Create iPhone App in 10 Steps

  1. 1. Create iPhone App in 10 Steps Created By Cygnis Media :
  2. 2. Step To Follow 1. Idea 2. Draw It Out 3. Business Plan 4. Conquering The iTUNES Store 5. Download XCode 6. Develop Your iPhone App With The Templates In The SDK 7. Start Coding 8. Test Your App 9. Submit Your App For Approval 10. Marketing
  3. 3. Idea • Make sure you have a viable idea. There are over 150,000 apps in the iTunes store. Is your idea different? Has it been done before? What need(s) are you filling? Will it help people • Do your research scour the iTunes store and make sure your app doesn’t already exist. Or, if a similar app exists, how is yours better or more attractive to users? Where would your app fit in to the app marketplace? or entertain them?
  4. 4. DRAW IT OUT • Start putting pen (or even better – pencil) to paper. What will your app look like? How many pages will it be? What functions will it have? Try to create the bones even if it’s very rough. Make several drafts as you perfect it along the way. After you complete this process, you may realize your idea is not a great one after all.
  5. 5. Business Plan • Now you are ready to put all of this in writing. By putting it down on paper you map out your business’s plan and how you will accomplish getting your app out there and actually turning a profit. Believe it or not, it’s not an easy thing to do.
  6. 6. Conquering The iTUNES Store • It’s not as hard as you think. You can enroll in the iPhone developer’s program on the Apple website. For $99 you will become a bona fide iPhone app developer. You can complete everything online from there. Just make sure you allow yourself extra time since you never know what will happen. iKidNY got rejected the first time for missing a silly alert. That little mistake cost me another three weeks (quite aggravating when you have a launch date set and press in the pipeline).
  7. 7. Download XCode • Xcode is an integrated development environment (IDE) containing a suite of software development tools developed by Apple for developing software for OS X and iOS. First released in 2003, the latest stable release is version 5.0 and is available via the Mac App Store free of charge for Mac OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion users. Registered developers can download preview releases and previous versions of the suite through the Apple Developer website.
  8. 8. Develop Your iPhone App With The Templates In The SDK • Once you have your app drawn out on paper or in Photoshop, you can start designing it with the templates provided in the SDK. This is where that HUGE amount of download time will be a huge benefit. You will have lots of templates to choose from, and there are a lot of great YouTube clip tutorials on how to use the templates effectively.
  9. 9. Start Coding • Start XCode, create a new iPhone project using the app name and then setup the project info. This step is necessary to tell XCode what architecture, SDK, device type and certificates to use. Select the the Project name in the Groups and Files list “first file” and press the blue Info button in the toolbar. There is a mass of overwhelming information here but for now only concern yourself with the red circled area.
  10. 10. Test Your App • Once you pay your fee, you will be able to have others in the app community test your app and help you work out final bugs. This is a great community, and testing new stuff is lots of fun. If you are a newbie like me, you will be in awe of the kings and queens of geeky stardom. Depending on the nature and complexity of your app, this process can take some time.
  11. 11. Submit Your App For Approval • After testing your app in the community and working out all the bumps, you can submit the app to iTunes for approval. You will be able to upload it right from the community. The process of approval can take some time, so be patient!
  12. 12. Marketing • Your app has launched. You are now in the iTunes store and you are officially an iPhone app developer. CONGRATS! Pat yourself on the back, because this is no easy feat. But now… the toughest job of all begins. People have to know about your app in order to download it.
