Independent Developer of iOS @ (HIDDEN)
August 01, 2015 - Current
Developed and implemented a 5 star iOS app with over 4K app store downloads utilizing Swift 3 and XCode, created initial design and concept, wrote all code, managed one graphic designer and animator, and oversaw all programming and app support. Oversaw all work related to releasing the application, which included digitally signing the app, providing information for Apples website, and delivering the application to the iOS app store. Managed promotion for the app through Apple search ads, website reviews, and Facebook ads. Interfaced the app to a REST service utilizing Swift to send data to the RescueGroups.org non-profit, which allowed users to adopt rescue cats more easily. Achieved write-ups for the application in five different articles, including AppAdvice.com, Ray Wenderlichs Reader Apps of the Month and AppsAndApplications.com. Developed a custom transition to move from screen to screen by cutting the screen like a cookie cutter utilizing the outline of a cat, which resonated with the user base.
