Apple and Faces iMake - an ups and downs relationship.

posted: October 15, 2011

More than a year and a half ago, Eyal Dessau Tzafrir contacted me to create an iPhone App together. After having turned down some other entrepreneurs before, Eyal seemed so enthusiastic, that it was hard not to decide to jump into the venture with him.
We worked hard for 3 months with wonderful programmers and graphic designers and launched Faces iMake for the iPhone in March 2010. Faces iMake has received since then wonderful reviews and awards.

When you make an App (or a book or any creative project) you think it is the most wonderful and special baby, yet hundreds of thousands of Apps compete for attention and pretty soon it became obvious that the most significant factor that influences whether your App gets noticed or not is whether the people at the iTunes App store (meaning Apple) pay attention to it and decide to feature it and promote it in any way on their front pages of the store.
However there is no way to get their attention, to make a submission, no "send you new app to this address so we can consider featuring it"
The App store never paid attention to Faces iMake for the iphone which was obviously a source of disappointment for both Eyal and myself.
