[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - iPhone app developer Rod Cambridge has released his first book entitled "How NOT To Write an App" which is aimed at anyone looking to develop an app for the many smartphone and tablet platforms available.
Back in 2009, Rod shipped his first iPhone app called Top-Tens to see how easy (or difficult) it was to make some money as an app developer. It wasn't as easy as he thought, and so in this eBook Rod uses this experience to take the reader step by step through the things that should, and shouldn't, be done when creating an app for Apple's iPhone or it's rivals including Google's Android and Microsoft's Windows Mobile devices.
"I thought you could simply create an app, plonk it on the store, sit back with a glass of Pimms and wait for the money to come rolling in!" says Rod. In reality his experience was different, but also inspiring enough to write an eBook to help other developers make smart choices and avoid the pitfalls along the way.
"How NOT To Write an App" is currently being featured by Apple in the 'New & Notable' section of their iBookstore (for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch), and is also available at Amazon's (Kindle) bookstore, Barnes and Noble (Nook), Diesel eBook Store, Stanza, Smashwords, and more, for $4.99 (USD).
Rod Cambridge is a seasoned iEntrepreneur who, back in 2006, launched his groundbreaking Expodition website which provided location-based guides for users of Apple's original iPod. These text-based guides were viewed using the iPod's 'Notes' feature and provided the user with details of specific locations, tailored to that user's profile. More recently, Rod has turned his hand to developing iPhone apps, and currently has apps in the store and in development. Rod lives in Harrow, on the outskirts of London and has an interest in cars, computers and Yang style tai-chi. Copyright (C) 2011 Rod Cambridge. All Rights Reserved.
