We’re Open for Business

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

This is it.

We’re opening our doors to those who would like to use our skills and expertise to create great iOS apps. We’ve decided to take all that we know and have learned, with all our experience designing and developing iOS apps, to help you. Developers and entrepreneurs contact us regularly, asking for help and advice. And now we are offering our services. We think it’s going to be big.

As you can see, we’ve made a few changes to our website. We’ve added a top bar, which navigates to our new pages. Through this bar you can access our Tapity Services website (more on these services below). We’ve also added a detailed “about” page. We’ve put together all of our experience and learning into a single resource, called our “secret sauce”; the sauce can be accessed from the side-bar or from the top bar (under “process”).

Our secret sauce (I like to call it “sky sauce”) is everything we’ve learned about iOS marketing and development condensed into potent form. The many app development resources online (some of which Jeremy has written) are scattered and diffuse. Our sauce brings it all together for anyone to see. We hope for lots of feedback and to continue refining the sauce.

The sauce is available for free, as a service to anyone who’s interested. We also are offering the meat to put the sauce on for a price. Starting now, we will be offering the following services to entrepreneurs, developers, and businesses:

1. App Project Evaluation: for a fixed rate we can do a thorough run-down on your app idea or project and then spend an hour giving detailed feedback and analysis. This evaluation can cover strategy, design, feasibility, monetization, and marketing. We can point out weaknesses and areas for improvement, and save businesses from pit-falls down the road.

2. Consulting: In addition, we can offer advice for clients on a variety of topics, from strategy, to design, to marketing and so on. We can play an advisory role on projects, helping you steer the app in the direction of meeting users’ goals and your business goals as well.

3. Design and Development: Got an idea? We can design your app for you. We focus on user experience design, which encompasses interface design, information design, and visual design. And we can help you create an app that meets user goals and is absolutely delightful.

4. Co-branded Tapity Projects: We’ve built a power-house brand, with products that have been featured prominently in some of the most coveted spaces of the App Store(“New and Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot”). Apple loves us and loves what we do. And we have numerous connections with the media, as well as movers and shakers in the industry. Thus we can work with you to develop a co-branded Tapity product, to take full advantage of our brand and ensure success for your app.

Right now our team is comprised of Jeremy Olson, Josh Olson, and Todd Olson. We plan to grow the company and are looking for great talent. If you’ve got the right stuff (or think you do), we’d love to talk to you about working for Tapity.

So, how can we help you?

The App Making Branch Community

You may have noticed I’ve been talking a lot about

App Making is here

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014


There has been a lot of talk about the fall of indies. I don’t buy it. I think if we learn from each other, we can not only survive but thrive on the App Store. That is why I spent a bunch of time putting together everything I’ve learned from the past five years into a comprehensive guide to launching successful apps.

I call it App Making and I am super excited to announce that it is finally available today:

All three packages are 25% off for 48 hours so grab your copy now.

The preview covers the foundation of a successful app: the idea. It also talks about how you can think outside the box to find a business model that may work better than the dying 99 cent model. I would love to get your feedback on the preview to help me make the final course better.

Tapity is open for business

Check out the new

This is a big announcement for us.

Over the past few years we have been struggling with what we want Tapity to be.

We have done a bit of client work here and there to support the development of apps like Grades, Languages, and Hours but we never really embraced services as a core part of our business. You wouldn’t know from our website that we did client work at all!

After a lot of thought, we have decided to stop fighting it and embrace who we are. Tapity is:

1. An indie app company

We have set out to build not just great apps, but great app-based businesses. We have made tremendous progress with Hours and we hope that we can turn it into a very significant business over the next few years.

2. A boutique app consultancy

In the past, we have hesitated to fully embrace and build up a client business because we were afraid that it could distract us from our own products. But our experience has taught us that our client business and our product business actually complement each other. Crafting our own products gives us a unique depth of understanding that we bring to our clients. Doing client work gives us a breadth of experience that helps us make better products.

Client work gives us the opportunity to work with the most innovative entrepreneurs and companies on the planet to build apps that we could not have built on our own.

3. A teaching company

We are super passionate about teaching. We’ve written articles and books and we are about to release a brand new App Making online course. Making apps is hard, so we want to do our part to share what we’ve learned.

Will Hours and the other apps go away? No way! We are working to grow our team to where they will move forward faster than ever, and that is the whole point.

Is pushing both our own apps and client work hard? Yes, but we’ve had some success doing it already and we will be working with some incredible people to help us take it to the next level.

So, bottom line? We are open for business. Check out the new and please get in touch if you or anyone you know would like to work with us to build some amazing apps.
