Owning a side business that generates stable profit could be enable you to achieve financial freedom to free up some of your time and do what you love. With over 2,500 students signing up to this course in the first 3 days, it is very clear this is important to most people. The good news is that you don't need to quit your job or be a single 20-something year old computer savvy to achieve this. It's actually quite simple, once you know how to do it.

Most people have struggled making money in the iOS App Store and Google Play in recent years due to the amount of competition. They spend time, energy and money developing an app but when they upload it the returns are nowhere near what they were expecting.

What if I told you there is another way? This course goes straight to the point and will provide you everything you need, no beating around the bush or repeating the same thing with different words. With an average of 4.94 stars, over 100 '5-star' ratings, and ranked as one of the top selling courses in Entrepreneurship you can be confident that the content you are getting is first class. In 7 quality packed hours you will learn what the successful appreneur's mindset is and which is the strategy that you need to follow. This is an approach that for years has been developed, tested and perfected by the most successful app developers in the world.

I have been developing apps on the side for almost 2 years now, and around 6 months ago, after a lot of research, trial-and-error and exploration, I finally came up with an app business model that seemed profitable. But don't just listen to me, listen to what some of the 3,700+ satisfied students in the course have said:

"I have spent at least a few thousand on Udemy courses about app development, whether it be outsourcing or creating apps yourself. This is by far THE BEST course I have ever taken on Udemy and I am so happy that I came across it. I know it will be life changing. I have learned so much about outsourcing, marketing, ASO/SEO, etc. Diego doesn't just spout out information at you, he shows you each step required. He is also extremely motivational. If you're on the fence about buying this course, BUY IT! It will be the best decision you'll ever make. Thank you Diego for making this course! :)"

- Dimitri Michalakis, 5/5 stars

"For someone like me who is thinking to start designing app since some years and always stopped for lack of resources (mainly money to invest, a team and the knowledge), this course is a real revolution!!
Following these lessons I started to think to this business in a totally different way, meditating on all the possibilities I missed until now and how I can approach them in the next few months to make my dream a reality.
I always thought that I had to learn programming and mobile design, and that I had to find a great idea to invest month of my life on and... bla bla bla... all of these became huge obstacles in my mind.
Now I learned from Diego that I should focus on marketing and analysis (which are already two of my skills) and leave tech stuff to outsourced developers, starting with basic simple apps that could sell well today and maybe give me the cashflow to develop more complex apps tomorrow.
Thank you Diego for showing me the way!"

- Enrico Frascati, 5/5 stars

"I have been looking for a way to learn to create my own apps. Diego has shown me a way to do that without having to learn how to code or program. This course is very well designed and presented, and is for anyone wanting to learn how to create apps with or without any experience in app making. He gives lots of tips and suggestions from his own experiences and lots of resources for the students as well. Thank-you very much Diego :)"

Learned a ton from Diego's course. Its full of great knowledge and best of all, he is pretty active on the discussion board in the course answering questions for students. I would highly recommend this. The value you get from this is worth more than whatever you pay for it.

I had been trying to make money with apps for a few months now without success, but now, after watching this course, I can tell a lot of the things I was doing wrong. I can say, as someone who had tried selling apps before, that this course and the approach it teaches makes so much sense. Now that I've seen it I can't stop thinking why it didn't occur to me earlier... Thanks Diego

It is the worst course I have ever taken on Udemy. I bought it for FREE, but still, I think rather than getting any value, I completely wasted my time. In addition, some lectures have very bad audio quality. Please don't take this course even if someone pays you to take it !!
