What can be worse than reaching the golden hour of submitting your long-awaited iOS app to App Store and receiving a rejection letter afterwards? Not only morally - an app rejection means wasted time. It can take up to about two or three weeks while your app is under Apple's quality control. And if it gets rejected, you receive the response and have either to appeal to Apple Review Board or to make corrections (which takes time) and resubmit the app anyway (which takes more time)

How many software projects have you launched? Well, if you have reached the second one or more, you already know that estimation is a rather vague thing by itself. Neither the software company nor the client can exactly know how much time will be required and whether the budget is enough - of course if we stay away from mythic huge budgets, which can cover everything but virtually don't exist

Notifications rank amid the most widespread features in mobile apps. Whatever they may concern - a message or a comment in a social network, an update of an app, an announcement or a reminder - notifications are made to bring useful information to users in a convenient way.

Many business people don't fully understand the complexity of a software development process. It's natural, since specialized books about development are read by developers and other IT people, and many others might still be referring to a software project as ''coding'' or ''writing''. With better luck one might add 'designing' and 'testing'. Quite inaccurate

On June 2, 2014, Apple has announced the news that no one expected: a new object-oriented programming language - Swift.


What's good about it, how can it attract developers? Is it reasonable to follow all that hype about farewells to Objective-C and 'we need developers with 2-year experience in Swift'

Rarely does a new client of a software development company have a full specification of the future software product. Rarely do they know whether they need to create a specification, how comprehensive it has to be, and who will it actually be written for. Lack of project documentation means a flop. It takes developers' time for understanding - but it saves more eventually. A comprehensive technical document takes lots of efforts and money - and what if there is an inevitable change in requirements that comes to contradictions with the existing architecture of your app? More losses - that can and must be prevented
