I am freelance software developer available for consultancy work. Currently I specialize in designing and developing mobile software applications, particularly for the iPhone however I am proficient in all mobile platforms and have 12 years of experience beginning with Microsoft Pocket PC in 2000. My main area of focus is "Jailbreak" apps and tweaks that are generally more complicated to build thus there is less competition from other developers, and have technically superior features than standard App Store apps, and the user market is huge worldwide. I have developed Jailbreak apps since 2007, and following the popularity of our custom iPhone apps, Apple launched their App Store a year later bringing the possibility of purchasing additional apps to the masses. I am familiar with many different ways to sell paid apps, and I also develop new payment/business models to monetize mobile software in ways to stay in front of the competition. I have apps that are paid through the official App Store, free App Store apps pay through iAd, paid apps in the Cydia Store, paid Jailbreak apps using my own payment gateway, free Cydia apps that use various Ad networks for monetization. The majority of the apps I build are my own creations but I also build apps for others.
I hold a Ph.D. in Computing Science from the University of Glasgow, Scotland in Mobile Software Adaptation. It involved many skills including building iPhone apps (after switching from Windows Mobile), WiFi positioning, GPS, ad hoc WiFi comms, plug-in architectures, recommendation and collaborative filtering algorithms.
I am also a director of Dynamically Loaded Ltd., a Scottish mobile software company.
