    About a couple of years ago I received the following email on a Saturday night from Ezell who wrote: "I am looking to get into the industry and like you focused on African American games. How have you found the industry has it been lucrative?" Here was my exact answer: "Hello Ezell. The app industry is extremely hyper competitive so you have to know what you are doing. Lucrative income was not my primary motivation for creating apps. I will tell you that out of 20 apps we have released 4 of the top 5 money makers do have African American themes or images however some have cross-over appeal beyond the black market. Not all of our apps have African American themes. Focus on research. Study the market. Release high quality products." I wonder how Ezell is doing now and if a decision was made to take the first step by moving forward. You just have to do it and make a move without fear to accomplish what you want. Here's a tweet along with a link to an article I shared that is relevant to the theme of Ezell's question. "Anyone can do it," making apps that is, but you have to believe in yourself first!   How to make a video game @Clickteam @Basic4Android.

  • 0 How to Use Online Training to Get Ahead

    Don't knock online training if you've never tried it. We recently counted 19 certificates of completion from Udemy courses we've tackled going back to 2015. Discipline is the key to success to sharpen a skill or learn something new. The convenience to set your own schedule and pace are big benefits with online courses. We've done other online courses with additional trainers too, however Udemy is our favorite. Our total certificate of completion count from everyone is 37. As someone who was successful slogging it out at a 4 year school to get a college degree the traditional way by attending classroom lectures I have a passionate appreciation for both worlds: old school and new school learning. You still have lots of time left before the end of 2018 to make your move! Lifelong learning makes a lot of sense. Lifelong learning makes a difference. Go for it.

    Hugh Smith If you are into game cheat videos, climb on board with me as I try to get through all of the levels of Super Hero Flyer Game App without embarrassing myself. You'll get a lot of cool tips about how to approach the game with strategy. I share a bunch during the game play but I don't give it all away. You will definitely discover more about how to play the game. There is a nice help screen in the game app that is a great guide for all of the superhero character moves. In an earlier blog post about the Superhero Flyer team I give credit to the other international crew members who helped contribute to the development of the game. I've just added a big extra you don't see and I don't mention in the video and that benefit to you in the game will be released soon. Watch the video and see if I can beat the game!

  • 0 The App that Reveals what Made America Great

    "You will make a difference in the world, but not immediately. Your first obligation is to find something you like doing, because if you like doing it, you'll do it well" -- Condoleezza Rice. These words of wisdom sum up the thousands of thoughts we've compiled into a comprehensive black history resource app that has just been released. As you read through Black History Quotes Express you won't be disappointed.  What I found most interesting in doing the research for this project about the men and women we profile was that their true personalities can't be masked when they write or speak their minds.
