We saw the request in https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/6d1b1l/ama_request_those_who_have_created_the_more/dhzxtb2/?context=3 and we are here to answer any questions you have!
We launched narwhal for reddit a couple years ago as a fresh design take on reddit for iOS 7. Since then, we've been improving it to be a gesture-based efficient and simple viewer of all reddit content
Hi guys! I gotta say that from all the reddit apps available, narwhal has become my favorite! You guys nailed with with features like gesture based options.
What do you see in the future? Are you guys thinking of expanding your portfolio of apps or just focus on nawwhal to make it even better?
Thanks for doing this AMA!
Thanks for being an awesome user of narwhal :)
We always have a ton of different ideas for apps, but we always just keep spending more time on narwhal. This has always been a nights and weekend sort of project for us outside our normal day job so its hard to fit in time for anything else besides improving narwhal.
Hopefully we will have some other apps in the future!
What was/is the most difficult part for you guys to get it up and running? Did you guys already have a ton of background in coding or app development when yall started? How many days do yall wait to pick off a scab?
The most difficult part was getting the experience right with the design and interactions. It is always a challenge to have an app that is simple to use, but powerful and easy to configure.
We both had a ton of design and development experience prior to starting. I actually used to work for Apple and we had both made other apps for clients in the past together.
Gotta let it fall off naturally!
