[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - When app developer Rod Cambridge decided to write and publish a book about his experiences while developing and bringing his iPhone app to market, he was unsure how well the book would be received. He needn't have worried!
The book, entitled "How NOT To Write an App" is available on Amazon, Apple's iBookstore, Barnes & Noble and others, and takes the reader step by step through the things that should, and shouldn't, be done when creating an app for Apple's iPhone, Google's Android, and other popular smartphone platforms.
Shortly after going on sale in late May, the book was featured in the New and Noteworthy section of Apple's iBookstore resulting in buoyant sales, and has also put in a strong performance at Amazon and other online stores, easily surpassing the first month sales goals that Rod had set himself.
"How NOT To Write an App has got off to such a fantastic start! I'm really pleased!" said Rod. "I've actually put my next app on the backburner and am now fully concentrating on my follow-up book! The intention is to eventually have a series of "How NOT To..." books on the market, and I'm hoping to have the next one complete and on sale by November".
Rod's next book draws on his near 20 years of experience in the IT security industry and has a working title of "How NOT To Use Your Smartphone". The eBook will cover the security measures that should be, but are all-to-often not, taken to secure your mobile devices from nefarious hacktivity. To keep up to date with the development of the "How NOT To..." series of books, visit the Facebook page which has just been set up.
