Ich bin ein developer.

Today I joined the Developer Program of Apple. One day I will create a real commercial app.

E-mail of Apple:

Dear jan willem van capelleveen,

At this moment I am focussed on the Human Interface Guidelines of iOS.

As an app designer, you have the opportunity to deliver an extraordinary product that rises to the top of the App Store charts. To do so, you’ll need to meet high expectations for quality and functionality.

Apple will review your app before making it public.

We review every app submitted based on a set of technical, content, and design criteria. As you plan and develop your app, make sure to use these guidelines and resources.

Wikipedia about The App Store:

App Store is a digital distribution platform, developed and maintained by Apple Inc., for mobile apps on its iOS operating system. The store allows users to browse and download apps developed with Apple’s iOS software development kit. Apps can be downloaded on the iPhone smartphone, the iPod Touch handheld computer, the iPad tablet computer, and to the Apple Watch smartwatch and 4th-generation or newer Apple TV as extensions of iPhone apps.

App Store was opened on July 10, 2008, with an initial 500 applications available. As of January 2017, the store features over 2.2 million apps.

Apps are big business. Wikipedia:

On January 4, 2018, Apple announced that the App Store had a record-breaking holiday season according to a new press release. During the week starting on Christmas Eve, a record number of customers made App Store purchases, spending more than $890 million in that seven-day period. On New Year’s Day 2018 alone, customers made $300 million in purchases.

What will be the sales figures of my App? Okay first I should develop an idea… my feet are back on the ground.
