Create Apps and Earn Income at Home
Very few things are certain in our lifetime, but you can probably bet the farm on the fact that very few people are willing to give up their smartphone anytime soon. More and more apps are being created every day. If you want to work from home and are interested in computers and mobile devices it may be a great idea to learn how to create apps for some of the Smartphones.
What You Need
The first thing you are going to need is a computer; in fact a computer with an active internet connection is the only thing you are ever going to need to create apps for smartphones. Even though there are many different mobile devices, there are ultimately three different types of mobile devices that would make it profitable to learn to program for. These would be the iPhone, the Android, and the Blackberry.

Once you decide which smartphone you would like to target, you need to learn more about the coding for the particular device. Now this is not something for ‘everyone’ there may be some people that either have no interest in learning about programming. If you have never even tried building a website for example, it may be difficult to get into.
Most of the major companies (Apple, Android) have their own version of the development kit that people can either get for free or have to pay a little for. Once people have the tools they can easily start to create apps for that particular device. At that point, the only thing that needs to be done is get the ok from the parent company (Apple, Android etc.) and the app will be available for sale in the marketplace.
What To Create
Do you remember the famous Apple iPhone slogan “there is an app for that?” well what if there was not? If you create apps or a game to sell it does not necessarily have to be the next Angry Birds and sell millions and millions of copies (though it would be nice). As long as you create apps people are going to have an interest in buying, you’re heading in the right direction. Gaining entry into the app world is relatively easy; but to create apps that are a success is extremely difficult. Make sure that you release a quality product that is both useful and easy to use!
Make it Fun
The truth is that you have to enjoy working on these types of things to consider this a successful work at home business. If you create apps that are not fun and unique you stand a good chance at success. Even so, there is no guarantee that you are going to make money with it (it has to do with supply and demand). If you’re creative and have a few good ideas designing apps from home could be ideal for you. Think of what you would like as an app; create apps that others say they would like to have. Do survey and find out what the people want.
