View Full Version : announcing new app: a children's story

May 15, 2008, 09:28 PM
hello, all,

i've gotten a lot of help from this forum since my life with mac began in late march (my first one!). i want to share with you an app that i will launch when the apple app store goes live, called "Shadows Never Sleep." it uses the language of a children's story to explore how an iphone can be used for new literature. i hope you enjoy it, see a demo here:

Shadows Never Sleep (http://www.technekai.com/shadow/shadow.html)

i created the visuals, text, and interaction; Nick Dalton (http://www.iphoneincubator.com/) (whom i found through elance.com) programmed the app. i recommend him highly for anyone wishing to outsource some objective-c development.

all best,

just wanted to follow up and say that the app, Shadows Never Sleep, has launched for real on the iTunes App Store (http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=284933211&mt=8).

at first it was miscategorized under "entertainment" and i got some awful reviews from people who were probably expecting something more game-like and less arty. but as soon as the app was correctly filed under "books" i think it hit a more appropriate audience and reviews improved.

i know it's not perfect, and i should have included more detailed usage instructions, but hey - it's my first app. it's still cute. next time i'll do better!
