Primary Preparation: Delineate the entire sketch or history of the game on a piece of paper. Put together all the elements viz. history, photos and animation sequences. Let others offer their inputs/reviews on the concept and take into account these reviews before starting the coding part.

Frequent Testing: This is the next phase of development which is performed to ward off any error in the application developed. You can use the functions available with the SDK to check for the functionality and code. Ensure that everything is well planned prior to submitting it to the Apple store.

Updates on Publication: You should request live on the iTunes store to look out for users' feedback. It will enable you correct errors, which can be released as periodic updates of the application. Stay in touch with your audience and reply to their feedback.
