Hi! I’m probably best known for creating the White Noise apps for your smartphone which helps millions of people sleep better at night. It’s been featured on the Dr. Oz show, Today Show, Fox & Friends, and even Jimmy Fallon made fun of it with his Axl Rose edition.
O’Reilly Media published my book Tap, Move, Shake (foreword by Steve Wozniak) that teaches you how to take your idea to the App Store. I’ve also written for BYTE and Tech Republic. I’ve launched over 10 mobile video games of which Compulsive and Card Counter have been the most popular. My latest creation is Playapod which improves the podcast experience on mobile devices.
I hosted the Tech 411 Radio show on 106.7 FM in Washington D.C with my good friend Oscar Santana. We later relaunched the Tech 411 show as an audio podcast. I also competed on the reality TV show, Treasure Hunters, which aired worldwide on NBC. My latest podcast helps you sleep and is called TMSOFT’s White Noise Sleep Sounds.
I founded TMSOFT in 2008 to create apps for Apple’s App Store and quickly expanded to the Android platform. I have also published apps for Mac OS, Windows, Apple TV, Android TV, and a few others that no longer exist (BlackBerry, Palm webOS, Nokia). I’m on the board of the Application Developers Alliance which is the voice of over 25,000 individual developers. Prior to becoming an independent app developer, I was the chief software architect for the NetWitness security platform. I’m on LinkedIn if you want all the extra details.

I read an article about you in AmericanWay and I have an idea for an app. How do I get in touch with you?
Jeannine, Hey there! I just found that article you are speaking of at http://www.americanwaymag.com/iphone-app-store-bath-technology-mavens, and it was published back in Oct 1, 2009. I’m assuming the information is a little outdated especially since it mentions 60,000 apps in the store and now there are over 350,000. If you want to e-mail me you can send to my first name at this site. Cheers, Todd
I’m Ulli and i’m 13 years old. I have been researching iphone app creations for quite a while now… Then i came across your book in Chapters.
I had to upgrade my mac to mountain lion so that it could run xcode but i would just like a few insporational tips on how you got started. I am very intrested in your book (even though i am still on chapter 1) and thourally enjoy it.
Thank you for your time,
I am Vincent and I’m 12 years old. I’m interested in iOS apps so I learned from your book, and it was pretty easy. However, I was stuck with the Paddles game because there were nothing displaying on the iPhone simulator. I can’t even run the app on my iPad 3 with iOS 5.1.1, although I set the deployment target to iOS 4.3. My system is OS X 10.8.2, and the Xcode version is 4.5.2. Can I get some help? Thanks for your consideration.
Just wanted to say that I’m really impressed with your combination of useful knowledge and ability to convey it simply. I came across your presentation “How to Get a Million Downloads” (YT: /watch?v=GxNDmOlODL8) and then watched your O’Reilly video snippets. I don’t have any Apple devices right now but if I pick one up I’ll probably be ordering your book/videos.
Thanks Nathan! Glad you liked the videos. Cheers
I have been using WhiteNoiseFree and been happy until tonight when my sleep was rudely interrupted by an ad. First time this happened. I reset it and the same thing happened. So sleep interrupted twice from ads blaring forth from the app. I am on a Mac and have do not disturb set during sleep hours. What to do?
Sorry to hear Steven. Please contact support via Help/Send Feedback menu. It would be best to take a screenshot of the ad and the website it launched so we can block it.
Todd, I just looked at your arcade build page. Do the games run smooth? I really want to build a Mortal Kombat 1,2 and 3 machine but am having a hard time figuring out what is needed. Do your MK games run and look like the original arcade games?
I have not specifically tested those games but it shouldn’t be a problem since they are older than 1996.
Yes! I’m going to put together a YouTube video at some point. Cheers
Are you a No Agenda Show Producer?
ITM! I was knighted Sir White Noise 🙂
How’s it going?
Do you ever visit the No Agenda Pub?
I am producing a virtual readers’ theatre version of Peter Pan. I started a very small theatre company a month before the pandemic hit and we went virtual quickly. We have produced two video productions so far – The Adventures of Mouse Deer and A Christmas Carol, which you can find on our YouTube channel (Micro Theatre at the Broadway Tavern). These productions are completely volunteer and we do not charge anything to view them.
I saw your video of the crocodile on YouTube because I am looking for a video of a swimming crocodile that I can use in Peter Pan. We record via Zoom so I need a piece of video I can loop and use in one of the Zoom boxes.
Would you let me use your video? If so, would you send me the file and allow me to edit it to create the portion I need for this project?
Sure please e-mail me and I’ll send it to you.
I am Alberto Muñoz, Spanish journalist. Do you have an email where I can contact you, please?
Yes my contact info is on the about page of this site.
Thanks Todd. I tried in this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) but maybe it wasn’t right.
Please, can you write me at email@example.com ?
