One of the latest viral games is called Flappy Bird, which the developer yanked from the App Store. Now other developers are flooding the market with Flappy Bird clones. If you want to create your own Flappy Bird clone, you have several alternatives.
First, you can create a game from scratch using your favorite programming language. For most people, that will take too much time and be way too difficult. As a shortcut, just buy the source code for a Flappy Bird game from a site called Chupamobile.
The idea behind Chupamobile is that making money selling apps is getting increasingly difficult as more apps crowd the App Store. Rather than try to make money selling apps, Chupamobile gives developers a way to make money selling their source code.
You can buy the source code for a Flappy Bird clone (called Flappy Crocodile), customize it with your own graphics, and sell it on the App Store. If you don’t want to create your own Flappy Bird clone, feel free to browse through the variety of games and utilities available on Chupamobile so you can create your own apps while knowing little or no programming. If you thought creating an iOS or Android app would be out of your reach, Chupamobile puts it within your reach just as long as you’re willing to pay the price.
If you know anything about Visual Basic, you can even download a free Flappy Bird clone written in Xojo. Xojo closely mimics Visual Basic except Xojo runs on Windows, OS X, and Linux, so if you know Visual Basic 6 or earlier, you’ll find Xojo nearly identical.
Rather than write your own programs, just buy source code from someone else and customize it for your own needs. You may find that creating your own iOS or Android app could be a lot easier than you might have thought possible.
Creating your own app can be as difficult or as easy as you want. By buying or using source code that someone has already created for you, you can turn your ideas into reality quickly. When you consider that the original Flappy Bird creator was earning $50,000 a day from his app, you can see that software development represents a huge market that you can start part-time in your home while still holding down your regular job.
Once you start selling your own programs, you may find that you don’t need a job any more, or you can use your programs to impress others so you can get a better job where you’ll be rewarded for your programming talent.
Just don’t stay stuck in a corporate bureaucracy where you do nothing of importance and mentally rot away. Start selling your own programs and show the world that you really have the technical skills and imagination to succeed in ways that might even surprise yourself.
