Hello world

Popped on for a wee peek and see some name have posted in the last year that I know well. People still make apps on here? Old team still around? Happy Friday all!

Hey there 👋🏻 What a blast from the past getting the notification to this post was. Good times. I don’t use the platform anymore, but was thinking of starting up with apps again. Need to brush up on my skills again though. Doesn’t look like much going on with this platform for a while.

Hey Miche! How is life back across the pond? Everything still works for the most part it seems. Good to see your name!

All good here thanks MacApple! I’m wondering if your post is the sign for me to start with App Dev again. Where did other people go with their app dev? Anyone got any current apps in the App Store? Really loved this community back in the early days.

Hi all! Happy to see so many familiar faces! I know the app market has changed quite a bit over the past few years... so cool to see people are still doing indie-style development. I still use Buzztouch for a handful of apps on the Apple App Store, so it's certainly possible... Behind the scenes, the server infrastructure for Buzztouch just moved to a new host (Digital Ocean) and much of the core has been modernized (PHP 8.0 and MYSQL 8). This was a pretty large effort– just these past two months there have been 99 code deploys to the platform! (Granted, this is often overdue maintenance to keep the platform operating as-is... there's still much left in terms of what could be done to modernize!) This is a labor of love (outside my full-time "day" job) and I have lots of ideas of where the BT Platform could go... but often not the time to execute. Perhaps this will change someday and we'll all be making apps with Buzztouch for Apple Vision Pro™... ;) Anyways, happy as always to chat with the gang! (Would anyone be interested in a Buzztouch Discord server?)

Let's keep nudging this thread. See who is out there and I'll post an occasional wee snippet. I know there are people out there. Many happy memories from here and glad to see it is still around. Who's out there?

Just popped in to check the status, too.. Miss the good vibes here. I have stopped making apps for a while, and moved on to another platform, but keep thinking about this as the best, friendly and supporting community. Cheers, Kristian Copenhagen, Denmark

Hi MacApple! Are you still on the other side of the pond? I bet you are missing the cold over here in the UK! The "good old days" were fabulous around here. I remain grateful for people's help and loved the in-person meet-ups. We had a fab time! I am not doing apps at present. I'm lacking app ideas and in need of inspiration. Hope you are all well :)
