If you don’t know who Trey Smith is, I’d like to introduce him to you. He’s been a big inspiration to me while I continue to develop games in my spare time. He’s pretty much like Tony Robbins but for apps! He gets you pumped up to “crush it” with apps, as he teaches how to make as much money as possible with the apps and games you release.
Trey is the owner of Kayabit Games & Secret Headquarters, Inc and his new venture Game Academy. This guy doesn’t know how to program a single line of code but he has received more than 10,000,000 downloads for games he has launched in iOS and Android. He’s created the Top 25 iOS games Maze+, Jump Pack, Monster Magic, Animal Mall and Future War.
