Entrepreneurship and App development: How to succeed by filling holes with Aaron Kardell

So this is what UNTETHER.tv is all about. Having a guy like Aaron Kardell on to discuss how he’s built, marketed and sold in the mobile space.

This is a very candid conversation on how Aaron jumped into the app development game, built effective marketing campaigns, decided between freemium and paid apps (while disclosing his conversion rates), and the unshakable disease we call “entrepreneurship” – he’s even had a 10,000 download week for one of his apps.

This is a must watch episode for everyone building and selling apps. Period.
