2014 highlights

December 31, 2014

As 2014 comes to a close, I would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year – hopefully 2015 will be a good one too!

Here are some personal highlights from the past 12 months …

  • My wife turned 50 and celebrated by completing her first marathon!
  • I climbed 47 new Munros (Scottish hills over 3000ft), finishing my 25 year round on 19th November
  • After 16 years, my ex-company decided to get rid of our entire group making 80 people redundant 😦
  • Unemployment was short lived as a competitor flew in and hired almost everyone! 🙂
  • I went on 173 runs, clocking up over 1500 km with almost 31 km of ascent

Some app highlights …

  • My website had 134,030 views from 43,603 visitors. These came from 163 countries!
  • There were 1945 comments, which probably means I answered close to 1000 queries (or 3 per day!)
  • iOS 8 was released. Still lots of bugs in Apple’s code, particularly around iCloud 😦
  • I launched a backup viewer for Mac but this hasn’t been particularly successful 😦
  • I did 25 (FREE) app updates throughout the year: 9 on Account Tracker, 7 on Hill Lists, 6 on Meter Readings and 3 on my Mac app
  • I am thinking about a rewrite of Account Tracker for 2015. We’ll see …

Now, its time for a beer I think … cheers!

    Quite a year by the sound of it! Thanks for the review. I love Account Tracker and tell anyone who discusses this type of app with me. I’ll be happy to contribute again to update costs. I never seem to find time to use the meter app but am determined to deal with that this year – as with your rewrite, we’ll see! I used to wish I could sync Account Tracker with iPhone (not just the last few months) but I’m probably more disciplined for not being able to. I have to have an admin session now and again, Best wishes for 2015

    Hello Graham, Thank you for your review of 2015 which was most interesting and very much appreciated. Whilst I use Meters and Accounts Tracker, I find it amazing you still strive for yet further perfection by considering a rewrite of the latter which to me, is the pinnacle of achievement. Anyway, may I as a mere ‘minnow’ in your client portfolio wish you every success in the New Year as well as your good lady moving on to higher pinnacles in her own personal aspirations. Finally as a thought to sustain your revenues and working to the well established maxim ‘your best customer is an existing customer’, invite your customers if they wish, to subscribe to a two tier scheme where they can opt into paying either a fee, or a subscription to benefit from ‘add-ons’. (Your ‘rewrite’ perhaps presents such an opportunity?) Best Seasonal Wishes, Peter Nehammer
