App Creation Series Announced – Beginners Guide to App Design, Development and Marketing

There are literally hundreds of thousands of applications and games available to download using the digital marketplace. These range from basic clocks to fully fledged 3D gaming experiences rivalling even the leading portable devices that usually only specialise in this field.

Your challenge is competing with this vast library of already impressive offerings which, although a daunting prospect to the fledgling traveller, can be navigated successfully with the right ideas and implementation. Whether you want to create an income generator or simply desire recognition for your efforts, this book will aim to show you the path and inspire your imagination to overflow with possibilities.

In a series of articles hosted right here on my personal website (blog), I will guide you through the wilderness and raise your chances of realising your development dreams by detailing different routes with this light hearted tour of the Apps terrain. Featuring a myriad of exciting and surprising examples, you can glean important suggestions for your own creation.

  • Preparation is Key
    The most important part of any development is having a clear vision and the skills to implement it. Investigating the possibilities to aid in creating your own application or game, while also offering thought provoking inspiration.
  • Designing your Vision
    Fantastic you have an idea, yet the next step is just as crucial to your success. A bizarre layout, jerky animations, confusing navigation or lacking interface can destroy even the most exciting applications, so let’s follow a few simple rules and benefit from the application digital library.
  • Reaching your Goals
    Maximise your profitability with marketing advice and strategies to earn yourself a spot on the winner’s podium without upsetting your faithful community.
  • Leader of the Pack
    Learn how to mimic the success achieved, avoiding potentially crippling mistakes from exclusive interviews with leading developers and publishers on the mobile platform. With years of experience, it is certainly wise to listen to their business acumen.
