| | is developing for berry worth it?
Please Login to Remove!
Hi, i recently got a Bold. I totaly hate it, but the details don't matter.
I've been developing a few apps for other devices, and i wonder if i should at least use the berry to develop some stuff for it and sell it..
So, is it worth the investment? I see apps around 2€ to 30€, and i estimate i'd need around 20 hours for something basic. If i put that on my website, i'll maybe sell 2 copies...
Where do you guys sell your apps? Is it ok revenue ( i just expect to some day get the money for that device back... ) for a one-man-show, or do you need to be famous and huge? Propably berry users are a lot more business oriented and are willing to pay for good software, but i believe business people tend to only buy from other business people with armani suits.
I'm actually a unix and desktop dev for a living, so maybe somone could give me some hints what desktop apps people would want for their berries.
(sync bookmarks with firefox? sync with ... errr... word? sounds useless... we'll i'm a techie, i read raw html :P ).
I'm stuck. Maybe i should just throw the thing away and learn my 300€ leasson?
