AppForce1: news and info for iOS app developers

Weekly podcast discussing the latest updates, tools and events relevant to iOS app developers. I will also have a couple of reoccurring show sections to spread the word on fellow iOS developers doing fun and interesting things. On top of that I am working hard to do interviews with people relevant to iOS app developers. Think peers, teachers, bloggers who will have an open discussion with me so you can see what passion, hard work and a great community can do for your personal work and success.
