Feathers: initial reactions
Within two hours of its release, my new iPhone app, Feathers, shot into the Top 25 in the Social Networking category in the App Store. Thank you to everyone who helped by tweeting, blogging, and – of course – buying the app.

So what do people think of Feathers?
❤ from Inspired Magazine
Within days of release, the lovely folks at Inspired Magazine included Feathers in their post titled 10 Beautifully Designed iPhone [UI]tilities alongside such greats as Tweetie 2, Pastebot, and Convert.
Needless to say, I'm honored to have Feathers featured next to such greats.
I was floored by the initial response and the outpouring of love on Twitter. Here's a smattering of the initial tweets.
Love the humor and appeal to human emotion in @aral 's new app http://feathersapp.com/. Smart design.

Since I'm a one-person band, I can use all the help I can get to spread the word about Feathers. If you haven't already, here are a few things you can do that would really help out:
- Leave Feathers a lovely rating and review on the iTunes App Store
- Rate Feathers on oneforty.com
- Tell the world you use Feathers on iusethis.com
And, if you know any review sites, or magazines, etc., it would be lovely to see reviews of Feathers (I've submitted it to several and I'm waiting for responses from them.)
Finally, the introductory sale ends this Friday so please tell your friends.
Thank you all again for your wonderful outpouring of support and your wonderful feedback. I'm so happy to hear that so many of you are enjoying Feathers.
