Wonderful E-mail

I've received a lot of e-mails from people who have read Beginning iPhone 3 Development. Anytime somebody thanks Dave and me for helping them to create an App, it feels pretty darn good, but a few e-mails stand out. I got one such e-mail, today, from Cameron Cohen, an eleven year old developer who already has an App in the App Store.

Now, in my mind, that's a pretty cool thing in and of itself. But it gets even cooler: Cameron is donating a part of the proceeds of his app to Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA's Child Life / Child Development program.

I don't normally blog about end-user applications — that's not the purpose of this blog — but I'm making an exception in this case. Check out Cameron's web site and also check out his first app, iSketch (iTunes Link).

Also, if there's anybody in the media reading this, I think Cameron's tale would make a great human interest story… I'm just sayin'.
