Emoji App Service
Emoji App Service
Emoji apps are the hottest new genre on the App Store. Many entrepreneurs are re-discovering the magic of creating a quality product and SELLING it for a guaranteed return on investment.
iOS 10 and especially iOS 11 make it easier than ever for users to share stickers in their text messages. Apple is also running ad campaigns, and featuring emoji apps prominently in the App Store.
Our mission is to help you make money with apps.
Our development system is based on:
If you are looking for a real and significant return on your investment, our service will come at a premium price, but it will also deliver the highest quality product possible within its price range.
We guide you through the process from the beginning. You're welcome to share notes as your app progresses, however you can rest assured that your project is in expert hands.
Wharton Apps uses 4 specialized team members for your project:
The Emoji App Service includes the following:
To commission a high-performing emoji app, please anticipate the following costs:
Wharton Apps will recommend a specific illustrator for your project, but we'll also share art samples and illustration rates from multiple illustrators. This gives you the flexibility to either accept our recommendation, or hire one of our other illustrators who meets your needs and budget goals.
We anticipate spending about $20 per illustration on 35 illustrations, for a total cost of $700 USD, plus an additional $100 in design exploration. Because illustrators' rates vary, you may decide to produce more or fewer illustrations.
The timeline depends on the illustrator you choose, and their availability.
Most of the time, a good illustrator is not available to start work on the day we reach out to them, so we may have to wait 2-3 weeks for them to finish other work before they can begin your emoji project. Usually it takes an illustrator 3-4 weeks to finish enough emoji to fill an app.
After the illustrations are finished, Wharton Apps updates the source code with the new artwork. It takes up to 1.5 weeks for our team to upload the finished artwork, edit the app, and submit to the App Store.
Finally, Apple takes 1-2 days to approve a finished app.
We plan to be available to make future updates to your app. However, we believe that as our customers, you have the right to update your app independently or work with any developer you choose after our contract ends.
For this reason, we will send you a copy of the complete source code. Please note, however, that the source code is only to be used to update this app. You will not be licensed to create derivative apps, or sub-license the source code to others.
Hopefully we have articulated where your money goes, and why our services cost what they do.
You have the option to pay the illustrator separately, or bundle the illustrations with the app. If you prefer for our company to pay the illustrator, then payment can be arranged as follows:
If this is satisfactory to you, please send your $700 USD deposit by PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org today or tomorrow, and we can get on a phone call immediately to discuss your project.
We'll start immediately by hiring our team illustrators to make test emoji. After you approve an illustrator, we'll book your chosen illustrator. This is important so that we can get your project on their schedule as soon as possible.
If you're not sure what theme to use, we have a great recommendation for you. (We'll update this once someone claims it.) Right now, we recommend poodles based on these factors:
If you are not sure about poodles, just Google "popular dogs in USA" for a list of other high-potential dog breeds. Dog emojis are hugely popular on the App Store, and numerous interviews with emoji app entrepreneurs have confirmed that this is a highly successful niche.
You can finalize a decision on which emoji subject to use shortly after sending your deposit.
If you send the deposit now, we can begin checking on our illustrator's schedules and collaborate with you to finalize the decision about your emoji app subject.
If you have any questions, please contact us! Thank you for your interest.
