If you’ve done any iOS development – heck maybe even if you’ve just sent out one tweet out expressing an interest in iPhone development then you may have been approached by someone with a “great app idea”. Unfortunately, most of the time things just don’t pan out.
There are many good opportunities out there, but even more that won’t be worth your time. I found a good article providing suggestions on how you can avoid wasting your time. Much of this is going to come across as common sense, but it’s nice to have a checklist of things.
- Investigate the people behind the project and do your due diligence.
- Get a retainer up front
- Get it in writing
- Be clear about how long you will work for, how many hours you will work on things
- If anything feels wrong don’t get involved
The article is from iPhone developer Richard Hart who has been developing on the iPhone platform for two years, and also teaches iPhone and iPad courses at BCIT in Vancouver, BC Canada.
