Any advice for other local iPhone developers?

For anyone keen to make a living out of iPhone apps, it’s important to think about marketing even before the app is ready. Making a great app alone won’t get you anywhere if you can’t get anyone to be interested in them. For me I really just got lucky that John decided to try out my app and liked it enough to write about it.

It is not just Apple, everyone has moved its support functions (phone sales, phone support, technical support) to remote locations (India, Philippines, …) where people, computers, telecoms are cheaper.

We do get what we pay for.

The Apple supervisor had to then use the same chat system to “talk” to a technical rep, located who knows where, that I was originally supposed to use to begin with. The fix took an hour and twenty minutes of me talking by cell phone to a stranger who was communicating by text to a third party that he couldn’t speak to either. This was the point when it hit me that we’d moved from Kafka to Orwell.

Actually pretty much sums up my stand on Singapore TV.

I didn’t watch the National Day Rally speech on TV. Well, actually, I don’t watch local TV, period. Local TV infuriates me, especially when it’s a local politician talking-head.
