Upgrade your existing app to iOS 11 if you want it to survive! If you app is 32-bit, say, made in 2014 or 2015, chances are, Apple will stop showing them in the App Store. The existing customer will be able to use them but there will no new downloads — and without downloads, there will be no more fresh money from the app. The solution is to let me upgrade, develop and maintain your old app. If your old developer is not available any more, or not interested, give me the source code of your app and access as…

Somebody asked in the forum how much an app should cost that contains — ability to shoot an image and send it to the owner of the app — let the owner send push notifications to remind users to buy something from him. Here’s my answer: I’m an active developer for both Android and iOS so here is how I go about charging my customers.

Privacy policy is a must both for a web site and for an app. Go to any app or site that is similar to what you are doing, read a couple of their privacy policies and rewrite them for your own case.

Here is a question that appears quite often on forums: In order to produce iPhone apps do i have to have all Apple equipment? Do i have to have an iPhone? Do i have to have a Mac?
