Publisher's Summary

Warning! This audiobook has no happy ending.
You've listened to all the audiobooks teaching you how to make money in your underwear at home in the iPhone or Android apps business. But you know what those audiobooks are missing? The truth. Reality. That's what I'm giving you in this short audiobook. The reality is you're more likely to be like me. A mobile app business failure. But it doesn't have to be that way. If you follow the simple lessons I learned the hard way you'll be far more likely to be a success than a failure. I can almost guarantee it because my plan calls for not spending any money before you've made money.


How can you be sure your app will make money before you've launched? (I lay that out in Lessons #3 and #4)
Why is a mentor important and how do you find one for yourself? (Lesson #7)
Should you spend money on outsourcing or learn to develop apps yourself? (Lesson #5)
How do you fund your app development while learning what makes apps successful? (Lesson #5)
Is there one thing successful app creators are doing that you are not? (Lesson #9)
What is planning to fail and planning to succeed? (Lessons #11 and #12)
Should you create an app unlike anything else in the app store? (Lesson #1 - the most important lesson in the whole audiobook. This one pays for itself.)

Learn all that and more from someone who has learned the hard way. You won't learn app store optimization and marketing (ASO), how to reskin apps, or how to outsource your apps here. These are the lessons nobody else wants you to learn.
This audiobook will take you 40 minutes to listen to and save you immeasurable amounts of time and money.

I was really hoping that the author would cover his specific lessons learned and mistakes that he made. Instead what the author does is drone on and on and on trying to discourage that listener or reader from entering the app business. While he just mentioned that he wrote for apps and that one of them was mildly successful he doesn't talk at all about what actually went right or what went wrong with his apps.

Worth 40 minutes

You should at least be willing to invest this amount of time if you're going into app development. It's a reality check you should be willing to endure.
