    from ComputorEdge Online - General Edition by Wally Wang


    Increase your options for making money in the mobile market. If you've fantasized about writing your own iPhone/iPad app, be prepared for a long learning curve, but with dedication and persistence, even non-programmers can learn to create an iPhone/iPad app.

    I've often wondered how much money some of these App writers actually make dollar wise. It's a small investment to get setup with the App store.

    It could take you more than a year to gain your first 100 dollars. All depend on what application you have created and how good you are marketing it. If you just coded it and place it in the apps store like I said it could take you forever to recover 100 dollars.

    The competition is also a factor that you should count, if your app have 100 similar ones in the store your chances of anybody buying yours is 1/100.

    competition is a big factor, it seems there are five apps for every one. that really makes it tuff to turn an investment. A lot of programers do it for fun, but some of those guys and gals are putting in a ton of work to make it sound like fun. I tried a few things in File Maker and it got old pretty quick. I had a few ideas going i thought was pretty cool but after spending lots of hours and not getting far i gave up... some of the programs these guys and gals write are brillant,, i give them a big hand.. to bad thats about all they get

    No Just that. AFAIK they have to pay $100 every year. That really sucks.

    I'm more for the formula used in some pocket pc markets like PocketGear, they change you 30% ~ 40% from every sale. If you don't sell you don't pay.

    Frankly, I'm amazed at the profusion and diversity of software out there. It's amazing that anyone could make a living doing this at all. I'm quite sure that many will fold soon.

    Even hardware such as covers and cases, are they making money?

    Interesting quickstart to develop and post iphone/ipad applications

    I found this tutorial useful to jumpstart the process of developing and posting applications on the itunes stores. It might be little expensive, but worth the money!
