My name is Matt Gemmell1, and I design and build software for iPhones, iPads and Macs. I live in Edinburgh, Scotland.
I’m interested in intuitive design, multi-touch interfaces, human-focused software, and accessibility. If you are too, you might enjoy this list of my favourite books on those topics.
I’m an invited speaker at technical conferences and workshops worldwide, and I’d be happy to speak at your event.
I’ve written for (and been featured in) many industry magazines. I’ve written a monthly column for Tap! magazine since the first issue in December 2010, reviewed OS X Lion for The Guardian, and contributed to MacUser UK, The Loop Magazine, and more.
I’ve released a large amount of iOS and Mac source code, which has been used in hundreds of apps.
I’ve also released a few apps of my own: Favorites for iPhone (speed-dial with style), Shady for Mac (dim your screen to soothe tired eyes), and Sticky Notifications for Mac (quick and easy on-screen reminders via Notification Center or Growl).
