Ways You Can Help

If you would like to help keep iOS Dev Break going, here are a few ways in which you can help:

Spread the Word
The simplest way is by getting the word out about iOS Dev Break. A tweet about the show in general or about an episode you particularly liked will help spread the word out about iOS Dev Break. Don’t forget to mention the show’s twitter username, @iOSDevBreak, so I’ll know that you helped promote the show!

Become a Supporter on Patreon
Another way is by visiting our Patreon page at https://www.patreon.com/iosdevbreak. I have greatly simplified the options for support — so much so that there is now only one level: one dollar! If you’ve already supported the show, I’d like to thank you very much for that and I hope the show and its content continues to live up to your expectations!

Buy an App!
If you don’t want to help on a continuous basis, the second way you can assist is by purchasing NineOneOne ~ one-touch emergency dialer. It’s a $0.99 US app that’s similar in concept to the SOS app on Apple Watch, but this is on the iPhone. It’s customizable so you can configure it to call any number you like, not just 911. This way you can support the show and its host on a one-time basis, and get something in return, or even if you just purchase it and immediately delete it, it still helps us out, so thanks in advance!

Brand Experience! – IDB029
