Hi, Mark here. I am thrilled to be able to join the team at Hippotrix on their app creation journey.

I’ve been making apps since late 2010, a few months after my Wife and I had our first child. Having a child gave my a new point of view on what apps are out there for children and gave me a desire to create the best apps I can for them to enjoy and learn from along with the children of other parents around the world.

The first major app that I’ve worked on at Hippotrix is whitetheapp and it’s been both great fun and challenging at the same time. The hardest part is keeping your thinking centred on the fact the app is for young kids and not overcomplicating things because it would feel better to me as an adult.

I have been fortunate to be able to also spend a couple of days with Dave Verwer of Shiny Development to bolster my app making skills and would highly recommend them should you be interested in how to make apps.

As part of the Hippotrix team I look forward to the many other wonderful projects that are in the pipeline that I’m sure you’ll hear about here when there is more to tell.

If you have any questions feel free to ask and I look forward to letting you know more about what’s happening here at Hippotrix and all the apps you can look forward to getting your hands, or should I say fingers, on.
