Great article, I wish I had this advice before I started my app.

Thanks for your kind feedback 🙌🏻. It's one of those situations where you read up on it and think "ah yea sounds logical". Unfortunately, app development is similar to software development in general but with its own perks.

It's easy to think: I'll give it a go and it will be fine. But TBH I had my share of fails. Also, diving into mobile app platforms was really eye-opening on what's possible and what's not.

It took me about 5 weeks to learn how to program the logic for my first iOS utility app back in the day, and another 5 resolving bugs, memory leaks, and delivering it to the App Store (almost banged my head against the wall).

All the best with Ara. It's an awesome idea. A tough one, but awesome. The hardest paths often let you learn the most, so bear with it and keep learning 💪🏻🔥👨🏻‍💻
