Tell him it's a hobby and not something you consider "work" either! Doing something that makes you happy will truly make your quality of life even better!
I thought a job was where you get paid for doing work. I guess not e.e
I know right? OP should say those exact words to the father. You get paid to develop apps, and I'm sure if OP wasn't bringing in that money, and was always asking daddy dearest for money, the dad would have a different view on app developers being a real job. If the dad actually uses the money OP makes from app developing, OP should say, "You sure had fun using the money from my non-job to..." (pay rent/buy groceries/ pay the cable/light/gas/water etc bill) and say for whatever he uses OP's money.
Do what makes YOU happy! If we did what made everyone else happy in life most of us would be severely unhappy/depressed. It makes you happy, it's enjoyable and you make money, maybe your Father is just jealous he's not had a job that enjoyable? In any case be proud of yourself!
