Interview with Daniel Rosenfield Of MagicGenieApps

I am presenting a 2nd interview on the blog today with Daniel Rosenfield Of MagicGenieApps.

Check out the interview:

1. What got you interested in developing Android apps? Share your story.

I was a mortgage broker tired of working 12 hour days at the office. I saw that someone I knew was making good $$ by making apps and generating revenue from the ads in the apps, so I begged him to teach me how to make apps and create revenue from the apps

2. Tell us about MagicGenieApps, how does it work and why should people use it to create an Android app?

This product is a web based software that I created that is able to take a live motion GIF image (and soon to be video mp4 and 3D cube images) and turn it into a workable android APK file that you can upload into google play or any of the other 30 android market platforms. Our software creates the APK file, with the option of you being able to add in a choice of up to 12 different ad networks for quick revenue…and then simply upload the app and revenue is generating in a matter of hours

3. How have you about marketing MagicGenieApps and what’s working for you?

I am mainly marketing this website to users android developers who want a cheaper and quicker solution to making cash making apps quickly–also is good for beginners who have no programming experience and want to make apps quick without having to hire developer–its for any one who wants to make cash with apps quickly and effeciently

4. Where do you see the future of mobile app development going?

I think more and more users will be using apps for many different types of daily activities and its going to be the norm of the future—people use their phones more than there computers–it is simply a daily normal use so why not adapt and create something people can make and upload quickly—live image aps and wallpaper apps are fun as people love them as screen savers–people do nto delete screen savers as they like options for their phone—we are supplying a demand that people want.

5. What are your future plans for 2014 and beyond?

My plans are to expand this android app generator and add in new and cool app making features that will give the uiser the ability to choose between different types of apps they want to generate

Interview with Rebecca Collins of

Today I am presenting another written interview with Rebecca Collins of which is a unique android application for organizing and managing your makeup collection.

Check out the interview:

1. What got you interested in developing a make up application for the smart phone? Share your story.

In my work life I always look at how I set up data to let is be easily accessed and used later. I find it hard to switch of that part of my brain and when I was cruising the internet looking for cosmetic reviews I noticed that most of the beauty bloggers were using a excel or Google Docs spreadsheet to keep a track of the makeup they already owned. It seemed not ideal as it was hard to link images (and beauty blogs are intrinsically image heavy), and not that easy to access on the go (ie in a shop). It seemed like an application that really called out for an app for phone/tablet.

2. How did you go about getting help getting an application like this developed? How many people helped with the overall creation of it?

Our immediate team is 2. We have preferred to keep the team small in the start and call in resources on as needs basis for different parts of the project – so our web developer is a 3rd party and so forth. All up probably close to 20 people have been involved in different capacities over the life of the project.

3. How have you marketed your application and what has been working well for you?

Facebook has been a great source of downloads for us as we can target the demographics and already ‘liked’ pages to achieve good target group. We have also found word of mouth is incredibly useful as most of our users are heavy social media users.

4. What allows your application to stand out from others in your niche? Have you found other competitors doing something similar?

We have built our app from the perspective of a user, so we have a really clean and useful user interface and are constantly working on making this more user friendly. Our competitors are primarily building from the perspective of brands and advertisers.
5. What are your future plans for 2014 and beyond?

We have a new smartphone version of our app coming out at the end of May with a new upgrades and hopefully a much smoother Android process, and have plans to upgrade to an optimized tablet version of our app in the future.
