iOS App Developer and Mobile Lead
Hey, I’m Zoreslav. I specialize in developing high-quality iOS apps and have over a decade of experience building and shipping apps for Apple devices.
Before specializing in mobile app development, I worked on game development, innovative 3D tech, and full-stack web. At some point, I led a software team responsible for creating Interpol e-Passport manufacturing software.
Lately, I have been using Swift and SwiftUI most of the time, and I enjoy having modern Swift concurrency and Combine at hand. However, the majority of my previous app development experience involved using UIKit, Foundation, and GCD. I think that the best app architecture is one that all team members can understand and utilize consistently. That being said, I think Clean Architecture and The Composable Architecture are among the better choices.
My interest in mobile app development originates from my belief in better life through technology. Mobile technology is already deeply integrated into human lives and the quality of user experience in mobile apps we use directly affects our well-being. That’s why I believe it’s our responsibility, as developers, to always strive for an intuitive, smooth, rewarding and empowering experience that our users deserve.
Since 2012 I have worked on over fifteen published iOS, iPadOS and watchOS apps, some of which are listed below.
Fitcoach for iOS is a popular health & fitness mobile app.
As a contract iOS developer, I helped to build several app features, mostly related to the app UI and workout audio guidance.

I built a stream-powered in-app chat with a highly customized UI using SwiftUI and Combine. I also created several custom transitions for the app.
I was responsible for a complete rewrite of the iOS app. I also worked on a team that designed multiplatform web-to-native bridging APIs. Additionally, I created a companion watchOS app and Home Screen widgets. Rolling out the new app significantly improved user feedback, reviews, and App Store rankings.
