Baltimore iPad app makers gettin' busy
Without an iPad in hand months ago, the folks at Fastspot in Baltimore used pieces of paper to mock-up how they'd play the new word game they designed. Watch the video!
My story about Baltimore-area iPad/iPhone developers hit the paper and the web today -- check it out here. You should also take a gander at the video we shot of Fastspot, a Baltimore interactive design firm, and the iPad game it built: Jumbalaya.Interested in another iPad app by a Baltimore company?

One of the more interesting things is that there's a growing ecosystem of businesses that are sprouting up to support iPad/iPhone and other mobile apps.
For instance, Gregg Weiss, a Florida businessman, operates two Websites -- iPad App Developers and iPhone App Developers -- that links developers with companies needing someone to build the apps for them. Gregg also works closely with two companies that help market mobile apps: Appular and Appency.
I think the question that's on everyone's mind is if the iPad will turn out to be as big -- or bigger -- than the iPhone? Or will it be a moderate success?
