Quick Update

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
I've been working away almost non-stop at fixing up various problems with MARDEK over the last few days, though of course it takes time to get things done! The ∞ Android Beta ∞ is still ongoing, though; you haven't missed it if you want to give it a try, and I'd love to hear your feedback if you do!

The Importance of Feedback

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
Many people have volunteered to play the MARDEK Android open beta, but very few have actually provided feedback. I heard little back from the Patreon patrons, also. This makes me wonder whether it's because people can't be bothered, they disliked it, or they don't understand the importance of feedback...

MARDEK Android Open Beta! (EDIT 1)

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
...Moments after writing that other post, the Google Play link has suddenly become operational, meaning that I can finally do a mobile beta version! Gasp! If you have an Android device and want to be a part of this, then please keep reading!

Pending...

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
Just a quick update: I've uploaded a beta tester version of MARDEK to the Google Play Store so then people with Android devices can play it... but it's not yet showing up in the search results, and the link my developer page provided me just says "We're sorry, the requested URL was not found on this server", so hmm. I don't know if this means that something went wrong, or whether it'll just take some more time to appear...

MARDEK is too sexy

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
I'm in the process of uploading MARDEK to the Google Play Store, and to determine your app's maturity rating, you have to fill in a questionnaire thing, which at first I thought was too black-and-white and simplistic, so I wrote some long post about it here, complaining! BUT immediately after posting it, I realised that it's not as simplistic as I thought, so I suppose such a post was unnecessary.

Fretful Musings on Obsolescence

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
I'm planning to release MARDEK 'as soon as possible', but ugh; every time I think I'm done, I discover new barriers in the way... Not just technical bugs with MARDEK, but other things relating to how to release an app, or psychological avoidance stemming from isolation and a lack of immediate emotional support that makes it difficult to do research in the first place.

A Release Plan!

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
Thank you to those who commented on the previous post! I've read all the replies, and while I'm not yet 100% certain of what to do, I do feel at least that I have some ideas to work with. I'll reply to some individual comments later, but I'm also going to use this post to write out my general thoughts as they are at the moment.

I need help!

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
MARDEK's done, and I want to release it. However, I don't know how. Or rather, I don't know what the best approach would be. If anyone knows anything about this, or has any suggestions about who to contact, or is willing to do research of their own to learn the ins and outs of the industry so then we can all pool our knowledge together, I'd appreciate it; currently I'm feeling really overwhelmed because I have nobody 'in the know' to talk to and so I feel like I have to face all this alone. And so I'm writing this!

How I Work

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
For years now, I've tried to maximise my productivity by using various self-made timetables and to do lists and the like, with mixed results. Usually they worked wonders for about a week or so, then the motivation fizzled out and I fell back into old habits and procrastination. However, each new attempt built on the last, and a few months ago I feel I did come up with something that works relatively well for me, and has added much-needed structure to my work days consistently for the last few months. I'd like to talk about my methods here, partly because I'm embarrassed about delaying with message replies or about imagined thoughts of people thinking I'm 'not doing anything' or that I'm taking forever to get MARDEK done, BUT also because I know I'm not the only one who struggles with these things, and I know I always like reading about what has worked for other people so then I might get some inspiration from them.
