The author has managed to take a technical subject and make it approachable. This book is for anyone thinking about or considering an app for any reason.

You will gain both insight and understanding of the process. This prepares you to think more critically about your design, your needs and your potenital customer. This book includes examples and approaches others have used. Development of apps is a complex process and this book gives you a head start on the process. I will keep this book and use for future reference.
From Amazon Reviewer D. Waisner “Debby author, reader”
As a life-long software engineer that has transitioned to mobile app development, my focus has typically been on design and implementation of any given project. While I have to work with the graphics designers and often the customers who have contracted my services, my view into those parts of the process has always been limited. This book gives me very good high-level insight into the challenges that many people have to go through before they ever talk to me about building their software. While I try to be aware of such things, Building a Mobile App was a fantastic reminder of the journey all of the other folks on any team striving to build an app go through.
While this is geared towards those folks that are considering an app for their needs, *anyone* involved in the process can learn from reading this book. Regardless if you’re brand new to the world of app development, or a seasoned veteran, you will be reminding of things you have forgotten about the process and most likely learn a few new things along the way.
If you do app development, get this book, it’s that simple.

The first thing I really liked was the free mobile app blueprint that comes with this ebook. I think that will take people from just reading about creating apps to actually doing it.
Also, hiring people to build your app can be one of the biggest challenges. You have to know how to give them instructions, communicate, and keep them motivated. This is dealt with early on in the book.
I appreciate the fact that you’re given a minimum amount you can expect to pay to get an app built and what you can expect for that amount as well.
Overall, I’d say well worth the cost to download. Get it.
From Amazon Reviewer D. Andersen
The author uses humor, clarity, brevity and simple bullet points to render this topic user friendly. Most of us are not going to build a mobile app today, but if you wanted to explore the topic this book is a must. You will know enough to get you into the game and have an informed conversation. The examples are a valuable learning experience to pull everything together.
