    Apple’s iTunes store has more than 1.5 million apps available for sale, and at one point, it was introducing about 275 apps every day. So, it’s no surprise that app development is at the heart of media entrepreneurship right now, and that students and professionals are looking to develop their own information and service apps.

    But where do you start? In our #EdShift chat on Tuesday, March 1, we’ll cover how to build and market an app, and what to know if you’re getting into the app development game.

    The chat, which you can find by searching for the #EdShift Twitter hashtag, will be moderated by Stacy Forster of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Amy Schmitz Weiss of San Diego State University; Laura Davis of the University of Southern California; Dana Coester of the University of West Virginia; and entrepreneur and technologist Ricky Kirkendall.
