    Hey guys,

    Let me start this thread that is slight different than others you saw on this forum..

    I've made new native (Objective-C) mobile app for IOS (apple market), on subject 21.12.2012 (end of the world).

    App has a list of bunkers,shelters,.. all over the world (100k locations - scraped with my custom PHP script from google maps) and latest News on that subject.. Also countdown is included

    My price on market is 0,99$ ...


    App link:
    h[t][t]ps://itunes.apple.com/us/app/shelter-finder/id583833266?ls=1&mt=8

    What I've done so far:
    - I've created app an posted it on istore..
    - Created facebook group called (Shelter Finder 21.12.2012) - promoted it with 50? on Facebook promotion
    - posted link on some faceook pages that contains 21.12.2012
    - created wordpress page ([h][tt][p]://shelterfinder.net)

    -> Total sale: 50x0,99$

    To do:
    - post on forums
    - post on chats
    - promote more on fb
    - make youtube video (buy some credits)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    Interesting case study, when it comes and goes will you rebrand the app? There are a lot of doomsdayers out there that believe the end of the world is coming (just not on that specific date).

    Nice One!

    Please do keep us updated. I'd like to know how many idiots there are... Phones won't work through any major disaster.

    Hmm the thing here is that some statistics show that if you make 1$ on android market you will make 5$ on apple.. This is why I decided for this version.. And I didn't have enough time to develop both.. maybe if I went to HTML5 applications (phonegap) at start I could offer on both market but I wanted performance this is why I went to native iOS development.. Mabye in future I will make app for Google play also but it all depends on the response now.. I think at 12:30 I get results for sales for yestarday and I will let you know!

    Hi sebastjan

    Heres a nice idea how to extend / improve your app with further information:

    Survival tips:
    - How to filter water
    - How to make weapons (Bow, Crossbow, Spear, ...)
    - How to hunt, make traps
    - Whats edible?
    - Selfdefense Tips, Techniques,...
    - First Aid

    Useful stuff:
    - How to bypass a car
    - How to pick locks
    - How to build a shelter
    - How to store food
    - ...

    After the given date you could reselle it as iSurvive, iSurvivor, iSurvived,...

    cheers olystyle

    Also very important to include in your app: How to charge your iphone/ipad when there is no power
    Otherwise they can't use your app :p :p lol
