    Todd Moore founded TMSOFT to create unique smart phone applications and games. One of the few developers to have had two apps simultaneously in iTunes’ Top 20 Paid Downloads, his most popular game, Card Counter, was featured by Engadget, the Los Angeles Times, and CNET TV. Todd’s most popular application, White Noise, was featured by iTunes, Health Magazine, The Washington Post, PC Magazine, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

    Todd started his professional career as a student trainee for the CIA, and after graduating from Old Dominion University in Computer Science, he designed network security and cyber forensic products. Since then, he’s had numerous appearances in front of audiences: everything from demonstrating how to crack a popular VoIP application at DEFCON 12 to competing on the NBC reality show Treasure Hunters.

    Author Todd Moore taught himself how to create an iPhone game in a week, with no previous knowledge of Apple’s development tools. Now he develops smartphone games and apps full time. With this book, any coder can turn game ideas into real products, ready for the App Store.
