He is very well known for his skills with image manipulation, this new mobile platform has challenged him to try things he would never have attempted in his traditional workflow. And now he has been liberated to add new techniques to his everyday design work. We previously interviewed Dan in May earlier this year for our Day In The Life series, if you missed that, you can read it here.

Dan’s new column on will be entitled ‘iObsess’ and will include video reviews and tutorials of popular iOS photography apps.

We recently welcomed Richard Gray and Misho Baranovic as Columnists to theappwhisperer and we will have a few more announcements to make very soon. We are growing at a phenomenal rate and that’s because of the loyalty and dedication of our readers, thank you everyone.
