Probably more than half of the people who come up with app ideas have no idea how they are developed. And I’d say that is pretty normal. It seems pretty simple: I want my app to do this and I want to make money. If only it were that simple. Unfortunately, I’m about to bust some bubbles, but the sooner you find out the better!
Okay, so I’m going to reference this a few times, but it really is the easiest comparison on understanding why iOS app development isn’t as simple as everyone thinks. When you think of app development it’s like building a house, and you have to think about every little detail you want it to have. How many floors? How many rooms? Is there a pool? A fence for the backyard? High-end appliances? Granite countertops? And do you see where I’m going with this? There’s a lot to consider and there are different phases associated with each task.
