#198: Craig Hockenberry (part 2)


We are joined again today by Craig Hockenberry of The Iconfactory, makers of Twitterrific, Linea, great icons, and more. Today, we continue talking to Craig about Project Phoenix, The Iconfactory’s Kickstarter to relaunch Twitteriffic for Mac. We also discuss the “pro software” problem on the iPad, what makes a good Kickstarter video, and pricing models for iOS apps.
