Intro: Tips to Create Your Own iPhone Games and Apps If you are enamored by the number of applications and games that are available on your Apple Smartphone and have a unique idea for developing a new app of your own, it’s time you take the plunge into iOS development. Thanks to the growing popularity of application development for mobiles, creating apps and games for iPhone is not as tough as it sounds, it’s rather easy. Follow the simple steps give below and start creating your own iPhone games and apps:

Step 1: Get your hands on the programming language To create your own iPhone apps , you need to be acquainted with the basic know-how of computer programming. The language that is currently being used for application development for iOS is Objective C. It should not be difficult to learn if you are already familiar with C. A week or two in a computer class should be enough to be able to write code on the iOS and create iPhone games.

Step 2: Get a Software Development Kit (SDK) The SDK makes writing programs on XCode, the iOS IDE, easier and quicker. It makes up everything that you’d need while writing the program to create your own iPhone apps or to create iPhone games, which includes the IDE, testing tools, performance analyzers, and interface builders. It also contains a set of custom classes that you can use in the code while creating your own iPhone apps. In the case you are not comfortable starting out with the project development, the SDK has a bunch of sample projects that you can use as a model to develop your own project. You can add new features to it as you begin to fit in into the development environment.

Step 3: Register with Apple as an official Application Developer and sell your apps To be able to put your app up in the Apple market, you need to be registered as an official developer with Apple. This would give you the license to create iPhone games and apps and sell them on the Apple app store.

Step 4: Submit the game or app to Apple for approval Once you’re done with all the development work to create your own iPhone apps or to create iPhone games, you are required to submit the entire package, including the thumbnails of the game to Apple for approval. Well, now this is certainly the max-anxiety phase of the process! The company generally takes around a week to review an application which is complete and correct in all respects. Apps with minor faults here and there take longer in the scrutiny. If at all your app gets rejected, don’t lose heart, just correct the flaws and re-send it to Apple.

Step 5: Sell well Good marketing is essential for your app or game to be able to make it to the top list of iPhone downloads. Try whatever way you can to tell people about your new creation. Blogging about your app while it’s still under development is a good idea. Social networking sites too give you a good platform to reach out to people. Adopt a marketing strategy that suits your app and choose a medium to cater to the audience that it is intended for. A press release about your game would serve you well in terms of the publicity that your game needs. Just do all you can to get people talking, after all, out of 20000 apps and 2000 games, you need to give your item a loud voice so as to make it heard!
