With the increasing penetration on mobile web, you may want to create an iphone app, an android app for your blog which helps you reach more readers and target audience. As we all know creating an app is really difficult for iphone or android unless you have some programming knowledge and getting it approved on the app stores is another difficult story and in case you want to hire some one to develop an app for your blog, it involves the following slow steps.
- Signup for Apple’s Developer Program (requires up to 1 month approval time and need to pay ninety nine dollars a year)
- Hire a Graphic Designer
- Hire an iOS Programmer
- Develop the app
- Wait for up to 2 weeks for Apple to review your app
