Edgewise FREE

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

I made a free version of Edgewise for the iPhone. It hit the app store yesterday.

It’s just like the paid version except it bugs you to buy the game if you really like it. I thought about making the free one be ad supported, but I decided to wait. I may change my mind after I learn more about the various mobile ad platforms. Or after Apple’s announced ad service goes live.

Since I wanted the free version and the paid version to be mostly alike I used the same Xcode project and sources and added a new build target. It was even easier than I imagined it would be.

I have a couple of ideas for how to improve the game play that I may release soon. All improvements from now on can easily be shared between the free and paid versions, which is kind of cool.

New Edgewise

Friday, August 14th, 2009

I updated the iPhone version of Edgewise to 1.2 last week. It’s a small change. I added some pretty face card pictures.

I’ve been working on a couple of other projects recently, but I kind of sputtered and stalled on them a little while ago. I decided to update Edgewise as a way to make progress on something.

Sales have picked up a bit because of the higher placement in the app’s categories on the app store. A whole bunch of people have updated. I’m not sure if that means people are still playing it or if they just haven’t deleted it from their app list in iTunes. Mostly the latter I suspect. Web site traffic and downloads of my other stuff have picked up some, too. Might as well use some of that unlimited download bandwidth Dreamhost provides, right?
