March Mobile App Progress Report

7 Apr
2015

March was another busy… where did the time go?….kind of month. There are a lot of changes and movements going on in my life right now outside of app development. I’m behind where I wanted to be with app development progress overall, but I’m not too down about it because I have been getting a lot of efficient design & development done in small amounts of time.  Eventually things will smooth out some and I’ll put my app development on some sort of schedule. Here’s an overview of what happened in app development land in March….

  • Quiz of Medicine received an update on Android(Google Play & Amazon). This version 1.2 update included a new loading icon and faster startup load times. I also fixed lag issues on older devices and text that would display oddly on certain devices.
  • The biggest update this month was the Professor Piggy Bank 1.5 update (1.6 on Android). This update included enhanced coin graphics, new piggy bank colors in save mode, enhanced chalkboard graphics, faster load times, new graphics in play mode, a new loading icon, and a new app icon. The overall design and function of this app is great, but I felt like it deserved an update to enhance the look of it in certain areas. When I first developed this app I targeted phones but it should have initially been designed with tablets in mind, which means higher resolution graphics, and that’s part of what I accomplished with this update.
  • I also worked on the numbers game that I’ve mentioned in previous posts. A few months ago I thought I would have been near completion or totally finished with this app, but I haven’t been staying up late working on apps like I used to. Lately for this app I’ve been squeezing development time into bite size chunks throughout a couple of days each week. However, there has been a lot of progress made on this app and I think it will be ready for release in the coming months.

Earlier this year I made a rough overestimated schedule of my app releases for this year and the first half of next year. I’ll be revisiting this list soon and rearranging it to a more realistic schedule so I won’t be so hard on myself as the months go by. Regardless or not of how many or which apps will be released within that time frame I know one thing is for sure….all of them will be unique and awesome. Until next time ∞
