Coming soon: Countdone for iOS

Posted on 21 February 2013

Just before Christmas I had one of those moments where you wake up in the middle of the night and you have an idea for an app. I’d always assumed that these moments were mere myths, but there I was, experiencing one for myself. I went back to sleep and when I got up in the morning, I fired up Photoshop and started mocking up what I’d seen in my head. Later that day I asked Sarah for an iOS developer recommendation and just a few days later the app build was underway.

Fast-forward to now and my very first iPhone / iPod Touch app is almost complete. The last few bugs are being ironed out. I’m putting together the last few assets. Soon — very soon — we ( Viewport Industries) will be submitting it to the App Store.

So I thought it was time for a sneak peek: a genuine photo of the app running on my iPod Touch. Say hello to Countdone for iOS!

And that’s all I’m going to give away for now. If you’d like to be the first to hear about the app’s release, simply sign up to the Viewport Industries newsletter!
