My New iPhone App, Fireworks Fun, finally released!

My new iPhone app, named Fireworks Fun, is finally in the app store today! It was almost going to be too late, since as you can see from the title we were trying to target audiences on July 4th :)

The dev time was intense for this since we started developing this in early June, after my graduation. I thought of the idea of making an iPhone app for July 4th before May since that would be one of the best ways to get exposure for an app. However, there just wasn't enough free time to work on it.

So we finally had free time after our graduation in June, and we worked for two weeks. I was the only programmer and my friend was the artist/multimedia producer. Programming a game by yourself is difficult, since there is so many components to manage. I think it was 15 hour work days for those 2 weeks. Just wake up, work, sleep, to make sure the app is finished early and came out in time. Thank god it did!

Anyhow, Fireworks Fun is a simple neat app targeted for audiences of all age who enjoys fireworks :) You can find more info about it on our blog .

If you would like to get a promo code to try it for free, message me and I can provide you with one! If you do try out the app, we would appreciate it if you can leave a review in the app store!

App Description:
Fireworks Fun is a fast-paced, addictive new game where you tap on fireworks to make them explode. Tap the right ones before the time runs out. More fireworks are fired as the levels increase, but watch out for the bombs! Rack up points with special power-ups and show off your best score on our global High Scores page!

Our Tap-a-Show mode lets you enjoy the explosions without a timer. Tap and drag as much as you want to create your own fireworks show.

A perfect way to celebrate July 4th (Independence Day), New Years, any other holiday, or if you just love fireworks!

Well there is the option of using the iPhone simulator on OSX, and the developer must give you a distribution of the app and a distribution profile to run it. There are add-ons to the simulator that could simulate the tilt sensing capabilities as well. I read about all of these, but never actually done them so far.

Now, of someone could just come up with a way of running iPhone apps on regular desktop or laptops, that would be great. And, yeah, I realize that those iPhone apps that require the tilt-sensing capabilities won't work, but there must be tons of apps that should work just as well on a regular computer as on the iPhone.
