Inspiration Comes in Many Forms

The Pixtant App was our 1st foray into the Mobile App world and it all started a little over a year ago with a simple text message:

The texts that started it all...

This simple text message conversation has brought us to where we are today.  All it took was two people sharing a similar desire to enter an industry despite having limited tech experience to draw from.  It didn’t bother us that we knew next to nothing about mobile applications–we were ready to jump in head first.

We have learned more about the mobile app industry in the past year than we could have ever imagined.  The key to learning so much, so fast was putting ourselves in a position where we did not have the ability to take it slow – we put ourselves in a sink-or-swim situation…. and we learned to swim quickly.

Our goal is to help others who are considering a similar path and perhaps help alleviate some of the headaches that are inevitably going to occur while starting a business. Many of these lessons we learned the hard way and we’ve had to adjust, make difficult decisions and move forward.  All of this has made us better equipped to handle the challenges we currently are facing as we continue to evolve and work to build the Pixtant App Empire.

It’s about pivoting to capture momentum gained and moving swiftly to take advantage of inspiration as it occurs.

We’ll take you behind-the-scenes for a real-time look at building successful mobile apps as we work.

This will be an honest and upfront look at one of the fastest growing industries from two mobile appreneurs who jumped in head first only one year ago.
