About the $99 (£59) payment, is it one-time-only or annual?
I believe it's annual. Yeah I know it sucks I was gonna get it but that's just BS.
Seriously $99 a year is nothing, they give you hosting and an amazing way to distribute you apps. I mean if you make quality applications, that people want to buy you could make that back in up to a week.
*quick bit of math*
A single app priced at $0.99 (£0.59) would take just 100 downloads to make it up, and seeing as the app store is now in 80(I think) countries... Point proven.
On a side note, is Objective-C hard to learn? My only programming experience is a near-professional understanding of Microsoft's C# language, which is also C-based.
Considering that C# is a ripoff from Java; not hard at all.
It will be much easier for you to learn Objective-C seeing as you already know a C based language. Also thanks for backing me up, I was too lazy to do the maths but knew it could be done.
Actually this is incorrect. Apple takes 30% of every sale.
0.99 / 100 = 0.009
0.009 x 30 = 0.297 rounded up = 0.30
0.99 - 0.30 = $0.69 profit per sale.
Think about it...MobileMe is $99 a year.
A WoW account is $180 a year.
A cellular plan can be $200+ a year.
This isn't much at all. That's less than $10 a month.
okay, 143 downloads then.
Separate names with a comma.
