While stuck in a cube doing work I didn't like, I spent my free time learning all the skills I needed to build my own apps. I was looking for a good idea when @martindale2u came to me this past January. He had a problem because he regularly wanted to say more than would fit in a 15 second Instagram Story. To fix this, we partnered up to build Storeo. A first for both of us! After 150 hours of development, we launched in April, 2017. It was a huge hit. People were raving about how much they love Storeo.. In fact we had an Android user go buy an iPhone so he could use Storeo! We pioneered the β€œseamless story” concept to great success. You now see folks from the Seattle Seahawks to celebrity Tony Robbins using Storeo or one of its less popular clones. -------------- Storeo is a freemium app with around 10% conversion rate for the $9.99 in-app purchase to remove the watermark. 2017 TIMELINE Jan β€” Initial idea Feb β€” Learn React Native and build ugly prototype Mar β€” v1 development & beta testing with 20 people Apr β€” App Store launch. $290 in sales May β€” $480 sales Jun β€” $570 sales July β€” $1,070 sales, featured by Small Talk Social Aug β€” $1,360 sales, featured by Buffer and SocialMediaExaminer Sep β€” $1,520 sales, featured by Social Chefs Oct β€” $2,700 sales, featured by Later (twice!) CURRENT TOTALS: 10,800 downloads $8,000 sales 2,800 monthly active users To learn how Storeo came about, watch this recording of our Instagram launch video:
I’ll be around and would love to answer any questions you have about the tech stack, challenges, how we got our first customers, etc! What do you think about Storeo and our progress so far? P.S. We’re starting Android development right now. It should be available in December!!

@martindale2u @beedesignllc What a story (pun intended)! I loved the timeline you shared with us - incredible progress can't wait to see what's next for you πŸ‘πŸ½
@martindale2u @beedesignllc Wow, now that's some great insights. Nobody shares their sales ever. Thank you for sharing. Congrats. Will be waiting for Android. But if you did use React Native, why isn't it available for Android ❓
@martindale2u @deadcoder0904 haha yeah, thank you! It uses React Native but has a lot of true native code for the video processing (Swift and Objective C). RN makes a lot of cross-platform stuff easier, but it doesn't always come for free unfortunately!
@martindale2u @beedesignllc That's what I thought. Video processing isn't easy at all in RN.

Easy to use and makes for creating long form content on IG stories much easier.

Pros:

Really nice app.

Cons:

Nothing major, maybe some UI changes, but all in all a well made app.

What UI changes do you suggest?
How Awesome!!!
