We'll discuss each one in turn: COMPLEXITY Every app is more complicated than you think, but lets see how complex you are thinking first. Suppose you have come up with two ideas that you could build into an app. You've gone through the process in the last chapter, and both look like a good idea in terms of revenue. One of the ideas looks like Idea A in the table below, while one is like Idea B. 35 One of these apps is probably an exaggeration. Maybe it can't actually be done in a weekend. In contrast, the other app is not an exaggeration at all.
If you are more like me and make up things as you go along, you can guess that it won't always be quite as smooth. However excited you are about an idea, it makes sense to take some time to flush it out, write or draw it up, and think about how it will work before you go full swing and get more people working on it. On the other hand, you can't be too rigid or hope to know everything in advance. If you are hiring a developer, or anyone else for that matter, you should ask and answer questions. If you can't find the right people to work on an idea, you might have to put it aside and approach another idea in a different order than you thought.

We define successful in much the same ways that we did in Chapter 3.

The apps that rank for this keyword also rank well in their respective categories and/or the top charts. The searches for this keyword could be both a cause and effect.
