5 Simple Steps for Building A Popular iPhone App

The success of crazy and seemingly useless apps like 'Hold On,' 'Zit Picker' and 'iSteam' show that iPhone users like humor and creativity. Your app doesn't need to be incredibly complex to attract iPhone users – apps that bring something new are always appreciated on the App Store. All you need to develop apps for iPhone is thinking of some unique concept. It doesn't matter how useful or useless your iPhone application development idea is. As long as it is innovative, entertaining or productive, people won't mind spending a few cents to buy your apps.

You do not need to know coding to build an app – an idea is all you need. Get the concept clear, and follow the below listed steps to build an amazing app for the iPhone. 

Find Something Special

You need to find a niche, an area in which you excel. It could be anything. Do you have an idea or concept that no one has ever used? Can you think of an endearingly unproductive game like 'Hold On'? Do you have a concept for some highly productive app that could add value to the life of the users? If you do, work on the concept and enhance it. Or you can simply check out what apps are selling on the store and build an app that caters to the current needs of the iPhone community. Just make sure that there aren't too many apps of the same kind in the market. 

Design Layouts

A lot depends on how good your app looks. By designing the layout of your app, you can set the tone for your app. The design will give your app its personality. And don't worry if you are not a designer and have no idea of how to go about designing the layout. You can use free sites like MockApp.com that will help you create beautiful layouts for apps. In case you don't want to do all this, you can simply hire an iPhone app designer to do this for you.

Get an iPhone Developer

If you know how to code and develop apps for iPhone, you won't need to hire a developer, but if you are not a programmer, you will need a dedicated iPhone apps developer for your project. This is the costliest part of your project. In US and UK, iPhone application development can cost you anywhere between $2000 to $10,000. The cost of development is high for complex apps, while simple apps cost a lot less. By outsourcing your project, you can cut down the development cost by 40-65%.

Set the Right Price

Once your app has been developed, you need to think of how you are going to price it. In case you've developed an amazing app that adds a lot of value to the life of the users, you can charge good money for it. However, if you have developed a simple, fun app, it is best to keep the price down. Also, remember that Apple will take about one-third of the money you generate from app sales. If you've invested $5000 in the iPhone application development project, you need to price your app in a way that allows you to recoup your investment.

Marketing Blitzkrieg

Just because an app is good doesn't mean that it will sell, and there are dozens of bad apps that have done well on the App Store. You need to create a buzz, you need to capture the imagination of the iPhone users if you want your app to sell well. There are more than half a million apps on the App Store; so, you need to stand on the rooftop and shout the name of your app. Create a simple website or blog to promote your app, and utilize social networking channels like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and StumbleUpon to popularize your app.
