Welcome to this Indie Dev interview with Jacob from RevenueCat!
Jacob’s first company was featured in TechCrunch while he was still at college. Then after a stint at Apple he moved on to lead the development team at Elevate which went on to be Apple App of the Year.
He’s now running RevenueCat which you should definitely check out if app store subscriptions are anywhere in your future.
