Eric Mansfield

With 20 years of development experience at some of the world’s largest media and entertainment conglomerates – including Sony Music, Universal, Scripps, Sony Pictures and MTV – Eric brings a detailed, practical approach to building high-quality applications.

His passion for clean, user-friendly design and interest in cutting-edge digital technology lured him into mobile app development. Because of his advanced J2EE skills and background in digital rights/asset management, licensing, data management, and e-commerce, Eric saw the enormous possibility in the convergence of these technologies -- and what that means for businesses of all sizes.

Once Eric learned Objective-C, there was no turning back. He’s as energized about mobile apps as he was when he started programming on his Commodore 64 in 1983. BackToMyCar is Eric and Chris’ first commercial iPhone app. They are currently developing more new apps, including an e-commerce iPhone app for a chain of restaurants.



Chris Mollis

Chris is a recognized leader in the field of digital rights management, and spearheaded the development of OpenIPMP, the world’s first open-source Digital Rights Management platform supporting such varied standards such as MPEG MPEG4 IPMPX, MPEG-21, Internet Streaming Media Alliance, and the Open Mobile Alliance. During this period, Chris formed his second company called Mutable, Inc. Mutable was formed as a joint venture with an embedded security company in Zagreb Croatia specifically to market and develop media distribution technologies. For his work and contributions, Chris was awarded the prestigious ’40 Under 40’ prize in 2002 by NJ Business News.

When he’s not trying out some new Cocoa hack, he’s an avid snowboarder, dedicated CrossFitter, and holds a black belt in Taekwondo. He currently resides with his family in Pennington NJ.
