Headlight Software: the company
Headlight Software, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Michael Burford.


Since starting to write iPhone programs, I've been working hard; both on some little apps, but mainly a big useful (but not "sexy") FTP client for the iPhone.

All the crazy and simple apps are the ones that get a ton of users. But really, a "Flashlight" app is following the instructions for the most basic "Hello World" program--and not finishing by have it print "Hello World"! And fart noises are worth #1 in sales?

I was a bit inspired after reading about the Popularity Enhancer feature in Tweetie. But thought to do far more, one app that had all the popular simple tools, all the stupid stuff, and more, all rolled into one. An "Office Suite" of stupid and simple iPhone apps if you will. I mentioned to my brother (me = programming, he = graphics) and his reply was "Like iCatchall. Did I just name it?" Yep.

We'll keep adding more tools and fun stuff, and already have ideas to add. If you have a suggestion, let us know. And we'll keep watching the App Store too....

Michael Burford: the programmer
Michael is the founder of Headlight Software, and the programmer for all the stuff.

GetRight was the first Windows download manager tool back in 1997 and is still one of the most common download managers used today. (More history about GetRight and other programs.)


Peter Burford: the designer
Peter does the graphics & manages the various websites. He also helps come up with sometimes-useful and sometimes-crazy ideas for Michael to program.

Peter is also generally responsible for the videos, sounds, and other things. He's the guy "telling your friends" when you select Audio.
