"IAN LYNCH SMITH, a shaggy-haired ball of energy in his late 30s, beams as he ticks off some of the games that Freeverse, his little Brooklyn software company, has landed on the iPhone App Store's coveted (and ever-changing) list of best-selling downloads: Moto Chaser, Flick Fishing, Flick Bowling and Skee-ball."
Mr. Smith earned over $180,000.00 USD on his game Skee-Ball alone so he seems pretty happy with the opportunity that the App Store has given him. Can't say I blame him, there are all kinds of resources out there for anyone that wants to develop a program for the iPhone/iPod Touch and who knows, you could strike gold too. That seems to be the draw, for companies large and small, it kind of evens the playing field when it comes to app development. This is a 5 page (well 5 pages on the web) article, general overview of the iPhone and the App Store and what it all means to those involved. The author seems to say that this is the standard for mobile app development, Apple is leading the pack and it is their race to lose. What are your thoughts?
