What do I do?

I’m a software developer (mostly iOS and Mac) based in Singapore. Me and my friend built a Facebook client for iPad that reached #1 on the U.S. App Store. We’re working on an Instagram client for iPad (heh!). We also built an app to help you put pretty text on photo.

What hardware?

At work I’m using a Mac mini mid-2011, core i7, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD. I have a Thunderbolt display and an ancient Dell monitor in vertical. I use Time Machine to backup my stuff to a 7-year-old Western Digital My Book. Important stuff (my photo archive) is backed up to another Western Digital 2.5” HDD. My keyboard is a DAS Keyboard, my mouse is a Logitech G400 (link to the G400s - Logitech discontinued the G400).

When I’m not at work I use a 11” Macbook Air 2014, mostly connect to a 23” Dell monitor, a Apple Keyboard and a Magic Trackpad.

I also use an iPhone 5 and an iPad (3rd generation) on the move. My iPad is too slow it is a good thing, if my app runs smooth on my iPad it will pretty run smooth elsewhere.

What software?

Mac

iOS

Notes, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Tweetbot, Mailbox, Google Maps, Alien Blue, Instagram, Reeder, Instapaper, 1Password, and of course, Retro.

Web

I hosted my stuff at RamNode and DigitalOcean. RamNode is dirt cheap and quite reliable (so far), their support is also top notch. DigitalOcean to quickly test something once in a while.
