Greetings visitor and welcome to my blog. My name is Simon Strandgaard, AKA. neoneye. I’m a software developer. I make apps for iOS, macOS, Raspberry Pi and Linux. I live in Copenhagen, the capital in Denmark. I bike everyday. I don’t have a car. I don’t smoke. I drink coffee. I like science.

My project: TriangleDraw for iPhone/iPad

This is one of my proudest accomplishments so far. A drawing editor with a triangular grid. It's available on the App Store and it's free.

See this video of TriangleDraw in action.

From time to time, I post my own random TriangleDraw doodles on Instagram.

TriangleDraw is opensource. Let me know your ideas for improvements.

I originally coded TriangleDraw in 2007 as part of an entirely different graphics app of mine. When the iPad arrived I quickly migrated TriangleDraw into a standalone app. At that time TriangleDraw was limited, it was coded in Objective-C. Nowadays it's written in Swift and more advanced. I tried earning money on it, but without luck, so I eventually made TriangleDraw free.
