Is AR Kit poised for a breakthrough?

Is augmented reality really going to be as big as Tim Cook thinks it is? At WWDC last year it wowed the audience and had people in a frenzy. Fast forward a few months and the reception ┬ánoticeably cooled after iOS 11 saw its public release. However, it received a shot in the arm this…

What is wrong with iTunes Connect?

What is wrong with iTunes Connect?

Before I begin a tirade, I want to make a few things clear. Being an Apple developer is great. I love the platforms and Apple’s dedication to continually improving them. They build awesome new features for us to implement in creative ways. I adore the user base who is willing to pay for quality software…

If Apple Made Your Toothbrush

If Apple Made Your Toothbrush

Toothbrushes are not sexy. They are extremely utilitarian and even with modern technological advances, the toothbrush hasn’t deviated much from it’s roots. Surely Jony Ive is sitting in his secret, hollowed out volcano / design studio crafting a revolutionary, magical new toothbrush made out of chamfered aluminum as we speak! Sadly, I don’t think that…

Over the past year and a half, I have become a┬ábig fan of podcasts. Mostly because I drive at least an hour and a half everyday. I found that I could not only entertain myself, but I could actually learn new things during my morning and evening commute. I have come to listen to many…

A Whole New Gold Rush

A Whole New Gold Rush

Call me naive – or worse – but I am pretty excited about the future being an Apple developer. This might seem kind of crazy considering iPhone sales are down and Wall Street is, of course, predicting Apple’s imminent demise (hint : they still had like $10 billion in profit.. I think they can make…

Caffiend : Year One

Caffiend : Year One

So while today obviously belongs to HBO (Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley premieres anyone?) I couldn’t help but write a quick thank you to everyone who has been involved in Caffiend over the past 365 days. One year ago today, day and date with the Apple Watch release, we released our little caffeine tracker into…
