you get one, market one, design and make one that stands out.
Key thing with anything viral, website or apps, essentially planning. Before you can plan you obviously have to have an idea.
So where do you start? OK here are a few tips for you for planning, developing and selling your Iphone or Android app.
What is the idea? Do you have one? If not think about what you could really use an app for. Will it be functional, fun or informative? Who will your target market be? Will it be free or will you charge for your App?
You can still make money with free apps. There is advertising solutions available that can be paid per click or per view. In fact this can be a very lucrative way to monetise you application. Free apps will also have higher download figures than paid ones.
When planning the development of you app, make it easy to use and easy to share, this will allow people to pass it around and tell the world that it exists.

The development of an app is essential. It has to be robust and user friendly. Why? because if its not, no-one will use or share it. So you have an idea, you know how you want to make money from it, the next step is to research and see if anyone else out there has got an app that does the same thing.
Now, to be honest there will be. However, don’t panic…. The reason you research at this stage is because you will need to make yours better.
Design a brief, and then submit it to app development companies. You can go to websites which allow you to build your own apps for free but these companies tend to make their money by drenching it with adverts that they take the revenue from. Also they tend to be quite simple and not very interesting.
When you have selected a design company, let them crack on.
Tip: when designing a brief, ensure it is as specific as possible and contains a clear vision of what you want to achieve. I am saying this by looking at it from both angles to be honest. When you pay a designer to achieve something for you and its miles off, that’s a nightmare. On the other side it is much easier for a designer to develop something that has a very clear vision.

You can submit your apps for free. Some companies will include this in the price, we do! You can also pay a fee to apple so that they fast track your application. To be honest, if this is in your budget go for it.
From experience the android market place approves apps quickly and you can have it there in no time. The Apple iOS application can be a little bit more complicated. They tend to manually approve everything, so it can take a while.
Think about featuring your app. Yes this costs but it is a bit like pay per click. You can pay for people to see your app.
