Take the case of Mustafa Yusuf, whose App Tasks helps plan, organize and collaborate on personal and professional projects with ease. The app – available for iOS – was developed by Yusuf, who received support from Apple. Yusuf attended WWDC – Apple’s annual developer conference – in 2019 and says that “the teams at Apple were extremely fundamental to the success of tasks. ”
Akash Jain is another developer who created Floret – a journaling and planner app. The app allows users to add events, tasks and habits and track their life journey with daily mood and gratitude check-ins. Jain used multiple apps to track and organize his life, but felt that something was missing. That’s when he started working on Floret.
“I get several emails from people learning how Floret has made their lives better in these challenging times,” says Jain, who used CloudKit to keep his app secure and private. He claims users performed approximately 250,000 check-ins, completed 400,000 tasks, and developed 100,000 habits every day to improve their lives with Floret. Jain says Apple’s teams helped him both design and add new technology to his app.
Not all app developers create apps that are used by companies like Apple and. benefit or support Google. Yusuf and Jain are among the chosen few. Yusuf says the time and effort he put into developing his app for Apple’s platforms has paid off. He says that Appstore Functions around the world have driven organic growth. “It added a higher level of visibility that would otherwise be difficult to achieve in a competitive category,” he adds.
