During the process of making Soundproof, we had to consider what the business model would be. I wrote some early thoughts about pricing and talked about some issues with implementing upgrade pricing with In-App Purchases previously. Here, we’ll take a brief look at the experience of implementing In-App Purchases and the user experience.
Some background: the first release of our music practice app Soundproof was “Waiting for Review” in the last week of September when my iPhone 6 arrived. I ran the app on the iPhone 6 and of course got the stretched up iPhone 5 UI. It was OK, but a bit “Duplo” shall we say. Also our very subtle background gradient was being stretched. Nobody else would notice but… there is pride to consider.
Many people are writing off some of the WATCH features that were demonstrated as pure novelties. I think this is a mistake, if understandable given that these are rather new concepts.
