“I bought this book for a social media infrastructure project I am pursuing, and it turns out to have been a particularly good investment. It’s all grain, no chaff. It helped me educate myself on the basic issues involved in app-building, which forms part of my project.”
“Just finished your book, “How to build a mobile app” and wanted to say thank you. I am in the process of setting up a business here in the UK. I intend to find a developer to produce a template or templates for mobile apps which I will then use to provide small to medium sized business`s with their own app. I have no prior experience in this field and your clear and simple (it had to be for me) to read book has given me the confidence to talk to prospective developers with at least a chance of understanding them.”
—M. Delahaye, Six Fields UK
I bought and read your book. Great work! You presented a lot of valuable information in an easy/succinct way – nice. It was cool to read the Boart Longyear case studies/quotes. Great job.

There is no development information in this book, but it has some useful statistics about mobile application in today’s market.
From Amazon Reviewer Babu Vinayagam
[Editors Note: Yep, there is no development information—this book is for CLIENTS and CORPORATIONS :)]
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. The author provides insight into the types of questions one should be asking in thinking about building an app. She introduces you to the difference markets, devices, who uses them, as well as there advantages and disadvantages.
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.
