It's been a while since I released an episode -- because I'm building a dating app! It's specifically for finding Long Term Relationships. Tentatively calling it Bubble Dating -- changed the name to CoupleUp!  

 

Here's what I talk about:

  • It's been nearly three weeks, because I've been struggling with my depression

    • Still nervous about discussing depression and challenges of building publicly

  • Friends have said that my discussing it openly helped them

And openness and compassion is what I want in the dating community I’m building

Challenge 1: Apple rejected all my TestFlight builds for bugs, and then Monday's build as “dating app spam”

  • I got really angry and depressed

My counselor helped by encouraging me to privately tantrum out anger and sadness

Found out Apple says "App Store has enough fart, burp, flashlight, fortune telling, dating, and Kama Sutra apps, etc. already. We will reject these apps unless they provide a unique, high-quality experience."

And that apps “submitted for beta distribution via TestFlight should be intended for public distribution”

Oops. I've only built individual features to test!

Still, it seems stupid to only allow testing a full fledged app.

Entered a 30 second pitching competition and took 2nd place!

Challenge 2: taking critique very personally :(

  • Apple's rejections, obviously

Other people I pitch the idea to

Taking the rest of Christmas Eve off, as well as Christmas Day

  • If you celebrate it, have a Merry Christmas 🎄🎅

Have a happy New Year’s Eve! 🎆🎊🎇

More updates, and app progress, coming in 2021!
