I am an iOS design engineer. I love building unique interactions.

Side Projects

2024

A fully customisable implementation of the split-screen interaction seen in the Amie iOS app.

  • Takes options for the top and bottom content. Every button in the drag-indicator region is customisable with SFSymbols and custom actions.

  • The attached videos and GitHub have some explorations of other potential uses of the split-screen.

2024

A recreation of the background effect in the new Apple Sports app. Created using a custom cloth texture and metal shaders.

Forma is a companion application for sportspersons and their coaches. I have conceptualised and developed features such as:

  • a high frame rate camera with accurate scrubbing to help players critique their form using on-device pose estimation

  • novel algorithms for additional insights from HealthKit data such as heart recovery efficiency and fatigue accumulation

  • a watchOS integration with Live Activity for giving coaches real-time insights on their player’s health during training

  • an 80% performance improvement over the old app after profiling with Xcode Instruments

FieldDay is an iOS platform for iteratively engineering computer vision models via the iPhone camera. At FieldDay I have worked on:

  • a HomeKit integration with custom UI for controlling home devices with the camera

  • a Public SwiftUI package, custom Siri Shortcuts actions, and integrations with AppClips, CoreML, SnapStudio and Python for deploying models

  • an accessible and tactile annotation interface to make data collection easy and intuitive

  • an interface to quickly explore large bursts of collected data and iteratively improve ML models

  • a model training feedback component that teaches optimum data collection based on predictions

Five public point-and-learn experiences using Apple AppClips with over 14k objects recognised and 6k instances of further engagement including:

  • Retail and exhibition experiences at the Vitra showroom and Clerkenwell Design Week

  • Decypher, a FieldDay app that helps you learn about Royal Ciphers and postboxes in the UK

  • Museum and retail experiences for the McLaren Headquarters

  • an algorithm to recognise and save unique image data to reduce storage requirements by 90% compared to the industry standard

  • a multi-camera video sync algorithm for supplementing iPhone footage with dash-cam footage using Apple Vision & Accelerate frameworks
