 What kind of current percentage of refunds are developers typically seeing
on the market? More than a 5%?

Thanks,
Shane

Current Percentage of Refunds on Android Market?

For my $0.99 game (which does not have a free demo version available
yet), the current refund rate for orders that are passed the refund
deadline (so they have either been charged or refunded) is 43%.

Obviously there have been major reliability problems with the Market
this weekend and many of those people may have requested a refund
because their download failed, so it's too early to draw any
conclusions.

 For me, maker of "The Gube", a $0.99 app, the cancellation rate is
about 33%. It has been hovering between 25% and 35%.
But my app has been in the market for only a few days. So, i don't
know how reliable this statistic is. :-)

I just wanted to update this thread in case someone reads this old
message in the archives and is scared away from the platform by the
43% figure. In the last week my return rate has been around 11%. I
have added a demo version now, so presumably that accounts for some of
the difference.

 For what is worth I am seeing about 40% cancellation. About 75% of
those cancellations are within 2 mins of the authorization so I assume
those are mainly download issues.

1. Get timing information about key events

Hello,

I'm doing my thesis work on resource management on android and I want
to be able to measure the "responsiveness" of an application to figure
out if the application get enough resources and is scheduled often
enough.

So what I want is a way to insert timestamps on events, e.g. button
clicks, when they are created and when they are consumed. This way I
can get the "responsiveness" of the application. But I have a hard
time of finding exactly where the events are created and also
consumed.

In Handler.java there is the handleCallback(Message message) method
which I can insert the end time stamp. I tried to add a long variable
in the Message class and that worked well (had to rebuild the api
though). So my problem is to find the place where the button click is
generated and where the message that corresponds to that event is
being created so I can add a time stamp.

I also welcome other suggestions on how to measure the
"responsiveness" of an application or other way to measure how well an
application performs.

Kind regards,
Samuel
