Poker Omnibus W50P Press Kit

Company Overview

Thetaphone was born in 2007 when the first iPhone was released. The company specializes in developing apps for iOS (iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch) and tvOS (Apple TV).


Robert Jen earned his stripes programming 68000 assembler on Fat Macs, although he hacked around a little with BASIC on an Atari 400 before that. When he got his first PDA, a PalmPilot Pro, in December 1997, he immediately decided to quit his day job to develop applications for it. A decade later, Robert bought an iPod touch and experienced the magic a second time, eagerly awaiting the day Apple would release an SDK for developers to use. After a year of writing web apps, that day came, and he began to write his first Objective-C app. That app, THETA Poker, was released in September 2008. Nearly four and a half years later, its completely accessible sequel was finally ready after three years of work, and THETA Poker Pro hit the App Store in February 2013. As part of the marketing for THETA Poker Pro, Robert began writing a poker blog. Six years later, that blog had grown large enough to put a book together. Instead, because a printed book would run well over 1,000 pages, the Poker Omnibus W50P iPhone/iPad app was born from the World Series of Poker sections of the blog.
