    I've been away from my school (BHW) for a looong time. Now i'm back to give back a little as all the shit in IM i've learned was from here. I'm a bit busy in a new business model, I made in IM arround 10k last year mainly from Amazon and Clickbank, and the money keep flowing smoothly but actualy, i'm doing a 180° switch to the App developpement. I have friends making 10K+ a month with app business and the numbers are growing fucking fast!!!! So they shared with me their method. Actualy i have few apps on the app store that are making me a decent money and numbers are growning, i'm aiming 3000 usd by september and i'm pretty close to it :).

    The process is simple as:

    you get yourself an app developper account ($25 for Playstore,$99 annual for Apple store)
    You check the app store to see the succesful apps (Free/paid)
    you check the ones that stays a long time on the app store
    You buy a source code (range of 10 to 400 usd) with multiple use license
    you make clones (arround 100USD each) (Elence/Odesk guys works good)
    You push to the appstore and pray that it don't get rejected, then you start watching the money flowing specialy if it's a good app.
    You rinse and repeat.

    The aim in here is not making 1 app or 2, you must make it like an industry you push as much as you can. People making arround 10K have at least 40 apps on the app store. So you have to make it as process.

    Here it seems simple but each part of the process have it's tricks (How to find apps that are easy to remake and that have few assets to change, App store optimisation, Kick ass Icons to make, the role of screenshoots, also publishing the app is such a pain in the ass...)
    But the whole process is as simple as launching an amazon or clickbank website.

    Anyway go and make your searches guys cause now it's time for APPS don't miss this wave!!!

    PS: I know that my english sucks.

    I don't understand.. Are you just copying/renaming apps or making completely original/new apps?

    If you make an app from scratch it will cost you tons of money. So you're just buying code and making simmilar app with different graphics/name, and if you can afford it you can also make some changes in the game programming and gameplay (if it's a game)

    What do you mean it will cost a ton of money? Are you assuming that most don't know how to write apps and are buying help on coding/recoding it?

    Thanks

    I think its not so much the fact that people do not know how to code the app (even though I am sure there are more people that dont know how to code an app than people that do know how to code one), but more of an issue of time vs reward. Its very unlikely that you will produce an A list app, so this method relies on choosing proven games and rebranding them for different niches I assume that way your not having to come up with a super original idea you know the main core idea is already tested and all you need to do is change the graphics (as you have bought the source code already). That way you will be able to push out 40 apps much faster than coding every game from scratch.

    Cheers

    Seems a little suspect to me. With the app stores being so competitive, how are these copycat apps getting users and downloads, especially when there are review systems in place?
