I'm an iOS and web programmer living in Barcelona, Spain.
The most recent episode of Merge Conflict couldn’t be more relevant for me right now. I’ve spent so much time thinking whether I should make Watch Case free, monetize it through in-app purchases, subscriptions or just a one time up-front payment.
I’m still not entirely sure what will be the monetization model I will end up with, but I agree with Frank… chopping up the app and restricting access to the features I’m proud off feels dirty.
Over the last week or so I had a small group of brave friends who downloaded Watch Case and were kind enough to send me feedback. Thank you!
Now, a week later I think the app is ready for the next step and you can find it here.
I keep track of all of the changes I made since the app is available on Test Flight and you can find it here or read about the upcoming release on https://watchcase.app.

It took me some time to work on but it is finally ready. Watch Case has a new landing page that describes all of the main features of the app.
The download links are still dead… but I’m hoping to turn on test flight as soon as the app goes through an approval process.
Happy New Year everyone! I’m glad 2020 is finally over. Now, lets work towards better 2021! Over the last few weeks my main focus was to bring Watch Case to the App Store.
