[prMac.com] Zapresic, Croatia - iPhone apps are for some people hobby, for others fun or job, but for us they mean life. Literally. As u probably know from media, situation in our country is insufferable, so we've decided in search for a better life, to create an application that would be our ticket out of here. It may sound pathetic, but that's our reality.
Because of general poverty and great desire for participation in Apple community, we decided to take drastic measures. Ironically, the only way to help others with our app was to begin with a theft...
We sat by the candle one evening (during power outage) and made a plan, respecting Robin Hood's spirit inside our hearts, and agreed that if we had to steal, we'd steal from the worse! The great plan was an alienation of 1 iMac computer and 1 iPhone device from hated capitalistic symbol- a McDonald's restaurant! We would like to keep the details of that action for ourselves for obvious reasons. Point was not to hurt anyone in that theft, but accidentally there were two victims worth mentioning - one cheeseburger and one middle portion of French fries.
Having successfully avoided the chase for underpaid laborers working on student contracts, it was time to start working. For a long time, we had second thoughts about whether to employ an Indian developer and enjoy the charm of broken English or hiring a local one with an inferiority complex - just so that we can control him more easily. Naturally, we have chosen the latter option.
Six long months of work followed, accompanied by the lovely rumbling of diesel generator which we used to charge the iPhones, looking forward to every testing of the application in progress. 130 galons of fuel later, the last bug was fixed. We were ready to show the Soundline to the world, the application developed with love and passion for music and better life which has been made as an "hommage" to all those (im)perfect songs we sang in long sleepless nights while whipping the programmer and thinking about better life in the west.
Therefore, support our escape to the better life. The ticket to London has never been more expensive.
We will bring the developer along.

Durnk Porductions started as a small project, we joined to give the world simple yet brilliant apps. As the market capabilities grow, we started investing as much time we have in this project. Most of our apps are lifestyle category (because drinking is kind of lifestyle) and we thought of having really simple apps. But at this time this is not what market wants. So, in less than 2 months we started working on complicated combined web and social media iOS apps that are yet simple to use. And with great success! Great part of experience we developed was working with mobile advertising and social media advertising. We're not experts yet, but have learned valuable lessons in real time and would be glad to share it with fellow developers. Copyright (C) 2011 Drunk Porductions. All Rights Reserved.
