Description

How can you make your iPad or iPhone app stand out in the highly competitive App Store? While many books simply explore the technical aspects of iPad and iPhone app design and development, App Savvy also focuses on the business, product, and marketing elements critical to pursuing, completing, and selling your app. Whether you're a designer, developer, entrepreneur, or just someone with a unique idea, this book explains every step in the process, with guidelines for planning a solid concept, engaging customers early and often, developing your app, and launching it with a bang.

Great starting point for the overall app process. Don't let the publication date fool you, this is still pretty solid information to keep in mind when going through the development process. Let's be real here, policies, procedures, and terminology change all the time. The way I look at it, this book is the map. Twitter and other resources (including Ken's blog) are the traffic map to know where to go when you're navigating the development path. Full Review  >

There are countless titles on writing an iPhone or iPad app. As for the apps themselves it becomes increasingly difficult for book authors to distinguish himself from others, to make the textbook unique and a worthwhile read. App Savvy, having been published in 2010, manages to capture the readers attention quite easily - still today. Full Review  >

I have collected a number of books and articles related to App development for the iOS platform. I chose to look at and review this book because it was the first one I ran across that doesn't simply focus on app development. App Savvy looks to help you plan and execute your development efforts.

Interesting book that is written for the non-programmer and the programmer, who has the technical abilities but lacks the marketing skill to peddle his wares. There are some obvious stories as to the need to plan and the approach but there are a lot of other stuff that would assist the man of ideas. Full Review  >

The App Store has its own idiosyncrasies that can be confusing for a first-time developer trying to learn the creation and app submission process. Before you launch your first app to the App Store, be sure to read this book first! Full Review  >
