Just a handful of years ago, few could have imagined the incredible tools that today's developers would have at their disposal. Handheld, wireless capabilities for photography, health, biometrics, location, motion detection and more are enabling developers to build amazing new apps that are creating new businesses and markets. And all this is taking place in an industry that isn't even 10 years old. We've been there from the start.
We launched our first app, a simple tidal prediction tool, just 40 days after the Apple App Store opened to the public in 2008. Our in-house dev team typically has around 10 iOS projects in development at any given time, and is currently very excited about our work on a genomic-medicine educational platform.
They're knee deep in Objective-C, Swift and even play around with RubyMotion. But they don't get to have all the fun. For a good time, we 3D printed an Watch, which may or may not have involved downloading and translating the specs from Chinese.
It's true that everything Radio Shack used to sell is now an app. And it's amazing that so much of what we’re going to do together in the future—innovations in communication, medical research, education, and commerce—will take place on iOS devices. Let us be your partner as you build that future. Need to know the landscape of salaries in Seattle? Wondering what sorts of benefits founders are offering top devs? Just ask. We love to share our treasure trove of data with iOS engineers.
