Starting an App Business
There were a few things I had to take care of first on my road to becoming an Appreneur. I had to become legal, as in I had to form some sort of business entity. I decided on an LLC (Limited Liability Company) because it limits my liabilities should someone decide to sue my company.
Reskinning My First App
Okay. I’ve purchased the source code for Word Pic. I bought it with the intention of reskinning it to a logo guessing game. It seemed simple enough to reskin – change the graphics and the concept. Boom and boom. I wanted to keep things simple so I could get the whole reskinning process under my belt. I figured that it would get easier after the first one. I also figured I can reskin this source code with other themes too – but first, let’s just concentrate on reskinning it once.
Picking Source Code
I’ve decided on my first app. It’s a word guessing game where there are tiles that cover a picture and you press the tiles to uncover the picture and try to guess what it is a picture of. I found it on the Blue Cloud Solutions site (it’s called Pic Word). There are two license versions you can buy – one that gives you the ability to reskin the code once and an unlimited license that let’s you reskin the code an unlimited amount of times.
