iOS 12 has finally landed, bringing with it a whole raft of new features and updates like Siri Shortcuts and enhanced AR. It offers plenty of opportunity for developers to innovate and build awesome new apps. That is, if you know the development ropes.
Two years ago, my partner and I launched an Apple Watch app to complement our iPhone fitness app. Little did we know that our embrace of Apple’s smartwatch would threaten the very existence of the gym app we’d been developing since 2012.
Each year since we launched Reps & Sets, we updated it to keep up-to-speed with all the cool new features Apple rolled out at its Worldwide Developers Conference. That all changed last year, though. That’s when we discovered that, by adding support for Apple Watch, we had inadvertently taken a poison pill that could effectively kill our iPhone app.
It doesn’t have to be this way. With a few key changes, Apple could turns things around and reinvigorate the Apple Watch app ecosystem.
With tomorrow’s Apple announcement, the public will definitely get to see first-hand the improvements and new features of iOS 12. Apple’s new operating system is designed to hit on three marks: speed, responsiveness and delight. Some of these upgrades include launching apps faster and new augmented reality capabilities powered by ARKit 2.

One of the amazing benefits of selling software on the internet is that you can reach customers from all over the world. So why would you cut out a huge potential market just by assuming everyone who wants to use your product speaks English?
In fact, ignoring other markets can be one of the biggest marketing oversights software companies make.

As indie developers, we can get too caught up in how things work — what features our product has, what users can do with it. It often seems like if we can just explain how our product works, everyone will become a devoted user.
We spend lots of time pulling together onboarding videos and tutorials. But there’s a whole other front in the battle of promotion and conversion: making an emotional connection between a potential user and your product and brand.
