The Last Two Years
On the 1st of April, it will have been two years since I launched my first app on the iOS App Store, dAmnMobile 1.0, so I thought it'd be interesting to do a walk through memory lane of what has happened in the short period of those two years.
What Happened In Those Years
dAmnMobile 1.0 launched on the 1st of April 2011. It was the first mobile client for dAmn. It brought a simple user interface with superdAmn built natively in. It wasn't great, but it was a start.
Three days after launch, dAmnMobile 1.0 received a Daily Deviation thanks to ~Thorero and `Lilyas. This helped with getting the attention the app needed for success.
The iPhone version of dAmnMobile 2 came first on September 2nd, 2011 with the iPad version releasing shortly after on the 27th. As part of the launch, I charged $0.99 for the app, then after a week or two, pricing was moved to where it remains today at $1.99.
Next up in my product development sights was a Message Center app for dA. Initially I thought this would be simple, in reality, I couldn't be more wrong. One word, DiFi, DiFi is hell. But I trudged through this hell and out came dA Messages, a simplistic Message Center client for dA. It launched on the 13th of January of 2012.
In July 2012, Sunya, my mobile application development company was born. The story behind Sunya is actually amusing. We had a local tech expo coming up and the organisers had a spot free that they couldn't fill. I had been talking to one of the main organisers via Twitter about TechEx and other topics and they asked if I wanted to have the booth. This was all three days before the expo started. Sunya was created in those three days before the expo, and we showed our work to local companies and community members. I've been working full time at Sunya since then.
After I came back from Cocoa Camp, I began work on my next app, Stash. Designed by $Ikue, it was a full Sta.sh client utilising the new API's that deviantART provided to retrieve your Sta.sh. Stash launched in December 2012 on the 12th (And yes, I just noticed that it was launched on the 12/12/12 now ). Within a few hours of it's launch I received a Daily Deviation on it which I have to thank ^ladygagz and ^princepal for.
