  • #194: In Review.

    4 September 2014, 8:57 am by: David

    Today I wanted to take a quick run through the App Review Guidelines. Love ‘em. Hate ‘em. They are one of the most core parts of creating and distributing apps for the App Store. I will give some high level thoughts about the state of App Review and…

    8 August 2014, 11:35 am by: David

    30 July 2014, 9:12 am by: David

    3 July 2014, 11:30 am by: David

    I will be on vacation for the next two weeks, so unless something monumental happens in between now and late July there won’t be any episodes of Developing Perspective.…
  • #189: In the Loop

    26 June 2014, 9:53 am by: David

    This past week we had a bit of drama about the role of podcast networks. I don’t intend to wade into that discussion but as a result of it I was asked about the role that linking and recommendations play in expanding my own audience for this show. Which is…

  • #185: Pick up your Kite.

    27 May 2014, 1:41 pm by: David

    11 April 2014, 10:57 am by: David

    I hope you fared better in the WWDC lottery than I did, though I’m hopeful for a possibility of a second round on Monday (maybe?). The system and process generally went really well and I think this is likely the process we’ll see going forward. It…

    27 February 2014, 10:27 am by: David

    This begins a multi-part series on how I think we could move the App Store forward. I had initially thought this could be a single show but quickly realized that it will take quite a few 15 minute conversations to really unpack what can practically be done to…
  • #174: A Livelihood

    12 February 2014, 9:17 am by: David

    15 January 2014, 9:40 am by: David
