One thought on “Episode 114 – I Can Eat More Salt Than You

  1. Troy Hannah

    It seems like stickers are actually turning out to be more popular than I thought they would be (even MTJC has talked about them in the past few podcasts, and not in a negative way either). I know in Asia they have been a huge part of messaging apps for years but when it was announced at WWDC I didnt think it would matter much in a North American context. But I am seeing them used more often as people learn that they are now a thing in iOS 10 and I find myself using them too, which I didn’t expect to happen.

    It isn’t just stickers either but other iMessage apps as well. I can see a lot of everyday casual users actually getting a lot of use out of small, lightweight, in-iMessage apps. For developers it could be a short term boost in revenue while there is still a novelty factor about it all. Long term it probably won’t help with the monetization issue but it does seem like this is where a lot of apps are going to be headed.

    What do ya’ll think, do you see these stickers and iMessage apps becoming a big thing, or ending up as more of a fad? Have any of you tried to create an iMessage app, or have any plans to?
