About Mustache Bash:

UPDATE: The two-man team over at Pixtant decided to create a Udemy video tutorial that shows exactly how they reskinned the Mustache Bash source code. If you’re not an expert iOS programmer, then be sure to get it.

I’m finally doing it. I’ve debated the decision, but a friend talked me into selling my Mustache Bash iOS app source code. This is the first time I’ve ever done this!

Mustache Bash has been good to me, and if you choose to buy a Single or Unlimited license, the code will probably be good to you too. A lot of new developers have been focusing on games, and missing out on a huge opportunity. Photo apps have major staying power. The Photo & Video category is less competitive in games, so it’s easier to make a splash. and having 3-4 can help diversify your app portfolio and beef up your revenues.


What I Love About This iOS App Source Code

  • $12,500+ in revenue!!!
  • Over 745,000 downloads and counting…
  • Top 100 Overall app in 44 countries (Top 10 Overall in 3 countries; #1 Photo app in 2 countries)
  • Over 800 reviews/ratings with an average of 4.5 stars for all versions

Mustache Bash was the very first app that I released back in April 2012. It was a success from the beginning and has gone through 4 updates. People love mustaches. Go figure!

I’ve also reskinned Mustache Bash twice (for Christmas Pictures and my ugly app). Working with a mature, clean code is much faster and less expensive than developing from scratch.

Reasons Why Reskins of Mustache Bash Are Easy

  1. The SDKs are already integrated. Mustache Bash has Flurry (tracking and AppSpot) Revmob, Playhaven, and Sincerely Ship, which adds postcard printing and earns me commissions.
  2. The underperforming SDKs have already come and gone, so there’s no guesswork. I took out Chartboost because they’re discontinuing non-game support, and I took out Mobclix because they owe me over $2200 and haven’t paid a cent since June of last year.
  3. Twitter and Facebook are already integrated for maximum viral potential. Facebook tie-ins have added some incredible value to Mustache Bash: Unlock Free Pack for Sharing, Share to FB, Pick Profile Pic of FB Friend, and Invite FB friends.
  4. The UI is “vanilla.” You can leave it alone because you only need a few design assets for a reskin: loading screen, home screen, app icon, 2 buttons (email support & theme), and .pngs for image packs.
  5. The code is clean. Since version 1.0, Mustache Bash has seen 6 more updates! This isn’t some untested, buggy code. It works really well, and supports iPhone 5 and iOS 6.
  6. Reskins require only 10-15 hours of development. Seriously. If you’re anything like me, you don’t have huge budgets for your iOS app soure code projects, and you’re trying to release apps as quickly as possible. Quick and cheap is good.


How to Make Your Money Back

☞ 7 in-app purchases offer steady revenue. Check out the numbers from App Annie.

The Revmob and Playhaven interstitials IDs are already set up in the best places. Check out the screenshot from my Revmob dashboard.

The Playhaven More Apps plug-in with the red number notification attracts the attention on the Home screen.

Unlocking a secret pack gives users an incentive to invite Facebook friends and drive downloads.

Local notifications pull users back into the app.
The minimal effort and investment needed to reskin (and cheap, highly rated Photoshop specialists on oDesk) mean that you can get your app in the black quickly.
The buttons and UI are fully localized in Simplified and Traditional Chinese!
You basically get 2 apps in 1 because you can create the premium version with all the in-app purchase unlocked for next to nothing and get a nice extra bump with paid downloads. Check out Mustache Bash Luxury Edition.

Exactly What To Do for Your Reskin

  1. Pick a cool niche or theme. The possibilities are endless: make-up, hairstyles, superheroes, hippie, gangster.
  2. Make a list of funny features related to the theme that people can layer on top of their pictures.
  3. Divide these features up into 8 packs.
  4. Give all the features and packs goofy names.
  5. Hire a Photoshop specialist on oDesk to create all the .png image files for you, as well as a new app icon, Home and Loading screens (and all related “slices”), features gallery button, and email share button.
  6. Hire a cheap programmer to swap out all the image files for you and replace all the old IDs with the new ones.
  7. Be sure to ask the programmer to put the new name and links into all the strings and local notifications.
  8. Run through your normal testing procedures and pre-submission checklist.

Pretty easy, right? The User Interface is this iOS app source code has always been pretty straightforward.

More Ideas for Your Reskin…

  • Add even more image packs as in-app purchases.
  • Add Instagram (super easy) in the Social toolbar.
  • Make the app universal to target iPad users.
  • Add a soundtrack (for in-app purchase).
  • Add a borders or captions pack (for in-app purchase).

How much is it?

You have two options.

$79 gets you a Single Use license (meaning that you can make 1 app). Building this app yourself would take 270 development hours, not to mention the six weeks of waiting for the code to be finished. You’re not just buying a monetization model. You’re also buying time. That’s why reskinning apps is so important: you don’t have to wait like you would for custom builds.

If you want to do more than one reskin, you can get a major discount: a Multi Use license is $99. I know everyone’s on a different budget, but if you can swing it, then this license can definitely help take your app business to a new level of profitability. You won’t find a better photo booth source code at this price.

Choose the license below that works for you, and send payment.

As soon as I receive confirmation, I will email you the link. You can then download the .zip file from Dropbox.

    Hi there,

    When will this code be iOS 10 ready?
    Thank you.


    is there an option for single user license for both android and ios?


    Hi quick question is this code 64bit compliant as well? If not is there a chance you will add it? I will still purchase it after you make it 64 bit. Infact I bought the original version prior to ios8. So I have it with me. But if you make this 64 bit I will still buy the updated version. thanks


    Hi Austin,

    I’m interested in purchasing the multi use licence for Mustache Bache for iOS. It says in writing in the body of page that the Multi Use license is $479 whereas in the area above the “Add to Cart” it indicates that the price for multi use licence is $99.

    1) Can you please clarify which price it is?

    2) Can you please provide the multi use licence agreement.

    Thank you!
