Business and Legal Services for Mobile Developers of Games and Apps
“How do I form a company or a LLC for my mobile games / app studio?”
“How do I turn my app development into a business?”

Although making apps may seem like fun and games, it’s a real business and should be treated as such – even if you’re doing it in your underwear. You’re making intellectual property and you can protect them as well as making sure you’re not in violation of any laws while you’re developing your software.
