FastPaleo is coming soon to your iPhone!! Last week, I submitted the FastPaleo iPhone app to Apple. The approval process usually takes 1-2 weeks, so while I can’t give an exact date, I can tell you that the app will be available on iTunes very soon.
It will be available for $0.99—the lowest price point possible on iTunes—and I would like to take a second to tell you what I plan to do with the money from the sales. The first is to continue to make the FastPaleo site a great paleo-primal recipe sharing site (it will ALWAYS be free). I have run the site on my own time and pocket money (a lot of it, lol) since we launched a little more than a year ago. Simply put, sales from the app will give me more time to make it better for you. I have a lot of ideas on how to do that that I’m really looking forward to making happen.
Also, 5% of all sales will go toward the foundation of a new non-profit I am launching, “JunkFreeKids.” JunkFreeKids will be dedicated to providing free healthy eating information, talks, and kids cooking workshops. As many of you know, I volunteer as a Big with Big Brothers Big Sisters, and have helped my Little and his family with healthy eating by cooking meals with them. This is both a passion of mine and something families desperately need. The 5% will go toward the building of the JunkFreeKids website and other requirements to launch the non-profit.
And, oh yeah, you get a SUUUUPER-DUUUUPER slick app!!
