Apple’s iPhone is an enormously successful smartphone owned by millions of people around the world.
One way to make some money for yourself using the popularity of this phone is to create new iPhone apps. There are pieces of software that are sold on Apple’s online App Store and they give you 70% of the proceeds from.
The very first step is to work out what kind of apps would be a good addition to the existing range. There are thousands of them already set up, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for some more well thought ones.
If you are an iPhone user, then you quite possibly already have some ideas about what types of software could come in handy for other users. If you aren’t then looking at the existing apps, reading some reviews and asking iPhone owning friends for ideas could work.
Once you have an idea for an app, making it come reality isn’t as difficult as you might think. The best way to do this is to outsource your work using a site such as oDesk or Elance and search for a programmer who could do this for you.
If your first app is a success and you make money from it, then it could be just the incentive you need to build on this and come up with more and more ideas. If it isn’t such a big success then you have to work out why. Was it too expensive? Too basic? Too complicated? Too similar to other apps?
The best way to work out what works and what doesn’t is simply by trying out some ideas and paying attention to the results.
It may seem a bit like a pipe dream but if things work out really well there is a chance that you could make this your main income source. Other people are already doing this and the secret is to come up with a range of different apps that give a constant income while you carry on coming up new and better ideas for future apps.
