3 months and a week from coming up with the idea at a Flagons Den event, The Zen App is now available to buy.
It's surprising how differently you feel about it when you now know that it is public, not just a project!
I have no doubt that there will be some people that do not like the app very much, some may find it offensive (read the rest of the blog if so, you will hopefully change your mind) and from a coding perspective, it is not the most complicated app in the world, but Squirrel wrote it from scratch, with no knowledge of how to code in iOS. I think that is pretty awesome.
The original vision was purer than this release, as Apple did not allow the app in the form we wanted to present it. This has caused us to compromise on the ethos a little, which is a shame, but Apple is Apple.
There may be more to come from The Zen App Ltd. Who knows? This is a side project that may develop a life of its own, or perhaps a death of its own.
Watch this space...
