10+ apps you need when travelling the world

Since I’m lucky enough to work for one of the best companies in the country, I got the chance to take a five month sabbatical at the beginning of this year in order to broaden my horizons. As the course I was most interested in was a correspondence course I could take from anywhere in the world, I decided to take advantage of this and to combine my professional development with my personal one.

How do I get more app downloads? With App Store Optimisation!

Many developers know the prolem. You invest a lot of time and energy in your app and you want to make many people happy with it or help them in some way. Giddily, you publish it in the app stores and you can’t wait for those downloads to explode. However, shortly after that, there’s the seemingly  inevitable disillusionment: the download figures are stagnating at about 50 and nothing much is happening. If you’re financially dependent on your apps, that is an actual problem. Time for ASO – app store optimization!
