The Moron Test back to #1 and more iPhone development news


This week, The Moron Test from the great guys at DistinctDev jumped back to the #1 paid app in the App Store. I’ve known the guys at DistinctDev for quite a while and the #1 couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of guys. The app that initially knocked off TMT was Sims 3. However, Sims 3 didn’t stay at #1 for very long. Don’t quote me on this, but as best as I know, I think this is the first paid app to be dethroned and then come back to #1.

If you search YouTube for TMT videos, you’ll see some amazing finger work. My favorite is this one:

If you haven’t purchased The Moron Test yet, spend the 99 cents and enjoy yourself. I still don’t have a great finishing time like the YouTube guy, but it’s always a challenge.

I also submitted a client’s new app’s (paid and free versions) to the App Store on July 7. Let’s see how long it takes for it to be approved. Once it is, I’ll let you know more about it.

And one more App Store item, another one of my client’s apps was *finally* approved on 7/8. It was submitted on 6/3, so it took quite a while to be approved. However, during that time was WWDC, 3.0 release and I’m sure a number of other items. So, all said and done, not great but looking at it in context, not horrible.

I’m working with a friend on some new ideas as well as trying to get another project out the door along with all the other current client work. I’m thankful for the work but also looking forward for a day off soon.
