I thought it would be nice to have a “year in review” thread for 2013. That way, at the end of 2014, we can all look back and laugh (or cry, such as the case may be).
For Antair (my company), 2013 was an average year in terms of revenue. We’re down a few percentage points over 2012, but we’re up significantly over 2011, which was a terrible year. Most of our revenue in 2013 was a split between our various mobile apps, and a few consulting projects. March was the strongest month. November was the weakest.
In terms of products, our iOS and Android mobile apps continue to replace the revenue that was dominated by BlackBerry only a few years ago. This year, our new releases included Essential Voice Recorder for Android, Uberdeck (our first SaaS web app), and several variations of existing mobile apps.
Including new apps and updates to existing apps, we’ve had 42 releases this year, not including Uberdeck, which runs through several updates per week.
We ‘officially’ retired about 3 products. It usually takes a while for me to get around to admitting that a product has run its course; all three of these were ‘effectively’ retired long before I got around to pulling them from all channels.
We completed several client projects - both for iOS and Android. All of these were under NDAs, so I won’t be able to provide any more details.
Going into 2014, we now have a little over a dozen products on the market, including mobile apps, and Uberdeck.
Aside from Uberdeck, which is being worked on continuously, going into 2014, we have one web app in development, two mobile apps (iOS and Android), and two client projects (iOS and Android).
