Create a forum topic, instead of posting a comment to the guidelines.

I have my first app in iTunes.
It's called "Gas By Numbers" (a gas mileage calculator) and it's currently free.
I would still love to have my app rated, but so far, no one did :-(

I didn't really know if this appropriate in this forum, so if an admin can let me know, I would be glad. If it's not ok, I'll remove this post. I didn't know how to put an instructable for programming iOS together, but learning to program was the challenge I gave myself from last October. So it took me about 6 months from learning Objective-C to the finally published app.

You'll get more views if you post an actual forum topic about it, and even more views if you wrote up an instructable on how you made the app.

I know about the thing with writing up a project, but programming the app was quite extensive. So I don't know how to put together an instructable for it. If you have an idea I would probably consider doing it. But it touches on so many topics...

But what did you mean with posting a separate forum topic?

Kiteman Mike734 years ago
Click on the large orange words "free stuff" above, then look to the right and click the "new topic" button.

That will start a brand new forum topic for you to tell people about your app, and you can include screenshots to show folk what it's like.

Thanks Kiteman. I'll post a new thread tonight :-)
Let's see if I get a rating for my app.

I am looking for a free anime costume for a woman of the size 38 (European size) or for a template so that I can make my own. I really want to make my own kimono as well, but I don't know where I have to get started.
Thanks to the helps and tips in advance ;D
If you really want free stuff you should try freecycle.org It is a group dedicated to keeping things out of the landfill by giving it to other who can still get use out of it. I have gotten computers, televisions, graphing calculators and lots of other great stuff. You simply go to their website put in your local area and it directs you to local yahoo freecycle groups.

 IMO there should be country categories inside this section.

canada, US, europe, asia, australia... etc
You can and should use "tags" for those things.  Any kind of system like this relies on the person posting to be clear and accurate.  You can guess for yourself how successful that's likely to be :-/

I'm from the Hamilton,Ontario,Canada area have 300' of  oak flooring still has some nails in the strips but it still needs to be clean and sanded  if you live in this area need it gone by Wednesday ,come quick before its gone
.  You will probably get a much better response if you will start a new topic.

I live in Newport Beach, California on a 25 foot sail boat. I need a bigger boat. Very very much. Please Can some one sale me a 30+ sailboat for one dollar. Is there someone out there that can help this water lover - surfer - sailer? eluxur@hotmail.com 562-608-7336
. There is at least one iBle on getting boats for free/cheap. IIRC, the author is Tim Anderson. If you can't find it, let us know.
It appears as though there is misunderstanding from most of the posters as to the purpose of this forum topic. *sigh*

I'd keep well away from www.lotsoffree.com and such sites unless you really love spam. You can easily spot dodgy sites when you click the about us button and find absolutely no info and the only way to contact is via the site. This is only my opinion and please don't let me stop you from checking out the site, But I know to my cost that there is no such thing as something for nothing, there's always a cost somewhere down the line.
