Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What was the first mobile app made?

A: The 1994 IBM Simon included several utilities, like Sketchpad and Calendar, which some consider among the first apps. In 1997, the Nokia 6110 came with the simple arcade game Snake. The first-generation iPod, released in 2001, had some early apps too. It came with the games Brick and Solitaire installed.

Q: What kind of apps make money?

A: A well-monetized app can generate sizable profits for developers. Some types of apps are more popular and profitable than others. These include:

  • Mobile games: Players can spend big on extra lives, cheats, and other bonuses.
  • Dating apps: Subscription fees and ads pull in cash.
  • Streaming apps: Users can pay a weekly or monthly charge to access dynamic video and music content.
  • Health apps: Fitness trackers and apps for meditation, workout plans, and calorie counters are very popular. Apps can charge a one-time fee or use a subscription model.
  • Social media apps: These can be monetized by showing users ads.

Q: How do you make an app look professional?

A: Developers use a method called wireframing to strategically place elements on each page of an app. Wireframing software lets developers experiment with color choice, menu styles, and button positioning, which contribute to how professional the app looks and feels. Every page should flow sensibly from one to the next. Font and text size are important too as the wrong style can give a poor impression and make the app seem amateurish.
