It’s been very quiet here. Life has once again conspired to get in the way of our goals and dreams. My full time job has been keeping me busy at 70 hours a week. As much as I wanted to work on my iPhone project, I do enjoy what I do for a living, and one of my long term goals in life is to foster my career. Actually, allow me to impart some wisdom in light of the current economic crisis. I actually believe that investing in your career and education is the best investment that you can make (and not in retirement accounts, though it’s a good idea). I recently had my midterm as well, so that also kept me away from working on our second application.
The schedule is starting to regain some semblance of sanity, so I will be able to devote more time to the iPhone project once again. The lack of time is only part of the reason for the delay, however. We decided to totally abandon the current design and go for something more innovative and creative. I’m not actually sure how well it will be received, but we noticed that there are too many of the same old and tired interface designs on thousands of applications. Though our application might be interesting, we felt that the interface design may hold us back. So a paradigm shift in our thinking and a total overhaul of the interface was required in order to stand out from the crowd.
Wish us luck!
