Announcing iComics 2.

January 1, 2020 •

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! I hope you had a fantastic start to this decade. I’m extremely excited at all the potential in 2020, and I hope you are too.

I was doing a little reflecting recently and I came to a bit of a scary realisation. I’ve been hacking away on iComics, my little comic reader app for nearly 10 years now.

It was 2010 when I bought the very first iPad. I was so impressed at the potential it brought to the table. A full-colour, high-powered computer screen shaped like a normal piece of paper. Compared to laptops and PCs, it could be comfortably held and operated at any angle; an absolute game-changer when it came to reading comic books.

Having decided my niche would be a DRM-free comic reader, in December 2011, I started working on a proof-of-concept of the app to see if it was possible. At the start of 2012, I announced my intention to build a comic reader app, and launched the first version in late 2012.

2019. The end of an era.

December 31, 2019 •

And just like that, 2019 is over, and with it, the 2010s (The Tennies? Tens? Tenties?) are also over. Blimey.

What an insane ride it’s been, both this year, and the last decade. So much has happened, so much has changed. So many good things, and also a couple of bad things.

Reflecting on 2019, this one was definitely an extremely tough one for me. Maybe even the toughest.

33!

December 3, 2019 •

If the amount of time between blogs has been any indication, this has been one absolutely crazy year. Before I knew it, 2019 is already practically gone and I just turned 33. Absolutely crazy!

While my parents came to visit last time, I was expecting this one to be really quiet. Maybe a nice dinner with friends, but not even any cake.

But my crazy and lovely coworkers had other plans. XD

Nicky.

February 11, 2019 •

A few days ago, we had to bid farewell to a loving member of our family; our adorable little dog Nicky. Nicky’s been with us for 17 years, and although she managed to baffle vets as to how healthy she stayed the entire time, this week, old age finally caught up to her.

2018. New Beginnings.

December 31, 2018 •

I say it every year, but it boggles my mind just how quickly every year goes.

I wrote last time that 2017 was a pretty cautious one for me. I suddenly needed to find new work completely without warning, and I also learned that my health was a lot more worse than I had realised. All in all, 2017 didn’t end all that well for me, but at least I knew what the stakes were.

2018 has been an incredibly interesting set of new challenges. I moved to a country that speaks a different language to me, and I went from an extremely small company to an incredibly large one.
