal planner app.

  • Revenue: $0/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Irvine, California, USA

At 24, I climbed up flight stairs - and was suddenly out of breath. I realized I was at my heaviest weight, sitting most of the time, and eating out every other day. Determined to change, I jumped right into keto and cardio classes. Spoiler alert - it didn’t work. Next, I exercised like crazy while under-eating at the ill advice of my trainer. Burnt out, I decided to track calories & macros. For 18 months, I spent hours calculating and logging my food. Although I had lost 30 lbs, I could NOT keep up the lifestyle anymore.

I wanted a way to eat healthily and get results without the daily food obsession, logging, and time spent calculating recipes to fit the numbers.

That’s when I thought - what if there was an app that answered “what, when, and how much to eat”? Especially for workout days. One that took care of macro-planning, carb-cycling, and nutrient-timing for my body type & goal. An app that helped me practice mindful eating.

5. Start a travel booking app ($33.6K/year)

Andrew Norton from England, United Kingdom started SkyAlliance over 2 years ago, a travel booking app.

  • Revenue: $2,800/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: England, United Kingdom

It all started at Heathrow Airport. I was and currently still work at the airport as a security officer in Terminal 5.

When I first started the role I had learned how to develop software, code and also web design. However, I didn’t know what direction of business to pursue with these skills. In the role of a security officer, you interact with the masses of passengers passing through every working day.

6. Start a team collaboration app ($12M/year)

Michael Hollauf from Vienna, Austria started Meister over 14 years ago, a team collaboration app.

  • Revenue: $1,000,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 85
  • Location: Vienna, Austria

It all started about 15 years ago when I worked together with my co-founder Till at another tech company. I was based in London at the time, Till was in New York and later Munich. We both loved IT but had grown a bit bored with our jobs, so we decided to start our own business. The first business was an outsourcing company, where we did web projects for other companies with a Romanian development team. This was good fun but hard work and tough to grow.

At that time the news was that Google had just acquired a company called Writely and turned their product into what is now Google Docs, which we started using almost immediately to collaborate on projects at work. We were also using MindManager, at the time the only serious mind mapping software, to brainstorm product ideas and also to conduct and organize customer meetings. MindManager was a standard OS-dependent program that had to be installed locally and licensed for about $300, which made it very hard to share our mind maps with anybody else, as they would have had to buy the software as well. Also, you couldn't collaborate at all, which is something quite important for a brainstorming tool.

If your product isn’t sticky, no amount of content marketing will offset your user churn.

7. Start a language learning app ($224K/year)

Alex Chernikov from Berlin, Germany started Gikken ago, a language learning app.

  • Revenue: $18,635/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Berlin, Germany

Gikken’s foundation was laid in 2011 or so. I don’t remember the exact year but I was in high school. I was amidst my most active English learning years. I was trying to read as many articles, blogs, essays, etc in English as possible. At some point, an idea that it’d be great to double click on words to get them translated right there struck me. It was the early days of Google Chrome that wasn’t the most popular browser yet. And, I think it already could translate pages entirely, but it was totally useless for me because when I can understand 80% of the text, why would I translate it entirely? It’s also terrible for mastering a language. Guessing the meanings of words from the context works better for memorizing new vocabulary. The more effort your brain takes, the stronger neural connections are.

So, physiology aside, I wanted a fast way to translate single words I didn’t understand or double-check sentences. The previous flow involved copying it, switching to a new tab with Google Translate opened there, translating it, and then switching back. Terribly inefficient and annoying when you have to do it 10 times per article, 100 times per day.

By the time I was obsessed with this idea, I could already easily implement anything I wanted on the web. I started coding at 13, so I had already at least 2 or so years of experience with copycatting news portals, trying to build my social network (who didn’t!), and reinventing a few popular JavaScript libraries. It was the early days of not only Google Chrome but also Chrome Web Store—the extension store. I made an extension that I needed for my own needs, called Instant Translate, and uploaded it to the Chrome Web Store. Uncunningly, the timing was perfect for organic growth through the store as Instant Translate happened to be one of the first extensions there. The 15-year-old me knew something only about building apps but absolutely nothing about turning them into a business. Thus, I relied on "organic growth". In other words, routinely checking analytics and praying that it grew. I did nothing more than that for the first few years.

8. Start a b2b sales app ($3.24M/year)

Steve Benson from San Francisco, California, USA started Badger Maps almost 10 years ago, a B2B sales app.

  • Revenue: $270,000/ month
  • Founders: 3
  • Employees: 42
  • Location: San Francisco, California, USA

I started the company in 2012 because I saw a problem that I thought could be solved with software.

My background was in field sales, so I understood the problem than this end user had. I started this company to solve the problem I had faced as a rep.

You should work for large companies for only a very short amount of time. You tend to learn all you are going to learn in large organizations very quickly, then once you can do the task that you are going to do, it becomes ‘rinse, wash, repeat’.
