With the prediction that over 1 billion people will mainly use the internet on their phones by the end of 2012, we realise that mobile is the future and we’re getting ready to provide a better mobile experience for our members. We’re first looking to roll out an iOS App with Android and Windows Mobile soon after.
The Man on a Mission
Announcing the man behind our mobile mission - SkillPages’ new iOS Developer Karl Monaghan. Karl will be bringing his 13 years of software development experience to bear in developing the app for SkillPages. He has been developing various iOS Apps for the past three years, for himself such as TaxCalc.ie and for companies such as Adverts.ie. Karl is already in the early design phase and is throwing around wireframes and mock-ups like nobody’s business! He’ll be diving into the code mines once he has nailed down the functionality, but that’s an ever moving target at the moment.
Karl has big plans:
“It’s an exciting project as the idea behind SkillPages lends itself very well to mobile – location based instant searching is what mobile is all about”.
Be sure to keep an eye out for updates in the coming months and in the mean time you can see what Karl gets up to in his spare time by following him on Twitter at @karlmonaghan and checking out his blog.
