I have been most fortunate to have built a very good business in mobile apps. The vast majority of my income comes from mobile apps on the two major app stores including Google Play and Apple.
I have built this website specifically to help people who would also like to build an income like mine.
It all started when I became a stay at home dad. We had our first child and my wife had a job which was more secure than mine because I ran my own business. She went back to work after maternity leave and I closed down my business so that I could look after the children.
I had no help. It was all down to me whilst my wife worked long hours. I was literally knee deep in nappies because the children were born very close together. I was looking after two babies!
But I wanted to be able to make a financial contribution to the family finances. I accidentally came across an advert about making mobile apps. This was when they were very new. It seemed like it was worth investigating so I looked into it more – and I’m extremely pleased that I did because I have a full time income from my portfolio of mobiles apps.
I started off with Google Play apps and this went very well. I made enough money to buy a Mac and that meant that I could also develop for the Apple App Store, too. This increased my earning significantly.
People have asked me about becoming an app developer once they have found out what I do for a job. There are a great deal of barriers that I have had to overcome – more than just making the apps or knowing about coding – and I have often wondered how I can help other people get into mobile app development. Well, this website is the answer.
I will be doing two distinct things on this website. The first is to share with you some of the knowledge that I have built up over the years. I hope that this will mean that you will find your road to becoming a mobile app developer a lot easier, as result. There’s s a lot to learn if you are going to create a meaningful, regular income from mobile apps. These pages are designed to get you there as soon as possible.
The other area I will help with is actually building the mobile apps. I will offer you access to a robust and easy to use mobile app maker so that you quickly create your mobile apps without knowing any code. You will have the option to build them with code, too, if you wish as the app maker will allow you to download the apps as projects that you can open and edit on your computer, but only if you want to do so. You will be able to make them without any code if you wish.
Here’s to the Independent App Developer community!
