    Default iPhone App Developer Pays Off Parents' House Mortgage as a Christmas Gift [Video]


    An iPhone application developer by the name of Joe Riquelme has surprised his parents with a very heart-warming Christmas gift this holiday season.

    The young developer handed his mother an envelope with a surprise letter inside and a statement from Bank of America, reports Mashable. The letter, shown above, notes "Your house is paid off. Merry Xmas. – Joe."

    A YouTube video, linked below, shows the parents' reaction to the surprising Christmas gift:

    Riquelme is behind the video-editing application known as Videoshop, which sells for 99 in the iOS App Store. You can check out his application at this App Store link.

    And they say app developers make next to nothing and that Apple takes most of it. Seems this fellow has done quite well for himself.

    Well done son. You are an inspiration and I hope that many parents can share this with their kids, not for the financial aspects but for the respect, thoughts and huge heart you have demonstrated.
