I am in the process of creating an app.
What I'd like to do is:
- make the app with reasonable functionality available in the store for free
- give the user the possibility to buy extra features to be added to that same app
So I do not want to add extra apps with those features, but keep the free app as a base and then add features by adding stuff to the db of the app.

Of course it is possible to do it using a separate website, but I'd like to do it right away using the store.

Anyone knowing how to go about that???

TIA, Arie

As my understanding , if i am getting it on right way,

If it is a client server app than you can manage it through web api like

suppose there are 10 feature available in base app. In your web api there should be a parameter like "added feature" which value should be 0 initially. As your user will add some feature the value of "added feature should increase". app will check this parameter and add the UI in dynamic time.

Thanks. But really I'd like to do it via the Play store. Is that also possible?

Yes you can update your app with added feature. As you will update your app on google play that will update the existing app with added features.
