ALL APP-ENING TECHNOLOGY GOING UPWARDLY MOBILE
DEVELOPING mobile apps has become a popular and exciting career within technology.
Greg Taylor, the brains behind apps like Clipp and eCoffeeCard, said it was satisfying to watch people use something you created.
Mr Taylor, who started his first business at university, said app developers would always be in demand in our technology-infested world.
But app development was not easy. Apart from thinking outside the box, there was lots of hard work.
“What a consumer sees in an app is the tip of the iceberg. They don’t see all of the work that goes in the eCoffeeCard app was born,” Mr Taylor said.
After selling that app to Beat The Q in 2013, his next idea came to him after he accidentally left his credit card at a bar one night.
The result was Clipp, which helps bars, pubs and restaurants to sell the last tables in their venues and works as a mobile payment and deal app for bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs.
Mr Taylor said app developers needed to understand the market.
“A good app developer is someone passionate about what they build and more importantly, care about the quality of their work. This is a very hard mix to find,” he said.
