About Us

Pocketglow is the home for software designed and developed by Ben McDowell.

Ben has been creating apps for the iPhone since the SDK first became available early in 2008. His second app, Harmonica, was featured by Apple and went on to become one of the Top 10 Paid Music Apps of 2008. Following that early success, Ben left his day job to focus on iPhone development full-time. He has subsequently expanded into iPad, Mac, Android and Windows Phone development. iOS remains his preferred platform.

Ben was born and raised in New Zealand, and is currently based in Toronto, Canada.
