How many people now own a Apple iPhone?
How many people download applications for the iPhone every single day?
There are currently (at time of writing) over 90,000 applications available for download in the App Store via your iPhone!
So many people that I meet, that I speak with, that I work with have said the exact same words to me – “wouldn’t this be a great idea as an application for my iPhone!”
I created my very own application for the iPhone earlier this year but I never took it further than that and I also had it submitted into the App Store as a ‘free app’ therefore I did not receive any money from it. To this date, that very application has had a mind blowing number of downloads of which I have only updated a handful of times therefore it is still in demand within that niche.
I became very interested into the developing side of things for the iPhone through their Cocoa programming and it was quite enjoyable yet very annoying at times to get things the way you wanted them to be but, since the very first application that I have made myself, I have developed 2 other applications that I have released into the App Store for download at a cost of £0.99 for the full version and for FREE as a trial download. It has just been amazing to see the amount of downloads for my applications that happen on a daily basis and it does make you feel proud yet very powerful to think that you have done something that people from across the globe are making use of. At first with one of my applications, there was quite a bit of feedback that asked for getting some parts of it tweaked up and I did spend most hours of my days getting it right and it becomes a game because you are never satisfied until it is perfect and it is only perfect after you have tried it tested it over and over again!
But in the end, the result is well worth it.
I have been told (please do not quote me) that the Apple App Market makes about £123 million per month just by the App Store! This figure to me is just amazing on its and and to be a part of that is a good feeling!
