What are you going to do next?

Ahhhh, you've got your app submitted, it's been accepted, or you are hoping it will be soon.  What will you do next?


As for myself, I'm going to take a little break, then continue adding features to my game for a future release.  Right now the gameplay is basically arcade where the only goal is points, but I plan to add a story and levels, for example.  Including multiple endings, depending on how many points you get.


After that, I have a few more app ideas kicking around that I may eventually get to, as long as life gives me some free moments to work on them.

Re: What are you going to do next?

My main priority will be improving my 2 applications by adding gestures that I can't test without a device. My second app, the Comic Reader (not yet in App World) will be enhanced once the File.browse() properly works with a FileFilter. I am still working on adding .cbr support to the comic reader as well.

Re: What are you going to do next?

I'm going to Disney Land! ... in this picture I drew.


I have quite a few features to put together for my app once the hardware arrives. In the meantime, my current desktop applications and a few web projects need attention. Once everything is settled, I plan to port colorbranch to Desktop and other platforms and devices along with customized interfaces for each.


There are a few other ideas running around in my head as well. For one, I've never created a game, so that could be interesting to plan and build.

Re: What are you going to do next?

Cleaning up my app.


The one I am trying to submit will be a free application,  but portions of it will be used for possibly two other applications that won't be free.  So, I need to add more functionality and clean it up so I can easily move that functionality into the other applications.

GPS location will probably be the first thing, t

Re: What are you going to do next?

I'll do another application, which will be available here, and when I see that it pays out I'll port it over to android market place and maaaaaybe to the den of evil, the app store.

Re: What are you going to do next?

Funny, I have been thinking about this. Right now lots of things are going in my mind...I wish i could capture it somewhere in a blog or may be some kind of journal/diary(that i can transfer into my PB ofcourse). Here are a few things going on in my mind:


  • Cleanup some of the apps and add new features.
  • I have an online art project in mind that would involve a community of people. I want to give a headstart and open it up for everyone to chip in.
  • There are a few things I'd like to research and design. Prototype a few ideas, mashups. 
  • Think about designing cross platform/cross product app and learning which technology and design elements is best suited for various things. I know its kind of vague..to give you an example there are so many javascript frameworks, one thing I want to understand is what can you do best with some of the key ones..kind of find the best tool for the job.
  • My son is about to enter 1st grade, some things are going on in my mind to put the PB to educational use for his daily worksheet...a reward based system would be nice that he can use to learn from, track progress and earn points for his toys Smiley Happy
  • Finally, fill my Taxes before the deadline..probably this should be topmost on my list ;-)

Re: What are you going to do next?

i've been wanting to make a game using the Flixel framework and probably work on porting this demo. I'm keeping pretty busy on other consulting projects though, so who knows when that will happen.

Re: What are you going to do next?

I've got a bit of work to go on my app still. I just released a free preview with a limited feature set for now since I didn't have time to do everything I wanted.


After that I think I may look into making a Subsonic client app.
