Yesterday, I briefly mentioned an app I have called "Secret Agent Typing" which is not great. But, it's not my worst game. Today, I show you my worst game on the app stores and how we created it.

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...
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.
is there any way to contact you in personal like in email or skype?
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).
Overpass I'm actually not a devloper.. I am owner of an app but I had some issues with my devloper as a result I will not continue with them.. now my app isn't supported although the app has a potential to be a successful.. well if you can help me with this ..
sorry for my English
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.
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
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.
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.
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".
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 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.
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.
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
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. 😊😊
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.
