Tony Parker

Creative Experienced iOS Developer

Overview

Results-oriented iOS developer with more than six years’ experience writing highly readable, clean, maintainable source code. Developed more than 50 applications for iPhone and iPad that offer users an intuitive, friendly interface, and successfully executed more than 75 updates to existing applications for a variety of small to mid-size companies. Results include robust downloads, activations, session lengths, retention rates, revenue increases and referrals.

I've done many things in this life, but what I'm most proud of is learning to live with purpose and within each and every moment. The important thing in life is to always be living your truth. Be Happy. Be Healthy. Be Kind. With a big and wide Smile on your face :)


Now with over 6 years of experience in the App Industry, I focus my talents and collaborate with companies that have meaningful missions and want to leverage mobile apps.

My experience has taught me how to focus on a craft that you provide as a service, while the my previous projects have taught me to live with purpose and make a positive impact in this world.

This is why I now focus on projects that make an impact globally and touch the hearts, minds and souls of us all.

I’m looking for a new challenge that lets me build fancy, responsive and stable iOS native applications.
