The Tapbots duo are quitting their day jobs to work fulltime on their iPhone app company:
Longer term we aren’t looking to get any VC funding, grow to 100s of employees or get bought out by some big corporation. We may get help with support, testing and/or marketing, but development and design is going to just be us two for the foreseeable future. We think that’s the best way to keep the quality of our applications at the level that everyone expects. Our goal is to produce about 4 applications a year. We aren’t going to shovel out crap-ware to cash-in on our names. We aren’t going to write the next Office or Filemaker. We are going to write simple but incredibly polished applications that are created specifically for the iPhone/Touch devices. Two guys, lot’s of passion and a lot of hard work, that’s the Tapbots way.
Two guys, two popular iphone apps (“Weightbot sold 100k copies in its first 100 days, Convertbot is selling at about twice that rate.”), one mission to make quality apps. Good luck, guys!
