It is quite possible to run a very successful business by developing a new app for the iPhone. This smart piece of technology is now owned by a huge number of people in the world, and many of these iPhone owners buy lots of different things to make their iPhone even better. Mobile app developers NYC have permission from Apple to design and market their own applications, and therefore they have the potential to make a lot of money.

Two entrepreneurs who have already seen much success with their iPhone applications are Steve Demeter, who developed Trism, and Ethan Nicholas who developed iShoot. You can do the same if you have an imaginative idea for an application, and some skills in the necessary computer programming languages. You will also have to purchase some tools, such as Apple software.

To really make good money you will need to come up with an original idea. There are already thousands of applications available, and therefore you won't want to create something that is already in use. You can go online and do some research at to see the type of apps that have been developed, and the type of things that people want. There are also many categories, for example, family, games, education, social networking, sports etc.

It will be no use creating an application that nobody will buy, therefore you will have to do some market research. Talk to everyone you know who owns an iPhone and find out more about the apps they like and what new things they would purchase. Perhaps spend some time at higher education schools and find out what the students would like.

Some knowledge of Objective-C and Cocoa, two coding languages, will be required, as these are the main languages used for making iPhone apps. Others may also be applicable. To use these languages you will need a PC that can run the Leopard version of MacOS X. Further money is advisable to spend on the Apple Software developer kit (SDK). This kit is available online, from Apple's website for programmers.

To find out many things you need to know about programming for the iPhone, open a developer account with Apple. When you sign in to your account you will find a great number of resources, including the iOS Reference Library, which is filled with ready-made codes. They can also be changed if necessary.

To make a successful iPhone application, you will need to be able to program in the various languages. These languages are taught at various colleges, but it is best if you have experience with programming in general before you start them. The courses offer different types of training, and last for a few weeks to a few months. Paying another developer to do the work is something else to consider.

You should get a good response if you advertise for mobile app developers NYC. Many people enjoy this type of work, and are good at it. Make sure the person or team you hire is equipped with the skills to complete the task, and has the time to work consistently. Get a distribution certificate so that you can sell your apps once they have been approved by the App Store.
