Apple's Swift. Good timing for SarioDev Apps to adopt?

Apple announced their new programming language Swift to replace Objective C.
I was seeing some developers unhappy about this but to consider the situation for SarioDev Apps, one factor for no iOS apps as yet (among others) was learning objective C.
After reading the article released by The Next Web it got me thinking that this could be a great opportunity to bring 10Up or IN5 to the iPhone.

Perhaps it's good that I hadn't started development on iOS yet.
Anyone else have thoughts on Swift and Apples move to change?

As reported by The Next Web,
Here’s what developers think about Apple’s new Swift programming language

10Up set to come with 100 new levels on next update!

The next update for 10Up has promised to come with levels in response to many users who would like this mode. This mode will be focused on the puzzles itself and allow the users a more detailed and progressive experience. 

This will be very meaningful to new users to the game concept as they are coached with learning the game flow. Experienced users will enjoy tracking their progress and allowing focus on solving puzzles in a non-frantic manner. Here's a sneak peek of the main screen with Levels update. There could be 100 brand new levels for users to explore!

Is the levels mode a good idea? Comment and let us know!

Google Allows Paypal payments in Android Store

This is exciting news and both users and developers have been waiting for this to become available. After presentations at GDC this year it was obvious that Google did not want to be the bottle neck in the purchasing process for Play Store Apps. You may have seen many Play Store gift cards pop up in your local stores - I know I have and it's good to see the Paypal option becoming available. It is reported to be available in 12 Countries at this stage but it's a step in the right direction.

This should have a positive impact for all Play Store users and also for the developers, you can now try purchase one of our Apps!
10Up with in store purchases:
IN 5 Pro Version:

In any case this is great news for Play Store, Android users and SarioDev.
Are you in a country that has it enabled and if so have you used this service yet? Let us know!

SarioDev Goes Live !

SarioDev Apps Website goes live and this is the first post going up on the site. I'm really excited to get this off the ground and I just wanted to give SarioDev related posts its own space. So what do you think? Have you created your own app site?
Have a look around because I've included ways to contact, IN 5 dedicated page, 10Up dedicated page, and SarioDev store! (Get yourself a 10Up shirt)

So if you don't know much about SarioDev Apps, the focus is of the apps are in the productivity space and the games space. There are apps on the Windows Store and also on the Google Android Play Store, with plans to get into iPhone/iPad development too. Check out SarioDev Apps here.

All apps graphics, music, code, marketing and design are all done in house - which does make it tough but also gives a continuous voice throughout all aspects. I'm always scanning the App stores and monitoring the progress of all SarioDev apps particularly for feedback from users and striving to be as quick as possible to react to the input.

So if you're reading this I hope you have tried my apps and if you have don't be shy to give me feedback or constructive criticisms.

With that - that is the first of many blog posts where I will share development progress, how I've overcome issues both technical and business/marketing related and anything and everything related to our apps!

Here's to imagining, researching, designing, building and publishing your own ideas and dreams!
