Curious about getting apps coded

I am an indie game designer. However, my medium is card and dice. I am not posting this message to push my games. I will not even mention the name of my company here (feel free to send a Private Message and I let you know details that way)

Having said that, I create games that are considered a niche market, and certainly a niche that is not available in mobile gaming (save for one or two titles). I currently have ten games in this niche. One of them has been ported to the PC. The programmer who wrote the PC game is a great guy, but this was a side project for him, and although he wouldn't tell me, I think the extra time involved with coding took a toll on him and his family time. I'd love more games ported over, but it wouldn't be right for me to ask my friend again.

Essentially, I am curious about two things:
1. Where could I go to inquire about having my one title coded for mobile gaming?
2. Where could I go to inquire about having other titles of mine ported to PC and mobile gaming?

Without self advertising here, I can tell you niche I am speaking about is Sports Simulation. I know there is iOOTP. Outside of that, there are some baseball games that use a free to play system, which I am not the biggest fan of. I envision my games to be sold premium with the ONLY IAP's to be purchasing older season (more content)

To give some more background on my games, I mentioned before that I have ten games available. Only two of my games are baseball games. The other games span the following sports:
American Football
Hockey
Soccer
Tennis
Boxing

As you can see, I offer products that are not just North Amercian oriented, but internationally oriented. If you are interested in working with me, please send me a PM. If interested in anything I said, please also leave a PM. In either case, I will let you know the name of my buisness as well as provide my email and a link to my website.

Thanks for listening!

I was afraid that I would be seen as trying to advertise. My website is www.diggindeepsports.com. Take a look and let me know your thoughts. My email is rlennon@diggindeepsports.com for any questions. Thanks!

No its fine to post here, once you are creating an app feel free to post about it in the upcoming games section.

Then once a games out a thread will be created in the main iphone/ipad games section (and the upcoming thread closed).

For me sports simulation games are great for iOS, can have a few games here and there, save my progress and go back to it.

I love stats and simulation games 'normally' cater well for stats. Theres quite a few 'soccer' management games out there but i'll be interested in seeing other sport management apps.

Hope this comes off
