Hi I’m Nick. I’ve been developing apps for iPhones and iPads since Apple first created the App Store and opened the iOS platform to 3rd party developers in 2008.

I’m a Entrepreneurial App Developer & Consultant. My client work is exciting and diverse. As well as being a very experienced coder I’ve also attained a wealth of knowledge of consumer and enterprise app distribution and am regularly commissioned to consult and help clients make the most of the incredible Apple technologies that have become such a core part of our culture over the last 8 years.

I’m good at communicating with clients, developers and designers (those with and without technical knowledge). I listen and pride myself on a strong attention to detail. These qualities have helped me to win trust and business from clients such as the BBC, Channel 4, Novartis, Pearson, Macmillan and the World Health Organization.

Alongside work-for-hire I also love developing on my own indie apps and games. My first taste of App Store success was a messenger app I co-developed called Tap to Chat that notched up multimillion downloads. Since then I’ve launched niche Photography Apps like Portfolio Pro that have been featured by Apple. More recently I co-developed a multiplayer game Poker Royale.

I’m a native iOS Developer – I code iOS Apps using Xcode, Objective-C, & Swift. I’m also adept at coding a range of complimentary server-side technologies such as Node.js, Parse and Pusher.

A large percentage of my clients use Parse to power the back-end of their apps: user and data model management, multiple device syncing etc. I’ve been working with Parse for a few years now, writing iOS and Cloud Code. I’ve also utilised Parse for realtime multiplayer apps via their Javascript and Node.js SDK.

I love collaborating with talented people and being inspired. Recently I entered a Facebook/Parse hosted Hackathon and scooped first prize working through the night with an Android and iOS Developer I’d never met before! We created a cross-platform real-time photo sharing mobile application. Our presentation included a live demo to an audience of developers who were taking photos using the app that appeared instantly on our on-stage iPhone.

I’ve worked on a great variety of projects from freemium and paid apps through to enterprise apps for schools and businesses. If you have an interesting project I’d like to hear from you. Get in touch and we’ll arrange a coffee at my super sweet office @ 68 Middle Street in central Brighton!
