    The App Store gold rush has proven to be one of the hottest money makers in recent history, where millionaires are created overnight. This has led many beginners to try and enter this business. However most don t know where to begin. While books may be great for certain subjects, app development is not one of them. The Apps 2 Riches course is presented entirely in audio so you can easily absorb the information on the go. This leads to better retention of the material as opposed to reading a book.

    What disappointed you about Apps 2 Riches?

    This book sounds like it was an incomplete draft copy, produced by amateurs. There are multiple volume changes, microphone changes, missing information, retakes, even chapters that sound like they were recorded on a cell phone in the front seat of a car. I wouldn't be so critical, but this book even has a section where the narrator paused, and then said "...........it's that easy" but never gave the information for the example! There is a silent part about an hour in where it looks like the author had intended to fill in the specifics later, and completely forgot! The app-specific info is far too complicated for an audiobook, ie... "goto file, the click the....". Great for a workbook, not an audio book. There was some info that may be useful to anyone building an iPhone game, but the best information I got from this book about building my app was a list of contract app builders!!! OVERALL, 3 / 10


    What was most disappointing about Mark Quinn and Rohan Patel ’s story?

    This was too specific for an audio book. Impossible to follow.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Davenport?

    The sections that were professionally narrated were well done, but there were Many sections of this program that seemed to be haphazardly added after the professional recording was completed. They were a different voice and the recording quality was a drastically lesser quality.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Apps 2 Riches?

    There was far too much software-specific information to follow along in as audiobook without that piece of software open in front of the listener.


    Any additional comments?

    As someone who is excited about designing, building, marketing, and distributing a new app, this recording left me very disappointed.
