After many years in software development at various levels, Dermot recently turned his skills to development for the iPhone. After some early successes, he chose to set up Tapadoo; a company specialising in iPhone application development. Tapadoo have developed their own titles, and also offer iPhone development services for hire. This year saw Tapadoo release their “Firepit” platform, for producing tour programme apps on iPhone. The first customer on Firepit was Ultravox. Tapadoo are now working on a number of titles with design agencies in Dublin, London and New York.
