Addressing dAmnMobile 2 IssuesAddressing the dAmnMobile 2 Issues
This is a quick journal to let everyone know what is currently happening with dAmnMobile 2 and it's issues.
dAmnMobile 2 is currently not functioning as expected due to the latest update I sent out so I have removed it from sale within the App Store for now.
At this stage, I do not know when I will be able to find time to fix these issues or alternatively finish dAmnMobile 3. I am hoping I will be able to shortly but we will see.
I am sorry for these issues that have happened and I will post another journal when I have more information to share.
New AdditionBy now, some of you may have noticed the newest addition to my username...
I've accepted a position with the %dt team but I'll leave it up to you to figure out what I'm working on.
It's a really awesome opportunity, one that I'm absolutely thankful for. Having the chance to improve a product and site that I use daily and enjoy so much is such a hard thing to find.
Farewell to dA MessagesdA Messages was the first real Message Center client for a mobile device. It was a great app when it first launched in January last year but since then, everything in the realm of iOS apps has changed and my skills have dramatically improved as a developer.
While it saddens me to do this, it has now come time for dA Messages to be discontinued as an app and no longer be supported into the future. dA Messages had become unwieldy to update both due to my own skill level when I originally developed it along with how it interfaces with deviantART. dA Messages is also no longer needed due to the fact that deviantART now has an updated mobile website.
I have removed dA Messages from the store as of today, but if you previously purchased dA Messages, it will continue to work into the future until such a time comes that deviantART changes how the Message Centre functions.
Thank you for your support with dA Messages from when it first launched up until now, it has been greatly apprec
My Apps and iOS7My Apps & iOS7
With iOS7 out now I'd thought that I should address my apps and what is happening to them on iOS7.
dAmnMobile is being rewritten to be a brand new iOS7 only app, starting with the iPhone version and eventually becoming a universal app. This is being worked on currently and is slowly coming along between my other work. It will be launched when I am happy with it, until then dAmnMobile 2 will work as expected.
Currently I have no plans to update dA Messages to be iOS7. This is mostly due to a lack of time to do so. If I can convert it to be 7 only in a short amount of time, I may do so, keep an eye on it.
This app will not be updated other than for bug fixes. This is due to a few reasons including the fact that the sheer amount of users it has are adverse to any change I make. It works, and they are happy it seems.
Thoughts on iOS7 and the new iPhonesThoughts on iOS7 and the new iPhones
After Apple's announcements yesterday, I've been thinking about what these new devices mean for both myself as a developer and others as consumers.
The iPhone 5c brings a new device to the market, which yes, is based upon last year's hardware, but will the regular consumer notice or care? Most likely not. Apple has just made this tier much more marketable and appealing to consumers as for a consumer what looks new must be new.This is a move by Apple to make the iPhone into a brand with two parts like the Macbook line with it's Air and Pro lines.
As a developer, this means the potential consumer market to sell apps within just exploded with this new device. I predict it will quickly become the best selling device in the iPhone line due to it's consumer appeal, after all who wouldn't want a cheaper, coloured iPhone.
The 5s is a remarkably easy product for Apple to market. Si

I Create Products Not CodeI Create Products Not Code
"What do you do for a job"?
That dreaded question. That question that is hard to answer. The question I attempt to avoid at any cost, simply due to that fact that I do not have a clear answer.
What do I really do as my job? It's really not as clear cut as you would be lead to believe. I don't solely program, I form products from the vision of others or myself. I take conversations from others, and form their concept into a product ready for their use.
For the majority of the products that I am involved with through Sunya, I am the sole developer, design and manager for the complete project. Other than conversations held with the client to help shape the product correctly according to their vision, I make majority of the decisions to form a product that I can take pride in along with the client.
I create apps which is simply not just p

Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S
