Rags To Riches - App Developer Makes The Hottest App For iPad
November 19, 2012 in Lifestyle
[prMac.com] Mississauga, Canada - Game Scorpion is pleased to announce the release of Intimate Fireplace 2.0.1, its free lifestyle app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Intimate Fireplace is an app for the iPad and iPhone which features over 10 fireplaces to choose from.
"Apps like this one have helped me go from looking for jobs to now living the life I've always dreamed of.", States Gupta, who also trains new App Developers, and earlier this year spoke about one of his apps in front of a large group at one of the events held by Blackberry maker Research In Motion.
Just recently Apple announced that it had sold over 100 million iPad units worldwide, and that number is expected to grow even larger this holiday season with the introduction of the new iPad Mini.
"I love what I do, and I guess that's what it took to realize this dream. I couldn't have got here without God because there were times I just nearly gave up." Explains Gupta as he describes what he had to go through to make it as an App Developer.
"I've seen too many people get into the app world trying to get rich overnight but it's an actual business that takes time, and you will end up having a lot of negativity from people who just don't understand," continues Gupta discussing some of the hardships he and many new app developers face on their road to success, "and when its not the negativity of your peers and loved ones, its the grueling competition that is constantly going on in the app world that makes it a challenge to make it in this business successfully! Having a strong positive mindset, perseverance and faith in a higher power are a true requirement for this business in my opinion."
Apple currently has over 700,000 apps in the App Store all competing for the spotlight and has had over 25 billion app downloads to date. This only makes the app market even more competitive as many new app developers are trying to cash in on the app gold rush.
Apps like Gupta's Intimate Fireplace, are expected to be a big hit this holiday season as many iPad and iPhone owners are looking for unique apps for Christmas. "We expect to see a lot of people getting iTunes Gift Cards and spending a lot on apps," explains Gupta, "and with the new iPad Mini we expect this year to be the highest year for app sales yet!"
