My first iPhone App on the App Store! :-)

I haven’t had time to write here, but soon I’ll try to start writing a lot of stuff I had learned with this little project.

By now, I only wan’t to let you know what was the project I had wrote a little about in my second post.

The final App name is South Africa 2010 Soccer Scores and you can find it on the App Store:

You can also see some info and screen-shots on our App @ http://xphone.me/sa2010ss/.

Unfortunately, I had this idea only some days before the World Cup started!

Nonetheless you developed it then we submitted it to the App Store. After 8 days we were notified of a possible copyright issue with a part of the original name of our App!

In less than a day we changed its name, the splash and title images, etc… and submitted it again…after one week it was approved and published on the App Store.

Unfortunately, that day was July 9th, less than 3 days to the end of the 2010 World Cup! :-/

Well, but in the last 3 days we had more downloads than we imagined from a lot of different countries!! That’s a little good return because it boosts our motivation to the next projects, especially an evolution of that App! đŸ˜‰

And the work was worth it!! We got some experience and we learned a lot!!

Now we know what is to transform an Idea into a real App in the Apple App Store!

…and that is real a really nice feeling!! =:-)

Maybe on of this days I write a little post-morten about this App development.

I’d like to finish this post with kudos to AndrĂ©, he had done some really good logos/images for our App. And we had done a great team on this project. I’d also to thank to Eugen from Icon Drawer for letting us freely use his cute country flags

See you soon…

PS: If you try our App, please send us your comments & suggestions to “xphone.me@gmail.com“.

You have great ideas for mobile Apps? …but you don’t code?

You have great ideas for mobile Apps? You’d like to develop those ideas but don’t know how to program?

Now you can do it!!

Transform your ideas into real Apps for your Android phone, with Google App Inventor: http://appinventor.googlelabs.com.

I haven’t tried it yet but I think that for us, developers,it can be a very interesting tool because it allows us to sketch our Apps more faster. And it can be even better, if it allows us to take that sketch App code, and put it in the traditional pipeline, using Eclipse or other IDE to develop more advanced features.
