Last night I did something I wasn’t sure I should do!! I removed (unpublished) my cineworld app from Windows Phone and Windows 8 stores.
In just over 2 years it has had 90K on phone and 40K on Windows8. It has come a long way and like a few other of my projects, it gave me a chance to try various scenarios in terms of design and performance.
Sadly one thing I never thought significantly was sustainability of the app in long term. My azure hosting had been free till date and from next week I start paying real money towards it. I have spend many many hours towards its dev and since the app doesn’t make any money for me so I can’t justify giving it a life line.
It has been good fun. Thanks for all the fish.
