I post a progress report showing what I did and how my products performed each month. Last month’s report can be seen here.

After my record month in June, July was another record month where I made over 100€ with my apps!. Now I just need to 10x it.

Platform Growth


Website traffic was mostly stable again. I released only one new blog post at the end of the month, the CodePush CheatSheet.

Website Traffic


My twitter followers stayed the same at 162, some people unsubscribed, some subscribed. 🤔
I have to work on this by being more active on my blog again.

What’s next

I implemented CodePush this month into the new app I’m working on, and it’s really awesome. Especially for people like me that like to add new features, but don’t want to go through the whole AppStore release process every time and instead end up just not implementing small features. I’ll write more about it once I release the app. The frontend is mostly done, my plan is now to move the backend to a serverless architecture.
