Yep, that title is a pretty bold statement, especially when I am writing the first blog post for our new company. However, I can tell you now that not too long ago my business partner and I were wondering why we would bother with developing mobile apps. This post was created to try and give other readers a heads up into the troubles they can run into!
Let me tell you why… (We’ve all run into the same frustration as the guy above).
I just want to start off by saying that if anyone tells you that developing a game, a utility or any other iPhone or Android application is easy and that you can make $100,000 in the time it takes you to break a sweat at the gym then I urge you to kindly say ‘thank you for your advice’ and then walk off or go work out harder at the gym. Alternatively, you could say the same in fewer words… I’ll leave that up to you!
Do you remember when you woke up one morning and thought to yourself that your app idea could possibly be the next big thing? Well so do we and you don’t need me to tell you that in that moment of sheer brilliance you feel like you are only a few short steps away from a one way first class ticket to your favourite destination to sip on your favourite cocktail while lounging back on a sun bed (that’s the first thing I am going to do… see swim up bar).
It is hard not to think that way when you hear about the people who spent 6 months (or less) on an idea and are now multi-millionaires. I’ll be the first to tell you that even for those people it was not as easy as flicking a switch.
The Money Maker App Our test app
I wanted to call this section ‘The Money Maker App’ because that is exactly what we thought we had, but considering I am now looking back on this, it is safe to say this was ‘Our Test App’.
