July 18, 2014 in Income Reports
Welcome to my June 2014 passive income report. There is not too much to share on this income report except that I have been busy reskinning another iPhone app. This new app is based off of the popular Mustache Bash source code by Austin Church. I bought this code about 4-5 months ago and finally decided I was going to make a photo app as my next project. This will be my 5th app reskin and it is definitely NOT a source code that a beginner should start with.
I looked at the images that needed changing in this app and realized that there are a TON of them! The task seemed overwhelming contrary to the fact that most app source code sellers say changing the images is easy. For me, I like to change the entire look of the app which makes my job a lot more time consuming. Most of the time, I don’t want my apps to look anything like the original. But all my years in video production has made me proficient in Photoshop and I can create my own graphics pretty quickly.
Hiring A Graphic Designer Is Too Expensive For Me Right Now
A few months ago, I contacted a graphic designer to see how much it would cost to have his team create all the graphics. The bid I got was $300 for the interface graphics and $400 for the changing all the mustache images. That comes out to a total of $700 just for graphics! I’m not making much money from apps so I’m not ready to pay that amount at this time. After all, I already spent $400 on this source code so I would have $1100 in expenses before I even get the app into the App Store.
So I’m currently in the middle of making all the graphics for this new app and it’s taking all my free time in June to do it. However, I do find the process fun because I love Photoshop. The app should be released in July so I’m excited for that! I still have a bunch of other source codes I’ve purchased that I haven’t touched yet. Eventually I’ll get to reskinning them.
I am also reskinning another app at the same time too! I bought a Bingo source code this month and have finished the graphics on this one. The last thing I have to do is testing. So now that I look back at June, I have been quite busy reskinning these 2 apps.
That’s all I have for this month. Here’s the Income Report.
