As I’ve been insanely busy at my new job (converting iPad apps to Android apps), I’ve not had much time for feature improvements or bug fixes. Seeing how Easy Inventory is currently making me about 3 bucks a month in Adsense revenue, I see no financial harm in converting it to an

It can be a bit of a pain, but once you’ve got

Android Updates and I Claim The Crown.

Today is the first day of August. After two straight months of adding an app a day (A double software Jedi challenge), I’m switching my focus. I got some good advice from folks over at HN in response to a reply I made to an Android post, and some great improvement suggestions from my existing users. After mulling it all over, and looking at my app sales numbers I’ve come to the conclusion that writing an app a day, while certainly possible, is not
