Apps have changed the way we communicate, shop, play, interact and travel and their phenomenal popularity has presented possibly the biggest business opportunity in history. George gives you exclusive access to the secrets behind the success of the select group of apps that have achieved billion-dollar success.

I have the idea. I have the details. I know it would go viral. I don't know how to program and would need some legal advice. This idea came to me. I watch the news I see problems that could be solved and this is a simple app that could help so many problems we hear about on the news on a daily basis. And many other types of apps would come out right after it is made. I would give someone a percentage to help me but I have to own at least 51%. My app is not a game it is a way to help society. It is a way to protect society. There are other ideas that I have that I have and I have never thought of any of them. I started with the thought of why hasn't someone else done this before and the details came. Some ideas I have in dreams. They are all super complicated and would take agreements with tech giants. This simple app only needs a programer and legal advice and it will work. I just need someone to show me who to take my app to and make it and I would give them a good percentage. I know it will work.
What's more important than money is power. If you are Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon or Microsoft nobody can live anymore. I imagine Apple and Microsoft shut down and kill all their codes. No machine would run.
all this guy is trying to say in sweet words is "don't loose hope and keep on thinking for new ideas" and when you bridge the gap between technology and human behavior certainly you will find great ideas
This whats up people.....
Different than any other social media network and exceeds all of them.
Its a revolutionizer App that will collapse any competitor.
This App will make users easily superstars by the MILLIONS. It needs to be patented and gorvernment regulated, in addiontion a chosen university will undertake its creation and put into the test from there it will proliferate globally.
Everyone will rush to it and forget about other social media because no one could live without this App. Governments in the world will depend on it.
I know billions will appreciate this useful App and profit from it daily.
Mark me, I dont have the desire to be in the spotlight. Nor wants to be known as billionaire and I`m not even sure if I wanna have that much money to my name.
When money are generated donors must get PAID by the percentage from how much they donated as eternal loyalty for generations by dividing to their future off springs. SO PLEASE, KEEP A RECORD OF YOUR RECEIPT.
If facebook can escort our fundraising securily to its goal is fine with me or even become part of this project..
I have no means of cashing or using or even desire to have access for these funds.
A commitee within the donors its also prefarable for monitoring.
This extreme restriction on myself about the handling of this fundrasiing to its goal is because I believe that this one App will change the use of internet to the next level, I`m talking about "Quadrillions" and we all know that nobody can achieve this alone..
It's an eye opening speech.
Thanks for sharing.
We are a Digital Marketing agency and we provide services for such android application development and promote them online. What we believe is that to build a billion dollar app first we need to figure out the reason what led us to make this application. how it will help the society and what people can expect from it. If a owner/employee can figure out these three things. They can surely make the next billion dollar app!
You cannot make money without having money. Nothing is free. It takes money to pay for monthly fees to even upload an app for sale in google play. Money for monthly and yearly fees to use app creators that are free to use. In order to create a viable app that might make even barely 5% you'd still need at the very least $5000 not including other fees such as anything ancillary. What you see in these videos is nothing but a scheme in order to promote a platform or a guide or a book that costs money. Look at the Bitcoin dominance, now every site and video channel is coming out with ways to invest in the next crypto currency. All these videos and books and guides are just the for fee promotions, it drives up ad clicks, drives up subs, drives up the revenue for the creators.
Hi George, great show. I have an app concept/idea that would be huge, but I do not have the technology background to make it happen. I need to talk to someone such as you or your team. Prior to that though I would need all parties concerned to sign a binding non disclosure agreement/statement. This app is original and I am working towards protecting it as intellectual property. I will not disclose any information until people who would be involved are legally bond to keep it secret. Mark Shean , Solutions De Innovation LLC
