Hi everyone,

Ohana means "family" in Hawaiian. and Ohanaware is the indie software team of Sam Rowlands and his wife. They are an indie developer team that works exclusively on the Apple platform. They will be with us via live video from the other side of the world (seriously!) Ohanaware makes some of the most popular photography apps in the world.

Sam Rowlands will be our featured guest on Wednesday June 6, 2018. He was our guest previously, and the presentation was extremely well received. I strongly recommend you come to this event! Sam is very open and helpful, and listens to customer comments and suggestions in a way that shows he takes the comments seriously. They produce some of the most popular photography apps in the world.

Their most popular product (so far) is HDRist, and it's available here:


Here is Sam's description of HDRist NX

"HDR stands for "High Dynamic Range Imaging". Long story short; it's a means of compensating for digital cameras not being able to handle as much light as the human eye. HDR works by 'compressing' a wider range of light into a range that can be displayed on computer, phones, tablet and TV screens.

"HDRtist NX is the third installment in the HDRtist series of applications that we started back in 2009. NX is our absolute latest and most advanced, featuring technology that we've been improving since 2009, and brand new tech that we've developed in the last few years. Its a massive accumulation of our dedicated research and development."

Support indie Apple developers and join us June 6th!
