iPhone apps for profit?

Do you want to develop the next "big thing" in the iPhone world? That would be the next app... The apps you see in the apple iPhone commercials were made by someone, many people with no computer programming experience at all. So why not you! Why can't you make that BIG MONEY?


The past few years has witnessed a change in the ecosystem of the wireless world.
Time was that cell phone companies were responsible for selling games and applications to their customers.
These apps were programmer in the java language using J2RE. Not only were these apps hard to develop, they were also severly limited due to several different factors:

- compatability with multiple phones
- limited hardware
- small screen size

When apple launched the iPhone in 2007 and the AppStore a year later, the world of mobile development forever changed.


The AppStore is an integrated distribution system for developers to sell applications on the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It is pre-installed on all of these devices and is dead easy to use.

Since it's launch in 2008, in only a year and a half over TWO BILLION APPS have been downloaded from the AppStore and the numbers keep increasing day by day!

And it will only GET BIGGER with the iPad coming in the next few months!


Ultimately apple makes it relatively simple to become an app developer. You need to join the apple developer program and program your apps.

You need three things:

1. An idea
2. An annual subscription to Apples development program
3. A computer to program your app on (Windows or Mac will do)

After you write and code your app, submit it to Apple for approval and wait to get listed on the Appstore and the money to start to come in.


Fear not because I'm about to tell you the secret of how anyone can learn to write and sell an app on the AppStore.
It makes it NEARLY GUARANTEED that you will be able to

A. Make BIG $$$
B. Start on a real career as an app programmer.

Who knows, maybe you will be the next big thing! Most downloaded apps do make a profit.
Even selling an app for a dollar and making $0.50 profit after your comission still NETS YOU $5000.00!


If this sounds good to you, and you found this article useful, then you need to check out the secret so many app developers know but don't share...

I know it can be done and you don't need to be a computer genius either!

So your iPhone died and was restored and needs to be activated? Follow these simple steps to get back into business:

You may activate the phone at a AT&T store however the staff there does the same thing you can do at home which is connect the phone to iTunes and do it online.
Apple store employees also simply use iTunes to activate the phone.

How to activate iPhone:

1. Download the latest version of iTunes from http://www.apple.com/iTunes
install it

2. Connect your iPhone to the computer. After a few minutes any drivers needed are installed on your computer (windows version only not mac) and the phone is recognized

3. The iPhone will come up in the iTunes window and is automatically activated.

4. You are asked if you want to set the phone up as new or restore a backup

from here on just follow prompts.
If you do nit have an active Internet connection this does not work and you will need to bring the phone in to an stt or apple store.
Do not go to an att retailer but an actual corporate store. They deal with customer service type issues.

Although the iPhone 3gs natively takes spectacular video, you cannot simply take a frame grab but there is an easy solution that involves no jailbreaking or hacking.

Step 1:
select the video you want a frame from in your camera roll and turn your phone on its side to enter landscape mode (so it's wider than tall) the video automatically fills the entire iPhone screen.

Step 2:
use the scrub bat up top to skip to the frame you want to capture. Pause the video on this point

Step 3:
tap on the screen anywhere to make the video controls dissapear and all you can see just the video.

Step 4:
hold the sleep/wake button on top of the phone and then press the home button on the front of the iPhone and a screenshot is taken and saved to the camera roll.

You now had a still image of the frame on the movie you want!

I isn't the same an iPhone photo though the resolution is less and it's in PNG format but unless you get the photo on a computer and use a professional video editing program it's the closest you can get.

Also the iPhone video is only 640x480 resolution so it won't create anymore than a VGA resolution still from a video.

Has your iPhone died?
Want to restore but not upgrade?
Since you have an iPhone 3g or earlier you can restore your phone to an earlier version. This method will notnwork with a 3rd generation iPod Touch or iPhone 3gs as apple must digitally verify all iPhone restores. They as of this writing are not verifying any firmware but 3.1.3 on these two newest iDevices.

(Btw, for a great resource on jailbreaking I recommend checking THIS BOOK out, it's an awesome reference manual!

If your phone is in the "connect to iTunes" screen then it likely isnt actually in DFU mode.
DFU mode has to be entered by a user. More on that in a minute.

1. The first thing you need to do is download the appropriate firmware for your device.
You can get a list of firmware downloads from:

The file you want is:
3.1.2 (3G): iPhone1,2_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw
(or earlier)

Download that file. They are large so be patient. Also take note of where it is saved as you need it later on.

Now you are ready to put the phone into restore mode if it isn't already:

Step 1. Turn off your iPhone.

Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.

Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.

Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode.

At this point you will see a message in itunes telling you that an iPhone in recovery mode and that it needs to be restored.
Click ok to dismiss this dialog box.

Next on the iTunes screen hold SHIFT and click the restore button.
Instead of downloading the newest firmware it opens a file dialog box.

Navigate to the file you just downloaded and select it.
The rest of the process is automated and will take maybe between 15-20 minutes.
