Thank You

 I really appreciate all the interest from the #anchor community. Please if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

I noticed there's a great deal of interest in video applications. Please shoot me an email, Twitter, or Anchor.  

 Thanks

Podcasting

Recently I've been slowly using @anchor for #podcasting. I was going to use squarespace but the hosting is an issue & there is no Audio block for mobile iOS.  

Liquid courage

Well I figured out a solution. Let me explain. 

iOS apps - winners & losers.

 Hey, I'm here to share my experience in regards to winners & losers of the iOS dev app world. I will try to hold out benefit of the doubt for some of these applications. In these posts I will cover video, photo, writing, & audio iOS apps. We'll check out abandon applications & overt money grab devs. 

Let's dig on some video apps.  

Film backpage apps

Let's start w/ #isuper8 it had potential, although it took a half a day to render. I only purchased 1 emulation "pack" although it's a shame that it seems to have become abandoned iOS app. The UI & graphic design is tits.

 One can have their fingers crossed but once you see the rest of their portfolio -

It seems they utilized the earnings & moved on.  Just so you are informed it's not that difficult to find out how much a dev co has earned on a iOS app. 

 Let's move on-  

 

Kinomatic iOS app

 This has potential but well let's leave it at that. I do hope they dig deeper in the sandbox.

Look this is free & I thought it was a going to stay a gloss eyed floating sea bass in the harbor. I poked that sea bass and it began to swim with gusto. See, not all devs abandon. They just may be ahead of their time. I say down load. 

 

Cinecampro iOS app

 I know, I took a chance. It has potential but the UI is sloppy & the settings... Well fingers crossed that it's not hyping off of beast grip pro. I also want to just put this out there; if you click any app developer web page and it try's to take you to Facebook?

 The original, so many blatantly tried to boost this style. I know how much work went into this.  

Fast, cheap, easy. Pick any two. I look forward to further developments. Don't support imposters.

I've had this forever, I like how the devs aren't "pack" frenzied. Do one thing & do it well. 

I enjoy shooting with this app. Looking forward to a update.  

 So let me wrap this up-  

 I see many bait & switch jack offs monopolizing or circumventing the current iOS App Store yet on the other side of the coin Apple gets their pence so there isn't much oversight.  

 This concludes pt.1  

Catch ya later,  

Mick

Happy Easter

Happy Easter Sunday everyone, it's a beautiful day in paradise.

I haven't dyed Easter eggs in years although I do enjoy poached or boiled eggs.

Another pleasure I suggest is to convert your Easter eggs in Deviled eggs.

  • Repurpose dyed Easter egg.

  • Crack shell & remove firm egg.

    • Slice egg in half.
  • Remove yolk (you know the yellow part) remove gently.

    -Take yoke and mash, smash, with mayo.

  • Use spoon or small melon baller to replace whipped yoke back in the split portions of the egg.

    • Now sprinkle with Paprika.

    Enjoy your Deviled eggs on Easter!

 I'm on a monochromatic kick. I control the content. I'm not sure if you feel the lull in the industry but it sure looks like a bunch of folks suffering from "Future Shock"

 I am witnessing technology company's work both ends of the spectrum. Meaning they don't need to abide buy industry regulations  & they aren't obligated to supply ad companies statistical impressions. It's a little dubious but it is business & competition is healthy in a free market.

 This is the binary blitz. Seems on the surface everything is hunky dorky. Yet there is no transperancy & this is your choice. Adapt & learn the skill sets needed or work for "crowd sharing" company till your out modded.

Solidifying

 Currently working to quantify congruent concepts. Over all it could be said

 Isolating realistic client expectation with same day service. It's much easier when there's less miscommunication.

Facets

 Now it always seems that the most complex problem is easily solved by changing the way you look at it.

 Although if it's not the F.O.V. then it may just be a miscommunication. So don't become a emotional "cunt in pub" because no likes that. 

Cheers! 

 

Design

 Web design takes a structure. Development stage looks good to the client. It's much better than floundering in front of a monitor. YoU communicating the idea 2 a client simplifies the time. There's nO need to get heavy. So outline the website on paper.

Comedy

The funniest things happen. It began with just a business plan. Pen to paper then next then you know Ur is like a mist.
