Moving Right Along with Mobile Apps

It has been over 2 years now since I started my career as mobile application developer in the iPhone iOS space. Today, I have 14 applications deployed on the App Store for iPhone and iPod mobile devices. Interestingly enough, I have just started the design of my first application for the iPad.

In future blogs, I will be providing full details of my approach in constructing a few of these applications.

Later, as I become more learned, I will be attempting more complex development and hope to share those experiences with you as well.

Preparing Mobile Apps for the iPhone

As a budding Apple iPhone applications developer, I have found the documentation provided by Apple to be very useful, yet somewhat complicated to follow. While I managed to wade through the information to get my apps built and submitted to the App Store, it was quite a learning experience. And, if I took a long break between apps, I have to re-learn the entire process for the subsequent application.

As a result, I have decided to publish step-by-step actions to some of the instructions I followed and simplified, to assist budding developers like myself in quickly grasping the process to build and submit their apps to the App Store.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be publishing these simple step-by-step guidelines.

Visit us today at biznizcamp.com for a lot more information about educational-entertainment fun games and activities.
