Merge Conflict is a weekly discussion with Frank and James on all things development, technology, & more. After years of being friends, Frank and James finally decided to sit down and start a podcast about their lives as mobile developers using Xamarin. Much more than just another mobile development podcast, Merge Conflict, reaches all areas of development including desktop, server, and of course mobile. They also cover fun things happening in the world of technology and gaming and whatever else happens to be on Frank's and James' minds.
No topic is off limits this week as we talk about testing IAP on mac with mac backups, awesome store promotions coming Frank's way and how to build awesome multi-window apps for macOS and iOS and the new SceneDelegate.
Wow! What do we even talk about this episode?!?! Who knows, but it is super fun as we have lightning-fast lightning topics talking about what the heck is happening on the stock market, Frank's next robot, and listener questions!
It is not Franks' turn to get his next app into the app store. We take a look back at what went into it's creation, his choices for monetization, and thoughts on what needs to happen leading up to the main release.
We have come to the epic conclusion of James's app Island Tracker, his Animal Crossing app for tracking turnip prices with friends. He is ready to roll out his freemium version of the app while upgrading all of his existing customers and updating the backend.
Customer support is hard to do right, and app support is even harder. How do you get your users to contact you with proper information before they give you that 1 star review. We discuss our journey into improving our support system in our mobile apps.
As 2020 comes to a close it is time to hustle to try to try to squeeze in app releases. James talks about this latest creation, My Cadence, and how he was able to get the app onto the app store within 1 week and how he ported it to Android in 1 day!
