What’s That Flag?
Make it Moo?
About ten years ago I decided I needed a new hobby and set out to teach myself Objective-C so I could build Mac and iPhone apps. It didn’t go well at first but the release of Swift started to change things – it was so much more intuitive.
Then in 2017, after Swift went through multiple changes and revisions I released my first app to the App Store. It was an incredibly simple tap counter game – but for me it was a big achievement.
I published dozens of apps and games, some produced in Unity and C#, some native Swift apps. I even built a couple of apps for Android using Kotlin. None had any major success but people downloaded them – something I made as part of a hobby was being played.
Most got removed as I never kept them updated as the App Store, iOS and Swift changed but some remained – including that first simple app.
I also kept up with the latest in Swift, then learning SwiftUI when it was released. As part of building my new Coffee Scribe app (out now for iOS and macOS), I have decided to update some of those older apps.
Modern SwiftUI makes it so easy. It’s only marginally more complex than building a website in HTML. I built a new DiceShaker app in two nights – less than 10 hours. And a simple soundboard with animal sounds in about an hour.
