Mobile Consultant

The mobile app industry is growing at an unprecedented pace... Barely keeping up or are you leveraging all the opportunities it brings?

If you made it this far I know you have motivation, enthusiasm and drive. However, you will need a mobile consultant like me by your side to fully reap all the benefits of what technology has to offer.

Until not long ago, iPhone apps were like the very first websites: in a world where websites were few and far between, just having one was enough.  It wasn't particularly challenging to be a player in the mobile app development game without much competition. Now, as the market becomes more saturated, it is increasingly difficult to stand out from the crowd.

My years of experience in the field, combined with my MBA and business savvy, make me a shrewd ally to anyone looking to make their mark in the mobile world.

I live in San Francisco, the epicenter of the startup boom.  While I've seen some amazing concepts come to life, I've chosen not to get involve in revenue sharing, equity or similarly structured projects. Instead, I lend my technical and business know-how to early stage startups and established brands as a mobile consultant.

Apps using iPhone 5s M7 motion coprocessor

In September 2013, Apple announced the new iPhone 5s. The big news, a part from iOS7 itself, was the fingerprint scanner to unlock the device. However, we should also pay attention to the all new iPhone 5s M7 motion coprocessor.

What is the iPhone 5s M7 motion coprocessor?


The iPhone 5s M7 motion coprocessor is a new chip that gathers motion data from multiple sensors (such as accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass) and combines that information to determine a body motion. This is basically taking care of most of the leg work (pun intended :) ) that many fitness apps currently have to deal with.
