The Chinese Mothership

Thanks!  And New Version coming Soon!

A few days ago, I asked if you had media connections to help with 100 Cameras in 1.  And now we have stories on Wired, The LA Times, TUAW, AppAdvice, Toucharcade, and many more!  And this was in addition to the Gizmodo / Kotaku reviews…  Thanks very much! You guys rock!  

This helped us to finally pass Camera+, which is quite an accomplishment!  BTW, I keep advising that you pick up Camera+ too since my friend Lisa made it… support your local internet artist! 🙂

Even though these ratings vacillate, you might be interested to know that we are in the top 0.16% of all the 300,000 apps in the store.  Amazing!  In the US, we’ve stayed in the top 10 all week for photography.  For that category in other countries, we hit #3 in the Netherlands, #8 in Australia, #9 in Brazil, #3 in Finland, #8 in France, #4 in Argentina, #5 in Belgium, #7 in India, and #6 in New Zealand!  Thanks countries of the world!  We’re working on some amazing updates with secret surprises… stay tuned.

Oh China, let’s be friends!

As opposed to the stats above, in China, we are a depressing #268. Oh China, why oh why? We’ve been such good friends, and I’ve tried to take such pretty pictures of you, China. Don’t be like that. Maybe I just need a Chinese version of the app, but I’m not sure how to do that.

Even worse, in Russia, we are #310. Was it something I said? Oh China and Russia… I don’t wanna fight… can’t we just

Daily Photo – The Chinese Mothership

Look at this magical place in Beijing… it’s on the edge of belief.

I could hardly fathom the nature of this place. I expected the lights to appear on the grid with melodic tones a mystical, alien language, like in Close Encounters. But none of that happened… So I just stood there for a long time, thinking about how incredible this place was… and took my time, setting up my system for a fitting photograph.

Remember when we were kids, and we never finished our food, even under the threat of starving children in China? Now, I say to my kids, you better eat your food, or else Chinese children will grow up and create an economic powerhouse. Well too late for that!

This is the amazing National Centre for the Performing Arts, or as I like to say, the ????? — I find that rolls of the tongue a bit easier.
