Relaunch! The 10-Year Plan Continues

10-Year Plan Relaunch (Thumbnail Image)Wow, I was livid with Apple. But on Friday, a Good Friday, I received a series of strange messages from Apple. “Your app (iOS) status is in Review”, “Revisions: New Resolution Center Message”, “Your app (iOS) status is Developer Removed From Sale.” and “The status for your app, Revisions (460834674), is now Ready for Sale.” I had forgotten about the “Revisions” app, figuring that Apple wouldn’t approve it.

ABORT! 10-Year Plan Cancelled

Abort ThumbnailAfter four months of creating apps again, I realized something. This isn’t the path of success. I had learned this harsh lesson already with the creation of “BOT”, but I had to be sure. I was testing new technology and a new methodology in creating / promoting apps.

10 Ways To Save Storage Space (macOS)

MacBook Air ThumbnailAfter years of waiting for Apple to release a decent Mac Mini update, I simply ran out of time. If I was to continue with creating new applications for iOS devices, I needed something that could run Xcode 9. My Mac Mini (Early 2009) simply wasn’t good enough.

Does Apple Love Developers?

The Wrapping app - Thumbnail ImageHappy Valentine’s Day! This post has a multipurpose. First, it’s a nice way to celebrate the holiday. I didn’t plan to announce the “Wrapping” app on Valentine’s Day. It just turned out that way. But since the app icon has a nice heart on top, I figured that I could combine the two events. The plan to launch the app about a week ago. Needless to say, it’s been a rough week. That leads to the theme of this post. Does Apple truly love developers?
