So, after 4 rejections my first iPhone game, xZorro (originally xBill) is now in the Apple’s App Store (*). It was a long journey - almost 2 months after first submission and I have just finished my second app (not a game) - its name is Aromatic. For this I worked with one renowned (in its field) company and what came out is… a cool app with great potential.
Aromatic was submitted to the AppStore today. More details very soon!
