Pregnancy Ticker Gold

A few days ago I released the ‘gold’ edition of the Pregnancy Ticker application for Android.

It has cost me quite some time to add the week by week information. Also an investment was made by hiring an artist to draw the week by week images and buying stock graphics for the new themes.

So far sales have not been sky-rocketing. I was hoping for a lot of ‘conversions’ from the current users, but they seem happy with the free app. To promote the paid version I released an update for the free app that contains some advertising for the Gold edition. Let’s see how that works out.

Anyway, I am really happy with the result and even have some new ideas I’d like to implement. It would be nice to have a ‘due date buddy finder’ and ‘Baby Twitter’ (Bwitter?) function included.

Pregnancy Ticker has been downloaded over 20,000 times!

It started as a simple tool to keep track of how far along my wife was. I put it on the market thinking that that at least a few other persons could enjoy it. So when the downloads counter passed the 20,000 mark it was a rather strange experience!

Never did I expect it to be so popular and loved. People write the nicest comments.

Because of the high demand I also get a lot of mails and request which I enjoy answering, it is not that much work. Also I decided to put out a paid version of the application as an answer to some of the most popular requests. One of the requests is to have week by week images of the baby its progress. For this I hired an artist who is working on the images right now.
