The Death of "Show Time"

showTime1_2

 

So I’ve finally decided to take Show Time off the App Store. I in all honesty haven’t been paying much attention to it. I checked the sales of it recently to see how it was going and it’s been bringing me about $50 give or take each month. So no big deal to kill it but sad to see it go.

So why am I killing it? Because it’s broken. iOS5 caused it to not load clock colors and choosing your ambient noise crashes the App and boots you out. I read a couple reviews about it, tested it, and I’m reluctantly pulling it because it is both making me look really bad and also that’s just bad karma to be selling a poor product. So while it’s my baby, it’s gotta die. Keeping the lite version though cause it’s free so… whatever! I’ll actually pull the lite version too when I finally release my upcoming game.

My upcoming game is coming along! This blog has taken a long back seat to my working on the game’s assets. I can’t wait to show it to the world but it’s still early in development. I’m very happy with the progress so far and the overall look. It’s going to be a big one. Hopefully have a first look coming here at the end of this month.

UPDATE:

I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t kill it. I made it free.

 

UPDATE 2:

Ok… It’s dead. After making it free, it got super popular. Tons of downloads because it was featured on all these “Now Free” App blogs. Tons of complaints. Actually, more like a shit ton. When I released the App originally, I got less general emails than when I switched it to free. All complaints about how shitty it was or why can’t I fix it. It’s free people. I’m sorry! It brought down my “brand” so I removed it completely. Regretfully. I will just have to make something better…
