After experimenting with various apps I decided to venture into an educational language-earning app in the year around 2013/14. I developed three apps Mudrakshar for tracing Alphabets, Swarakshar for Pronouncing Alphabets and Chitrakshar for Alphabet Charts with Illustrations and audio pronunciation. All three apps were dedicated to Devanagari Script. Mainly Marathi, Sanskrit and Hindi Language. For Chitrakshar I added the English Language with Latin script.
I am developing my apps for Apple iOS, iPadOS and macOS platforms. Here is my Apple Developer Profile if you want to check it out.
I think the In-App purchase / StoreKit framework was not introduced back then that’s what I remember. So I used paid app business model to support my app development and time invested.
Maybe because I started sailing my apps with upfront pricing. I was forcing my user to purchase my apps without allowing them to try them before they buy. I was having very less downloads or sales. But over the years I sold almost 1,000 units of apps or more. I also utilised App Store Connects’s App Bundles feature at that time. App Bundles surely helped me to sell more apps with discounts.(more…)
