Using An Apple Account
One of the best ways that you can make money from your I-Phone application is to open up an Apple account for distribution of the I-Phone downloads. You can then create your own application and put it on the account where it can be downloaded by people for free. This is the best way to get your application out there to others. You can have your own business account at the Apple site or you can have an individual account where you do not charge for the applications.
The cost for the business account is $299 and the individual account is $99. This may be a good option for those who have an extraordinary application that they want to share as this is where a great many people go to download applications for their I-Phones. You can make a lot of money if you have an enterprise account on this site as they have thousands of applications, feature new applications and also feature the most popular.
Recently, the New Yorker magazine featured a drawing that was created on an I-Phone application for artists on their cover. The application was downloaded for around $6 from the Apple website. The creator of the application was not named, but is bound to be getting quite a few orders from this unexpected boast of publicity for their application.
One of the best aspects of using an Apple account is that you can get all of the tools that you need to create an application, debug it and also distribute it on the site. You do not have to worry about using any special tools and the steps you need to take through Apple to create the widget are very simple and easy to follow. You do not have to be a genius when it comes to computer technology to follow the creating process provided by Apple.
Before you can submit the application to Apple, however, you have to be sure that you own the copyright to all of your software. You should have it copyrighted as well, with the name of your company or your name as the copyright holder. In order to do this, you need to be sure that you are not infringing on the copyright of someone else.
If you want to make up an application on the TV series “Full House,” for example, you would not be able to copyright such an application because you do not have the rights to make a profit from this TV show. While you can create such an application and distribute it elsewhere, you cannot distribute it on the Apple site. Only software that is free and clear from copyright infringement can be distributed on the site.
You might wonder why someone would choose to use the Apple site to distribute their software rather than their own site. After all, it can be costly to open an Apple account whereas it is not expensive at all to start your own website. And there are a lot of rules to follow as well, such as those relating to copyright infringement. You may feel that it would be better to sell the applications on your own.
The reason that most people decide to use the website is because they know that they will get the most chance of someone seeing their application on the site. There are over 35,000 applications on Apple for those with I-Phones to download. Many of the downloads are free while some of them cost a few dollars. Most of the applications, such as the art application that enabled an artist to create a cover for the New Yorker magazine, are only a few dollars. When you use the Apple site to sell I-Phone G3 applications, you can get the most exposure for your product.,
Some people are just looking for exposure so that they can make money in another way. Instead of selling the application, they are just putting their message on the application and using it to promote themselves. This can be another way to make money. If you have a product that you want to promote, you can connect it to a widget and then use it for distribution. This is ideal if you have a rock band, artwork or want to promote yourself in some way. This system can work for politicians as well as celebrities and is already being used in such a way.
Using the Apple account is a good idea for a first timer who just wants to learn how to create I-Phone applications and use them in such a way that they can make money. When you sign up for an Apple account, you will see that you do not have to be very good with computers as the tools that you need to promote your applications are right there.
You can upload and distribute your I-Phone applications for free, or you can choose to get an account and pay for the service. Apple does take a percentage of your profits when you sell on their site, but it is their interactive site that comes up first in the search engines for Applie I-Phone is the easiest way for customers to find your applications and for you to reap the profit from selling them in this manner.
