iPhone App/ Developers’ Meeting in Boston

Went to a local iPhne-developers’ meeting last night (March 30, 2009), which I found on Gary’s Guide
- a great resource for meet-ups, conferences, networking opps in the Boston area (oddly enough the iPhone meet-up is no longer listed on the site). The event was organized by Raizlabs
, a small dev firm in Brookline. It was great to connect with different folks at the event and look at a few interesting apps.

Raizlabs has one popular one – Tip Calculator
– what’s neat about it is that it lets a group of friends calculate their individual tip amount based on how much each one ate or drank (we all know such a tool comes in handy, especially after a few drinks…).
Another good app is talkFree
– which let’s AT&T subscribers talk for free (wish this app was available for international calls☺). Durga, the developer behind the app, even contacted AT&T to acquire the app, but they politely declined...wonder why:) There was a really neat app that I saw by Andy Nalband, but promised to keep it on the DL until he is ready to wow us all (and he will). Of course, I showed the OurStage app
to a few folks, including Wade from Xconomy
– a must read publication covering start-up activity in New England.

A lot of folks were interested in learning how to market their apps. Durga figured if he released new additions to the app every once in a while, he would get recurring top listings in the store. Others shared that tweaking the app description could help. If you have suggestions, pls leave me a comment – would love to comply the best ideas in a subsequent blog.

Yours in scratching
