Individual Lifetime Licenses Are Now Available!

I’m excited to announce that we now offer lifetime licenses for all of our current Cobalt Apps products! The All Access Lifetime license, which includes access to ALL of our products, current and future, has been available for quite some time now, but now you can purchase lifetime licenses for individual products as well. This means, for example, that if you use our Dynamik Website Builder theme for a lot of your DEV projects, but maybe don’t currently have a need for ALL of our tools, you can now purchase (or upgrade to, in this case) Dynamik Website Builder Lifetime. This will give you a Dynamik license that provides support and updates for the life of the theme, with no more need to renew a yearly subscription. This can be especially useful in cases where you use one of our tools for client sites where you know you’ll be leaving that tool on their site, but don’t want to have to worry about renewing your license each year so they can continue to receive updates.

Genesis DevKit: The Ultimate Genesis Child Theme Development Plugin

That’s a BIG claim, I know, and not one I take lightly. Genesis is one of the most prominent and trusted WP Theme Frameworks out there today with a massive following of both users and 3rd party developers. I’ve been one of such developers for several years now and am keenly aware of the needs of both newcomers and seasoned freelancers alike. It’s a passion of mine, if not a bit of an obsession. 🙂 Read more “Genesis DevKit: The Ultimate Genesis Child Theme Development Plugin”

Introducing The Freelancer DevKit Plugin

If you’re at all familiar with my products then you know that I try to find a solid balance between “user-friendly” and “best-practices”. My goal is generally to provide tools that make WordPress Web Development more accessible to a larger set of users, while at the same time keeping the end results professional and high quality. I always keep in mind the fact that there’s a good chance that either a business or a client will be on the other end of what our members produce with our tools. So anything less that top-notch is unacceptable. Read more “Introducing The Freelancer DevKit Plugin”

So let’s not waste anytime and get straight to the good stuff! Read more “Introducing Extender Pro And A More Cohesive Set Of WP DEV Tools”

Cobalt All Access Lifetime Is Now Available

Back in May of this year we launched Cobalt All Access, a bundle that includes ALL of our products, current AND future, as well as a single unlimited license that can activate everything we offer. At the time we offered it as a Lifetime license, but only for a limited time, and then we switched it over to a yearly subscription at a reduced price.

Cobalt Apps 2018 Development Roadmap

The following is a kind of “moving target” development roadmap for Cobalt Apps in 2018, with the product ideas and updates being pretty concrete, but the order and timeframes left for organic execution. So let’s get to it and lay out the key goals for the Cobalt Apps freelance WordPress developer product lineup in 2018.

First, A Few Points About Some Primary Goals

When I first started out in the WordPress Theme and Plugin dev business I was primarily focused on a specific product. Yet over the years this has morphed into more of a specific area of WP software development, with the freelance WordPress developer as my target audience, and therefore my products lining up with their specific needs. But in the transition I’ve found that many of my products overlap in certain areas or share several features, making it a bit difficult at times to pick the right tool for the job or to know which tool does what. So one of the primary goals behind my 2018 development efforts is to more clearly distinguish my various products so that few features overlap and few tools negate the need for another.

Introducing Instant IDE And A Notable New Dynamik Update

It’s been a busy couple of months to say the least, but I have some exciting new tools and features to show for it! So without further ado let’s get straight to it…

Instant IDE And The Instant IDE Manager Plugin

Last month we started beta testing my latest dev tool called Instant IDE. This is a powerful web-based development environment that works completely outside/independent of WordPress, giving you full control over your WP-powered websites. It’s actually so independent that you can use it on ANY website, not just those running WordPress. Having said that, our target market has always been WordPress freelance developers and that hasn’t changed with Instant IDE. And that’s where the Instant IDE Manager Plugin comes in.

Instant IDE: Our Latest Product Is Ready For Beta Testing

For those of you who have not yet heard about this latest Cobalt Apps DEV tool I’m excited to share it with you today! It’s called Instant IDE and it’s our first platform-independent developer tool offered on CobaltApps.com! If you’re familiar with our current product line you can think of Instant IDE as Themer Pro, but WordPress-independent and massively refined. It turns any website into a full-blown professional development environment (IDE) in a an instant! And it’s now ready for BETA testing, so who would like to play with this thing and help me work out the bugs and get it ready for prime time?!
