Thoughts on mobile app development.

Where to next for PhotoCaddy

PhotoCaddy has far and away been one of the most popular applications I’ve worked on. In fact, it was the app that converted me from being a hobbyist into a full time iOS developer, something which is a bit of a rarity here in Sydney, Australia. As it turns out, PhotoCaddy’s one year birthday has just passed, yet it still continues to be regularly downloaded, and receives many great reviews every week.

Not much has changed in the app over the last 6 months or so, mainly because I’ve been working on other projects. There have been no major complaints and reviews are strong, which are good indications that the app is fairly complete. In fact, the major request was for an iPad version, which has now been filled by PhotoCaddy HD. The iPad version has only been out for a few weeks now, but it has already caught Apple’s attention and is also receiving great feedback. Bottom line – people love PhotoCaddy.

So what should we do next? Simply leave the app alone and move on to something else? That’s certainly been the status quo for the last few months. But one of the things that I believe in strongly is that when you purchase an application, you’re not just handing over your money – you’re investing in it’s future, as well.

Good news for all you iPhone users is that there’s a new version coming just as soon as Apple approves it. Featuring an improved interface, gorgeous iPhone4 retina graphics, and 3 new highly-requested categories, it’s a pretty nice update that should make a lot of people happy.

Which brings me to the end of the post with one simple question for you readers – what else would you like to see in future versions of PhotoCaddy?
