    “We worked with BobCowe in the development of a software package for the iPhone. He was very patient, helpful and highly communicative. He went above and beyond what we had asked him to do and was generous with his time in tackling problems on our end. We intend to continue working with him in the development of further iterations of our app. I highly recommend him for his technical skills and level of dedication to client problems.”

    “Let me tell you something about Bob. First and foremost, he is a good man. He cares about not only the project being perfect but he also takes care in you. If you want to feel cared for, Bob is your guy. If you want the project to be done right, Bob is your guy. If you want to get things done efficiently, once again, Bob is your guy. There were many times when I thought that a bug would hold us up or something wouldn't get done. He assured me many times that it was going to be fixed and he figured out the issue, killed the bug and got the job done. I am definitely going to be using Bob again for future projects. He is a talented developer with such a big heart. It's rare to find those. If you want to know if he can do the work, I'm telling you he can and he is very humble. If he doesn't know something, he will tell you. But rest assured he will end up learning what he doesn't know very quickly. Also.. You can't beat that accent!”
