After 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. Would this time be different? NO! It was a disappointment. So, what went wrong?
With the release of iOS 11, many of my original iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch apps stopped working. 64-bit mode is now required. So, I went back to the beginning – to Revisions. It was my very first book and my very first app. Ah, it started out in Android back in those days. But since it was a WebView app, it wasn’t long before Revisions was on iOS too. That’s why Tumult Hype is interesting. I’ve been with experimenting with Hype projects as apps. I’ve had some success and some failures. This “Book” template for Tumult Hype highlights the matter.
After 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. Apple was basically saying upgrade or die. So, I upgraded. My main computer is now a 2017 MacBook Air. It’s a great computer, but it has one major issue. It only has a 128 GB of storage space.
Happy 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?
Perhaps this is a stupid plan. I could have done things the easy way. I could have invested in Dogecoin and been a millionaire by now. But nooooooo, even though I had cryptocurrencies on my list of possible projects for 2017, I decided to return to the madness of the app stores. WHY?! It’s not just about creating wealth, it’s about creating something of value. It’s about building “Photics” as a brand – a household name. With the second app of the 10-Year Plan published, is the project moving in the right direction?
