San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
The App Age has arrived. Only people living under a moon rock for the past few years, could have missed how massive the multi-billion dollar app industry has become. From games to restaurant reservations and reviews, apps have fundamentally changed the way people live their lives. Apple recently celebrated its 25 billionth app download. Thats about 3.5 apps downloaded for every person alive in the world today! And with a total of 315 million iPhone, iPod Touches, and iPads sold in over 120 countries to date, there is no question that people are now living on the Planet of the Apps.
Whats even more exciting is the fact that app developers are often regular people working from home with limited resources. They call themselves appreneurs - entrepreneurs who develop apps and with the type of market reach Apple has created for them, its not surprising that quite a few have become fast track millionaires. Tayfun Karadeniz, is one such successful appreneur. As founder, co-founder, and partner in several iPhone app companies, he oversaw the creation of over 55 apps which have been downloaded over 25 million times worldwide. The Turkish-German immigrant had little to no money when he arrived in the United States but is now living the American Dream or the App Dream as some might say.
Karadeniz has been part of the app craze from the beginning and has seen the app market mature over the last few years. According to the 33-year-old, the latest way to make money in the app world is not just selling apps but selling entire app companies. Karadeniz was among the first to notice this acquisition trend. Soon after, Karadeniz and his business partner sold three app companies, to the tune of millions. Karadeniz knows that hes not alone in this recent trend, stating, several of my appreneur friends have also sold their companies or are in the process of selling them to larger companies.
Karadeniz believes that more and more companies are noticing that they will be left behind if they dont make an aggressive move now and their solution is to acquire app companies as a fast entry into the market. He also stated, Just look at Facebook. They already have a strong mobile presence, they are one of the most successful technology companies in the world, and yet they just paid a billion dollars for a single app. Instagram. This trend is here to stay. Karadeniz has been a major player in the app industry for over three years and shows no signs of slowing down. He now consults for larger companies, gives speeches at top app conferences, and has just launched his website http://www.TayfunKaradeniz.com to provide insight on app development and current app trends.
The success of appreneurs like Karadeniz, whether through app development or the newest acquisition trend, is a testament to the app phenomenon that is growing by the minute with absolutely no end in sight. Until this trend slows down, millionaires will be made and the app craze will continue to take over the world, one download at a time.
