Putting Placescore on Ice

Remember how I thought I’d release the new version of Placescore anytime soon?

Well, that’s not going to happen for now. I built the whole thing, and it’s impressive if I dare say so myself. It’s far better than Placescore was 10 years ago. It has a working user system, a somewhat complex server component, and it’s fun.

Unfortunately, I can’t come up with a pricing model that makes sense. My best idea was to add ads, but Google somehow doesn’t want me to. I get rejected from AdMob solely based on my personal data. I don’t know why; there doesn’t seem to be a way to find out, so I’m all out of luck on that front.

It is what it is. I’ve archived the project for now and might revisit it in the future, but right now, there are no plans to release it anytime soon. It was a great exercise, though. I learned quite a few substantial things while building this.
