I have removed all my apps from the app store for the time being. They are all in dire need of updating and I have fallen behind on my coding skills as Apple continues to update their standards and Swift code. Apple is sending out directives to update said apps, purging the app store of old apps so rather than scramble to update, I am just taking them all down for now.
I went into app coding hoping it would bring in some income and in some respects it did but not the way I was hoping. I could get off my lazy ass and go out and drum up some new business but things have moved in a different direction for me and trying to convince people to spend money on an app is not how I want to spend my time.
I may, or may not update my current apps after the first of the year, depends on how I feel then. It costs me a small amount of money to maintain my app coding status with Apple and I haven’t been able to make enough to break even so there seems little sense to continue unless I come up with some killer app idea. Unlikely as most of us independent app developers don’t make shit compared to a few big app companies.
So, for now, no apps from the Fritter. The ebooks will definitely stay online. Surprisingly, they are making some money. Not a lot but way more than I anticipated. Apparently I’m better at writing bullshit than I am writing code. No matter. Learning to code was a tough gig but it was worth it. I learned a lot and maybe I’ll get back into it next year.
To any of you who did download any of my apps, I thank you very much. The downloads will still work as long as they are compatible with the iOS program. So you can continue to use them. For now though, I am out of the app development business.
