Indie Devs

So I just released a FREE version of my app iLearn Math. Now I need downloads and ratings. I was thinking, there are so many indie devs out there and they are all on twitter, hmmmm.

I recently joined the IDRTG in hopes of improving sales, but that hasnt done a lot for me yet. What if we posted our apps on twitter with a hashtag, then every dev then does the download, rate (5 stars with or without a written review), delete (or DRD). Tag the post as #DRD and check that hashtag whenever you can. Obviously don’t delete the app if its something you would use or even share with others 🙂

What do you think? Contact me on twitter @jon01. I also made a Facebook group called Indie Devs, UNITE feel free to join and post your app!

I’ll do it if you do it!

UPDATE: It seems the facebook group is doing really well. Please join it and share your app! Indie Devs, UNITE

iLearn Math Lite

Just released tonight! The LITE version of my game, iLearn Math. In this version you can play the basic game but only unlock the beginner difficulty.

The FULL version (99 cents) has 2 more difficulties and themes to unlock too! Give the free version a try and PLEASE rate the game.

Sharing Photos on iOS

I was about to create a shared Photo Stream with my wife’s side of the family and figured I should probably be typing out what I did in case anyone else wants to know how to set it up. Shared Photo Streams is one of the new features in iOS 6, so everyone you invite has to be running it on their device. It’s a great feature that I hope I use more often and I hope apple improves on in future versions. Anyway, here’s how to do it.

Open the Photos app and into your camera roll. Tap edit in the upper right corner and select the pictures you want to add then tap Share on the bottom and tap Photo Stream. Tap New Photo Stream then enter the email addresses of who you want to see the pictures. Name the Photo Stream and select if you want to make it a public website or not then tap Next. Add a comment on the album you just created if you want then tap Post in the upper right. Everyone you invited will get a push notification asking them to join your Photo Stream. If you made a public website, you can go to Photo Stream and hit the blue arrow next to the album you just created. Just tap Share Link and you can email, iMessage, twitter or facebook the link.

It’s as simple as that! Good luck, let me know how it goes.
