    Genius Kid; 9 Year Singaporean Writes iPhone Applications!

    I was quite surprised to read this. This kid is a real genius.

    The ‘New Paper’ reported yesterday, Lim Ding Wen, a 9 year old Singaporean kid writes iPhone application. His iPhone application called ‘Doodle Kids’ has been downloaded for 4,000 times within the last 2 weeks.
    At this age when children play and draw objects like fruits and natural scenes to satisfy their pleasure soul, Lim Ding finds atonement in writing applications for Apple’s famous iPhone. The Doodle Kids is an iPhone drawing application meant for children. It allows the children to draw using their finger.
    They can draw object by touching the screen and dragging their finger to form a shape. Interesting enough, to erase or delete the object, you only have to shake your iPhone, and there you go.
    Lim told, “I wrote the program for my younger sisters, who like to draw,” Lim said. He has two younger sisters aged 3 and 5.
    It is told that Lim started using computer while he was only 2. Lim masters in 6 programming languages and has completed up to 20 programming projects. He is currently working on another iPhone gaming application. It is a science fiction game named as “Invaders Wars”.
    The 9 year’s father Lim Thye Chean is also related to the same field. He is the inspiration behind his sons’ great production and talent. Lim Thye also writes iPhone applications and works as a chief technology officer at a local technology firm.
    He keeps the updates of his sons’ projects Thye says “Every evening we check the statistics emailed to us (by iTunes) to see who has more downloads.”

    He is going to be rich guy, without a woman. He is going to ba a super nerd whose only life is computer. And when someone asks him for a date, he replies. "I would love to. But I have some coding to do..."

    Just kidding. I think he will become something in the future. Something big.

    He would probably say something like this:
    if (dating) {
    document.write("Time wasted!);
    }
    else {
    document.write("resume coding work");
    }

    That's great for him, but doing that at such a young age is a pain in the ass. Monthly I need to get money by enveloppe or being brought to my door because otherwise all money my parents receive from me will be lost. So if you're earning too much in Belgium than your parents are not allowed to get money for you (they say the children should give their parents money.. big no-no deal for me lol )

    But good for him that he can do things like that

    He does not need to worry about that as his father is encouraging him and in fact competing him. Which in my opinion is wonderful.
