Tapity is open for business

Check out the new Tapity.com

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 Tapity.com and please get in touch if you or anyone you know would like to work with us to build some amazing apps.

The Apple Watch’s greatest superpower

September 10th, 2014 Jeremy Jeremy

HoursAppleWatch
I just wrote an article on Medium about what I think is the Apple Watch’s greatest superpower.

At the bottom of that post we revealed Hours for Apple Watch, iteration #2 (see above). Check it out and let me know what you think.

Hours + Watch

September 9th, 2014 Jeremy Jeremy

Ever since we heard rumors about the Apple Watch, we knew it would be a game-changer for Hours.

To track time consistently, you need to be able to start, stop, and switch timers extremely quickly.

The original app does it’s best. One tap to start a timer, another tap to stop or switch.

Our iOS 8 widget is going to make it so that these actions are just a swipe away, even from the home screen.

The Watch takes this to a whole new level. It means you can switch timers without even taking your phone out of your pocket. Just glance at your wrist and tap. Boom.

We absolutely cannot wait to start time tracking on the Watch.

Welcome Ben to Tapity!

September 5th, 2014 Jeremy Jeremy

Ben

Wow, things are really hopping here at Tapity. Today we are excited to introduce our second full-time employee, the one and only Ben Samelak!

Ben has always loved design, which is why he graduated from Architecture school at UNC Charlotte. As fate would have it, Ben became a roommate to our other full-time employee, the “prominent designer” Christian Billings. It was Christian who introduced Ben to me, and helped convince him that maybe his love for design could be better used outside the architecture field. Ben decided to test the waters by interning with Tapity. Tired of the never ending limitations of building design, Ben was thrilled to discover a new level of creative freedom here at Tapity.

At Tapity, we love fast learners. In a period of six months Ben as managed to learn how to design and develop websites and help design apps. Now he is learning iOS development and is about to submit his first app. We already depend on him for many projects. We really appreciate his architecture school background, which gave him a great grounding in design thinking. We also love his curiosity in learning about every part of the design process from visual design to interaction problem solving.

Most importantly, Ben is a great friend. We are so happy to welcome him to our Tapity family.

Check out Ryktr, the latest app Ben was instrumental in designing for a client.

Ryktr

We have a few things we want to do before we make a huge buzz about Ryktr but the public beta hit the App Store today so if you love football, give Ryktr a spin on tonight’s games!
