Dear Fellow Novice App Builders with ibuldapp,
Previously, I had talked about not being able to insert an image and type over it in the software for ibuildapp.com and that is true as I understand the software as it works on this date in September of 2012. What I was aiming for was a screen that looked like this:
Quite a daunting task this would be to create 20 images like the one to the right for each of entry in “The Perfect Husband App”.
So, if you’re asking, why don’t you just use a background color and insert a small image with your text, you would be about 1000 miles ahead of me. So that just occured to me this morning, and if it hadn’t occured to you, you might try this for your “quotation” app or other interesting “ibuildapp app.” The image on the right is the labor-intensive way of creating a colorful page in ibuildapp.
In the “Let’s eat out tonight” screen to the left, just one image imbedded on a page with color. It certainly cuts down on hours of work, and I think if I intersperse these pages with the other more “beautiful” screens, it will satisfy the customers.
And by the way, speaking of customers, don’t be disappointed if you have NONE. Unless you have an “Angry Birds” app or a boat-load of money, promoting your creation for thousands of downloads will be difficult. After I finish pretty-ing-up my app this weekend, I’m going to create a facebook business page for it and take out a facebook ad. We’ll see where that goes.
By the way, if you are kind of heart, I sure could use some positive reviews of my app at the googleplay.com store. Search for it with the “the” as in “The Perfect Husband App” or just click here. It’s only a 99 cents.
Cheerio for now. Let me hear from you. This is all very exciting, albeit a tad frustrating, but onward we go.
