Publisher's Summary

The ultimate guide to building an app-based business - now revised and updated
Apps have changed the way we communicate, shop, play, interact and travel, and their phenomenal popularity has presented possibly the biggest business opportunity in history.
In How to Build a Billion Dollar App, serial tech entrepreneur George Berkowski gives you exclusive access to the secrets behind the success of the select group of apps that have achieved billion-dollar success.
Berkowski draws exclusively on the inside stories of the billion-dollar app club members, including Instagram, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Candy Crush and Uber, to provide all the information you need to create your own spectacularly successful mobile business. He guides you through each step, from an idea scribbled on the back of an envelope through to finding a cofounder, building a team and attracting (and keeping) millions of users, all the way through to juggling the pressures of being CEO of a billion-dollar company (and still staying ahead of the competition).
If you've ever dreamed of quitting your nine-to-five job to launch your own company, or if you're a gifted developer, a seasoned entrepreneur or just intrigued by mobile technology, How to Build a Billion Dollar App will show you what it really takes to create your own billion-dollar mobile business.

much better than I thought it would be

The name kind of threw me off at first. I figured it would be some gimmicky book full of selling you their services, but it wasn't. it's literally a how to book on how to get into the billion dollar app club.
some things might be a bit dated by now, but not too much, and that doesn't mean the info isn't still valuable. business is still business.

Touches on everything

The book shares some great tips and insights into how to think and prepare your app for greatness. I really enjoyed this and gained a lot from it as someone who is on this journey themselves. it was narrated clearly and even at 1.4x I could follow it easily.
