Purpose: To bring together developers and publishers of Iphone/smartphone services
Developers: this event will help you showcase your ideas, find interesting work and swap notes with other developers.
Content publishers: this event will introduce you to the programmers who can make your content come alive on the iPhone and other smartphone devices.
It’s hoped that both content and tech folk will gain a fuller understanding of each other’s needs. Our first few meetings will be in small and informal settings, so much the better to have the one-to-one chats that lead to paid work and finished products all round!
Invited to attend:
- Content publishers – print and online (book publishers, newspaper and magazines publishers, games, web publishers etc)
- Software developers – individuals or agencies
- Phone manufacturers and operators
- Angel investors and VCs
- Associated professional services e.g. SEO and advertising
- Anyone with a commercial or organizational interest in the iPhone and other smartphones
Entrance is free, in the best traditions of Meetup.com and boot-strapping start-ups!

May 5th meeting:
I'm absolutely delighted to announce that Konstantinos Eleftheriou, one third of the development team behind the incredibly succesful iSteam app, will join us for tomorrow night's meetup.
If you haven't heard of iSteam then you should see what the New York Times has to say about it. Konstantinos will present to the group about his experience of going from nothing to selling >$100k of product in just under six months.
As mentioned before, we'll also be joined via Skype by Dave Castelnuovo, creator of the runaway hit Pocket God. If you've any questions you'd like to put to Dave, send them to me before we start tomorrow. I'm sure Konstantinos will also be glad to answer your q's.
6.30pm: doors open
6.50pm: welcome and (very) short presentation from me
7.00pm: Konstantinos and the story of iSteam
---Drinks and mingling-----
830pm: Dave Castelnuovo joins us from San Francisco via Skype
