Today’s interview is with Jean MacDonald, one of the talented members of the Smile Software team. Smile was founded by Greg Scown and Philip Goward, who both love to write fun and useful software for the Mac and iOS devices.

I’m a long-time user of Smile’s software – in particular the excellent TextExpander. In our interview with Jean, we’ll shed some light on the company, discuss the importance of desktop software in an increasingly web-dominated world, and consider the benefits and drawbacks of developing a single application.

I hope you enjoy the interview!

It’s time for another “Meet the Developers” interview today, and I’m excited to let you know that we’ll be talking to Ruotger Skupin of iwascoding. If you’ve ever thought about using a Mac or iOS application for eBay, you’ll have undoubtedly come across their flagship piece of software – GarageSale.

Today we’ll be talking about the iwascoding team, a typical day working as a developer, why the company decided to focus on building software around eBay and PayPal, and offering plenty of tips for any readers thinking about developing an application.

I hope you enjoy the interview!

Today’s interview is with Sherman Dickman, one of the founders of the exceptional Postbox email client. Sherman teamed up with his co-founder, Scott MacGregor, to create Postbox after serving as Director of Product Management at Mozilla Corporation.

I’m a huge Postbox fan, and it was fascinating to learn a little more about what goes on behind the scenes. In our interview with Sherman, we’ll shed some light on the company, discuss the importance of desktop software in an increasingly web-dominated world, and consider the benefits and drawbacks of developing a single application.

I hope you enjoy the interview!

In today’s interview, I’m talking to Zac and Nik, the developers behind the very highly regarded Acqualia Software. Acqualia are responsible for two excellent Mac applications — Picturesque and Soulver — as well as the associated iPad and iPhone versions.

Today, Zac and Nik are offering a little insight into their development process, being an intern at Apple, their series of iOS workshops, and a few updates that are currently in the pipeline.

I hope you enjoy the interview!

When working as an editor or writer online, it’s easy to stay behind the scenes and remain something of an elusive shadow. AppStorm is no exception – we have a great team of editors and writers who work really hard to bring you a regular stream of top-notch articles across the sites.

I’ve recently published my own interviews with Josh Johnson, our iPhone.AppStorm editor, and Jarel Remick, our Web.AppStorm editor, and these are a great way to meet the people working behind the scenes of your favourite sites.

Obviously it would be awfully self-serving to publish my own interview with myself on Mac.AppStorm, so instead I thought I’d post up a quick link to a recent interview I completed with Adrian Try over at the Envato Notes blog. If you’re interested, be sure to check it out!

In today’s interview, I’m talking to Andrew Pepperrell, the developer behind one of my favourite applications of the year—Alfred. This is a fantastic application launcher, and seems to keep growing and expanding every month. It’s certainly been developed with care and attention to detail!

Andrew has taken a few minutes out of his busy day to answer our questions, talk about how Alfred is developed, share his thoughts on the latest Apple developments, and even drop a few hints about what to expect in future versions…

I hope you enjoy the interview!

In today’s interview, we’re talking to Pieter Omvlee of Bohemian Coding. We’ve covered Pieter’s software extensively on AppStorm before, and I’m a huge fan of his notoriously well-designed apps. If you haven’t already, head over to Bohemian Coding and take a look at what’s on offer – particularly if you’re a designer!

Pieter has been kind enough to share a few minutes to talk about the story behind Bohemian Coding, his thoughts on iOS development, how he stays up-to-date with the Mac industry in general, and the hardware and software he uses to get the job done.

I hope you enjoy the interview!

If you’ve never come across Pixelmator before, you’re really missing out. Pixelmator is an absolutely incredible image editor for the Mac, exuding quality, style, and speed. It’s a piece of software I use every day, and it’s a pleasure to feature one of the founding partners – Saulius Dailide – today.

Saulius co-founded Pixelmator in 2007, and since then it has seen a great deal of success. Today we’ll be chatting about his motivation for creating the app, taking a look inside their incredible “iOffice”, and getting a better picture of what goes on behind the scenes at Pixelmator!

Today we’re talking to Daniel Jalkut, the man behind Red Sweater Software, and developer of the popular desktop blogging tool MarsEdit. Red Sweater makes some incredibly handy Mac software, and today’s interview shines a little light on what goes on behind the scenes.

I hope you enjoy the first in our new interview series. We love the developers that produce the amazing software we review, and hopefully this will be a great way for you to meet the names and faces behind the apps that you use every day!
