Mobile apps for the iPhone and iPad are really popular right now and will continue to grow in popularity as more and more people learn how to use and create homemade applications. Companies and individuals alike can benefit from creating these apps and use them to gain more customers or to make more money with them. Here is a brief article explaining the new application surge for iPhones and iPads and how you can make money by creating your own homemade apps.
The first thing you should do is do your homework. Do a lot of research to find out what apps are selling and which ones aren’t. The iPhone, iPad app market is super competitive and not everyone who creates an app is going to make money off of it. But, keep in mind that the competition wants you to think it is difficult and expensive and out of your reach, it is not!
You will give yourself a better chance of succeeding in the market by researching the market, finding out what’s hot or you may well have the next big app floating around in your head! Then get the correct software tools and training to make one of these bestselling apps better or create your own. There is a 8th grader that created an app that was downloaded over 2 million times. WOW!
Once you know what you want your app to do, the first thing you will need to do is write down the exact functions it should perform. Then you will need to draw up an illustration of how you want the app to look. Remember the iFart app? Maybe you don’t. Well the person who created it did not know anything about programming or app development at all. They just had the funny idea and took action to make it real.
And now they are averaging about $10,000 per month from this amazingly simple application! Just think about it! How’s that possible? It is with the right tools! And don’t be scared off by the competition.
This person got the basic software, basic training and advice. I am not saying you will make this kind of money but it is possible and can be fun in the process.
Now that you have a better idea of what you want and need, it is up to you to put it together. If you have no experience (and most of us don’t) with application development and code work or what tools/software you will need. Than you’ll of course need to get them. This will ensure that it gets done properly and in a decent amount of time. The right tools to do the right job are essential. You will also need to talk with people who know what you need so you can equip yourself with again the correct tools to accomplish your app creating career and maybe the next huge app.
I think it is a great idea to work at creating a part-time/fulltime business or hobby making your own homemade apps for the iPhone or iPad. It’s the Gold Rush for the 21st Century and apps are hot!
The investment you make in the tools and the time spent learning the process can make you a lot of money and a great career in the long run.
Have fun and make some apps,
