It's a pretty tough business, anyhow, good luck.
Apple technically does pay you:
Customers buy your app -> Apple gets their money -> Apple pays you 70% of what they got
Anyway, you probably don't have to let your mom make a dev account; I'm not of legal age yet, but I have one registered under my name on my bank account (in Germany you can get a legit bank account when you're 12, not sure how it's like in the US/wherever you live).
You do know people will see her name on your apps…
True, either way you get 70% or whatever.
I hope you know something about coding because its not easy to become popular on the app store. Don't expect to release an app and become as popular as Angry Birds overnight.
I could make Angry Birds overnight -_- I'm a game developer though
Remember that it's vry tricky biz! Objective C is hard
I doubt you could make Angry Birds overnight, given the fact that a whole company of Finnish people took months to make it
I didn't mean all ui images and levels. I mean literally the physics, animations and stuff like that. I worded it wrong
Hey you guys, I'm also wanting to be a developer, I'm only 16, I understand how hard it is, I don't own a mac, I only have windows and I'm learning C++... I'm sure he understands it's hard, but don't discourage him like it's impossible. It may be VERY difficult, but in the long run, you get experience, and you have one good idea that hasn't been thought about before, and you incorporate that into an app, $$$$$. It's just gotta be neat and flashy looking. Also try Corona, costs to have a license, doesnt use Objective-C, has a built in OpenGL ES 2.0 engine, and you can automatically compile code to post to the App Store, The Play Store, the Nook store, and the amazon store, all depending on how many licenses you bought with the corona program.
Just believe in yourself and it will be accomplished.
You just bumped a thread from last year lol.
But you're right anyhow, also the younger you start, the better.
Even if you spend millions of dollars creating an App, you still have to get it past Apple's approval.
The App store isn't like the Anroid Market that everyone puts their crappy Apps on. There's no garantee unless it offers something at really good quality.
Angry Birds itself took a year or two to make and then to approve it costed a bit. So...if your a guy in a basement, I don't want to discourage you, but your chances are small. I don't doubt that you could make an App. I really do think you could, it's just that Apple isn't lackadaisical about just any App being put on their App Store.
