Widget Press what, who?
Somewhat jovial, the name is actually rather easy to figure out. The 'Widget' of Widget Press is played upon the standard widget term in economics to indicate a hypothetical product, and the 'Press' is played upon the printing press for publishing items. So there you have it, a company that produces stuff so you can buy a couple million copies and it is called Widget Press.
Founded in 2001, as a small software company for web and consulting services, Widget Press focused on developing & selling its pre-packaged web frameworks, including the popular (now retired) Widget Property and Widget Podcast.
In the second half of 2008, reinvented itself as a Mac software vendor. Its first Mac software product, ModelBaker, a development tool for building web and mobile applications with no programming, was released on January 5th at the 2009 Macworld Expo in San Francisco, California. In 2010, Widget Press released it's first iOS product, FormEntry Touch and two additional Mac products, FormEntry for Mac and FormEntry Server.
Chief Widget Maker
Jonathan Freeman, Founder of Widget Press and the main dude. Jonathan grew up programming on the Commodore 64 Educator and at age 12, probably created the first C64 dual display by hijacking signals off of the RF Modulator on the motherboard and soldering RCA components for TV inputs. And yes, he still has it and of course it still works, Boulderdash on HD is never better!
A cartoonist, turned graphic designer, turned Army Sergeant, turned entrepreneur, turned human factors engineer, turned web developer and now an Indie Mac developer, Jonathan attended the Savannah College of Art & Design, majoring in Graphic Design and Illustration, where he found Amigas and Macs. He also obtained a BS in Graphic Arts Management from Georgia Southern University. His role at Widget Press is to have new ideas, write the software, do support and to make the website sing. Jonathan is committed to making the best and most exceptional products possible.
Jennifer Kjellgren, Jennifer is mainly the support person to Jonathan. Her duties including being a personal assistant, administration, getting Metro Fresh for lunch, giving Jonathan heartburn when he's reading the credit card statements and taking care of three cats.
Addison Freeman, At age 2, the youngest of all three employees, her main two roles are to pluck the keys off of her father's MacBook Pro keyboard and to laugh wildly while pulling Sage's (the cat) tail.
