When a company thousands of miles away develops software for you or, in my case, an iPhone App, trust is not "a nice to have" but simply crucial. In view of the latter, I herewith express my sincere appreciation for the dedication, expertise, patience, and trustworthiness of Silver Touch Technologies Ltd and Semaphore Ltd. In both organizations, I have been working with pleasant, quality, and, at the same time, sensible business representatives, project managers and software experts. I was not only surprised by their expertise but also by their staying power. It will be a pleasure to introduce these grand companies and their people to my network, knowing that they are capable of providing safe and sound software-development services and highly effective Internet-marketing support.
The iPhone App that Semaphore Ltd developed on my behalf was approved by Apple Computer within 10 days. Considering the thousands of Apps that are submitted each week for approval, this is a record time for a paid application for which more stringent acceptance requirements apply. It might indeed be considered as an independent measure of the expertise and implementation capability of the Semaphore development team. I learned significantly from the collaborative software-development process that we followed. By and large, we went through three development waves that produced a fairly complex iPhone App, waves in which my input was responded to by the development team. In the first wave, I provided a detailed overview of all the screen layouts and a description of the key procedures behind key screens. In the second wave, I specified the flow from one screen to another.
