A couple of days ago I submitted my first personal app to the Apple App Store. I know it can be surprising considering the few years I spent doing iOS development professionally. You may know this but I was more into Windows phone from its inception until Microsoft decided to murder it a few months ago. As a result, I fully switched to Apple, from the phone to the watch to the mac. Still kept my Windows laptop though.
You may remember that underwhelming post I made a few months ago. I wrote it while high on entrepreneurship. As you may not feel like reading it I’ll sum up. I hinted at a side project that could become something cool, something potentially big. I read a lot of blog posts from people who had that illumination on an issue they could solve. People building a solution that could change lives for the better. I think my first mistake was thinking I could force that. I write decent code and designed a few solutions but it was always driven by someone else vision or convictions. All I had to do was find an idea that could make people’s day to day life easier.
