    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?
