I currently have around thirteen or so applications developed for iOS that are live in the App Store (and one in development). I have one Mac application (and one in development). I also run an online accounting system, two T-Shirt stores, a postcard printing and shipping business, and a web hosting and technical website build business.
That's a lot of stuff for one guy to maintain. Because of the amount of time I have available to dedicate to each, it can be a long time before I get to maintain or market any particular application or service that I've developed. Because of this, the services don't change often, they underperform in the marketplace, and over time the revenues have been decreasing.
With the move to Melbourne, we (my wife and I) decided that I'd be concentrating more on what I really enjoy doing. There are essentially two things that fit into this category.
To be able to concentrate on this, I've decided that it's time for some housekeeping. I'll be shutting the doors on some of the applications and services that I maintain. We'll be saying bye to:
I'll be concentrating more on:
The other applications I've released will remain as is. It's unlikely there will be any updates to them, and when they break with a new iOS release, I'll probably pull them from sale.
With the decreased maintenance overhead, I'll hopefully have more time to dedicate to updating and marketing the applications I've developed. I need to curate a portfolio of quality applications.
If anyone is interested in purchasing the code for any of the applications that are being retired or no longer updated just let me know.
