Freddy Fox Lost His Conkers - now FREE on Android!

Well it had to happen - the sales have been so fantastic, thought it was time to go FREE. It was a really touching moment when the app appeared on pirate sites within hours of upload to Google Play Store (yay - love Google!).
At least this way everyone can get a legit download and leave us feedback/reviews on PlayStore.
Thanks to anyone who did download a legit copy ;-)

Freddy Fox goes to town is progressing - will post some updates soon…

The book that started it all…

Thought I'd take some pictures of the original book that started this whole process. Made in 2014 for my daughter's 2-year birthday, we had great fun searching out the conkers in the old-school paper version.
At some point I'm going to get this for sale on Amazon's Kindle self publishing system. I still like the idea of paper books. They're durable, but also disposable when things get spilled on them ;-)
Thanks to everyone who's downloaded the app so far…

Freddy Fox Lost His Conkers - on Amazon as well!

After some fun proving that I own the copyright to my own artwork (or at least proving it enough to satisfy Amazon) - we are now on the Amazon App store too!
So, now all of you with 7" Kindle Fires that you got for you little ones can have a go finding the conkers along with everyone else - Hooray!

Now iPhone too!

Originally we created Freddy Fox Lost His Conkers as an iPad app, but loads of friends pointed out they only have iPhones (with huge screens ;-) and wanted to play the game too. So, apologies for the borders, but an update to the app means you can now play on iPhone as well - hooray!
We'll make sure Freddy Fox Goes to town adapts better to different screen dimensions ;-)

Reset the conkers

Someone asked me today - "can you reset the conkers, so you can find them again?" - Yes you can! On the start screen use the circle arrow symbol to reset the conker count…

Freddy Fox Lost His Conkers - now on Google Play!

Hooray - we're on Google Play now too!

Hope all our friends with Android devices will enjoy our Freddy Fox Adventures.

Have to say that was a lot more straightforward than the iOS App Store. 

For a start, didn't have to supply endless versions of the app icon (which I'm sure Apple could perfectly well do themselves with some small bit of scripting at their end).

Plus - for an app demo (video) - just have to provide link to YouTube video (well, it is Google after all!). Even now, I still haven't got a demo video on iOS app store listing because I have to supply in specific sizes and formats for each device type and I'm still trying to work out quickest way to do this.

Thanks to anyone who's downloaded our app - now onto Freddy Fox Goes To Town ;-)

Freddy Fox Lost His Conkers Gameplay Demo2

Apologies - made the first demo really quickly and forgot to include the touch cursor/icon overlay showing what I was doing - hopefully was clear enough - but just in case here's another.

App demo video

Uploaded a demo of the some of the app elements (as I forgot to add a preview in the app store media, and don't want to do a new version so soon ;-)
Gives a taste of my daughters charming narration, touchable page elements and, the main point of the story - collecting Freddy's lost conkers!

Freddy Fox now on the iOS App Store - Hooray!

Hooray - we're on the iOS app store today!

I was worried going through the submission process (everything I'd read said it was a lot of bother), but as they say - "First time's the worst", so hopefully with this one under my belt, it will be easier next time ;-)

Hope everyone enjoys the app and leaves us nice reviews.

I'll try and make sure this blog gets regular updates about progress on the 2nd app. In the mean time I'd better start reading through the submission guidelines for Google Play…

Freddy Fox Adventures Blog Start

The Freddy Fox Adventures are a series of books and apps developed by myself with help from my little girl.
Based around our main character Freddy Fox, but always involving help a cast of his friends, family and helpful Wiggly Wood residents.
Originally planned as a series of books, I got distracted with the idea of turning them into apps for my daughter to play with. So the first book and app ( mostly the app ) have taken a while to complete.
We're hoping 2019 will see us catch up a bit…
