While the (Obama for the iPhone) application is an impressive feat for a volunteer effort (or any effort for that matter) what I think may be even more interesting—and (Raven) Zachary, arguably the premiere consultant for all things iPhone, agrees—is the underlying story about mobile app development in general—a development effort that, more and more, seems to be centered around talent right here in the Silicon Forest.
“This speaks to a growing trend in Portland toward mobile app development,” said Zachary. “We’ve really got something starting here.”
In another post on the subject, Turoczy names the Portland developers/firms to watch. They are: Avatron Software, Cloud Four, FreeRange, GoLife Mobile, Don Park and Raven Zachary (of course).
