I gave a talk a couple weeks ago at 360iDev Mini in beautiful Greenville, South Carolina, called The Anatomy of a Successful App. It is essentially a summary of my App Making guide, covering — in brief — what it takes to build a successful app, from idea, to design, to marketing.
Check it out here:
If you thought the video was helpful, you should check out the App Making guide I released yesterday. It is designed to be a comprehensive guide to succeeding on the App Store.
I also wanted to say thank you to all the awesome folks who supported the App Making launch yesterday. All your support resulted in App Making first day sales being comparable to one of our successful app launches. It even got up to #5 on Product Hunt. That is pretty awesome because if we can make education a sustainable business, it helps us do more of it.
p.s. The 360iDev conference was also a great opportunity for my daughter of two weeks to learn the finer points of Swift pointers versus Structs, among other things. She enjoyed it.
p.s.s. I have recently been on a bunch of different podcasts, in case you are interested: MobileAppChat on app marketing, The Ray Wenderlich podcast talking about how to meet people in the app industry and launch successful apps, Novice No Longer on Swift, design, and teaching, Iterate on Hours, and My Appventure on my story. Phew! It has been busy around here.
