Today’s show is a special episode full of goodies sent in from listeners, marketing tips from Steve P. Young, an announcement that I will be taking a break from the show until January 2014, and a few things I’m thankful for this holiday season! Enjoy
Baby Names Mania - Baby Names Mania will give you loads of beautiful and original baby name suggestions for your baby! The app also features top lists of the most popular names right now among expectant parents. (For iPhone/iPad)
Today’s show is an interview with Leon Yeh, the CTO of MobiTen, an innovative mobile app company in Portland, Oregon. Rather than developing consumer apps for the iTunes App Store, Leon focuses more on building mobile app platforms for private enterprises. You wont want to miss Leon’s stories of trial and triumph, ranging from robotics, the dot-com boom, and today’s rapidly changing mobile landscape. There are some encouraging life lessons at the end, so sit back and enjoy
Also, check out the My Appventure podcast on MobiTen’s Pinterine app for iPhone/iPad!
I’d love to hear your feedback on the show. Please leave comments below, or a review on iTunes. Thanks!
On today’s show I break the sad news that no-one submitted any audio clips of their own app store pricing advice. [Sniffle] But the show must go on!
This time, I offer up a simpler and more advantageous opportunity to the listening audience… send me a short audio clip describing an app that you’re working on. This is a great way to get a few minutes of free marketing on the show Send a 3-5 minute audio clip (mp3) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 22nd.
Also, listen in for an update on how my partner Alex (from Atomic Robot) and I have decided to alter our pricing for the launch of Quotely.
On today’s show I discuss my thoughts about app store pricing, looking at some of the pros and cons of having a free app VS a paid app. I’m currently working on an app for parents called Quotely, and I explain my pricing strategy for this upcoming app in detail.
I also spend a few minutes talking about Jeremy Olson’s graph below. It’s helpful to know which general category best applies to your app.
Apps can be divided into categories by profit per user and number of downloads. – Jeremy Olson
NEW IDEA: At the end of the show I pitch an idea for something I’d like to try with the podcast…
I want to get YOU more involved in the show by sharing your own thoughts and stories about app store pricing. Just open up the Voice Memos app on your iPhone and record a 3-5 minute audio clip about your thoughts on app pricing. It could be a lesson you’ve learned, a quick story, or a good resource people should check out.
Please email your mp3 to email@example.com and I’ll try to air it on the next show Don’t feel like you have to be an app store millionaire to send in a clip! Just keep it fun and simple.
On today’s show I have 3 guests from Atomic Robot to tell the story of how they all met and formed their mobile app agency. If you’re working independently, or you’d like to take the leap someday, then you’ll definitely want to listen in and gain some insights!
If you like the podcast, we’d love an iTunes review :) Thanks, God bless!
Today’s guests are Ari Fuchs and Michael Vitrano from Aviary. In this interview we discuss the Aviary SDK which enables developers to quickly add powerful photo editing features into their apps. This is a resource that I’m personally dying to use in my forthcoming app Quotely.
Aviary has been around since 2007, many of you probably remember their Flash-based web apps that rivaled Photoshop and Illustrator. A lot has changed since then, and Ari tells all about the difficult decision to close down those professional tools in favor of a cross-platform photo editor aimed at consumers.
Michael is an iOS developer for Aviary (it’s his first job out of college) and he explains how easy it is to integrate the Aviary SDK into your project and even customize the appearance of it.
Have more questions about Aviary? Feel free to email Ari or Michael anytime, they’re swell guys

On today’s show I talk about how I use a service called Clarity to GIVE and GET professional advice over the phone. I also provide a quick update on Quotely. Good news… I’ve teamed up with another developer!
Thanks everyone, hope you enjoy this quick little grab-bag episode of resources and updates.
Today’s guest is Xavier Veyrat, designer of AppCooker, an amazing tool to manage all of the pre-production work that goes into your app. Cook up interactive prototypes, icons, keywords, and even pricing models. If companies like Disney, EA and even Apple are using AppCooker to make their apps, then yeah… you might want to check this thing out!
Xavier is one of a two-man team behind AppCooker. After 3 years of work, focusing on powerful features and ease-of-use, they are happy to say that AppCooker sustains both of them full-time. You’ll also find out in today’s interview how Xavier handled some severe app store rejection delays, and how he met his business partner on a day that he initially thought was a total waste.
