iOS App Round Up

One of the most difficult things about creating an app is to come up with an original or innovative idea. Here are a few good ideas students of The Complete iOS 10 Developer Course have come up with.

 

Crack It Math

carck it mathCrack It Math is a visually attractive app where you have to solve mathematical problems before moving onto the next level. You start with some simple arithmetic which increases in difficulty then equations are introduced which gets more challenging as you progress. There’s even an AI Solver to give you a helping hand if you feel things are getting more difficult. In app purchases are available on the app  which will give you additional levels but the first 32 levels are free.

A great looking game to exercise your mind. You can check out this visually stunning game from the App Store.

 

Lightning Maths

lightnning mathsAnother mathematics based app, Lightning maths helps you practice your multiplication tables. And like the name suggests, you have to answer the questions quick! You can control the speed in which the questions are asked to make it more challenging and this will certainly keep your mind sharp! The author claims that it’s an intelligent app that remembers what you can and what you can’t do and will never ask you to complete the same operation twice, unless you ask it to.

Lightning Maths is completely free and you can get it from the App Store here.

 

Move Alarm Clock

move alarm clockAlthough all iOS devices have an alarm clock facility this app is an alarm clock app with a difference. This app will wake you up playing your favourite music giving you a positive start to the day. The app also has a built in weather update feature so you can see what the day ahead is going to be like. And if you need to get up in the middle of the night and you’re not near a lamp or light switch the app has a torch light facility too!

While all these features are available separately it’s nice that the author has gone to the effort to combine them all in my app. Check out the full features of this app.

 

Quickest Tap

quickesttapA multiplayer game the idea is to allow two players to tap on a button on each end of the phone as quick as you can. And whoever taps the quickest wins! The two buttons are on the same phone. Let’s hope there aren’t any reports of over enthusiastic players on this app. I can see how this game can become addictive though!

There’s score board that keeps track of each tap from the players. A very simple reaction game which has the potential to provide lots of fun for two people. You can check out Quickest Tap here.

 

Travel WODs

wodTravel WODs is an app intended for people who do lots of travelling and find it difficult to hit the gym. This app has a huge database of body weight exercises you can perform without the need for gym equipment.

It also has exercises to incorporate a kettle bell and jump rope too! With over 1000 exercises in its database you won’t run out of things to do. You can get this app from the app store here.

All New 6 Month Challenge – Change Your Life In 2017!

Do you want to start a business, develop new income streams or change your career this year?

Over the last 12 months I have been developing a new way to help people do exactly this, and I’m pleased to announce that The 6 Month Challenge is now here!

Take the challenge to completely change your life in 6 months, and make 2017 the year you take a huge step toward the life you want.

When you join the 6 Month Challenge, you will receive weekly guidance to help to set and achieve your big goals, along with special tools and access to an exclusive support group to give you inspiration and help when the going gets tough.

One of the biggest difficulties of learning online is finding the motivation to keep going, and so the 6 month challenge is all about making a commitment to change your life, as well as giving you weekly encouragement, direction and support to help you achieve your goals.

Enough already, how do I sign up!?

I want the 6 month challenge to be change as many lives as possible, and so I have made it available for everyone who buys one or more of my courses using the links below by Saturday 7th January. There is no extra charge for the challenge beyond the cost of the course. You must purchase using one of these links to get access to the 6 month challenge.

The extra good news is each course is just $10 using these links!

The Complete Web Developer Course 2.0 – just $10

The Complete iOS 10 Developer Course – just $10

The Complete Android N Developer Course – just $10

When does the 6 month challenge start?

The links below will expire on Saturday 7th January. Anyone who signs up using the 6MONTHCHALLENGE code and registers their purchase on Eco Web Hosting (as described in the How Do I Get My Free Stuff? video in each course – you’ll need to provide your email address) will be automatically emailed with full details of how to get started on Tuesday 10th January.

If you don’t sign up to Eco Web Hosting before Monday 8th January, don’t worry, you’ll receive the initial email as soon as you verify your purchase.

Is buying a course using that code the only way to join the 6 Month Challenge?

Yep! I may make the challenge available in other ways further down the line, but for now buying a course with the 6MONTHCHALLENGE discount code by Saturday 7th January 2017 is the only way to get access.

Is the challenge really free?

Yep! There are absolutely no charges beyond the cost of the course.

So what exactly do I get with the challenge?

You will get a weekly email every Monday morning from me with precise step-by-step instructions of what to do that week. You will also get access to online tools to help you keep track of your progress as you go through the Challenge. Finally, you get membership of the exclusive 6 Month Challenge Facebook Group where you’ll get advice and encouragement from myself and other students along the way.

The weekly instructions will start with a range of learning challenges, and then increasingly you will need to complete more independent tasks, such as building Twitter followers, creating a portfolio website, applying for freelance jobs and even starting your own online business. It’s not an easy challenge, but I can promise you it will be hugely rewarding, and I’ll be there every step of the way.

