I posted this also under other implementation https://forum.ethereum.org/discussion/1351/anyone-interested-to-make-the-iphone-and-iwatch-ethereum-app#latest Post it here too to reach out to more people.

I am looking for people interested to build the iPhone and iWatch Ethereum app. Please contact me, if you share this interest.

    PS would be great to know about Apple developers in this group. Maybe we can exchange contact info. I made a Google Sheet for this https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qofNrCwtJwycd5vd0FJWHWiHxGV1ow8sh9PP5j8FWXQ/edit#gid=0

    No xpost here, redundant post removed.
    As for discussing projects, we have the http://forum.ethereum.org/categories/projects section, which you can link GH repos from. I would advise against starting a 3rd party list (there's about 38308130 abandoned ones out there already, which is frustrating to the community).

    Ok - thanks for the clarification.

    hey gerd, requested permission to your spreadsheet, reading gav's code for weeks, and although gav's style is a bit different than mine, i like his code very much, although it is a bit obfuscated at places. probably because he is one really smart dude :)

    @Stephan_Tual‌ I totally agree with you in respect to GH. Thus I have made this repos on GH for this project http://bit.ly/1pfxovB

    @exquisitus‌ looking forward to discuss with you. I have also generated an xCode project from Gav awesome C++ implementation and studying for the moment the code. BTW I use OSX server, great for team work.
    What about a hangout on G+ to discuss?

    Who has interest to help with the development of the user interface?

    *Appels WatchKit one of the missing bricks now in place*

    *My personal thoughts on the Apple Watch*

    - the next big thing, a repetition of the iPod story, as a very preliminary guess

    Moreover, I guess, as before, a lot of people had worked in the area (I still remember all the mp3 players pre iPod), but than an execution that push everybody out of the market. I think the watch will be a huge success and kill part of the traditional watch industry and competitors in wearable electronics.

    Furthermore, Apple will take a major cut from payment transactions (although, they might get overrun for the first time for long by the technological development - ref Bitcoin - Apple has not got this point properly and they beg on the wrong horse - money transfer with a middle man has to many disadvantages: security, takes far to long time - e.g. Visa takes a week for the merchant to get the transaction really confirmed, to high transaction cost ..... the block chain brings so much ease ; Apple should have a better look at apps they have on their own app store - like bread wallet you can find the code here: https://github.com/voisine/breadwallet) In any case for the near future Apple will make a lot of money with their new payment system and the watch will make it very easy to use.

    In general, it is still difficult to really judge the watch. I did not have any in my hands and I did not study WatchKit, which is not common accessible to all Apple developers. Just a very few people from few companies like e.g. FB got access under non disclosure agreement. The real capability will be first revealed by studying the WatchKit.

    I think what the Watch will make great are all the apps developers will come up with after the technology is made accessible to everybody.

    For the moment we got a demo of some of the basic functionality - only a glimpse as Tim said in the keynote. There is more not revealed functionality e.g.of the 4 sensors on the back.

    The Watch looks like an awesome platform. One think I am wondering is battery life. Will the Watch make it through the day. What about 24/7 trackers? In any case I am really looking forward to develop for the Watch.

    My personal Watch project:

    I am researching https://www.ethereum.org as this might be a great concept to build the decentralized company structure for my startup http://www.cytocomp.com/CytoComp/CytoComp_-_a_revolutionary_biological_computer.html and the secure P2P sharing for sensitive data (such as DNA sequencing data).

    To get really deep into this, I am exploring this project:

    ADS: An easy to use Ethereum (smart contracts wo a 3rd party) iPhone and Apple Watch implementation for the general public.


    What do you think @exquisitus‌ ?

    Can you do me a favor and fill out this survey.


    It would also be great to send to your friends
