My app failed and makes no cash

The extra we fail, the extra we develop and the extra data we acquire to extend our probability of future success.

So I had an thought as soon as. It was superior€, in my view. I believed it might be cool to create a gaming app the place you could possibly flick round icons from different standard apps. The problem can be protecting them from hitting the underside of the display and they’d fall down with gravity. That’€™s not it – we’d additionally use icons from among the hottest apps on the App Retailer, there can be energy ups and there can be distinctive bonus ranges all through the sport! That sounds nice doesn’€™t it? I believed so

To get this loopy little thought (€˜the subsequent Offended Birds€™ as I known as it) off the bottom, I spoke with a developer that I discovered after sifting via a sea of in all probability over 50 builders who didn’€™t wish to work with me on a profit-sharing foundation (that is one other story that I received’€™t get into). For those who’€™ve learn my article about persistence or my open letter to the Australian Pink Cross Blood Service, you in all probability know that I don’€™t stop very simply.

Throughout growth of the app, I went via the App Retailer and analysed 1000’s of app icons like an employment company searching for out particular expert staff (I couldn’€™t give you a greater simile). I should have checked out properly over 2,000 app icons and contacted about 100 app builders who had app icons that I preferred. Virtually all didn’€™t reply however I received about 25 responses and I finally received permission to make use of 18 icons from sort builders, together with the Temple Run developer.

After over 6 months and over 100 hours of growth, testing, talking up my app and discovering app icons to incorporate, Gravityicons was born.

I used to be so excited to launch “the subsequent Offended Birds”€™ and was so certain that it might achieve success. I had beforehand created, launched and marketed 3 apps that have been within the high 100 on the App Retailer and I anticipated this to be one other enormous hit.

I launched it! It failed! worse than I may have ever anticipated. In actual fact, it has made lower than $1,000 to this point. It failed so unhealthy that I’ve made it free and I really get about 30 downloads a day now.

Individuals normally prefer it and it will get 5 star evaluations however individuals received’€™t pay to obtain it. I ought to in all probability be wanting into a distinct income mannequin.

p.s. I ponder how many individuals are considering “so this man wrote an article about persistence and now he’s speaking about how he failed and he isn’€™t even attempting a distinct income mannequin with a product that his prospects like, he’s an fool”€.

My response: some issues are value pursuing like your life depends upon it and different issues aren’t, when your time might be utlised extra successfully in different actions. I really feel like my time is healthier spent in different areas as a substitute of attempting to revive an app that’s just about in it’s grave.

What do you suppose? Obtain Gravityicons without spending a dime from the App Retailer and please give it evaluate when you like my app or me. And no there isn’€™t an Android model, cease asking!
