Is my application beneficial for others? If the answer to the questions you asked to yourself comes out to be yes then start up with designing your application.
- Complete market research is required. After you get the idea search for more applications that are similar to your idea. Download and analyse the similar applications and note down the points that you find are not good so that you do not repeat them into your application. Download the first top 10 applications, use them and find out why these apps are so popular. This will help you in designing a successful iPhone application.

It would be very difficult for you to design an iPhone application if you are not familiar with the phone and the operating system. You will find a number of online books or online forums that will help you to learn about iOS and Apple. You can also download iPhone SDK and XCode from Apple Developer Website to know their working even better.
- Draw your idea on a notebook and try to provide a rough face to your application. Draw out what exactly your expectations are and also sketch out a thumbnail for your application.
- You can also use iPhone GUI Photoshop templates for designing the layout of your application. You can also hire a reliable designer who can perform this part for you.
- Open the XCode window and write code for using your application with the help of objective-C. If you don’t know these programming languages you can hire someone to do it for you.
- When you are done with the application and its analysis, submit your application to the App store after it is done.
- Now promote your new application via social media marketing techniques, off-line social circles, blogs etc. Discuss about your application before it gets released and generate a buzz about it in the market. This will create a curiosity among the common people and they would wait for your application eagerly.
