With the app submitted to the App Store and a tentative date for the app launch set (before UK half term), Mr Glue Stories was finally becoming a reality, yippee! Amelia, Jose and I were just so excited about it!
What was left to do? Well a website for one!
Tasked with getting the website created with help from the wonderful Renat Galyamov from Leto, I wanted to keep it simple with the focus on the app, but at the same time reflect the brand’s creativity (don’t you just love Jose’s wonderful wallpaper?) and explore the world behind Mr Glue.
As part of this, I wanted to share as a series of blog postings, the journey we went through to get the app to market and hopefully encourage others to take the plunge … and if our mistakes or decisions helped avoid headaches for those trying after us, so much the better!
I also set about creating a community of like minded people who believe in our mission to encourage children to read. We hope that this community will offer us feedback on our new storylines, characters and what functionality our users want next. So if you haven’t found us yet on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube, please connect and post us your feedback as together we make a stronger BIGGER team to encourage children everywhere to read!
