Straight From the Pros

Do you finally want to stop stressing about discovery on the app store, get your app in front of a larger audience, and build a sustainable business that brings you steady income (even if you’re just starting out)?

Sounds good, right? Have you ever asked yourself, “Why can’t someone just tell me, step-by-step, EXACTLY how I can get downloads and money from my apps so I can focus on what I really like to do instead of worrying about marketing all the time?”

I get it. Our amazing world-class speakers get it. We’ve been exactly where you are right now. I wish I had this virtual summit and valuable training when I started out. It would have saved me months and months of frustration trying to figure things out on my own. You want to learn from someone who can share every step of the way how you can build a powerful mobile network.

That is what The Appreneur Summit – the biggest solo/small team app and game developer conference in the world (well, at least virtually!) – is all about.

I hand-picked speakers who each have influenced me in some way and have impressive track records. Most importantly, they have generously offered to share their secret formulas with you. All I can say is, you’re in for a TREAT with massive amounts of value you won’t be able to find anywhere else!

This year, don’t you want to open those daily emails and see the DOWNLOADS and PROFITS you really deserve?

Isn’t it time you did things differently?

Make this the year your app business really takes off!

Praise for The Appreneur Summit

To be honest, this was probably one of the best (if not the best) training experience for the app market I’ve ever seen! I recommended it to many of my friends and they said the same thing.HUMZA
That was incredible, thank you so much! I’ve already implemented some of what I’ve learned. Am so hoping these changes will help to start making me some money from my games.NICOLA QUINN, ENQUINN APPS
Thanks for providing us with so much value. I watched all 32 interviews and now see our app business in a very different way. We already took some action (social media & web presence) and will implement the rest gradually (ASO tips & tricks first!).MATT O.
I liked how you didn’t just gloss over the various topics or let any of the speakers give a broad, high level answer. Rather, you put them on the spot and asked them to be specific and provide details–which is where the true value lies. Overall, excellent job!ALAN NAWOJ, BEACON MOBILE
It opened my mind, broadened my perspective and gave me real insights into a way forward. Ultimately I can rely on this info rather than some random blog I find on the net, because they are bona fide experts in their field.TONY M
Praise for the companion book,
The Appreneur Playbook
YES. Feeling a deep sense of gratitude. Thank you Charlyn, for creating a step by step for all of us appreneurs out there.T. RAVEN
Save time, grab this book and save your startup. I was impressed by the cleverness of her Appreneur Summit and watched quite a few of the videos when it was being held. My background includes decades of software development, including shipping products used by tens of thousands of users…I still picked up some valuable points from the summit videos.ANDY DENT
Read the book cover to cover and discovered a ton of great information.PAUL SOLT
This is a “must have” book for new developers entering the mobile apps industry. It is packed with up to date expert advice on how to go from an app idea to development, marketing, and get noticed in today’s saturated App Stores. Read this book before you design your first screen or write any code, and it will save you months of frustration. S. MEYER
I highlighted so many lines that I gave up after a while. I will return to it again and again.ERIN U.
This is a must-read book for anyone looking to build a business or profit from mobile apps, especially indie developers who may already have some experience in the App Stores but have not yet seen the type of success they would need to do it full-time. Not only is the content itself very valuable, but seeing how others have been successful with these strategies is very motivational and inspirational. I highly recommend it!ALAN N.

This is high quality training that will benefit and be of value to you, no matter if you’re just starting out, or if you have been building your app portfolio for years. I structure The Appreneur Summit with the audience (YOU!) in mind and have divided it into different sections and tracks where you can consume the interviews you desire and want to learn more from. Want to focus on games? Prefer to make apps? Just starting out? Already in the app store? Pick the track that suits you best.

Meet Your Host

Welcome! I’m Charlyn Keating (, an appreneur, programmer, and mobile game developer. I help solo and small-team app and game developers, just like YOU, build sustainable and profitable businesses on the app store.

I organized the Appreneur Summit because I was frustrated. I had poured my heart, my soul, and all my savings into an app that wasn’t exactly setting the App Store on fire. I knew if I could figure out what I was doing wrong, I could turn things around.

And it worked. Since then, my apps consistently hit the top charts on both Apple and Google. I’ve been featured by Apple, consistently hit the top-grossing charts, and even went to #4 on Google Play. The Appreneur Summit changed the way I was thinking about my apps. And I wasn’t the only one. I heard from hundreds of entrepreneurs who attended the original Summit, all saying essentially the same thing: “Thank you!”

The Appreneur Summit is the #1 online conference. It will will empower you to launch, grow and monetize your app network. Forty-four of the world’s leading mobile entrepreneurs–who have been exactly where you are–will show you how.

You can attend this event online, from wherever you are in the world, at no cost! My mission is to help and inspire YOU to get your great ideas into the hands of as many people as possible.
