MoneyCoach Diaries: 01 - 15 January 2024

MoneyCoach Diaries is my ongoing journey to turn my indie app into a more sustainable part of my business. First time reading? See what happened until now by tapping this link.

Hi again in 2024. I hope you had a great start of the year. I am still in the process of getting used to the new year, but I am getting there. I am still trying to get used to the fact that I am writing 2024 and not 2023. In case you don’t remember me, I am Perjan, the founder & developer of your lovely MoneyCoach app, turned YouTuber. Oh wait, I didn't post anything in a while and I will tell you why in this email. I am writing this diary to keep you up to date with what’s going on in my life and to give you a glimpse of what’s coming in the future.

Let's jump to the meaty details.

Where were you in December? I missed you.

Ohhh, that's sweet for you to say. Well, in December, I was extemely busy creating videos for my YouTube channel. I had a lot of fun doing it and I learned a lot of new things. I am still learning and I am still having fun. I am planning to post a new video every week, so if you want to see what I am up to, subscribe to my channel. And then we released a massive update for our other app Screen Time Real-time Control. We added an amazing new feature called Global Leaderboards. It's a fun way to compete with your friends and family to see who can use their phone less. It's a great way to start the new year and to get rid of your phone addiction. You can download the app from the App Store. And on the 22nd of December I shot a video that I wanted to share with you, but my beloved editor didn't want to work and then I had to fix a last minute bug. That's why you didn't hear from me in December. But I am back now and I am planning to write regularly.

What happened in the last 2 weeks?

Work Work Work. And then some sleepless nights because of the updated viruses and bacteria we got from daycare. I am working on a new video for my YouTube channel. I am working on a new version of MoneyCoach. I am working on a new version of MoneyCoach for visionOS. And I am posting on X more regularly, sharing my visionOS journey for MoneyCoach. You can follow me there if you want to see what I am up to.

What’s going on with MoneyCoach?

Massive changes are happening in the foundation of MoneyCoach. We are working nonstop on the visionOS version of the app. We are rewriting some parts of app from scratch to make it faster, more reliable and more beautiful. We are also improving the app's architecture to make it easier for us to add new features and to make it easier for you to use the app.

visionOS? What's that?

Well, if you are as crazy as I am about new gadgets, I don’t have to tell you what visionOS is. But if you are not, visionOS is the new operating system that Apple released for their new AR glasses (sorry, spatial computing device). It's a new way to interact with the world around you. It's a new way to see the world. It's a new way to experience life. It's awesome.

What does this mean for MoneyCoach?

Well, we are working on a new version of MoneyCoach that will be available for visionOS. We are working on a new way to interact with your finances. Here is a video I posted on X showing a glimpse of what we are working on.

What else is coming?

After releasing MoneyCoach for visionOS on Apple Vision Pro, we will focus on modernizing the iOS app. And fixing some bugs that you reported. And adding some features that you requested.

That is all for now. I will write again in a couple of weeks. Until then, stay safe and healthy. Love you all, especially the Premium users. Perjan
