At the time of the writing, speaking about apps is just as normal as speaking about everything else which belongs to our daily life, but when I initially started delving into iOS application development there was not much fuss about it as there is nowadays.
It was a new thing, the first iPhone was unveiled by Steve Jobs, then CEO of Apple, on January 9, 2007, and released on June 29, 2007, but it seemed impossible they could change the market the way they did.
During the following years, it has become quite common to tell someone: “There is an app for that!” which was Steve Jobs anticipated wish at the iPhone start-up.
More than that, in a way Apple – and the rest of IT companies involved in this process – managed to uplift mobile software from the status of nice-toy to something that can really help people in everyday tasks, especially when they are on the move.
Perceiving this change I felt pushed in taking my time to learn the iOS development process, the Objective-C language, the iOS Design Patterns and so on, and I ended up having currently some applications hosted on the App Store on my behalf, and some other on behalf of people or companies who hired me to build their ideas into apps.
Quite a number of other applications are not even there, because they have been deployed ad hoc only on dedicated devices, and due to NDA (non disclosure agreements) I can’t even name them here.
I get always a nice feeling when I get into the process of creating an application from scratch, hence if you are interested in sharing your ideas for a new project, feel free to contact me.
Here follows a list of some of the applications currently available on the App Store, the link brings you on their dedicated pages:
