Etsy app for Apple Watch, Etsy 2015
Excited about the device's impending release, my coworker and I set to work developing Etsy for Apple Watch. It enables Handoff and offers notifications, package tracking, and a recommended items feed for Etsy buyers. At release, we were delighted to be featured on both the App Store and in the new Apple Watch app's featured section.
In 2014 I designed Etsy's second native app, Sell on Etsy, which launched in six countries. Building on top of that foundation my team and I launched a card reader for both Android and iOS devices that helps sellers make in-person cash and credit card sales. Unlike a Square reader, it is powerfully integrated with an Etsy seller's shop inventory. Fred Wilson writes about it here.
I start my day jogging to work while wearing a nerdsack. I usually follow this up with an hour of extracurricular iOS programming.
