This is the story of how an iPhone app I built in 6 hours got 2.3 million downloads, generated a full-time salary and was acquired after 18 months in a free eBook. Let me know what you think!

Stuart consistently gives out awesome content. This is an excellent read for anyone who has anything to do with the App Store. I have found myself linking to many of his posts in Indie iOS Focus Weekly over the last year. Great work. Keep it up.

Stuart builds stories around his experiments making them easy to digest and understand. Stuart is also an excellent public speaker with a disarming and relaxed style. Brilliant read - you should record this as an audiobook too!
