How to make a lot of money with an iPhone app?

First I wolud like to say that anyone can easyly create an Iphone application and make a lot of money by selling it online.The truth is that you don’t nedd to be a computer geek or kind of genius to create an iPhone web application. In fact anyone with little knowledge about using internet and MAC can create an iPhone application. Just make it, put it online and start making money. Frankly, the process is quite easy you just need to follow few simple steps.

Get any idea first, then visit the Apple website and check the Appstore just to check what kind of applications are popular and what type of applications are usefull to the users. Ofcures, the usefull apps are more popular and more profitable.

Ask your friends what kind of apps they use. The reasearch will help you to gather more ideas. Maybe you can combine them all to something genius. 🙂

After you have the clear idea in your mind go to or and find an iPhone SDK developper to make the application for you. It will cost you about $800-1000

App Store

 What should be the price of the iPhone app?

Here are some tips in order to successfully make money from the apps.

  • From a developer’s standpoint, it’s important to take into consideration factors such as how much money and time it took to write your iPhone apps while determining the price of your app.
  • Most successful and popular iPhone apps cost anywhere between $0.99 to $9.99 so if you are planning to charge more, you’d better make sure you have a damn good application.
  • What is the demand for the type of app you’re selling? Are there already similar apps in the Appstore? Then what are other independent developers pricing a similar app?
  • How useful is your apps going to be? If it’s going to help the user go through their day a little easier or help a business save time and money, you can charge more.

To create a successful iPhone app, develop the app practical and small. The smaller the app file, the faster and the more tempting it is to potential buyers. If the app is too big, buyers might not have room for it on their iPhone, so fewer people will buy it, and you can’t make much money with your iPhone app. The smaller and cheaper applications are more wanted because of the faster download speeds and usually the prices is one of the first things consumers pay attention .

Keep your projects small, keep them simple and fun! Create an app that people will love to download over and over again!


Good luck!
