It has been five years since Charango Master was published in play store. I had started playing Charango a year before and had gotten tired of carrying around a book of chords every time I had to play somewhere. After unsuccessfully looking for an app to replace my book, I decided to develop my own app. With very little knowledge in OOP, I finished the app in a month. Then I spent a month creating the impressive database of over 2000 chords. Since then, I have created a new app every year, venturing into different niches and testing different technologies.
During those five years, I have gone from a novice developer to an experienced developer. My apps have helped me in several ways, including getting my current job. But all personal development aside, how have the apps performed in the last 5 years? Here are 5 charts that can answer that question:
Can’t wait and see how things will develop in 2020. From the development side, the plan for this year is at least one update per app. The major project is a complete rewrite of Charango Master, though that will probably not be ready in 2020.
