How to Become an Indie Mac Developer
7:24 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Gus Mueller, owner of Flying Meat Software and creator of such applications as Voodoopad, has posted on his blog a beginner's guide to development. This "guide" could very well be seen as a timeline of Gus's success, nevertheless his blog entry offers tips and advice through seven lessons discussing improving your products to not quitting your day job.

I wrote FlySketch so that should anything happen that would make sales of VoodooPad tank, I'd have another app to lean on for cash. Plus now I get to do fun things like sell bundles at a discount which is good for sales as well. Plus my mind wanders so it's good to work on something other than a desktop wiki all day long.

Moving right along...

So it turns out that I did end up making my goal for Jan '05. And Feb, March, April, and so on. Every month that passed my confidence in going indie increased. I talked it over with the wife, and we decided that when we moved to Seattle that I'd be doing this full time. For the first six months I'd have to make X amount of dollars, and the second six months (which starts in Jan '06) I'd have to make more... and so on.
