This post is intended to cover tips on how to make an iPhone app – this includes iPad apps as well as the Android market – as you will be able to apply this knowledge on all app markets.
1. You do not need to be a programmer to make an iPhone app
The first thing you must understand is that you do not need to be a programmer to create iPhone apps (or any kind of apps). However it is strongly recommended that you familiarize yourself with the development process as this will only give you the upper hand over the others.
Because if you know the development process, when you do hire a programmer to create the app for you, you will know when he is doing things the right way – and even know how to hire a programmer who understands how to make an app.
2. As mentioned in the first point, hire a programmer
I don’t understand why, but so many people seem to think that hiring someone would cost thousands of dollars and requires a level of expertise which takes years; this is simply not true. Many people who have had great success with making applications are first time app developers.
Yes it does cost to develop an app, but it does not need to cost thousands – the average app cost should be from $350 up to $500; the other cost would be joining the Apple developers market for $100 a year.
3. Your Application ideas?
Many people would love the idea of making an app, but don’t have strong detailed plans on exactly what they want in their app; this is why they always fail. Before you even take another step towards creating an app, make sure that you have detailed plans on exactly how you want your iPhone or iPad app to look like – this includes design as well as full level of functionality.
4. Learn About Apple and the Market
Before even designing an app further, its vital to know that if your app will be accepted into the Apple or Android market – Apple are slightly more strict on the types of products that they allow to enter their market; so be sure to study the apps that never made it through to the market and stay clear from them.
5. Launching your Application
When launching, remember to make sure you have an online presence – simply launching inside the Apple or Android store is not enough – you got to get it known on the internet, and for that, it is highly recommended that you have a website just for that app – its best to use WordPress when setting up websites for this, as they are fast and professional when properly set up.
