Today's one of those happy days with lots of trials! (Even if they fail later with billing errors 😅), So thankful! 🙏🏼

Turns out the reason the subscription names aren't in English is that I started out with just Swedish and the English localizations are still 'Waiting for Review'. They were submitted before the summer 🤨

What gives? Do I just redo them or what?

After some research, it seems to be pretty tough to build an alarm that is able to ring from the background, adjust volume and get out of vibrate only 😨 Let's see how far I get! 😅

Hello to 200 followers anyways 🥳

#iosdev #swiftlang #buildinpublic
I just finished the Prototype to add and check bar/qr codes! If you are not able to scan the correct one in time the alarm will come for you ⏰

🤯 I planned to spend half a day on building this feature and it took me 3 DAYS to implement it.

Finally made a search function to find Reels templates or categories. Easy to do on paper but was a challenge with my data model...

👀After 1k MMR pass, can I now officially share my stack for "Reels Templates"?

Getting ready for the iOS 16 launch.

#buildinpublic #iosdev
Tried to match the design of my app to the Bornly website I am working on. I think they look quite similar (and good). What do you think?

#buildinpublic #iosdev
Always learning the hard way...

UI was being locked up so I tried to place a Core Data task on a background thread, which led me to learn that Core Data can only be modified on the same thread it was created, which led me to another solution altogether...

I just published Indie App Development — Big decisions, big regrets?

I discuss a recent hurdle I've run into with migrating from Firebase to Vapor and note the importance of proper planning.

i scrambled to update to iOS16, reproduced the bug, then scrambled to install xcode 14. all kinds of new warnings. i added one line of code and it fixed the issue. hotfix going out. not sure if i'm more happy or pissed.

Been redesigning Gratuity entirely in SwiftUI and so far I’m liking it but I feel like I’m missing some things. Tell me what you think?

First one is the old design, rest are the new design.

@wearebornly I plan to create features that help people manage these exact problems. Tracking, testing, stats, and more. Guiding them through the diet towards a healthier, happier, and more symptom-free life 😍

This is the power of building in public.

4 months ago, I didn't use Twitter & had no friends who share the same goal

Now, I've friends with the same passion.

In this call, we discussed a lot about ASO. @matteo_spada & @KSlazinski are the experts!

Learned a lot! :)

@mackozer @dbabbage @encounters_app @Firebase @EterRadioApp Since NSPersistentCloudKitContainer is Core Data + CloudKit with slow public DB sync, wonder how hard it is to use another local store instead of Core Data and manually subscribe to CloudKit public DB changes and sync changes with local store as they occur

A great feeling to sell a Lifetime subscription! But also a bit sad, since that customer is gone for good. I think, at the beginning that $ will be very helpful to reinvest back to the app and gain more subs.

Do u sell lifetimes in ur apps?
