In this episode I got to talk with Claire McHugh, who co-founded Axonista with Daragh Ward. If you haven't heard of Axonista, you will, soon; they brought TV3's 3 Player to ROKU and the RTÉ News Now App to Windows Phone, and their ShowPal second-screen app is a wonderful implementation of 2nd screen functionality for Ireland's leading independent TV station. We chatted about Claire's early work with WAP, what Twitter means for second-screen, how event television and social media co-exist and we almost step into the the philosophy of politics & second-screen.
Dermot Daly the founder of Tapadoo and co-founder of Úll.ie gives us a sneak preview of who'll be speaking at the most important app conference in 2014 as it transforms into an event all about 'making beautiful products', and some of the worlds's best product people take over the Lyrath Estate in Co Kilkenny, Ireland in April.
Apple seem to banning apps like Coinbase from the App store and I played with The Jester's new app, Bitcoin Bud this week, it got me thinking about a blog post I wrote in 2012 - could Apple be planning a currency of their own, say "Apple PIPS" (Personal Internet Payment System) out loud? I chatted about this with App developer Dermot Daly of Tapadoo this week, and it seems he agrees it may be something Apple do in 2014 and he chats about the mobile commerce projects he's been involved in.
