LESSON 01 - CREATING APP:
to start creating ur App, you must have come up with an idea of what u're going to create.
There are four steps to rolling out your application, they are; a. pick template, b. edit & configure, c. install on device, d. publish.
There are over 200 different free templates to choose 4rm. The templates actually makes the wrk easier, mostly for beginners. any template can actually be edited to produce something else.
But for the purpose of this lesson, let's create an App for a celebrity "OLAMIDE".
from your acct. dasboard, at the top of d page, click on "TEMPLATES" this will take u to the plates page where U'll browes tru to sellect the template that fits ur desire. Since I us to create an App for Olamide, i'll sellect the template "CELLEBRITY NEWS" click on "use this template" and then sellect which platform u're producing for(android, iPhone, iPad, kindle, & window). type in the name u want d app to bear, eg. "OLAMIDE APP" and click create.(hooolllllllaaaaah!!!!, your app is now up)
done.
Re: How To Earn A Decent Living, Designing Mobile Applications(free Tutorial) by EFOLK5(m): 1:25am On Aug 12
LESSON - 2: EDITING & CONFIGURING
After our app "OLAMIDE APP" has been created, the next step is to edit and configure the app to look and function d way we want.
On the App dashboard, d following menu item will be displayed in tabuler form, they are;
i. edit pages, ii. Page settings, iii. design properties, iv. navigetion settings, v. store properties, vi. app settings, vii. multimedia, viii. push notification, ix. analytics.
With this menu options, u can actually adjust ur App to look and function any how you want. Let's sellect "EDIT PAGES" here u'll be taken to a page showing all the pages that comes with the template by default. we can either add more pages(pages we know we want to include in the app that doesn't follow the template by default.) using the positive sign(+) on the page, or delete any page we don't have any need for, by using the negetive sign(-) on page. Here also we can convert any page type to a different page type. to do this, click "convert page" and u'll be taken to where you can choose any page type to fit into ur desire. consider having the following pages wen creating this kind of App;
* 2 or 3 blank HTML pages - among which u'll use one to create a welcome msg/design for the app, which will be flashed for few seconds once the app is lunched, one to type info about the app. and the other for any other additional info u may wish to write.
* a youtube page - here u'll point the page to all Olamide related videos on youtube, this page wen set will authomatically browes and que Olamide's vidoes for users.
* a facebook page - this should also b pointed at Olamide's official facebook fan page by typing in the link to his official facebook fan page in the space provided.
* Image page - to create an in-app photo album of the celeb.(dowload a huge collection of his pix n put them here.
* RSS page type - u'll use this page to generate rss feed to collect and update any latest news about d celeb.
* a form page - for feed back from users.
* App rating page - for users to rate your app
* share app page - with this page, users can share d app with friends n families.
* u may also consider adding an audio streaming page, to be streaming his audio files.
* a mesager page will also add value, here users can chat n interact within themselves
* a puzzle game page, u may choose to creat a puzzle game with any of his selected images.
NOTE: always remember to save every/any changes made, by clicking on "save changes" b4 moving to the nxt thing.

EFOLK5:
Let's share briefly how money is being made in this App business:
You may wonder what u stand to gain by rolling out a chat application that ppl will download and use for free. the deal here is that the ad campaign you run on the app will amaze you depending on the number of downloads, as well as how often the App is being used by subscribers. on the platform, u'll see list of integrated Ad companies. all it takes is to creat a free acct with any of them. start a campaign on the App name. create campaign for both banner, and instastatial ads.
u may have been noticing some Ads wen navigating pages of some Apps. some page will onpen after a few senconds of a full screen Ad, this type of Ad is called the interstatial Ads, and it converts higher than the banner ad that runs either on top, or at the bottom of the pages, sometimes both top and bottom at the same time. that is where ur money is. most Ad network pays between $5.05 to $10 for every one thousand(1000) impressions. Impressions here talks abt the number of Ads that have been shown to ppl through your App. clicks on any of the Ads will be an additional earning. Now lets do the maths at a bigginers stage. Assuming you designed a 5 pages App that commands say 20,000 downloads across all the market places(eg. play store, IOS, kindle, windows etc.). with an average daily usage of just about 500. this will most likely convert as follows; 500 x 5(no. of pages), and this will generate 2,500 impressions in a day, which will make u about $20 reacher that day alone without lifting a finger. You can now do the calculation yourself if you publish an App the enjoys hundreds of thousands, or even millions of download, with thousands of daily traffic. You can now see that having ten Apps that converts one thousand impressions each, will be paying you $100 every day with ease, even from the comfort of you home.

Thumbs up oga

Y'ello my fellow Nairalanders....

Its my pleasure to join EFOLK5 to train you all that are interested in learning Mobile Apps Dev, I'm a mobile Apps dev & designer inclusive of building webites etc.... Mobile apps can be built using different methods, coding methods (HTML5, java, MTD App Inventor etc) and as well the non-coding method which is the ready made platform by some mobile apps development sites. Although i use both the coding and non-coding methods to build app...There are various stage in building an app

* Planning stage
* Choosing your required app template specifically for the purpose of the app
* Designing the app splash screen and logo
* Adding contents into the app
* Monetizing the App by integrating (Google Admob) or other Alternative ads to earn you money
* Testing your app using Emulators (Android emulator, Blackberry emulator etc)
* Publishing your app to playstore for Android users and App store for iPhone users then you can as publish the window version on windows app stores like softonic.com etc.........


Anyone can check one of my student's android chatting app called Bowen campus connect developed by Agbi Damilola and as well my android game called crocodile vs zack.......

I will be here again to share my knowledge on this thread on how to build you apps, design your app, customize it, promoting your app on social media sites to get Massive downloads which in turn fetches you more money if the app is monetized using "Google AdMob"

If you all would embrace this idea i will suggest i create a video series and upload it to YouTube and integrate it on a blog to show walk you through on how to build this Apps..... As we all know, video tutorials goes along way. its a suggestion though, let me know if you all will like that..

I welcome you all that has shown interest in mobile apps development as a career and as another source of income.... One LOVE, I sign out

My brother, I appreciate ur interest for the ppl, but pls i'll want u to take note of d following;
* it takes nothing(no charges) to open a thread on NL
* I already have a structured teaching module for my followers on this thread, n wouldn't appreaciate u complicating issues for them as most of them are beginers in this area.
* this thread was created xclusively for selfless service(not.that i dnt av live Apps on several app platforms across d net, but chose not to mention any), i see it to be fraudulent by u trying to drive free traffic to ur apps by trying to promote them here.
* you offer to create a video tutorial n upload on youtube for them to watch abi? anoda smart move to promote ur channel, n generate revenue.
* for d porpose of this class, we're working exclusively with appsmoment, n it's only appsmoment accademy tutorials which are available free on d same youtube that can really help them here, not urs plz.
Sequel to d above, i'll appeal to u just to allow us concentrate on wot we have here for now. I'm sure those who may desire more will check u out in ur thread.
Thanks for ur understanding.
