This is book is a little bit old now, because App Store has changed since its publication, but it still have some important details and insights about how to deal with application design, development and marketing in the App Store.

It also contains some explanations about how you can produce applications even if you don't have any IT or technical background in computer science. I guess that is as well a valuable resource for any person interested to enter in the mobile application development.

I found the book very useful in discussing the business side of the iOS app development. For instance, various pricing considerations are discussed in depth. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to any iOs developers who need to learn the business side of the iOS app development.

HASH(0x9b3a0810) out of 5 stars Excellent book May 10 2012
By Cliente Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've just finished this book and as promised it gives me a great deal of information about the business involved on planning, development, marketing and support of an app on Apple's App Store. It's a well written piece that goes deep as possible on the matter.

Since the author is a developer, each chapter shares information, experiences and useful tips about almost all phases of app development.

In my opinion, there's only one fault in this book: a chapter discussing submission/approval procedures on App Store.

If you want to understand what you have to do to transform your idea into an app that can make this way on the iDevices everywhere, this is the first book you must read.

This is definitely a good book to have if you planning to enter or are in the business of making mobile applications. It will definitely help you think through how to develop your app and how to investigate specific categories to identify niche opportunities.
