Ten years ago, on June 10 2008 Apple started the AppStore. With only a few hundred apps in the beginning it’s amazing to see to what it has grown today. Fantastic indie careers have been kicked off thanks to the AppStore. Many new startups are only successful because of the power of the AppStore. On this historical day, I decided to tell my personal AppStore story. This is about how I started to develop apps with iRedstone:
Today I am publishing a new app on the AppStore: This time I combined two of my passions: My passion for climbing & bouldering and my passion for iOS development.
iRedpoint iRedpoint is a fitness tracker for bouldering and climbing that uses the built-in sensors form the Apple Watch. While I developed this app I discovered how amazing and well-thought watchOS and the actual Apple Watch hardware already are – providing computing power for real-time machine learning analysis of accelerometer and gyroscope samples, the heart rate and the barometer.