I’ve designed the 6 Month Challenge to contain everything that you need to start a new career, become financially independent or build your own business using the skills you’ll learn in my courses.

But I already have all of those courses!

Congratulations! In that case, gift one to a friend or family member 🙂

Once you’ve signed up, tweet me using the hashtag #6monthchallenge and I’ll give you a virtual high 5 to kick things off!

I sincerely hope the 6 Month Challenge helps you to create the life you want in 2017.

Happy coding!

Success Story – Jeff Hosler

Starting with small humble projects Jeff Hosler tell how he made his first $1000. He now has a regular income from repeat clients.

jeffhoslerMy name is Jeff Hosler, I have taken several of your courses. The complete iOS 8 Developer Course, Complete iOS 9 Developer Course, and finally the Complete Web Developer course. I had some programming experience from college, but I never actually put anything together. I was hopping between iOS 9 and web developing until I finally decided to stick with web developing.

Your courses are amazing. I never once felt lost, confused, or intimidated. Everything was explained so that anyone could understand what is going on. Rob is very active in the community he created, and there are also other students who will help you as well. Upon completing your course, I made my own website and decided to try out some freelancing sites from advice which I received from your book “How to make $10,000 while learning to code”.

It was very slow, and very hard to find work. Let me be the first to say it is not easy, you are competing with a bunch of other freelancers for even the simplest of jobs. My only advice is to make an appealing website that shows you are a web developer, and to just stick with it. Because I couldn’t find any work, I decided to create my own projects in JS / PHP; and showcased them on my website. I made many things like File Uploading/Sharing, a stat page for a game, and a page that used YouTube API to showcase a channel.

I decided to use two websites to find freelancing work. Freelancer.com and Upwork. I made a lot of bids on both sites, and told myself I would stick with whichever one gave me the first job. The first month I really didn’t get any work, despite me bidding $5 or lower. My website was made with bootstrap, and I guess it didn’t stand out much. I changed my website to what it is today, and I immediately noticed that I started getting responses and interviews. I got my first little job at Upwork, and kept using it since.

Once I put a few personal projects on my website I started getting a bunch of little jobs over the course of 6 months. The first few months I was making between $20-$50 a month. Finally I landed a long term freelancing gig that I have been working for for 5 months now. And Finally made  my first $1000 in November.

Since last month, I have landed two more clients, and I couldn’t be happier. I know that I would not be where I am today without taking Rob’s classes. Thank you for these courses, and thank you include in your courses, and all that you do. I am really excited to continue learning to become a better web developer.

I have 3 big clients right now, that use me for day to day work. The first one is Taxheaven, I got hired by them from word of mouth. I knew a guy who is a Full Stack Developer, and he put in a good word for me. My other two big clients I found on Upwork. I personally believe I landed the job by being completely honest about my work and experience. They both posted jobs stating they were looking for a Junior Level Web Developer. I applied, started that I have only been working for a few months, very willing to learn and accecpt new ideas, gave them some sample projects I worked on, and gave them a low bid based on my experience. Taxheaven pays me $20 a hour, the other two pay me $15 and $10 a hour. Which may seem low to a lot of people, but I believe that at the level I am at right now, the price is fair. That is the last bit of advice I can give, bid low, and give the client a honest description of your experience, and what they can expect from you.

iOS App Round Up

Here’s a few published apps from students of The Complete iOS Developer Course. It’s great to see some refreshing ideas, where they are a further expansion of apps from the course or totally new ones based on simple ideas! Getting a an app published is a great achievement!

 

Entre

entreEverybody has played higher or lower in some form or another, if you haven’t you would have at least an idea of what it is! This is a visually stunning game where two cards are dealt to a each player and you have to guess whether the 3rd card to be dealt is going to be higher or lower the the dealt cards. And to make things a little bit more interesting there’s an element of gambling involved! It’s not real money though, just virtual money which you can’t cast in.

You can get Entre at the Apple Store or this link.

 

Parky My Car

parkymycarHave you ever parked your car somewhere but forgotten precisely where it is? Parky My Car will help provide your car parking location as a reminder.  You have options to take a note or capture landmark beside your car location. Letting you choose your map appearance with a Remind after feature. And you can manage manage your car’s locations through parking history. Providing you with google maps or apple map routes to your car.

Pop Quiz – Letter

popquizAn educational app for young children who are learning letters of the alphabet. This app lets them practice learning their letters in an original way. Bubbles are dropped randomly on the screen and the goal of the game is to find and pop the letters before they disappear. Rise up in levels and the balls will fall faster and disappear quicker. Excellent for kids ages 4-10 but equally entertaining for adults.

You can get Pop Quiz Letters from the App Store.
