Speaker at the next Brighton iPhone Creators Meetup

As per the title, I’m going to be speaking about iPad Development at the next Brighton iPhone Creators Meetup. Here are a few details about the event:

Presenting: iPad Development: New Challenges and Opportunities for iPhone Devs

When: Tuesday 21st @ 7pm

Where: The Skiff, 6 Gloucester Street, Brighton, BN1 4EW

I’ve been primarily asked to talk about iPad development so that’s going to be the main feature in my 20/30 min presentation. How iPad development creates new challenges (User Experience, Development for multiple iDevices etc) and opportunities for iPhone Devs (increased sales, AppStore rankings).

I’m also planning to share some of my experiences of developing for the AppStore such as tips on how to improve your app reviews and ratings and how to avoid some of the mistakes I’ve already made :-)

That’s it for now… Gotta get on with my latest app idea :-)

Portfolio To Go goes Mini!

Portfolio to Go Mini has just been approved for sale by Apple and is now availabile on iPhone and iPod from the App Store!.

Following the success of the iPad version and winning Apple’s prestigious App of the Week award, Portfolio To Go goes mini and arrives on your iPhone and iPod touch!

Portfolio to Go syncs your Flickr photosets to local, cached galleries on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Once all galleries and images are cached you can view your portfolio without an internet connection. Perfect for use with wi-fi: sync and go.

Portfolio To Go is elegant and intuitive, giving users instant access to all of their Flickr photosets. The unique interface design presents thumbnail images horizontally and vertically on a photo-wall capable of displaying thousands of images simultaneously that scroll at the touch of a finger.

Portfolio To Go supports all device rotations so can be flipped vertically for portraits and horizontally for landscapes.

Another unique selling point of this app is the ‘Send Portfolio to a Client’ feature. The Photographer picks and chooses which of his galleries to share and can then send an auto-generated email to clients and friends containing a free download link to ‘Portfolio To Go Player’ iPad/iPhone App. By clicking the emailed link clients launch the photographer’s portfolio on their own iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch.
