Developing an iPhone app and getting it submitted to I Tunes can become much easier and faster if the developer works as per certain pre-approved guidelines.
The market of iPhone apps is one among the biggest and most rated e-market with millions of users. Programmers are churning their brains real hard to come up with unique iPhone apps. Business firms are using these apps has one of the most handy and convenient way to reach out their targeted customers. Through a custom developed iPhone app they can better project their services and products, and also make these more easily accessible to their customers. Taking the cue, business firms are paying in bulk to the programmers to whom they outsource app development. If you are one among such business owner or anyone who needs to get an iPhone app developed for yourself or your client, and this article can be of great help.
If you have a unique idea for a mobile app and you know the basic of programming languages, you can yourself develop an app with some basic arrangement and by sending $ 99 (USD). This article doesn’t concentrate over programming part, but it covers all other requisite points that you will require for app generation; probably you can hire a programmer for the programming part.
Level One: To start with, first you will need a unique idea for the app; the idea should be new or up gradation of an already existing idea, otherwise no one would be interested at using app or paying for it.
Level Two: As I-phone is a product of apple, so currently the I-app development tools are only available for Mac users. Moreover, even to upload your finished app into I-tunes, you need to have a Mac. So, in any case you need to have a Mac.
Level Three: Now, you have to get yourself registered as an official Apple Developer. Registration is free, simple, and it is to be done once only. Later, the same password and user name can be used for your iTunes account.
Level Four: After being an official developer, you need to download the Software Development Kit (SDK ) for iPhone ; the downloaded version should be compatible with your operating system. The downloading will take time as it’s a huge download that include all the requisite documents, codes, video tutorial etc.
Level Five: Next, you need to download XCode. The use of this download can be best understood in the explanation given by Apple, which reads “Xcode is a complete, full-featured IDE built around a smooth workflow that integrates the editing of source code, with the build and compile steps, through to a graphical debugging experience – all without leaving the view of your source code.”
Level Six: After doing the necessary downloads, you can start with the designing of the app using the templates provided in the SDK.
Level Seven: To develop the app, you need to know objective C programming languages. If you have the basic knowledge, you can buy any relevant book and move forward. Otherwise, for this sticky part, you need to hire a programmer.
Level Eight: By now, your app will get ready, and you need to test it yourself. For the purpose, you will get an iPhone Simulator in the SDK itself. While doing you testing, try out as many bugs as possible, which you believe the prospective app users can think off.
Level Nine: After self testing, you can load you app into iTunes at the cost fee of $99 (USD).
Level Nine: Once uploaded, you can invite the others in the app community to test your app with all the possible bugs and to give you the feedbacks. Based on which, you will be able to make necessary changes.
Level Ten: After getting the app tested by the app community member, you are ready to submit your app to I tunes for approval. Uploading into I-tunes can be done from the community itself; approval may take some time.
Level Eleven: After approval, your app gets listed in the market of I tunes. If it’s a paid app, check out how the money to roll in to shore; and if it’s free, check out the traffic to measure the success and acceptance of your app.
Conclusion: However, your job doesn’t finish with just uploading the app, as you need to take care of its publicity as well. Use the platform of Facebook and twitter to rightly promote your newly built app.
