We continue our discussion with Rob Rhyne, concentrating this week on building apps for professionals. Rob shares his thoughts on pricing models, maximizing revenue, and selling to fewer higher-quality customers. Along the way, we compare the iOS and Mac markets, look at paths to becoming part of the “App Store middle class,” and the importance of getting past launch day.
We’re planning a conference! Release Notes will be held October 21-23, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. If you would like to learn more about our conference on the business of iOS and Mac development, please visit our website at http://releasenotes.tv/conference.
Every month there are more great articles and content about the business of Mac and iOS development than we have time to discuss on the show. If you’d like to receive our monthly newsletter with the best of these links, as well as a summary of past episodes, and early access to conference tickets when they become available, be sure to sign up for our mailing list at http://releasenotes.tv/mailinglist.
