I've just realised that I've been developing iPhone apps for over five years. Trunk Notes, released 21st January 2009, is still on sale and being developed. I hope to rejuvenate my first ever app - Go Calc (initially called Go Figure) - soon with an update to iOS 7.

This is the game we developed for the +One Result Ltd hack day. iOS 7 + Sprite Kit = quite a nice development experience.

Would have been nice to develop it for Android and have it out the same day, however I can't see how we could have done so without using something like Corona.

Fascinating overview of the current state of using Python to write Android apps. Unfortunate that the answer is that more work needs to be done before it is a feasible choice of language for most projects.

If I do finally get a releasable version of Trunk Notes for Android finished it will be Android 4.0 and above only.

Stop "Sherlocking" Yourself
http://carpeaqua.com/2013/10/08/stop-sherlocking-yourself/

Some good advice for those people looking to 'get themselves an app' .

I think I'm going to give up with using fragments for this app. There are 24 activities, each inheriting from a multitude of base activity classes with composite classes thrown into the mix. I look forward to using NavigationDrawer properly when I implement the next app from scratch.

Converting most of the activities in quite a large app into fragments. This isn't fun.
