Unfortunately on the weekend my iOS app in review Mirror 7 was rejected. I won’t go into the details, it was rejected with some pretty fair reasons and won’t ever appear on iTunes.
Mirror 7 wasn’t an amazing, knock your socks off app. It was what I believe was a well executed simple app to familiarise myself with iOS app development and deployment, implement a few cocoa pods and have some fun manipulating the input from the camera (zoom).
Rejection is hard, plain and simple. I spent more time than I want to tally up building this app as I was starting from scratch with Objective C and the iOS SDK. It was a hard slog at times, especially with a young family and a demanding full time job.
On the bright side I at least learnt some new skills and gained some appreciation of what is needed to make a great app for iOS.
So that others can learn from what I built, I’ve open sourced the app on GitHub and for more details checkout the marketing site. Feel free to tweet me any questions or comments about the app and iOS development.
