3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but not sure it will help you to be an Appillionaire!, 16 Feb 2012
This review is from: Appillionaires: Secrets from Developers Who Struck It Rich on the App Store (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Appilionaires is an easy enough read and quite interesting for those interested in developing Apps, have a dead good idea and want to find out how others hit the big time (perhaps to learn from their mistakes and read some short-cuts).

So what do you get for your money? It's spilt into 3 sections - each of a few chapters each.

The first section deals with Apps from their first inception, through bedroom developers to millionaire developers. This I found interesting as I'd not really read much on the history of app development before.

The second setion goes through 5 mega games (Doodle jump, Harbor Master, Pocket God, Stick Wars and Angry Birds- basically what the game is like, the story of its development, marketing problems/successes and finally its hitting the big time. For me this was the best part of the book - I was really interested in the trials and tribulations of a developer (having worked in I.T. as a software developer myself).

The last section gets back on track with teh first section - where the App market is at the moment and what might it's future developments be like.

An interesting book, had its highs and lows but failed to deliver on really inspiring me to write my own apps. Maybe I just haven't got what it takes?!
