Have you ever thought about writing an iPhone application? If so then today I came across an excellent how to write an iPhone app ebook that takes you through all the stages of developing an iPhone application from start to finish.
The Apple iPhone App Store and its Apps are one of the hottest things in early adoption technology at the moment. People have been making an absolute killing writing simple fun applications such as iFart (that simply makes a farting sound when you press a button) and achieving something half as popular would be amazing.
Just imaging coming up with a an idea for a very simple but fun app and you spend a few evenings putting it together and then get it uploaded to the app store. Two weeks later it gets a few mentions on some techy forums and before you know it the app has gone viral! It sells for 99c and you make a small amount for each sale but the sales are going crazy. Before you know it each of those little pieces is amounting to a nice little earner.
That is just a pipe dream but it shows what is possible with a good idea and a bit of luck. I am definitely going to get started on learning how to develop applications for the iPhone and the ebook looks to take away the pain of starting from scratch on your own.
I'll keep you posted how I get on with my iPhone app development and I will be making it one of my lifes challenges to get an application on the app store!
If you are starting out in iPhone development please leave me a message and let me know how you are getting on! I'd love to hear from you - good or bad.
