About me

Hello, I'm Jake. Originally from the UK (and now living in the Netherlands), I'm a mobile application developer and programmer. My biggest project so far is an iOS app called Travel Essentials, which aims to make it easier to find information while on vacation. I have also developed several other applications that have gained significant popularity.

In general I want to help people, and I do this in areas where I have particular expertise in - one of these areas happens to be travel. A large number of app categories are dominated by badly designed and slow apps which don't provide a great user interface - I'm going to change that. I will publish my latest releases onto this page and on the jRustonApps website.

    Whilst at secondary school I studied a variety of subjects including core modules such as Mathematics and English as well as ICT, Spanish and History. These gave me numerous skills which I have applied, including ICT which helped to increase my motivation for further study in that area.
