Ahoy everyone! What a week it’s been!
Pirate Scribblebeard has made it through its first week in the app store and reviews have been rolling in – with more coming next week. We are proud to say that kids and parents are really loving our drawing app! We couldn’t be more excited and thankful to our faithful supporters and deckhands!
It’s a surreal feeling to read the feedback from these reviewers – essentially strangers – and see that they get it. That they understand what the goal was with making this app and where I want to take it. It still unbelievable that kids around the world are now using this app and (hopefully) enjoying it – it gives me butterflies just thinking about it!
For the small community that has been helping me – on Facebook and Twitter and resource sites around the web – a heartfelt thanks! We couldn’t not have even launched this app without you.
