Frustration inspired us to create PicStroom.
Planning a reconstruction of their living room Jeroen wanted to share various inspiring images from Desiretoinspire.net with his girlfriend. While the iPad was the perfect tool to find and view the images there was not a simple app to collect the images and then show them.
When Jeroen shared his idea with Damien, Damien ran with it.
Within a few days a design was drafted and a proof of concept built. They worked relentlessly on PicStroom in their spare time to get it done. It turned out that a simple idea invoked a lot of complexity. In the end Damien built a game engine to get the performance right.
Jeroen lives in Baarn, The Netherlands, while Damien lives in Dublin, Ireland. They have only ever met over email, iChat screen share and Skype.
