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.

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?

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 🧭

That's it for tonight πŸ™Œ

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

Time to re-do this purchase screen

Lmk if I can blatantly copy some1.

Will post progress as I go πŸ‘Œ

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?

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Not bad ey?

🚨 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˜…

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?!
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!

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


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¦‰
