I wanted to get an App in the App store so that I could learn everything involved in the process of App development and publishing. I found an App idea, built the App from scratch, published it in the App store and worked on its promotion.

The App is called My Baby Growth Charts. It is an iPhone App for parents and health care professionals who want to track the growth of a baby and see how it compares with the typical growth pattern that most babies go through.

The Expat Card is a second App that I created in return for  advertising in the Expat Card Newsletter.

Interaction Design

The Interaction Design of the Apps is not meant to win any prizes for innovation. I wanted the Interaction Design to be very decent and behave as close to a standard iOS App as possible. This also enabled me to develop faster because the XCode development environment contains a library of standard iOS UI elements.


The Apps were developed as native Objective-C Apps using the XCode development environment. I used the XCode "storyboard" functionality (see image).

I integrated an open source library called Core Plot for the graphing functionality.
