With Easie it is easy to make great selfies!

Recently I wrote that I will start making some experiments with iOS SDK and release simple apps as a results of those experiments. Easie is the first such app.

Easie lets you use face detection on your iOS device to make better selfies!

Just tap to activate face detection and make awesome selfies with your back camera!
Get vibration and flash feedback as it counts down to the photo-taking moment and post the best selfies ever!

With Easie, it only takes seconds to post a perfect serfie! 🙂

If you have any suggestions and feedback for the app, feel free to write it! 😉

Emoji in app display name

Today I saw on twitter that Dong Nguyen released his new game Swing Copters 2 and when it downloaded on my iPhone I saw this:

emoji in display name

App display name is the name that shows under app icon on your home screen. I did not see any app do this until this one.

I was wondering if I could just put emoji in “Bundle display name” info.plist of some project in Xcode and if it would work. And what do you know, it worked! 🙂

It will be fun to see how will people use this cool “hack”. 🙂

Make simple and useful mobile apps

When I look at my iPhone and list of apps that I use, list of apps that I most frequently use, the thing I see is that they are all simple apps that make one thing great. I don’t want to spend much time on my iPhone working on/with apps, I want to take it and in short amount of time get things done.

Clear is great example of simple app that helps you make things done.

Most of apps that I made, in about 5 years that I have been making iOS apps, are simple apps with focus on one thing, one useful feature.

That is why I decided to (part inspired by https://medium.com/@stuartkhall/how-i-got-2-3m-app-downloads-without-spending-a-cent-on-marketing-f4823b6bc779) experiment a bit with iOS SDK and make few simple but useful apps in upcoming months. I really like playing with iOS and iOS SDK in my free time and I see this as a great chance to experiment with it and maybe make a hit app. 🙂

Some of the books that I really like and had a lot of influence lately on me, on my view on development and business are Rework and Getting Real by guys from 37signals (now just Basecamp). I recommend them to all of you, they are easy and fast to read and give you instant benefits especially when you are small or one man team trying to make something (they are also useful in other cases).
