Chris Mayer

I'm a software developer based in Chichester, United Kingdom. I develop apps for iOS (iPad & iPhone), Mac OS X, Windows 8, Windows Phone, and Kindle Fire. I also blog about living with HIV, with the aim of educating about the realities of being HIV positive, and reducing stigma and discrimination. When I'm not developing or blogging, I've a passion for gadgets and videogames - especially Nintendo.
  
My own projects include the games Brain App, and Blockmatix, plus two very different calculator apps; CalcTab (iPad) - an easy to use calculator with spreadsheet-like functionality, and CalcSnap (Windows 8/RT) - a traditional calculator, built to take advantage of Windows 8 features including Snap and Sharing. More recently, I created HIV Health Tracker, an app designed to simplify and organise important information for anyone living with HIV. I'm also responsible for the CodeStore app template projects - designed to help authors and artists publish their work as apps without the hassle of writing code.
  
I take on freelance work occasionally, if you're interested in having me work on an app with you please send me a message about your project - and check out my portfolio if you'd like examples of what I've worked on in the past.

             
I'll be taking part in Relay for Life 2014, raising money for Cancer Research UK in memory of my mum, who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer on 16th May 2013. Any and all donations are very much appreciated! Thank you.
