Mobile App Development Journey


It has been a long time since my last blog post. I am truly sorry for that it has been a crazy and hectic year.  However, even tho it has been a very slow process for me. I stayed the course and continued to learn and study my swift programming skills.  I must admit that I am far from being an expert, but I have progressed nicely. I feel comfortable in taking my knowledge to the next step into mobile app development as I continue to perfect my skills.

One accomplishment I had since my last blog post was to submit an iMessage application Express Yourself Stickers into the Apple store you can find it here and download it for free. iTunes

In starting my mobile application I decided to document my journey on my blog. Which will keep me accountable of pushing forward and hopefully bring inspiration and knowledge to other new mobile developers looking to get started in mobile development. Also, I would love feedback from my readers who use similar apps or features they would be interested in since this is a work in progress.

So here I am,  the application I am looking to develop will be a productivity app to help users stay focus concentrating on task using the Pomodoro Time technique.  The app is at idea stages so we are starting from scratch.  I am currently working on listing application features and design. I will post later my progress with design and features hopefully to get some feedback. 🙂

I have been reading a lot on Scrum management which I am going to try to apply in my project. But it will be difficult since I don’t have a team. I have also read that it can be applied to a one party team. So I will try it. Any feedback if anyone has used Scrum for one. I would love to hear what your experiences were.

I will also be using Trello to document and keep track of my progress so far I am liking the software very easy to use and once I do have a team we can collaborate. My next post will not be until after the holidays. I wish you all Happy Holidays and a Happy and Healthy New Year.






Swift Programming language 

Three months in and nearing the end on my course on Swift2 Apples programming language. I have learned alot and have been putting my skills to work.  Udemy has been my main learning avenue so many great courses and instructors. Keeping up with the latest technologies and real mobile app projects. The iOS 9, Swift 2, and Xcode 7 – Apple Mobile App Development, on @udemy.


On my journey to building my business.  I’ve completed prototyping my first app which is near completion just testing and getting the kinks and bugs out of it before I submitt into the Apple store. I have learned the importance of research and knowing your market. One application I highly recommend for prototyping is Marvel its free app and it brings your app to life. Great way to getting your app in a few hands to test the flow of the app before you start coding it.

In a future post I will go through the process I have learned to get your app idea from idea to submitted. I have learned so much from good mentors and people in the industry. I thank them for the knowledge they have given me.

Have a great weekend and I will leave you with this Quote “We all have a dream for our lives. Even when times get rough, gain strength from what you’ve endured and persevere onward knowing that one day you’ll get there!”
