David Gary Wood


Now, October 14, 2020


I’m David Wood, I live in Te Whanganui-a-tara, New Zealand with my wife, our two children, and our cat Monty. We emigrated here from the UK over 3 years ago.

Day to day

I work full time for an awesome kiwi company as lead iOS developer with a small team.

I have been learning Android development within my daytime role, to stretch and round me out a little more.

In my spare time I do light reading, tinker a little with my indie projects, take a daily walk and do a small body weight based exercise routine. I photograph interesting things I find on my walk.


I record a fortnightly podcast Waiting For Review . I interview independent iOS developers to talk about iOS development, their projects, and the Apple eco system. The podcast has taken a short break, but will be starting it’s ‘Season 2’ in November this year.

If you’d like to be a guest, then mail me .

iOS indie projects

Indie projects that I’m proud of include GoVJ , AirSynth and HoloVid .

I’m currently building an app that will enable a new experience for daily affirmations and mantras.

I have version 2.0 of GoVJ approximately 40% built, and I hope to relaunch the app in 2021.


I’m working on a collection of short stories, each no more than 100 words. I’d like to release this before the end of 2020, but this is looking increasingly unlikely!
