    Lots and lots of information, I can't wait to listen to it again, so it can really sink in. Wow what a great course.

    I was a bit disappointed, the content wasn't what I expected. In answer to the question of how to "Make Your Own App: No Coding Required" - the answer is to hire an experienced app developer to do it for you and pay them many hundreds or thousands of dollars. That wasn't quite the answer I was looking for. Without that sort of budget, you are still left with no app. What might have been the most interesting session in the series about how to monetize your app, came right at the end and I think we were out of time because it was at lightening speed and although I had a lot of interest and questions in this area, it is still a complete mystery to me. Very few of the questions from the online audience were addressed during the session. A certain degree of prior knowledge was also assumed throughout which I did not have. The guy certainly knows his stuff and is very successful, but check out the content carefully to make sure he will be covering the exact things you want to know.
