Sam Jarman is a student and hobbyist iPhone developer, living in Canterbury, New Zealand. Sam publishes in the app store under the trade name Samstrix Apps.
Jarman started iPhone development with a simple course taken at his secondary school in 2009. A year later, in 2010, he had over 5 apps on the store. He has spent a lot of the free time he has developing apps, and learning Objective-C. Sam is currently at secondary school, in Christchurch, New Zealand, so can be described as a hobbyist iPhone developer. His first app for the store was a game called 2High-2Low, a simple game, which took him about a month to perfect.
