On January 12 I hired Danil, a young iOS programmer from Russia, to build my first iPhone app.
Eighteen days later, after testing the final build on my iPhone 4S (it was a pain in the ass to set up the provisioning profile on my device by the way) my app was ready for submission to the app store.
So the 30th of January I uploaded the binary files, filled the app description, made some screenshots for the app preview on iTunes and clicked submit.
I wasn’t expecting it to be approved in less than 2 weeks.
Today, the 4th of February, I woke up to an email from iTunes Connect telling me that my app was now “ready for sale”.
“It took me only 23 days and a few hundred dollars to put up a free iPhone app on the App Store.”
Now, I’m waiting for it to be “live” so I can tell everyone to grab a copy and start writing some reviews.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
