"The idea for an archery scoring app dates as far back as 1997, when the first Palm Pilot III was introduced. Being a student, international archer and computer geek I had the time and know-how to create an App for the Palm operating system, to run on my Palm Pilot III and later in 2003 my Palm Tungsten T2. Later I bought a Compaq iPAQ 3630, also a PDA, but with the Windows CE operating system. I tried to convert the App to Windows CE, but this obviously failed due to the fact that Microsoft is unable to create anything that can be called; "Operating System" :-)

When Android was introduced, I got hold of a HTC Magic or Google phone and started to develop software for it. One of my first Apps that actually reached the Google Market (as it was called back then) in January 2011 is Arrows, which you can still download. Also in 2011, I started the development of Artemis and the first upload in Google Play dates back to October 2011!

Currently, Artemis has been installed more than 18.000 times and is actively used by many top-archers and top-coaches in countries all over the world."
