Indie Success

David Smith:

Widgetsmith has just achieved a remarkable milestone, surpassing 100 million downloads since its launch in September 2020. A number that I can’t really wrap my mind around. A number larger than the population of all but 14 countries (🤯).


The success of Widgetsmith was made possible by the amazing platform Apple has made and the amazing users it has attracted.


It took me a long time to get here, Widgetsmith was the 59th app I launched over 12 years, and there are no guarantees that anything we make will ever find its audience.

This is cool and all, but I wish underscore would take a few minutes to just reply with one liners to some of his support email for his other apps.

I’ve had multiple bug reports into him for Sleep++ for over 3 months without a single response.

Has the UI gotten any better since I last tried it? First release or so was really confusing. Honestly think he got lucky with timing.
