Spoon For Dotty

72x iAL Icon

This month percussionist Jo May (a friend of mine) is playing the spoons all over the country to raise money for – a hospice that is providing support for her sister.

I would like to support this great cause and so I am going to donate £1 from every in-app purchase of my app inspirationAL – wake up inspired to the fund.

How it works:

1.  Download the FREE iPhone/iPad alarm clock app NOW and you will receive 14 inspirationAL quotes to wake up to.

2. Make your in-app purchase from ‘want more?’ on the settings page of the app and you will receive unlimited quotes. Please make your purchase anytime between Mon 23rd and Sat 28th Feb and we will give £1 per purchase to Jo’s fund. (We receive £1.34 from the £2.29 purchase price after Apple take their fees)

3. Our daily data will confirm exactly how many downloads and purchases we receive and this will be given to Jo with the money.

So please spread the word and tell as many people as you can to download and lets see if we can help Jo raise as much money as possible for Dorothy House.

Follow Jo here to watch everything she is doing

Many thanks

inspirationAL alarm clock – helping you raise money for charity

72x iAL Icon

I wanted to say a big thank you to all those people who have downloaded our app inspirationAL – wake up inspired

Our aim was to create a cool universal app that would wake people up with an inspirational quote to set them up for the best day possible.
We have done this and are continually working to improve it for you.

Behind the quotes is a wealth of information because every quote has a link to the person who contributed it. Those who click the links will find inspiring people who have amazing stories and insights to a whole range of life experiences. Their passion is to help people live their life fully no matter what situation they find themselves in. I urge you to delve behind the quotes and explore the wisdom on offer. It may help now or in the future but it is there for YOU.

The app is still FREE to download with 14 quotes provided with the alarms. It is fully functioning and if you like it the in-app purchase enables you to have an unlimited number of quotes.

However we want to help you further. We are now giving a high percentage of the in-app purchase money to a charity you nominate.

How it works:

– You as our app user contact us to say you want to raise money for a charity you are supporting, it can be any registered organisation large or small. Eg A Local school to The Red Cross

– You get as many people as possible to download the app for FREE by using your social media and word of mouth.

– We then give you a designated date(s) for all those people to make the in-app purchase.

– We then give you a percentage of WORLD sales on the date(s) agreed. It’s that simple!

– We get daily analytics so we can show you exactly how many downloads we received.

– Currently for the US we will donate $1.50 from every purchase. (£1 in the UK contact us for other countries)
The current in-app price is $2.99 we receive $2.10 after Apple take their fees so you can see you get a very large portion. The rest we reinvest to help others have the same opportunity.

This really is for everybody. I am using the app myself in this way to raise money for a local hospice I volunteer at here in the UK.

You can follow everything that people are raising money for by liking us on Facebook, follow on Twitter or this blog.

New category for app developers to get together

To all app developers

I there……. having enjoyed some recent interaction on twitter with developers I thought I would create this new category on my blog for those who want to discuss apps and developing in more detail.

I would be very interested in finding out how others find the process of building, marketing and running an app business.

If you want to share anything that you think would help others or have a question that you want to ask just let me know.

Lets see where it takes us and how we can help each others apps to grow!
