Love ur positive attitude. little to gain, nothing to lose. wonderful!

This app is so ugly that my phone screen cracked when the app started haha... Being serious, I see few improvements: better font (in the start page), nothing that a resking would solve. For other side, let a third part give you an opinion, since your angry mood is giving a biased point of view... And for last: if you know you did something wrong, it's because you are doing something right. Nothing is SO wrong you can't learn from it. Thanks for sharing!

Man , this video was funny and awesome story too. I've been working with several indian developers and I had surprises of many kinds too. There are very good and very bad developers anywhere, particularly in one project I was in contact with a very good one, and we finished successfully the first part of a project. When we started the second one, the developer was a failure. It was evident for me that they were two developers sharing the same username, and who took the lead in the second part simply didn't know anything...

Your app is so unengaging that users pay to turn the notifications off.

*"How rubbish I am..."* LMFAO
Cool. Sp what library do you make the IAB with?
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
+Everything Tech Review It depends on the framework, but for native Android we just use the IAB Helpe.

First I love your videos <3 <3 Suggestion for you guys: I saw ads in your app screenshots so first of all remove them because it create bad impact. last thing is there any way to contact you in personal like in email or skype?
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
And, just so you know, I am not looking for any developers at the moment. But if I can help in another way, please let me know.
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
Thanks Anwar. I appreciate it. Most people contact me via Snapchat or Twitter (from the beginning of the videos). The email address is also on the website, but I get hundreds of emails a day and unfortunately sometimes miss them (or they go to the spam filter).
Good afternoon. Tell me how often people buy off advertising on your android applications?
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
It's actually not that often. In the early days, that was the only benefit and most people would rather have ads than pay. So, I think locking content or providing more value really helps more.
no. I mean in-app purchase to disable ads
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
Hi. I use ad networks, so I don't know how often they buy the products after they click the link. Is that what you mean?

Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
Hi. I put contact details at the beginning of the videos for Snapchat and twitter. My email is on my website, but I might not get that. Just so you know, I'm not looking for developers at the moment, but can help with anything else.
Rıfat Erdem Sahin (1 year ago)
Eric your mission statement is #we make apps# (my name is eric and i make apps) how did that serve you ?
Awesome channel content i took my Ubuntu book and threw it in the trash so much bs that no one aucttusly does
Rodrigo Graça (1 year ago)
"little to gain, nothing to loose" I have only a few apps but I will not remove them while they make a few cents a month... and at least until they pay themselves ...
Jaime Salas (1 year ago)
you app is so ugly that the appstore reviewer quit his job... just kidding!!! i really like the idea of the game, i can see myself playing that, you should try to remake the game, i think the concept its good also, only some images and the font dont help, but overall its a really good game idea! also congrats with the daily videos, theyre really good! All are app related but in different approach each, that keeps the topic fresh, each day i wonder of what would be about
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
+Jaime Salas Thanks Jaime. I love it. He did quit his job! I appreciate that. I had big plans for this idea but it was still very simple. I still don't know what each video will be about either. :-)

Eric, Jesse Amlin here. You should have passed Over the Indian team. Instead you Overpassed em. LTISM! Rebranding time ? It's cool that you can make fun of yourself a bit. I can relate. A big part of my sense of humor is self-deprecating. And we all have done stuff thats cringe worthy but humorus in a way. I think its better the way you look at it for what it is instead of removing it and pretending it never happened. Hell, if I was about to hire someone then found out they were hiding a retarded son down in the basement pretending he didn't exist all the while promoting his other more successful children everywhere. I'd have to reconsider. LTISM! Again!
Imheadstrong (1 year ago)
Overpass Hey! The man responsible for Spybot deployment figured it out. lol.
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
+imheadstrong Hey Jesse. Great to hear from you again. I won't tell everyone what LTISM stands for!

Hahaha I'm an Indian, would like to know the company name. why you prefer corona you can achieve better results with unity. I'm a developer myself now learning game engines and I think unity is better than corona.
Dominik Witka (1 year ago)
If you run a company, you have to start thinking economically. Unity might be more powerful, but why would he use Unity if he can also achieve the desired outcome with Corona in a faster time? There is a lot more to app development than "how powerful your engine is".
100 crore dream (1 year ago)
One more thing reply if you can. These stats (link-http://appleinsider.com/articles/17/01/17/apples-app-store-continues-to-pay-developers-more-than-google-play-thanks-to-chinese-ios-users-) shows that by 2020 there will be atleast 100 billion downloads atleast. Sot hings cant go to zero in just 3 years. So it means developers should be positive for atleast next 3 years..And android will bea round 85% of the total apps...so adroid future is bright isn''t it?
MyVideos963 (1 year ago)
Hi,have you ever used guru.com to hire someone?
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
+MyVideos963 That company I mentioned had contacted me. I get 4-5 companies contact me a week. But, I use a site called onlinejobs.ph for people in the Philippines. That site is not great (and I found some dishonest people there among the very good ones) but I use it a lot. For short projects, I use Upwork.
MyVideos963 (1 year ago)
No idea,there are bad reviews....that's why I asked you.Apparently that site is like ODESK but only for IT jobs.Where did you find companies in India?Thanks
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
No, I never have. Are they good?
100 crore dream (1 year ago)
Hi eric, it's me again. I wanna ask something which is killing me inside which is quite related to "is it to late to make an app"?.. People are talking about "progrssive web apps" and " android instant apps", o these things gonna kill native developers future. Because I am focussing on making a succesfull native android app dev company by 2020. So I am a bit worried if PWA gonna take over.
Dominik Witka (1 year ago)
If you want to be a developer, you are going to learn new languages, engines and SDKs your whole life. 3 years are a long time in the digital world (If you wonder why, check out "Moore's law"). Those people who think that something is killing something else in some years are just guessing like everyone else. If you have a vision, follow it but don't expect that you never have to make changes. :D
Imheadstrong (1 year ago)
Overpass Right right! Adapt and overcome by way of vision and innovation.
shivam pandey (1 year ago)
100 crore dream don't worry bro, I started just a year ago and as a programmer you don't have to worry because when you learn one framework then you can easily switch to whatever comes next. I started with native now learning game engines with web development. so don't worry just keep learning. 😊😊
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
Personally, I doubt PWA would take over in that time. But, you never know.
Overpass Apps (1 year ago)
I think you will still be able to use those skills. The market won't disappear. But it will change. And, with those skills and the millions of existing apps out there that still need to be maintained (even if no new ones are created-- which is unlikely doomsday scenario) would need those skills. You can't go wrong picking up new skills. Java is a great skill to have. PWA would not likely take over. But if you are looking for the best skill to have in 2020, I don't know.
