Woke up this morning to a pleasant surprise: my Apple iPhone App was approved overnight and is waiting for you to download free! [iTunes link]. There’s a couple of reasons I thought this was worth doing for me and for any microISV or startup who wants to reach out to the 40 million or so iPhone users:
- As good as HTML5 iPhone apps are (go to https://www.47hats.com on your mobile and you’ll see what I mean), they’re just not as good an experience as a native app. Click a post, it’s there. Click a podcast, it plays. Nice!
- Since I don’t code iPhone apps yet, going with AppMakr looked to make sense and at the price last week of $50 I was willing to give it a try.
- Like most of you reading this, my challenge isn’t creating worthwhile stuff, it’s getting known for creating worthwhile stuff. Anything that helps me reach my primary market of microISVs/startups is a Good Thing.
There’s only one Big Problem: 47Hats, the app, needs your love! Please download and rate it – I’d really appreciate it.
