There is a lot of buzz about independent iphone developers who have made between $100,000 to $500,000 by simply creating their first iPhone application and putting it up for sale on the online Apple Store.

Steve Demeter made a simple puzzle game called Trism, and in 2 months he earned $250,000. Last December the app called iFart became the number one app on the App Store. It stayed on the top and raked in $9200 each day in profit after Apple’s cut. Then, Ethan Nicholas, developer of the now famous iShoot game, earns $21,000 per day selling his iPhone app. Ethan quit his day job to work full time on the iPhone and he did not even know how to write Objective-C code before he made iShoot.

These are just some of the stories that are causing a lot of buzz, and people have quit their day jobs to cash in on the opportunity.

The guys who create things like this know its a “fad” with a steep bell curve. They can easily revive it every 10 to 15 years to milk it further. Lets not take credit away from them for thinking outside the box. Who would’ve thought of iPhone Apps like iFart, iSteam, Ocarina, iBeer, Koi Pond, Moron test, iFight, etc ? These are simple Apps that the creators have made for bite sized entertainment and a quick (million) bucks. They recognize the opportunity (iphone platform + micro-transaction ability) and are selling stuff for 99cents and making a killing doing so.

The good news is that the party is NOT over. There is still plenty of room for innovation and you are still seeing individual and small studious making a killing creating and marketing what you term above as “stupid”.

There is a LOT of money to be made IF you do this the RIGHT way. Like in all businesses / ventures .. you need to get it right. That is the secret.

So, i’m going to share a few pointers. Firstly, its very important to have a free version of your app along with the paid version (keep it at 99 cents). You must follow this pricing pattern for fad type of products, but not if you are making a hgh utility product like a Astronomy Star Map.

You are not late to the party on the app store, but there are many people already there who know what is working. So, you need to play your cards right or you will get frustrated and have to walk out of the game. Spend a lot of time seeing the apps on the store. There are a LOT of them. DONT copy or make twists of what exists. Come up with a truly UNIQUE name. Ofcourse you need to have a UNIQUE game concept / gameplay too (if you are making a game). If you are making an App – there’s so much you can do.

About buying a Mac for development … no you do NOT need to buy one. If you sign up at EDUmobile.ORG classes – you get remote access to Mac time. Also, there’s an easy way to create the emulator on a dual core. Just look around . I wont tell 🙂

If you want to eventually self-publish your iPhone app via the Appstore – then you need the official SDK and acceptance by the folks at Mac and it costs $100. You will need to buy a real Mac to sign your app and publish it when you are ready. Alternatively, go for a co-publishing deal with the guys at EDUmobile.ORG and you get to keep 80% of the revenues coming in 🙂 not bad. No hassle.

Finally, again i must repeat – there is $$$ to be made – but you need to go about it in a clever manner and the folks at EDUmobile will give you plenty of tips once you graduate, and also access to a private forum to discuss things that are working with other developers like yourself. Ofcourse, if you want to start earning immediately – you can bid to win the large number of mushrooming iPhone project listings on sites like Elance, oDesk and RentACoder. When I checked recently there were over 25 iPhone projects being posted per day on Elance and oDesk, individually!
