CHUCK:  Hey everybody and welcome to episode 35 of the iPhreaks Show. This week on our panel, we have Pete Hodgson.

PETE:  Good morning from sunny San Francisco.

CHUCK:  Andrew Madsen.

ANDREW:  Good morning from cold Salt Lake City.

CHUCK:  Jaim Zuber.

JAIM:  Hey, hey. My, my.

ANDREW:  Rock and roll will never die.

CHUCK:  There we go.

JAIM:  [Inaudible] on mood.

ANDREW:  I’m a huge fan.

CHUCK:  I’m Charles Max Wood from DevChat.TV. And this week, we have a special guest and that’s Chris Judd.

CHRIS:  Thanks for having me.

CHUCK:  Yeah, no problem. Since you haven’t been on the show before, do you want to introduce yourself really quickly?

CHRIS:  Sure. I am the CTO of a medium-sized consulting company here at Columbus, Ohio called Manifest Solutions. And what I like to tell people is that by day, I’m a mild-mannered enterprise Java developer, but by night, I’m a crime-fighting mobile developer.

CHUCK:  Ooh, very nice.

JAIM:  Do you wear a cape for that?

CHRIS:  I don’t. But one of the applications I worked on is like ADT for your body. So, if you feel like you’re in a harmful situation, you can triple click this big button in the app and it will dispatch emergency or police to your location or open a one-way communication to a dispatch center.

CHUCK:  Oh, wow!

JAIM:  Wow! That’s pretty cool.

PETE:  It’s cool. It’s kind of like your phone is its own superhero or something.

CHUCK:  There you go. Do you wear glasses during the day and then take them off to save the world?

CHRIS:  Only when I go to the phone booth to change.

CHUCK:  For a second there, I was like, “I’d like to see that,” and then I was like, “No, no I wouldn’t.”

[Laughter]

PETE:  So, do you do mainly iOS development when it comes to mobile or do you do Android as well?

CHRIS:  So, I do a variety. I do Android, iOS, I do mobile web, I’ve done some PhoneGap and I’m Titanium Certified.

PETE:  Okay.

CHRIS:  Wow.

PETE:  That sounds like the kind of thing a superhero would say, “I am Titanium Certified.”

[Laughter]

PETE:  But Kryptonite allergic.

CHUCK:  Alright. Well, we brought you on today to talk about Mapkit.

CHRIS:  Well, that’s great because I think writing applications that take advantage of mapping data are a lot of fun.

CHUCK:  Do you know how many times my iPhone has gotten me lost?

CHRIS:  No, I don’t.

[Laughter]

PETE:  You have to be a real expert to know that. I know about everyone’s Mapkit.

CHUCK:  It’s about half the time, it seems. I get directions and it’s just like,
