Pocket - Urbit for iOS

I built the first version of Pocket, an iOS chat app for Urbit. I contracted for Tlon Corp to build their vision of a mobile-first way to use the Urbit network.

Urbit is a reimagining of what an OS can be; built around the concept of a peer-to-peer network. Users have “ships” that can talk to each other in a federated manner. Previously, the most common way for users to do this was through a web-based product called Landscape.

The Pocket app allowed users to sign-in to their ships and load all of ther DMs and group chats. They could also create new DMs and group chats with people they were in shared groups with.
