AWSOM.org has, up until now, been primarily focused on setting up online sites for artists and comic creators. I do WordPress development, and host a few plugins here to add some features that might help out for the above purposes. Recently I’ve jumped into iPhone development, also to help out webcomic creators. Onezumi Studios just released a new service called the “Webcomics Central App Service“, which is designed to help webcomic creators connect with their fans through a branded iPhone app.
In many ways I see the iPhone service as similar to why I started this site. It’s not easy doing coding. Creators mostly don’t have time to even begin to look at this stuff. It’s also very hard and a very specialized skill, so it’s not something that many can even do. So once again we’ve stepped in to help in an area that we can provide our skill to the community.
So I plan on outlining some of the things we’ve discovered while developing our apps in hopes that it will make it easier for others to do so, and also outline why we decided to do the service in the first place (in other words, why it’s such a bitch to get anything developed for the iPhone).
So, the tales will soon begin. Brace yourself, it’s a bumpy ride.
