Please, dear reader, would you consider reviewing our App? Two kind people have (unprompted) given us some encouragement and 5 stars, and these are helpful, but a few more would be very welcome. Just click on the screenshot above and then where the arrow points and off you go.
I'm new to app publishing (APP-rentice?), so at the risk of boring the experienced app-people let me report on a few things that I have noticed.
1. Everything takes longer. You make a change on a website and the change is instant. Make a change to an app (which I have to ask my developers to do anyway) and Google Play is pretty quick, a couple of hours maybe, but the Appstore takes a week. Yes, a week, even for the most minor change. We published version 1.05 on Google a week ago, but as I write it's not in the Appstore yet.
2. The app is attributed publicly to the developer rather than the publisher. Thus ours says Pipe and Piper rather than International Education Connect because they are the ones with the app store accounts. So a slight miff factor, and a bit odd, but not a problem.
3. The download numbers given are a nonsense. OK you can't get them from Apple, but it took a couple of weeks for Google to reach 10 when the developers and I between us had probably downloaded the app more times than that in the first week as we were doing upgrades to 1.01, 1.02 etc.
On the plus side you can go back to an app after a few days and open the same page of data you left when you last used it, and of course it's fast. These days the website is so fast it hardly matters, but I mention it anyway.
Your support is much appreciated.
