accompanying material for the app

While I love to plan things, put ideas on paper, dream about all the things I could realize, I am never sure about what’s important and what’s not.

Namely, should I have a website? If so, should it be simple, with a few informations about my app and me? Offer technical support? Should it be more complex, with tutorials about using my app, material for the press in case I get a review?

While writing this down, I get more and more convinced that all the answers are yes. And it should be live before / at the same time my app is released on the App Store. But it circles me back on my previous post: I never made a web site before, so I think I should go learn first…

Am I skilled for that?

Knowing… Scratch that. Thinking that you’re not skilled for something definitly helps me procrastinate.

So far I’ve got a few CoreData entities, and the very start of a storyboard. And this is the moment when “I have other things to do”. I mean, I really do have other things to do, but I also have this goal I fixed for myself…

I know I am capable of doing creating this app, I know I do. I am skilled for that. But I actually never worked with storyboard before, and I am not pro enough to dwelve into it without some “learning mistakes”. And my first reflex is to go learn how to do it before actually doing it. Which takes time. Time that I won’t spend coding my app…

Let’s get this started

Last April, I turned 30. For many (irrelevant) reasons, it freaked me out. One thing I did was to set myself two goals I wanted to achieve before I’d turn 31. The first one was to run a marathon. So I trained and I was actually ready to run the full marathon but I got a laryngitis 4 days prior to the race… I got the the 31st km (19th mile), and left the race frozen, tired and with a big headache.
My second goal was to create an iPhone app and sell it on the App Store.
And this is the story of its creation…
