Year of Indie in review:

To continue with yesterday's review of the Copywriter app, here is a rundown of the whole 21/22-year progress πŸ“ˆ

Lesson learned πŸ‘‡
Do ALL the things to market the product, do not get cocky or expect the product to sell itself.

#buildinpublic
Thinking of reviving skeuomorphic design for one of mu latest apps. Interested if you feel its only nostalgia related or can it really work well?

#buildinpublic
It is an AI writing tool with various categories and more to come.

I just added translations and paraphrase sections, but I think I will switch from this approach to something more custom per each category.

this app can develop in so many directions 🧭

#buildinpublic
That's it for tonight πŸ™Œ

- added a promo video
- cleaner UI
- image variant capability

#buildinpublic
Time to re-do this purchase screen

Lmk if I can blatantly copy some1.

Will post progress as I go πŸ‘Œ

#buildinpublic
A bit out of my comfort zone, working with daVinci Resolve and literally 0 experience πŸ˜…

Thankfully there are LOADS of peeps on youtube with truly helpful stuff.

What do you think of the promo video/screenshot for Thoth Ai?

#buildinpublic
Video makes all the difference on the AppStore listing. un:safe has had major success with it.

So...time to give the same treatment to Thoth!

p.s. i know my handwriting is chicken scratch.

#buildinpublic
Working on a little somethin' something' for Barny πŸ™Œ

What do you think about this interaction? Too much rubbery or let it rip?

#buildinpublic
Oh wow, (Barny for Twitter)@my_latest_app is picking up steam!!!

Minor panic ensues when I remember all the major bugs I still have in the app 😬

Major props to @FosiaDesign for letting me know about this feature! Would not have known otherwise πŸ™Œ

#buildinpublic
Getting ready for version 2.0, but first, I need to work on my screenshots for the app store ⚑️

#buildinpublic
In barny 2.0 this is how you will be able to see the repliedTo tweet :)

Not bad ey?

#buildinpublic
🚨 Update!
UN:SAFE, my beloved Apple Watch app got to a version 2.0

It is now free with an IAP. Hope this will increase its reach (reporting on it tomorrow)

Optimized some #ASO points, hoping for the best 🀞

Whenever I do this, you know I am about to introduce a view-breaking change, and I wanna make sure to know which code is the critical one πŸ˜…

#buildinpublic
What can I say. I love animations πŸ˜…

Plan to move the unsafe to free app model with the main mechanics as paid.

However, there is a new game mode which is free πŸ™Œ

What do you think?!
#buildinpublic
oohhh wow, so Twitter API can recognise entities by default?

Xcode was not a hashtag or anything, but maybe I can bold recognized items for...research purposes? πŸ˜…

Or color depending on the type!? This is going to be fun!

#buildinpublic
How do I name a button that shows the tweet you are replying to?

#buildinpublic
TIS DONE!

Video rendering totally effed my up. Quality is πŸ‘Ž

Do check it out. I just know there are some spelling mistakes in there but πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

@DoleeYang Thank you for nagging me, that was quite the intention of #buildinpublic idea so I wanted to share bug moments as well πŸ˜…

Have to look into this.
You have lists on twitter right?
Compression killed it a bit, but thought to add some progressView swag πŸ¦‰
