Articles for App Store Developers

Thanks to Arn and the rest of the great people at MR, there is now an App Store Business, Legal and Marketing Forum! This thread has been moved and I will continue to update it when new articles catch my eye. If you notice any missing links, please let me know.

Here are some development articles from the past month is case you missed them:

A developer works on reaching $10,000 in revenue.

I've bookmarked these links as there is a lot of reading on my travels to becoming a good App developer.

Once again, thank you for the updated link. I was actually thinking about the developers of the App - especially since they made it into the WWDC content this year.
