Should the freelancer to go into ios development?

Doing web development, but look to ios development. Myself a freelancer - I work only from home. I want to ask knowledgeable - whether to go into ios development, or for freelancer is not a particularly convenient direction, such as the creation of websites? Now making the creation of web shops, all the rules, but I want to master additional direction for earnings. But in ios it makes no sense to get in if you're an independent developer, and it is only good for team work and for finding a permanent job.

I reckon ios above the web at times.
Most of the applications developer is 1m without problems
It seemed to me that you need at least 2 people - the programmer and designer.
But if the app 3-5 screens, that usually also raises the question of UX. - Sammie_Bart commented on July 12th 19 at 17:27

Your comment felt an echo of the marvelous specialization of some freelancers aka "turnkey website". Forget about it forever. This is a very specific and extremely low-paid segment.
People positions itself as a developer - I told him how things are going with developers. - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:30
: hmm, I did not understand. Ie coders - more lucrative segment than the "podklyuchenii"? - providenci_Treut commented on July 12th 19 at 17:33
: "coders" understanding of the "html+css" in my opinion generally are not developers, but the question holivary. Frontend developer (angular, etc.) receives an average certainly not less than the backend and obviously more than a "turnkey website" - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:36
yeah, no holivary is: web designers - not programmers, and html coders. But frontengine - Yes. Probably under freelancers "turn-key" you mean ablesimov and plugindemo, not full-stack developers. - providenci_Treut commented on July 12th 19 at 17:39
: You know how shows at least my personal experience - customers who have money naturally prefer hiring a team. Accordingly, full-stack is a task of the category of "one man band" for nothing. - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:42

You must understand the following, freelancing beginner and even middle of the developer life is very hard. Huge competition with such newcomers and always plenty of more experienced people, ready for a spear and a couple of hours to do something that you don't even know how.

Another thing, if you in the beginning spend a couple of years to work in the office and in good teams all learn. Then it will be possible to talk about something. So if you want to continue freelancing, it is better to do what you are good at.
Yes, like that last 10 years, he mastered without instruction. without work in the office. Get a job do not have to live far from the city. Therefore thought to gradually learn the programming language for ios, to write the first app, upload it to apstar continue to seek orders. - Sammie_Bart commented on July 12th 19 at 17:29
10 years ago all on another, but how much time you spent. OK, write your projects in Apple's app store, but even writing one project, you are unlikely to find freelance orders with such a portfolio. - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:32
: so I'm a developer and his entire career studying something. now look to ios. I don't think the study will take more than a year. it would be aimed only, and then to the office to go is not an option at all. It's outdated and unprofitable. - providenci_Treut commented on July 12th 19 at 17:35
: well, you are quite right, I brought because there, in the office, there is a real ongoing challenges that need to be done. This is a real experience. To learn the house on the same level, you need to have a constant load, many projects and diverse(!) task. You can put them in themselves? If Yes then go ahead. - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:38
: can't. but hope to cooperate with companies specializing in such development. They will throw up the job - initially for a nominal fee, and further more. And then find projects for the customers at favorable prices and to continue to grow and grow. Another question - is it profitable? - providenci_Treut commented on July 12th 19 at 17:41
by : the beginning is not profitable. It is unlikely in the first year you choose for the scope of work "for your portfolio" and work for token money. Then, gradually, Yes. - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:44

If you know English about Upper-Intermediate, the freelance in iOS development will bring in 5 times more money (in my case). Freelancing can also be in the team. In a distributed worldwide team.
Compared to what 5 times more? And what level developer ? - Sammie_Bart commented on July 12th 19 at 17:31
Compared to the typical development of websites and online stores with PHP for local companies. If not June, of course. - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:34
: and as you see in the home to a level easy to grow ? if you take different courses online and place orders? - providenci_Treut commented on July 12th 19 at 17:37
no matter at home or not. Anyway, all you have to learn yourself. Not easy, but not difficult. - margarete_Ferry commented on July 12th 19 at 17:40
Five times in comparison with what amount? Freelancer, rivet sites on WordPress on aduch and freelancer that uses the Symphony to opforce too can have the difference in income 5 times. - providenci_Treut commented on July 12th 19 at 17:43

It is difficult to clearly answer this question, too many individual.
Personally, I just decided to conduct a study on how I like polyproplene suitability, what are the prospects for their projects and freelancing, and do I need any investment of money (for Mac, payment, APD, etc.)
Decided to buy cheap VPS with the Mac (obviously, it is much cheaper than the device), and possibly connect faster Internet (for VPS necessary).
But we'll see. Can a customer agree to develop for iOS/Mac/Safari, it will pay a month VPS, and Internet speed. If these customers will be small, and will to do every time: got money - money invested - work done - VPS and the Internet is over. And if a lot, "will join" the cause, or just money will free the already-on device you can think of (device me more interesting as a repairman of equipment).
You also suggest.

He is now studying the front-end then slowly doing iOS development.
