Great story.

In my humble opinion these days app development is not that profitable and it's a field with a very low barrier of entry. You don't even need to know how to code to create an app.

As you experienced, the vast majority of companies have multiple failures, and if lucky, live on the success of a single title. For every success story there are thousands of developers who are not even earning a livable wage from their apps and some bigger companies focus on churning out as many cheap apps as possible to see which one sticks.

Thanks for sharing.

Hey guys,

Newbie here so treat me well ;)

Stumbled across this forum whilst google searching and would love some advice or anything that can help me in my pursuit for financial freedom.

I had a lightbulb idea for a Mobile App about 3 months ago and just went for the plunge and acted upon it. Did my research and communicated with a few companies who were interested in my idea, but eventually found an American App developer company ( I’m from UK ) that was interested in my App concept and they agreed to take it on.

We are currently in the Prototype stage at the moment, sorting out marketing strategies and revenue module. All getting pitch prepared for an Angel investor to fund the appropriate money to advance to the next stage and build the App completely so it will be ready to go live on the App Store.

Still a long way off this stage at the moment, but with everything, I’m obviously planning my strategies and doing as much research as I can. Reading up on mobile App books and business books.

I will be looking at building this into my own business. That’s certainly my goal and visual dream for the future. At 33 years of age, I am sick and tired of working long night shifts etc, working for a horrible boss. Life’s not terrible by all means, but I got a plan where I want financial freedom and I’m going for it.

Just wondering are there any similar sort of entrepreneurs on here that have opened up a business for Mobile apps or even websites ?

Any advice on how you started ?

Much appreciated guys
