Apps that won't just make you smile, they'll give you a great big Fat Grin

Hi, I'm Ryan Gibson. I run Fat Grin Software, a one man iOS indie software vendor based in Yorkshire, England. I'm currently working on Catchlines, an iOS word game, version 2.0 was released in May 2016.

Where did the name Fat Grin come from?

It was a dark and stormy night, or maybe it was humid, I had I decided needed to sign up for some account or other and required a business name post-haste – having not given it any forethought I scrabbled around for inspiration. I happened upon a nearby copy Anthony Burgess A Clockwork Orange, opening it at a random page I scanned for something worthy. Alex was in the middle of his aversion therapy, the nefarious Ludovico technique. There, mid-sentence, the words fat grin itched for recognition. A quick domain registration later and now I have a silly light hearted company name.

'Oh,' he said, 'just to see how you're getting on.' And he brought his litso real near, a fat grin all over his rot. So I fisted up and went smack at this litso, but he pulled himself away real skorry, grinning still, and my rooker just punched air.
