Our Founder & CEO; Tim Porter who is also an Army Veteran, formed Appddiction Studio in 2011 after teaching himself how to develop native mobile applications. Mr. Porter was involved in a bomb explosion in Korea during a deployment in 1998. The explosion left Mr. Porter missing 4 fingers on his left hand and 2 on his right. Doctors then removed a toe from Tim’s foot to put in place of a finger for functional purposes. He always says, “you truly do not need all of your toes to walk!” Tim did not let what others would call a disability affect his future. Being a highly-trained and skilled soldier, Tim taught himself mobile application development in 2009. Tim set forth to make a change after seeing a young child on the news commit suicide due to being bullied. He immediately reached out to schools after seeing a need and developed Stop Bullies-mobile application to help school districts and communities in Texas and across the United States combat bullying in real time with a native mobile app. Appddiction employs over 300 team members to date.
