Hi everyone- Jesse Waites here, Founder and CEO of Beacon Hill Apps. We are based in Boston and make iOS and Android apps for individuals and corporations. As a developer with experience in dealing with clients, I was asked to write a guest post about helping regular people bring their app concepts to reality. There are a few technical and legal hurdles that you, as an app developer, will have to go through to make it happen, but no worries – I’m an expert and I’ve got you covered.
Now that the app sales ecosystem has been around for a few years, it seems apparent that the smartphone software industry is here to stay. New platforms and devices are still launching (looking at you, Windows 7 phone), so clever folks that are attentive to the marketplace can still do very well for themselves. Whether you sell it for 99 cents or give it away for free and collect ad revenue, there is a very good chance that your app will be profitable, especially if you can keep a few things in mind.
