If you could be put in touch with one investor in the New York community who would it be and why?
I don’t know any investors in New York City so far. So I would be happy for any advice.
Why did you launch in New York?
Because we live in this wonderful city and there are many great people and developers available.
Which iPhone has the best battery life?
That’s a tough question because it depends on some parameters. When you are using all features of an iPhone 5 and compare it to an iPhone 4, the iPhone 4 battery will last longer.
Where’s the best happy hour in New York?
At home with my family… 😉
