Luckily, we've delved into the pages of Idea to iPhone by Carla White to discover some top tips, handy hints and expert advice to help you avoid hefty bills.

"For those who think that app success is reserved for software giants with budgets the size of the Gobi Desert or technical geniuses that rival Mark Zuckerberg, pull up a chair and hear this. Although the app market might seem impenetrable to the average person who has wonderful app ideas but not necessarily the technical wits to produce them, the truth is that creating a great app is not rocket science.
Just like you, some of the most successful app inventors began with an idea, and working in their basements and bedrooms created apps that millions now enjoy. These apps catapult birds at pigs, transform a dull photo into something cool and retro, or hail a taxi with just one tap.
Whether you're so passionate about an app idea that it robs you of sleep, your boss asked you to create one, or you just want to figure out how to do it, jump in with everything you've got and enjoy the ride."
