Show Notes

Striving for perfection when it comes to your app design and its functionality takes passion as, just like success, it cannot be done overnight. Our guest for today is Anthony Keane, the founder of Gneo, an app that was picked as Editor’s Choice just after a week of their launch and hailed as one of the best apps for 2013 just two months down the road. Anthony’s zeal to create the best app for his users shines through these recognition’s and can serve as an inspiration for those who are true believers of their work.

Listen in as we cover the following highlights in this episode:

  • How Anthony’s background as a management consultant in London and Dublin influenced the methodology of organization unique to Gneo and how they decided on this approach,
  • A discussion about the quadrant of organizing priorities used in this app: managing tasks by level of urgency and importance,
  • Their unorthodox way of coming up with theirapp designs, from the three main buttons to the secondary features and the popular joystick,plus the functionalities that they were hesitant in letting go of,
  • How they arrived with their current price point and their approach in getting press, and
  • Using incubators, bootstrapping the project and how it was working with his spouse. 

Anthony’s conviction is something to be envied about and he shares to us where his firm beliefs come from. This could be contagious so listen in as this is a good virus to have.
