Get John Chow dot Com At The iTunes Store!

Remember that post from Gary last week on 10 steps to build a $50 iPhone app for your blog? Well, Apple has approved my app and it is now available at the iTunes store. My app is free so if you have an iPhone, please download and use it as it’s a great way to read John Chow dot Com on the iPhone.

The procedure to make your own iPhone app and get it on the iTunes store was amazingly simple and at a cost of only $50, I think it’s something that every blogger should do. The mobile Web is getting bigger and bigger and that means you must expand with it or get left behind.

For those of you who don’t have an iPhone yet, here are some screen shots from the John Chow dot Com iPhone App. I want thank Mr. Gary Lee for all his help with this project. If you haven’t done so, go and read his guide to making your own iPhone app.

  9. Great idea John, I was thinking of creating one myself.

  10. I recently read a blog post where they wewre talking about the value of writing iPhone apps specifically for the backlinks you get from it as well. I realise that is hardly the motivation in this case, but something to remember for the smaller guys.

  11. It looks very well. I’d like to have a try soon.

    1. Yes at $50 this is simple a steal and you should not miss this.

      I would love to see improvements in traffic through this application.

  21. That app looks very professional for only being $50. Nice work, John.

    1. Yes if you can get an apple application at the cost of mere $50 that you should not waste your time and start working on that immediately.

  22. John, I already read your posts using the mobile version of your site on my iPod Touch, but the app would be more handy. Will download it right now. 🙂

  26. How many downloads do you have so far John? I’m considering making an ad for my own site.

  27. really great et me download it jhon….

  28. Great tip. I think having an app will take my blog to the next level “or at least get it started LOL”. How much do you make off the commission from admob. Is it really worth it? Do you have a screen shot with an Ad from AdMob showing? Thank for all the info you give out John.
