New Kwik Showcase ‘The Snow Queen’ and the Kwik Showcase Submission Form…

We’ve added a new app to the Kwik Showcase, The Snow Queen. This gorgeous app, which is based on the classic fairytale by Hans Christian Anderson, was developed by Sunshine Musicals. This musical storybook adventure comes to life with 5 original, fully orchestral, kid-friendly, songs performed by professional singers and includes sing-a-long text so that you and your child can join in the fun! Beyond the terrific songs, the storybook includes beautiful animated illustrations throughout – ladies and gentlemen, this is yet another “Kwik made” app done right! Congratulations to you Laura for the excellent app you created ! I highly recommend that everyone, young and old, buy this app today – it is…

Useful Data from Kids and Apps: A New Era of Play

One of the questions developers always ask is “How much should I charge for my App?” especially given the fact that the current trend towards the freemium/in-app purchases pricing model is so popular right now. I thought this information might be useful for Kwik users and all App developers in general. Earlier today the NPD Group released results from their latest report “Kids and Apps: A New Era of Play“. Here is a snippet from the press release: App Purchasing and Purchase Intent While gaming applications are the apps most frequently paid for (35 percent) followed closely by educational game and movie apps, most of the apps downloaded to devices…

App of the Week Honors for Sparky The Shark, Kwik Showcase and more…

This past week saw our old friend Sparky the Shark recognized by the team at Ansca as the App of the Week. I am very excited that Mark Newell and the rest of the team at Biscuit Interactive won this award because of the incredible work and time devoted to this excellent app. The talent and passion on display in this interactive storybook really brought Sparky to life. Kwik, Photoshop and Corona just helped get the app to the finish line and that includes being available for purchase on the App Store and Google Play. I invite you to check out Sparky the Shark, use it as a benchmark to…

Happy 1st Anniversary Kwik!

As you have probably noticed, in celebration of our 1-year Anniversary we have launched our new site… and that’s just the beginning! When I think back, it is hard to imagine that it has been only a year since I launched Kwiksher and its first product: Kwik – a revolutionary Photoshop plugin that levels the app-development playing field, enabling everyone from first-timers to professional designers to build mobile apps and interactive storybooks quickly and easily without the need for coding skills. At the time I was pretty confident the product would be a success, but honestly, I never imagined it would be so well received. Especially when I look back…

Results from the past surveys: monetization and new interface

In the past weeks many of you were very kind providing feedback and sharing information. Saying that, I think it is nice from my side to share the results of the past 2 surveys. Hope you see some value here! Monetization 82 users responded the survey about monetization. 3 questions were asked: Have you published a paid app/storybook with Kwik? If so, how much did you earn? 20 users answered yes. Only one of the respondents made more than $1,000 in sales. Another one made more than $500, and 18 earned less than $500 since launch. The third question for me was the most important one: Did you market your…

Update on K2

If you follow Kwik in Twitter (@kwiksher) or Facebook (/kwiksher) you know already that development keeps going. In fact, I have even provided a glimpse in a previous post. The aim of today’s update is to give you more info on current progresses. So, before asking “when the new version will be available”, keep in mind that we are still months (in plural ) away from K2. The list below includes only things that are already coded and tested (there are lots of other stuff to come): Ability to include video, web, map, text input, vectors, dynamic text, and more as replacements; Export module was re-written and it is much…
