Peeps

Peeps lets you create selfie video chats with groups of friends. Tom Cavill and I released Peeps in July 2014, since then it has been featured by Apple and as App of the Week in ShortList magazine.

As the technical co-founder, I:

  • Built the app using iOS 8 adaptive layout API for the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, employing UICollectionView extensively.
  • Designed a custom SMS-based system for verifying users based on Twilio or Nexmo APIs.
  • Implemented video recording with H.264 and MPEG-4 AAC using AVAssetWriter.
  • Implemented video filtering using AVAssetReader and Core Image filters.
  • Wrote Server-side business logic in Javascript for Parse Hosting.
  • Added custom view controller animations using UIViewControllerAnimatedTransitioning API.

Peeps is written in Objective-C and Swift and is available for free on the App Store.
