The 6-hour work week
Developing software for a big company during the week, Round Trip Software is my chance to develop some fun ideas of my own. Having two kids, almost every idea you see here is inspired by them. And having a regular job as well, time is in short supply.
Our apps are created slowly on Sunday afternoons, when my wife watches the kids for a few hours on her own as practical. (I was briefly tempted to call this company “Sunday Afternoon Software”, but that name makes me feel sleepy.)
Now this is not the quickest way to get an app into the App Store, but it does eventually work. Even a simple app can take months or years to complete.
To paraphrase Apple for our situation:
It’s the experience that matters — as long as you don’t mind getting it next year.
“We” is just me. That means no meetings, no miscommunications, no dependencies, a flexible schedule, and no disagreements (not out loud, anyways).
Software concept, design, development, testing, and support. Basically, everything but the visuals, which are entrusted to the fine artists on Elance.
