I love technology podcasts, and subscribe to several of them. With my long commute I honestly don’t know how I would live without them. The Windows Developer Show, .NET Rocks, MS Dev Show, Windows Weekly and Entreprogrammers are some of my favorites (some of which I’ve even had the pleasure of being a guest on 1 2 3). AppBizDev is another podcast which belongs on the list of my favorite shows. But unfortunately there hasn’t been a new episode of AppBizDev in a little over a year.
AppBizDev is a podcast devoted to the business of building apps for Windows & Windows Phone. The hosts Alan Mendelevich and Ben Riga always had great insight on how to successfully promote and monetize your apps. Unfortunately both of them just haven’t had enough time to record a new show in over a year. When I met Alan out at Build this year one of the first things I asked him was when the podcast would be making a comeback.
Well today the AppBizDev podcast is finally returning in a way which I never would’ve expected. Ben and Alan have decided to hand over the keys to the podcast to myself and Robert Shurbet. The four of us just recorded a passing of the torch episode, which is now available here.
Robert and I have big shoes to fill, but we’re really excited to be taking the reins of the podcast, and are already planning out which guests we would like to have on early next year. We will have a lot to talk about, I personally think 2015 will be a huge year for Windows/Windows Phone developers with all the announcements of Windows 10 coming in January, and I’m sure Build 2015 will be very exciting.
As I mention in the show one of the regular features of the AppBizDev podcast is the ‘under the radar app.’ Do you have a Windows or Windows Phone app that you’ve been trying to promote, but haven’t been gaining much traction? Reach out to me (email rob [dot] irving [at] catchyagency [dot] com) or Robert (email robert [at] catchyagency [dot] com), and tell us about your app and how you’ve been trying to promote it and we may feature your app on the show and award you with a pile of AdDuplex credits.
