After spending January rewriting this website, going on holiday, and then working on Spacelunky, I came back to Quick Quote and realised that it’s not the most important thing I could be working on. It just plain doesn’t sell well enough. I’m not cancelling the 1.5 update for it, as I do think that resolving some of the issues it has will help sales, it probably won’t make enough of a difference to warrant more time spent on it.
So! What am I working on? It’s another Android app, specifically the one I alluded to back in August. Still keeping it under wraps for now, but development is going really well. Being able to start fresh after working on Quick Quote for so long is great, and I’ve been able to avoid a lot of the mistakes I made when developing that.
Feature creep has been a real problem for me in the past, so I’m focusing on the absolute minimum that the app needs to do, will get some people I know to test it, make any necessary changes, and then release. Only if it actually succeeds will I consider adding to it this time! Hopefully, as I have an actual target market, and I haven’t found any competitors, it has a good chance of succeeding.
