Happy new year!!!!

2012 will remain a special year for us at designX6. We were able to form a business entity, imagine, build, release a product in app store, and made a good progress on our second product, a recipe app. As I look back there are lots of memories and some I would like to share here.

  • Interesting conversions about HallowsThieves game – what the game should be, should we let users customize the game or not, what can we do to reward user for completing game, how should we explain game, graphics, and so on. What is good to know that within small team we have skills and know how to get things done once we decided what is the right thing to do.
  • Pricing – Yes it was about our first product but more so about what we believe as a pricing model. We decided to not follow “Freemium” model and or model which rely on say ads to make up for distributing product for free. Our goal is simple, build something useful and great and charge fair price for the same.
  • Paperwork – Amazing isn’t it? Rick thanks, you sure have more patience than I do to deal with different forms/paper required to have a business entity and access to Apple app store.
  • Recipe app – I am glad that we are not afraid of change :-). UI prototype has seen so many iterations that when I look back at old work, I wonder what were we thinking back then. Anyway I am excited about our goal for the app and prototypes we are working with in order to achieve the same. Change is good!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank team members, friends and family who tested our app, and of course folks who bought our app.
