My First iPhone App – pSimon


Well I’ve been busy since my last blog post working on my final project(more on this coming in separate posts) and other personal projects.  Anyways it’s been a while since I started learning iPhone development and last December I released my first app pSimon for sale on the iTunes Store.  pSimon is a modern implementation of the classic “Simon Says” game that was popular in the 80s.  On March 4, 2010 I released a Lite version of pSimon Lite which only included the easiest level of the game and some ads.  I released the Lite version to see if I could make extra income with the ads.  While I’ve made more income from the paid app up to this point, I have to say that I saw an explosion of downloads for the Lite version the first week that I would have not imagined.  I will keep this in mind for the release of the other two apps I’m working on right now.  It seems like a good marketing strategy is to release a Lite and Full version at the same time and the Lite version will drive sales for the Full version.

If you enjoyed playing the “Simon Says” game back in the day, try pSimon Lite and leave feedback as I’m constantly trying to find ways to make the game more challenging.
