3 weeks ago, when Buddy Runner was released, I did not imagine the impact it would cause.
In these 3 weeks since we released it there were more than 5000 downloads. Is this an impressive number? Don’t know but I can say that it exceeds my expectations as this is not an ifart application. Downloading the app is the easy part, afterwards you need to put on your sport outfit and go for a run. Of course, not all users use it for running - some use it for biking, some for walking, some even for skiing and some just for fun. The real impressive point is that the number of people using Buddy Runner on a regular basis is increasing every day.
As I wrote in the past, the pleasure of having satisfied users (check comments and rating) is enormous and motivates us to keep investing in Buddy Runner (and other buddies). We have several good ideas and it is now the art of prioritization and execution to keep delivering superb product(s).
I hope to find the time to post some details on the technology under the hood. For the tech guys it must be interesting to get a glimpse of what I learned during this time.
Until next time, keep running!
