18th May 2016 was an exhilarating day for me as I had the opportunity to meet with Apple CEO – Tim Cook, Apple COO – Jeff Williams and key members of the Apple Team. It was a privilege like no other. I am humbled that Tim Cook took some quality time out from his busy schedule in Mumbai to spend over an hour with me along with the founders of Urban Clap, Sweet Couch and Avaz.
We pour tremendous amount of love into our products and our design philosophies strongly align with Apple’s. It was encouraging to see Tim Cook genuinely excited and curious about Numerics and the unique use of Apple technology in our app. He was quite impressed with the vision, design and the data security model of Numerics.
Here’s what he shared in a tweet after the meeting:
Great to hear from some of India's top iOS developers today. Innovative apps and many ideas for the future! pic.twitter.com/ZhEfE7wNW7— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) May 18, 2016
It has been an honor and one of the greatest validations of our work and vision.
I also had the chance to personally thank Tim Cook and all of Apple for being a guiding force and proving to us that great design is worth striving for, and that it leads to success no matter how hard the road.
Here are some snippets from my intimate meeting with Tim Cook:
