The Growth of iPhone Development

iPhoneThe iPhone has changed the landscape of application development. With over 100,000 apps available on the iPhone generating over $1 billion in revenue , it should come as no surprise that Apple’s App Store is big business (source: Apple). According to Gregg Weiss, founder of iPhoneAppsQuotes, “With the iPhone app market growing daily, developers have noticed the trend and are shifting focus to the mobile app market.” According to a recent iPhoneAppsQuote.com survey, most developers experienced a 39% average growth in business from adding mobile application development to their portfolio. Respondents, who recently added app development as a service, said 34% of their entire business is now iPhone development (source: Atlanta Business).

Important to an iPhone developer is his toolbox of development resources. Noted below are some links to sites that can aid in the development process:
