    One of the developers of the Halide camera app (iOS only) has a posted a detailed look at the app's first year. It includes notes on the app's development over the year, sales patterns (related to updates and other things), pricing changes, and more. It's pro-Halide, obviously, but an interesting look into the lives of apps and developers all the same.

    A few quotes:

    "Suddenly we had to had to act like a real business, as hundreds of support emails arrived in those first few days. Some were feature requests, some were bug reports, and a fair share were questions about how to use the app."

    "It’s an important reminder that when enough people run into a problem, it doesn’t matter who’s at fault. It’s ultimately your problem."

    "In our experiments, advertising on social media has been a waste of time and money."

    "Price changes have had no significant impact on profit."

    Interesting. I should really give this app more attention. Go out one day and use it to death to feel comfortable with it.
