A Marketer's Complete Guide to Launching Mobile Apps According to former CEO of AppVee and AndroidApps Alex Ahlund, the average cost to develop a mobile app is $6,453 -- and the cost can skyrocket to as much as $150,000 depending on the complexity of the app. Wherever you fall on that spectrum, the money and resources you dedicate to conceptualizing and developing a truly great mobile app can all be put to waste if you don't orchestrate a proper mobile app launch. In fact, in December 2011, the 1 millionth mobile app was pushed to market. To give you an idea of just how quickly these mobile apps are being released, at the end of 2010, there were 300,000 mobile apps.
Human Workers, Managed by an Algorithm Global workforce: Remote digital workers earned $0.32 each for producing these self-portraits. Stephanie Hamilton is part of something larger than herself.

The ‘Happiness’ StartUp Part Deux. Rules to Live By. Last November, I wrote one of my favorite blog posts, the original “Happiness StartUp: Rules To Live By.” It’s still something I read at least twice a month to remind myself of why we do the things we do, why it’s important to struggle, and why to never make your memories, greater than your dreams.
