A Flappy Bird knock-off called Flappy Penguin isn’t going to make you a millionaire, but one company hopes that you’ll believe it will.
Will the next viral video came come from someone without programming skills? A company called Chupamobile hopes that you hope so.
The London-based website allows developers to sell the source code for their apps and games. There, customers an app template, change a few colors, throw in a few ads, and release the app on iOS and Android… and profit.
At least that’s the dream. And there must be something to it, because Chupamobile just received about $1.3 million in investments to make it happen.
My opinion: No, it’s not going to happen for you that way.
What is going to happen is that a number of developers are going to make a bunch of money selling their apps. If you’re a developer, this website will be great for you.
