I’ve worked on quite a few mobile development platforms. While all of them have their quirks, none can match the LOVE I feel from Apple.
No other platform gives me butterflies during compiling. Nor can they incite the roller-coaster ride of emotions during the submission process. What will it be today? Provision issues? Human interface guideline issues? Sales and trends down for 15 hours?
Yet despite all of this, there are thousands of apps released everyday for this platform. Apple definitely has the ecosystem of hungry fish, and plenty of food to feed them. Unlike Windows, who will pay for apps at this point in time. Or the complete wild wild west of the Android market place.
Recently I’ve decided to publish my first paid app. I took a different approach this time. I didn’t just make a random flash light app or phone fart like the last time. I partnered with a world renowned astrologer Robin Armstrong, the former astrology writer for Sympatico.ca to make a modern day Astrology application. The app is like a daily horoscope, except it tells you about the compatibility you have with your partner. It can be used for both business meeting and romantic meetings. Apparently Pierre Trudeau used astrology to help pass bills, by making sure his opponents made decisions when Mercury was in retrograde.
I’m still in the process of collecting sales data, and I’ll post the results post in a few weeks. I made some pretty unique banners so hopefully they’ll attract some buyers.
