Submission + - SPAM: Mobile Word Game: From Concept to Reality

nicedog writes: "Ever wondered how a smartphone app goes from just being a concept to the app store? Do you have an idea for The Next Big App, but not sure how to make it happen?

Hitcents.com documents the process of bringing PictureTHIS — a new picture-based word game for iOS and Android — from concept to reality.

The case study gives insight into their process — brainstorming, doing research, improving gameplay, overcoming obstacles, making technical decisions, misgivings, etc.

Interesting topics include monetizing, graphic design, developing for both iOS and Android with a common code base using MonoTouch, backend development using mod_perl, Test-Driven Development (TDD), MySQL vs MongoDB, using Amazon EC2, stress-testing, and more."
