Part III: 2010-Present
Here’s the third chapter of our series of 4 blog posts about our 5 years on the App Store. You can also read about Part I and Part II.
Screens 1 and 2
Released: December, 2010
Currencies for Mac
Released: Spring, 2011
Screens for Mac
Released: July, 2011
The app was released on the same day a OS X 10.7. This allowed for Screens to be largely promoted by Apple, being one of the first apps to support Lion.
Screens for Mac 2 was release around the same time as Screens for iOS 2 and offered many new features, including iCloud support.
We’ll be releasing Screens for Mac 3 in 2014 and we will tell you more about it early next year!
Released: September 18, 2013
Released the same day as iOS 7 (see a pattern here?), Screens 3 was fortunate enough to be featured by Apple quite a bit and got rave reviews from many web publications.
Screens was rebuilt from scratch twice. Yes, twice!
The rewrite began in mid-2012 but the direction we were taking was flawed from the start so we took a big breath, thought things through once more and made sure we were taking the right approach with the new version.
Since there were many rumours regarding iOS 7, we decided to wait until WWDC’13 in June to see what were Apple’s plans and concentrated our efforts on Screens’ internals instead.
It was a lot of work throughout the summer in order to be able to release the app for iOS 7’s launch but it did pay off.
Now that many of our apps were either removed from sale or sold to another software company, we have an amazing opportunity to make some changes at Edovia in the coming year.
