10 Ways to Sell Mobile Apps: An Interview With Rob Woodbridge and Untether.TV


It’s becoming increasingly difficult to sell your app given the sheer volume of apps in many of the app stores. Developers often don’t have time or don’t want to market their apps, and would probably rather spend time coding and developing the apps. But apps can be more than hobbies, they can be businesses, startups and potentially a source of retirement (not likely but we can all dream). In an interview with Rob Woodbridge at Untether.tv, we talk about 10 clear ways that developers can sell their mobile applications. I also talk a lot about the startup I’ve been working on, Pretzil. It’s a mobile app discovery network so everything ties in nicely.

Interview with Marc Gingras CEO of Tungle on Entrepreneurship and Smartphones


Marc Gingras is, simply put, an entrepreneur. Someone who finds the gaps in the way we work and fills them in a way that makes you wonder what you did before and why no one thought of it before. He’s also the founder and CEO of Tungle, an online meeting manager that makes it simple to schedule meetings, regardless of the calendaring system you and your invitees use — and now regardless of device you store on your hip.

You get a sense of what Marc is about almost immediately — he’s focused, determined and excited about what he’s doing and that excitement is viral just like his product. One of the things that stuck with me is what he terms the “Tungle Hierarchy of Needs” — you’ll have to watch to get all the details but, clearly, it is something that blew me away.

Full disclosure on this one — when you get two Canadians talking technology you can count on an animated and passionate conversation, second only to hockey.
