Website Design and Development for start-ups. Keys and Steps to success.

startup-bookI have been involved with the development and consulting of several startups over the last 15 years. Some of them failed, others managed to stay afloat over time. At one point I even had under my command the biggest Portal in Greece, and few of the most traffic generating websites in the gaming industry worldwide.

While that’s not totally relevant I just wanted to back up my claims with some real achievements and experience.

How to Develop an iOS app for your Website

startApple is one of the most successful corporations of this century. They have been pioneers in the industry, always showing the way for the competition to follow. They have been responsible for revolutionary products like the macbook, iPhone, iPod and the iPad.

More and more consumers are now picking apple products over those of the competition. This has as much to do with superior technology as the ңoolҠfactor that has come to be associated with Apple devices over the years. The tablet market was a creation of Apple and understandably so, they hold most of the market in that segment. In 2012, 63.5% of the devices sold so far in this category were iOS devices. The real war is being fought over in the smart phone market. Even there, Apple holds 32% of the market. That's a very significant number.
