About

Hi, thanks for visiting. I’m Scott Kantner.

The thing I love to do most is design and build apps, and my goal for everything I build is to help someone become better at what they do.

Others have told me that my apps are elegantly designed and simple to use, and that’s always great to hear, but compliments are not what I’m after. What I really want is for as many people as possible to benefit from the apps themselves.

And that’s the challenge. We indie developers know how hard it is to get attention for our apps. We all know that having a great app in the App Store just isn’t enough. And yet relatively few of us know how to get our message out well enough to make a big impact on others or have a sustainable business.

90 Minute Indie journals my progress toward both. I write about both technical and business issues. If you are trying to build a meaningful, sustainable software business, then this blog is for you. As I work toward building a successful app business, I share the details with you – the trials, the tribulations, and the triumphs – what works, and what does not. I am totally confident there is a way for us to be successful as indie app developers – we simply need to crack the code (no pun intended).

Please feel free to sign up for my newsletter in the upper right corner of this page. You will also receive the latest blog posts and access to any free eBooks I make available.

The “90 minute” thing comes from the fact that I have a full-time day job serving as CTO for an IT firm. My app building happens in dedicated 90 minute chunks either before work, before bedtime, or on weekends.

OnStage Technologies is my software company. If you’re a musician, I invite you to check out the apps I have there.

My first computer was a TRS-80 model I. Mine looked just like this one:

Please free to contact me with questions, comments, or just to say “Hi.”

The logo for my site was designed by Joe Cieplinski, and I think he did an awesome job. So why does the rest of my site look so Spartan? Well, 90 minutes a day only goes so far…
