Like many other left-leaning, iPhone-wielding, well-informed individuals of my generation, I signed up for the NYTimes Digital Subscription when it first came out. At first, I used the app all the time and got my full $15 dollars worth. But in the past few months, I have found myself using more curated aggregators such as Pulse and FlipBoard to find out what is going on in the world from a bunch of different viewpoints. Not only that, but the major reason for me not reading it is that the NYTimes iPhone app does not support a certain beta version of iOS that I am not permitted to talk about, but is installed on my phone.
My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.
I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
