I have developed an iPhone photo sharing App on the App store and recently I started interning for a company that makes iPhone games. During my interview I showed them my App as part of my resume (so they were well aware of it). Upon employment, I remember signing an agreement that states anything I create or invent using company time and equipment belonged to them, and anything outside of that was mine.
After joining the company I took over development for a photo sharing app of theirs. Now this is where I am getting a little sketchy, since the release of version 1.0 of my App, I have been working on upgrading it and adding many new features. Features including friending, commenting, etc. Now to be honest with you, these are core features of any photo sharing app (including the one I'm in charge of developing at work).
Now, my question is will there be a conflict of interest if I release an update to my photo App? Technically, my photo sharing app is a competitor to theirs, but the core business of their company is iPhone games (they are trying to enter the photo sharing market).
I know I signed a contract that (supposedly) protects me, and I've read on the California labor law that states I should be protected, but does anyone else have any more insight?
