A- There is a section of top 40 new applications in google store and the best part is that they are not among those big brands. The competition is quite low but you need to ensure that the application is good enough to fit for a longer run and all things are easy to check that what the application is all about like screenshots and short videos.
Q- Suggest a good strategy to launch an application? Also, should the application be free or cost or paid?

Even If u have a paid application then have its free version for trial by advertisement, other means as well or at a very minimal cost so the users know they want to pay for it or not. If the user like the application or the trial version, addiction can lead them to upgrade the application to the paid version to play further.
