Ideal KidCalc Update Frequency?

September 1, 2009 Leave a comment

I am interested in your thoughts on how frequently you would like to receive updates to KidCalc.  The pace of development will generally remain as rapid as it has been, however, the frequency with which I submit updates to Apple for release to users is something that I can vary, and I am interested in your thoughts.

One alternative is to submit my updates to Apple whenever I complete a feature that I think kids would be eager to begin using.  This is what I have been doing so far, and it has resulted in updates being released roughly every two to three weeks. 

I have received a lot of email from users, the vast majority of which has been messages of thanks, and conveying jubilation over the updates.  However some users have indicated that the update frequency has been higher than they prefer.  Do you feel the same way?

The other alternative I have is to bundle features together into feature sets, and release updates only as frequently as every one, two, or three months.

I want to hear what you think. Should I update KidCalc monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly? Please add your comments to this post or email me directly at and tell me what the optimal update approach or frequency is from your perspective. 

I have a lot of features in the queue to be added to KidCalc, and I want to make sure to get them into your kids’ hands as soon as I can, without causing you frustration.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me.
