Debug 1: Loren Brichter of Letterpress

Hey, we have an all-new podcast! It's called Debug. I'm co-hosting it with Guy English of Kicking Bear. It focuses on development, especially iPhone, iPad, Mac, and game development, but we'll be covering other platforms as well. Where Iterate is all about designers, Debug is for developers. Think of it as director's commentary for your apps! And we managed to score a seriously special guest to help us kick off. So without further ado, here's s01e01:

Guy and Rene talk to Loren Brichter of Atebits about working on the iPhone at Apple, Tweetie at Twitter, and now Letterpress on his own. OpenGL, Game Center API, in-app purchases, iOS 7 feature requests, and other assorted nerdery follows.




Yell at us via the Twitter accounts above (or the same names on ADN). Loudly.

Debug 1: Loren Brichter of Letterpress


Great! We love Iterate, but there is occasionally a little too much self-congratulatory pixel-pushing / font-kerning / ever-so-subtle-color-gradient-transparency mumbo jumbo.

Looking forward to listening to the first episode during lunch today! if ever want to talk to a new, fledgling developer whose working on his first iOS app, to get a feel for what it's like starting out, count me in!

Great first episode! I have to comment on 1:14:38...

The sound after Guy asks his question sounds like Loren's head pops like a balloon. I laughed so hard I had to rewind to find out what his real answer was.

Really enjoyed it. Thanks.
