My first 3 months on the iMessage App Store


After WWDC 2016, I wanted to launch an iMessage app and I had the idea to automatically create GIFs from already existing photos, basically one tap to share a GIF from inside iMessage (Momento)…

…As you can see the iMessage App Store was very promising at the beginning but nowadays it is somehow abandoned. This led me to release the app as an iOS app with an iMessage extension, and it is much more successful than just the iMessage app… More at Medium.

The original app seemed to have a good purpose, but I would guess that the whole iMessage section of the App Store is not a money maker, and especially so the sticker sets.
