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.
