Program Manager

I’m Adam Demasi.

I founded HASHBANG Productions to build and release software for iOS and macOS. We’ve built TypeStatus, NewTerm, MapsOpener, and many more.

I’m a maintainer of Zebra, a package manager for installing tweaks, themes, and other handy utilities on jailbroken iOS devices, and the Theos build system, the most commonly used solution for building iOS jailbreak software from a device running macOS, Linux, Windows, or even iOS itself.

Currently building Chariz, a directory and payment platform to help users find and buy great Mac and iOS software, and Legacy Update, a utility that fixes access to the Windows Update service on old versions of Windows.
