How Not To Write An App
Rodney D. Cambridge
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Rod Cambridge created an iPhone app called Top-Tens to see how easy (or difficult) it was to make some money as an app developer. In this eBook, Rod uses this experience to take the reader step by step through the things that should, and shouldn't, be done when creating an app for Apple's iPhone or it's rivals including Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows Mobile devices.
A brief, helpful overview on app development
I did enjoy this book, and the advice on marketing was especially helpful. I had hoped that it would present cases of app failure and how to learn from them (ie, how not to do it), but that's my only complaint. Overall, the book was a light-hearted overview of the development process and gave me some things to think about as I develop my first app - certainly worth $5!
