Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The line in my review title is my favorite takeaway from this book, and it hits the nail on the head.

There's been a revolution in the past few years, and Rana is uniquely qualified to tell this story. She was there on day one, waiting for the first iPhone (when it was $599!), saw the need for analytics and co-founded a company right after the iTunes app store opened, and as the first "iPad DJ," took that platform to a place where no one else saw it going.

So if you're a developer, designer, or marketer that wants in on the app revolution, this book is for you. She takes the reader through the initial gold rush of apps, advises on the best strategies on pricing and marketing, and supports it with interviews with reporters from Wired.com and developers that have navigated the app world successfully.

Rana June Sobhany is nothing short of an app guru. Her new book "Mobilize" takes a unique look at capturing the power of the app revolution through the eyes of fellow app revolutionaries' successes and failures. This book encapsulates the secrets of mobile success in 234 pages of solid gold genius. Rana's own app journey doesn't just end with this book either. She is a pioneering and world-renown iPad DJ and continues to break industry barriers with her wildly popular mixes created solely on an iPad-based production studio. Whether you're an industry executive looking to give your product mobile legs, a creative with dreams of taking on digital music frontier or an avid DoodleJump player, "Mobilize" will have something for you.
