Stop complaining if you want to make millions from iPhone apps

Dan Kimerling from TechCrunch has an interesting post on disgruntled iPhone application developers that ran into some problems with Apple. A good example of a disgruntled iPhone app developer can be found from the following video.

Now, Dan also sent out a very strong message to those disgruntled iPhone app developers and I would like to quote his message here:
…those who love the App Store and those who loathe it, recall that the power of the platform is to create a system which connects software developers and consumers of that software. But when someone makes a platform, they also control the rules which go along with that platform. And right now the platform to be on is the iPhone platform. To those who are unhappy with the restrictions that Apple places on the App Store, don’t complain…

I have to agree with Dan. iPhone application developers should not complain about the way Apple handles their businesses. If they really want to make money from iPhone apps, they should strive to meet Apple’s expectations and requirements.

Take a look at those Facebook application developers for an example. They didn’t complain much and now some of them are already making lots of money from their Facebook apps. One of them even made more than 1 million dollars per month!

Have patience, my dear iPhone application developers. Follow instructions first, only then you can make lots of money from iPhone apps. :-)
