Get started with app reskinning

What is App reskinning?

Well basically, app reskinning is a process by which you modify an already existing app and tweak it to make it look different. You modify its graphics, assets, music, sound effects and design but leave the code as is. What you'll end up with is the same working app, but with a different "skin", a different visual appearance built according to your own creativity and ideas.
Many appreneurs have ventured into this app flipping business as a quicker way to get an app published to the App Store in order to generate streaming revenues. You can read more about the benefits of app flipping and app reskinning.
