Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
The market didn't even exist 5 years ago. If someone had asked me in an interview then what would I be doing 5 years from now it would NOT have been "full time independent mobile app developer" it wasn't even on my radar. Will it exist in the same form 5 years from now? Hard to say. Though I'm watching my 4 year old right right now playing some educational game on the phone. These kids are going to grow up with mobile apps as a way of life. At home, in school, everywhere. Its only just beginning I think. I do think the focus will shift to more robust apps made by more "mainstream" institutions as a compliment to their other digital offerings rather than indie developers striking it rich (unless they have a REALLY great idea) Anyway Its fun being along for the ride yeah?
