Waiting for Review

Two iOS developers from opposite corners of the globe, attempting to make sense of life, technology and everything else in between.

About the show

A weekly discussion between two iOS developers and special guests from the community.

We talk about the Apple ecosystem, our lives, our projects, and usually get far too excited about the release of Apple products.

Waiting for Review is hosted by Dave Nott, in the UK, and David Wood, in New Zealand.
