WOiP Welcomes…or… “Who’s On What’s On iPhone”

On April 19, 2009

You may have noticed that we have the pleasure of having two superb new writers here on What’s On iPhone.

Both Gretchen and Derick bring a wealth of technology experience and iPhone/Touch enthusiasm to the site and I/we could not be happier to have them as part of our on-going effort to bring you iPhone app news and reviews.

Here’s a bit about each…


My name is Derick and I’m a fourth year undergraduate Psychology and Business student at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. I ordered my iPhone 3G the first day it went on sale and have been hooked to it ever since. I’ve visited the app store pretty much every day since I got it and have always enjoyed playing with new apps.

In my spare time I read pop-science books, devour my google reader feeds, play the piano, play video games (Xbox Live: Raven Blade), and talk science and design with friends over coffee.



My name is Gretchen. I just turned 40 this year.  After work over 20 years in computers and technology, from desktop support to web design to classroom training to training design I am in the process of developping my own consulting business. I am also working on a couple of blog startups that are just about ready for primetime.  I love teaching, learning and writing about technology.

I have always been a mostly pc and windows type who has dabbled in some linux because I am a geek. I could never understand the devotion of Apple lovers. That changed at the end of 2008 when a good friend with an Iphone talked me into buying a Touch.  Now I find myself impressed and fascinated by the design and usefullness of the Touch. I figured writing for whatsoniphone would be a great way for me to learn more about and share my discoveries of stuff for this great device.
