Jonathan Daley's Blog
I am a game developer and freelance app developer. I have a passion for game design, programming, writing, and story-telling.
I have self-published several apps for iOS and Windows Phone. And I recently launched my first publically available game entitled “Jumping Bllux" for iPhone®, iPad®, & iPod touch®.
Today (Oct. 1, 2013) I created a game inspired by recent events, entitled "The Cliffs of Fiscal & Budget." The game is free-to-play online, and was created in Unity 3D.
I recently found myself thinking of specific “tools” which were a requirement for my releasing my first publicly available game and starting on my next one. This list is primarily targeted at independent developers, but anyone can benefit.

The cloud storage feature sounds very nice especially if it will let you load save game files onto other Xboxes, instead of having to copy files onto a memory card or USB stick.
