    Why You Should Become An iPhone Apps Developer

    There are 4 reasons why you should be an iPhone/iPad Apps developer:

    1. There is a huge market opportunity
    As I mentioned in the last post, the Apple's Apps Store hits 10 billion downloads since the store debuted in July 2008. Besides, there are roughly 90 million iPhones and 7.1 million iPads sold so far. Undoubtedly, the number of iPhone/iPad sold is increasing rapidly. I guess there are few of them sold while you are reading this post! Therefore, I can't find any reason why you shouldn't invest into this market.

    2. You can become a developer without any technical skills.
    Everyone thought that designing Apps is hard and gave up when they saw lots of coding and programming language. Actually, the main factor to success is to be creative and enthusiastic. Unlike computer programs that requires complicated algorithms and instructions, developing mobile Apps is relatively easy. Join any course or tutorial recommended in this blog and you will realise that developing Apps is not that hard. However, you have to create something that stand out from the others and learn to market your Apps. With that, I guarantee you can generate profits easily.

    3. Only require small investment to earn money.
    Developing iPhone/iPad Apps is a job with low entry barriers. Where everyone can afford to invest in. You only have to sign up for some courses that normally costs less than $100 and you will learn how to develop Apps.

    4. Advertising from your Apps also generate profits.
    Advertising in your Apps is a great way to earn money. Similar to PPC (Pay Per Click) ads from Google Adsense, there are few mobile advertising platforms such as Admob, iAd, inMobi and Adfonic that display ads in your Apps. To attract more people to use your Apps, you can offer free Apps for users to download and earn money from advertising. You can earn tons of money if your Apps get into the top 100 list!!!

    So, if you are interested to earn money as a developer, no matter part-time or full-time, joining development course is you first step to be a successful developer. There is no harm trying as you will definitely gain some experience which is useful for your future life.

    P.S. Next post I gonna review about How to Make iPhone Applications With No Programming Experience. Dont't miss it!!

    iPhone Dev Secrets Review

    Hello readers! This is my new blog focusing on products review about iPhone/iPad's Apps development tools. There are certainly many Apps development tutorials, course, books etc that we can find on the Internet. Of course, designing an App and selling it in Apps Store is a great way to earn money, since the Apple's Apps Store hits 10 billion downloads recently. 10 billion!!! Surely there is a huge marketing opportunity in it. So, the main purpose of creating this blog is to recommend some products that you can consider if you want to develop your own Apps and sell it in Apps Store successfully.

    So, here is my first review about iPhone Dev Secrets. iPhone Dec Secrets is a website that provide a development multimedia course for those who decided to earn money by selling iPhone/iPad Apps but has no programming & marketing skills. In fact, the owner himself had tried to start his business to sell Apps with no technical skills at first. He had gone through a lot of challenges, read a lot of books about iPhone development, failed to sell his first  Apps and eventually realised that successful marketing is the key to promote your product(Apps). Finally, he decided to gather all his knowledge and resources and put up a comprehensive course on iPhone and iPad development secrets.

    This course is specially for newbies(including me) to learn ways to develop an App and generate profits from it. You only require 3 things to join this course : basic iPhone & computer knowledge, money(of course) and desire to learn and success. Looks easy, but many people gave up halfway when they failed to earn money and expect overnight success.

    Here is the summary of the four weeks course:

     First Week
    • Cover the great variety of basic information on how to start and apply yourself in different areas of game and application development: from creating your first “Hello World” application.
    • Develop your first game with Cocos 2d toolkit.
    • Discover how to create your first web application using iWebKit and animated application using Adobe Flash CS5. 
    • Discuss how to debug your application and get rid of the bugs so you have all the knowledge necessary to dive into more in-depth information over the following weeks.
    Second & Third Week 
    • Discover different iPhone development tools starting from simple Xcode to more advanced stuff like Cocos 2d & iWebKit secrets & tricks.
    • Learn the 2d and 3d editing software for game and app development and some sort of “cheat”-kinds of software & tricks - for those of you who want to use advanced stuff without wasting months on learning it. 
    Fourth Week
    • Cover the most important part of the story – how to market your game and finally make money by selling it in the App Store.
    • Cover the most recent trends in game development – what genres are popular now and in the next year, what are the best converting ways to promote the game today and next year.
      Throughout the course, you will learn only practical information and step by step instructions without boring theories & hard core programming, which is a compact and useful course to learn from start(developing) to the end(marketing). The course is conducted in a easy and fun way with examples, tutorials and information compiled in an easily understood manner.

        In my opinion, this is a suitable course for those who really has the interest to earn money by selling Apps but don't have the ideas on how to start it. You have to invest some money-$99(total fee) or you can take the $1 trial for 30 days, which can be canceled any time.
