iOS Consulting

Featured: Internal Enterprise App for the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s Emergency Operations Center.

The Vectorbloom team with John Borchert as Lead Developer, have designed, developed and released well over a dozen native iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android apps and games combined. An expert in mobile front end and cloud technologies, John is available to develop solutions that take advantage of smart phone features such as Location, Motion, Camera, Email and Push Notifications in a meaningful way for the end user.

If your target audience is large, we build for the most popular platforms that allow you to reach these customers with a native app. The mobile front end technologies we focus on are Objective-C and Swift for exclusive iOS, Java for native Android or Unity 3D for cross platform deployment. When building an internal mobile solution for an Enterprise, we evaluate which platform or combination of technologies best suit the needs of our client for a mobile approach.

As far as any cross platform tool or game engine goes, Unity 3D rocks. When not working on client projects, we develop for Big Top Ballet using Unity 3D game engine technology and cloud server tools.  With a success of the title maintaining the Top 10 Mac Music Games throughout 2012 and 2013, the video game originally released under Vectorbloom Technologies, became the company.

John Borchert
Mobile Developer & Consultant

Originally from Vancouver, I make my home in Whistler, British Columbia with my wife, Elizabeth Boylan and our daughter, Sara.

Programming since I was 19,  my career spans the beginnings of the Internet to the latest in mobile, games and cloud technology.

With a background in Rails and database technologies, since 2009 I’ve focused my expertise on native Objective-C for iOS applications (iPhone and iPad devices ) and C# for Unity 3D for game development and cross platform game deployment.

Over the past 5 years working with my partner and graphic designer/ wife,  we’ve built a series of in-house Vectorbloom apps as well as consulted on larger scale mobile iOS projects. From these projects, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Swift, Wearables, Git, Tests, Core Motion, Core Location,Push & Local Notifications, Core Data, Parse, Storyboard Layout, Networking, Plivo and Twilio Cloud Communications for messaging.

After developing an alternative game title in 2011, we founded a company of the same name, Big Top Ballet Inc. where I operate part-time as CTO and Unity 3D developer.

When I’m not programming, I’m playing tennis, mountain bike or hike the trails with my Weimaraner.

You can preview samples of my Objective-C code in the Mobile Greetings App Starter Kit for iPhone on Github.com.
