I had earned 5k in 6mo from an app that coated no more than ten bananas to develop


My app costs $200 to develop, including Apple Developer Program membership. I'll break even in under a year according to you.

Job: Develop monster app for me.

Concept: I will tell you if you are approved once you send in your ideas.

Timeline: Two weeks.

Compensation: Name listed in the credits of the app.

Any takers?



Seriously, would any self-respecting coder/programmer answer any add to develop an app without any future compensation?

Why would someone sign a non-disclosure agreement without knowing any details?

If the app is not developed to completion, is the developer still paid for his work?

Also, if the app isn’t developed, does the app “creator” get to keep the code as intellectual property?
Why can't the “creator” and the developer(s) split all income 50/50?

I swear this whole "geographical arbitrage" thing is a 21st century Ponzi scheme for people in second and third world countries to fall victim to. The nerve of people paying guys a few hundred dollars to create an app that could generate millions!

I surmise, that if you pic an app at random, it will likely, be a bad one.

I've heard business people, who have succeeded in many businesses over many years say, "do your homework, and you will stand out, the vast majority of your competitors will not".

The problem is there has been so much good publicity, and a lot of this poor quality in the mainstream press, that has been telling people, "this is a gold rush, get out there, 15 year old kids are becoming millionaires overnight". And so the amature programmers flock. Or/and even the pro programmers - but most of them will have likely worked for others before, and have little idea of business.

This is not that I am saying there is not a hit or miss element to it. But more that I am saying that you can increases your chances by a lot compared to most of the apps out there, not only of earning a reasonable income, but also of hitting the big time. I'm not 100% certain of this, and will be trying it out. Unless someone can convince me my argument may be invalid for some reason.... go on fire away, I'm all ears. I'm perfectly prepared to take on board a valid reason why I may be wrong, it's in my interest. I've no heard one so far though...
