  • MApp, UK Indoor Maps (Development)

    MApp was an iOS app that gave people access to the largest, most comprehensive collection of maps in the UK. Airports, museums, shopping centers, zoos, and more, all from a single point of entry! Though it's no longer live on the App Store, I've always been quite proud of it as my first app for iOS. It made it to the list of top 10 apps in the Travel category despite a rather notable dearth in marketing, and it was mentioned on multiple tech news sites, including Gizmodo.
