Launching a Mobile App

Hi experts!

I wish to launch a mobile app in Apple and Android store

How much does Apple/Android charge to put my app in their store?

If my app costs $10, how much fees do I need to give them?

Just wondering, do app owners charge their customers using other means, other than by apple/android?

For android here are the guides. Google take 30% transaction fees.

I have no idea about apple but here is a link

For apple, unlike android, you need to buy a developer license https://developer.apple.com/devcenter/ios/index.action and that will cost $99 or enterprise $299 https://developer.apple.com/programs/start/ios/ 

You keep 70% of the amount you charge https://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/distribute.html

Any alternatives as i realise the vendors keep 30%
Scott Fell, EE MVEDeveloper & EE ModeratorCommented:
There are no other viable alternatives especially with IOS.    Part of the 30% goes to payments and support of payments and developing the app store and more importantly, bringing prospects to your app.  

With ios  you can provision up to 100 people per $99 fee to use your app as testers or as I do with small corporate groups.  You can also get the corporate license for $299
The iOS Developer Enterprise Program is intended for companies who create proprietary, in-house iOS apps for internal deployment within the company only. A valid Dun & Bradstreet (D-U-N-S) number is required for program enrollment.
If I am enrolled in the iOS Developer Enterprise Program, can I distribute my apps on the App Store?
No. The ability to distribute apps on the App Store is only available to developers enrolled in the standard iOS Developer Program. The iOS Developer Enterprise Program only allows you to distribute your apps to employees or members of your organization through Ad Hoc distribution.

70% of something is better then 100% of nothing.  Remember, they created the eco system for all of this and they didn't do it to be nice citizens.
