Can an app sit 8 months idle in the AppStore, and all of a sudden become the #2 app? With no updates? No advertising? I guess the answer is yes! My coloring book app, Coloring Fun, is now the #2 app in Games/Kids category in the UK AppStore. Moreover it is indeed #43 in overall games category and #79 in the general apps category!! And the fun does not stop there. It is #3 in France, #5 in Italy, #7 in Canada, #7 in Australia and #17 in Germany… After 8 months?? And more importantly is there really a significant market for applications for kids in the AppStore?
My first iPhone application is approved and went live tonight! It is a coloring book application for kids. Once I submitted the application, the approval did not take that long (9 days). However changing from an individual to a company account in ITunes Connect took over 1 month. Anyways now that my account is set up properly, it should hopefully be faster to submit new applications.
A friend of mine came up with the original idea and also provided me with 10 of the original drawings. My dear wife, Oya Karatal, helped with coloring the drawings and picking the colors for the color palette. And I did the programming.
