A lot of people have been asking me how Grades has been going. My answer so far has been “pretty good for an indy app.” I didn’t want to give any hard numbers until I have more data. I was also waiting for last night because my final card had not yet been played.
Now it has. Apple noticed.
I have been obsessing over ways to get Apple’s attention. A big launch is part of it. Networking with employees on Twitter is another part. But I think the most important technique I found was to build respect in the iPhone developer community (via this blog and Twitter). I think this respect trickled down to Apple.
Grades has been blasting up the charts. At the time of writing Grades is #6 in Education. We’ll see if this is enough to break the top 100. I think it’s possible.
There is still a lot to learn and the journey has just begun but at this point I would like to thank all my friends and fellow developers for all that you have done to help me get to this point. Yeah!Tweet
