Hey friends. πŸ‘‹πŸ»
Hope you’ve all had a great week. 😊 It’s been a busy, but productive one for me (with the exception of getting food poisoning… 😬). Here’s a quick update!

πŸš€ EXIFixer Launch
On Wednesday, my latest iOS app EXIFixer was released to the App Store! πŸŽ‰ As with most software, it took longer to build than expected but I got there eventually! I’m looking forward to seeing how it performs over the next few weeks.

πŸ’° September Indie Dev Numbers
As ever, I like to look back on the previous month to see how my apps performed. Looking back on September, the numbers are pretty solid with a small amount of growth. πŸ“ˆ
What’s interesting to me is that only 18% of the $575 generated this month is through recurring subscriptions and hence is MRR. That small percentage is telling me that my pricing of single-purchase in-app purchases is too low in comparison to the subscription pricing. πŸ€” I’m going to spend some time optimising this in order to try and increase the percentage of subscriptions users.
Now I’m able to spend more time on my apps, I’m hoping that October and November will see a significant rise in the numbers. πŸš€ I’m hoping to push towards $1k sales and as mentioned, increase the MRR.

πŸ“± Twidget and Teams Updates
I’ve also spent some time this week updating two of my existing apps; Twidget and Teams. The updates include a number of improvements and bug fixes. πŸ›
With Twidget, I wanted to redesign the β€œGo Premium” screen to try and increase the conversion rate. I’ve also changed the points at which this screen appears too. I’m looking forward to seeing what impact this has conversions, I’ll keep you posted. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
