Making Your 3G iPhone Pay – Profiting From iPhone Applications

Hi to all, this is my first foray into the world of articles and I am hoping that my first attempt, will open a new doorway of possibilities for those of you looking for a cool ,exciting and fun new way to make some additional money creating and marketing iPhone uiuc self service; especially if you already own an iPhone. Unless you have been hidden under a rock or orbiting a planet somewhere, you won’t have failed to have experienced the hype and enthusiasm surrounding Apple’s 3G iPhone.

It was an immediate hit, due to its innovative design and features. It is classified as a smartphone and is internet and multimedia enabled, along with a camera and touch screen capability…and oh yes….you can also use it to text and make phone calls too! The latest version to have been released is the 3GS, boasting improved performance, a more powerful camera and video capability and the cool new addition of voice control.

Perhaps the iPhone is most well known though, for its wide range of amazing applications. iPhone applications (or apps) as they are known, are hotter than ever and people are clamoring to get their hands on the latest apps as they are released. An application is a piece of software you add to your iPhone with some sort of functionality; whether it be a game, an ebook, a fun application etc.

All are accessed through the innovative touch screen capability of the handset, and can be added in as required. There are thousands available and the list is growing daily. The main outlet for these apps, is the iPhone app store where they can be downloaded for free or for varying fees.

What many people don’t realise though, is that there is a growing market for custom iPhone applications, which can be created by by anyone with a bit of know how. It isn’t difficult and is actually quite fun. If you come up with a really cool or useful app, it will sell like hotcakes and can make you a lot of money. One of the silliest but most profitable apps is one called the iFart application! I don’t think I need to explain the app. Needless to say it is hilarious, and to date still pulls in over 10 k per day for its designer, Joel Comm.

If you have ever created an application on Facebook, you understand that it is not difficult, even if you are not a computer genius.The easiest way to create an iPhone application is to purchase software that is made for this purpose. If you can follow the prompts on a software package, you can easily create your own iPhone application. This is the best way that you can get started with this process.

An iPhone application is called a widget. It is not difficult to get widget tools either. You can get generic widget software to create your application. You will need to go through a debug step though, before you can upload your new app to your Apple account; if you wish to go down that road.

If you are very tech savvy, you might want to create your own application by using basic internet tools. Many of the applications for the iPhone are internet related. By working with a site and basic iPhone technology skills, you can create an iPhone application. If you can build a widget, you can make money by selling it outright on your own website, without having to use the Apple site.

Creating applications for the iPhone is just like creating anything for a website. If you do not have a website, you should get one. Whereas it used to be very expensive to have a site designed years ago, much has changed. There are many web applications out there that will help you design your own website. You can download the applications that you create on your computer to your iPhone just as you would download any other application. You can choose to use the application for yourself, or you can also choose to distribute it to others.

There are various web tools that you can use for free online. You should look for web tools that are both PC and Mac compatible. Just as the iPod is compatible with both PC and Mac users, you should be sure that the tools you use are compatible with a Mac product.

Creating applications is not difficult. Once you understand how to use software that can create the applications that you want, you can usually find tutorials online. Make your first application an easy one, such as a feed from a local news site. This will give you a general idea of the basic components of the iPhone application.

If you have web design knowledge, it will be even easier for you to create an iPhone application. If you do not have any ability when it comes to web design or are not computer savvy, but have some great ideas on iPhone applications that you can create,you can still do so by working with a partner.
