iPhone App wins President Award

by Justin on February 9, 2010 · 0 comments

The McClatchy Company, owner of the Miami Herald, awarded it’s highest honor to Dolphins 2009 – an iPhone application I developed alongside some of Herald’s strongest talent. The Dolphins 2009 iPhone app sold over 15,000 copies in the 6 months after launch, reaching the top 5 paid sports apps in the iTunes app store.

This marks the first time the award for journalistic excellence has gone to a technology – “In recognition of the evolving news landscape.” By turning the original code base into a reusable library, we were able to launch an additional 6 apps and build a platform for future development.

I’d like to thank everyone at the Herald for giving me this opportunity, for supporting me throughout the process, and for being really cool to work with.
