Success story! Made an app
I've been taking Treehouse courses, put together what I learned, and I made my first, very own app!
It's called OddFortune. It's a fortune cookie app that aims to give odd and amusing fortunes. Users can also submit fortune ideas that might appear in the app with a credit line if they're accepted.
Here is the link
And so that this doesn't turn into an advertisement, here is what I put together.
Naturally the animation I did by taking my own photos and stringing them together as the Crystal Ball app does. And I learned to incorporate Parse as the advanced self-destruct app does so that I can load new fortunes every week without updating the app each time.

Congratulations Mathew! Great job!
Can you share some more details about your learning journey that might help and encourage others? How much many hours did you dedicate per week to learning? At what point did you feel comfortable to build your own app?
Congrats! I wish I was at your skill level already :)
One very small critic: Your facebook Icon looks like twitter and twitter looks like facebook in terms of colors :P
Great job Matthew! Looking forward to having the same fortune as you soon enough ;) !

This is awesome, Matthew! Thanks for sharing. I love that you incorporated Parse to give yourself more flexibility (and make your app better) in the future. :)
Great job, definitely an inspiring story. Keep at man!
