I’m wrapping up a web project for a client. Usually I’m a bit annoyed when freelance work comes while I’m wrapping up and trying to ship my own app. This time it was a nice to take a break from code I was working on for months. Now back on last bits of Vorto…

Watch Case on a Mac

I’ve spent the last few hours trying to run Watch Case as a Catalyst app on my Mac. I’ve hit a few bumps and well… it requires some work, but at least it compiles and runs relatively well.

I removed Vorto from the App Store for now. It will be coming back very soon and it will be integrated with everything I was working on over the last year or so.

Busy busy busy

Summer isn’t the best time to write code. You know… nice weather, long days, friends asking you to do stuff…. However, with a help of a few friends, I’m really close to wrapping up the biggest project I’ve ever worked on. I’m super excited and I will be sharing more really soon…

Sometimes one short message offsets all the long nights spent on writing code. I got a nice email from someone who uses my Watch Case app with a collection of more than 45 pieces. It made my day…😁💥

I sometimes wonder why in general people didn’t have any issues buying music albums for more than $10 but think that $3 for an app is a “steep pricing”. Also… those apps are run on a $1000+ devices…. What Apple did to the whole market is astonishing….
