Can we work together?

We develop apps for Android, an operating system based on the Linux kernel for touchscreen mobile devices.

Android Apps

The majority of the smartphone and tablet market is dominated by Android devices. They’re affordable and with Android Wear emerging, wearable devices will shrink in cost, making it great for large deployments.

Our Android app development can help you reach this audience by creating a bespoke Android app. Additionally, an equivalent app can be developed for iOS devices as well. We rely on Java to develop a clean, fluid experience for Android devices.

Whether you want a game, social media app or something for productivity, we develop a variety of different applications. It can be submitted to the Play Store, or kept private to your company.

We can develop custom iOS apps for submission to the App Store or for private distribution.

iOS Apps

Want to reach iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Apple Watch users?

Our iOS mobile app development will do exactly that.

We build beautiful, modern and functional apps. Our iOS app development depends on Swift and Objective-C on iOS to create the fluid and professional interface your users expect.

No matter what you want developed, from a social media app to a tool for productivity, we can create what you need and have it published on the App Store or kept for use in-house.

Case Study

Capture Pod

Capture Pod provide bespoke photo booths for events. They were approached by a potential customer who wanted to let visitors to their stores record a testimonial.

We developed a bespoke iPad app that Capture Pod deployed in several stores in the US and a web application to store the video testimonials in the cloud and catalogue them.

The app has enabled Capture Pod’s customer to quickly gather a wealth of footage for use in their marketing.


Who will own the IP?

You will own all of the IP – it’s what you’re paying for! You will have full control over it and can do whatever you want with it.

Is there any tie-in?

No. You’ll be free from royalties and expensive licences because you’ll own your mobile app. All of the apps we build use industry best practice and could be picked up by another company.

Can I add more functionality later?

Yes – most of our software is built in stages. We can help you plan your app’s development and organise it into stages. As your mobile app sees more downloads and use, you’ll discover new features that will be useful and we can add them on.

What can I expect?

After discussing your requirements, we’ll send you our proposal to build your app. It will outline the costs for each feature and you’ll be able to choose the features to include. We’ll then keep you up to date while your app is in development. When it’s done, we can publish it on the App Store or Play Store for you. Find out more.

Do you develop native or cross platform apps?

We usually write code in Java on Android and Swift on iOS to create native apps. Some apps might be suitable for cross platform development and for those, we can use React Native (the cross platform toolkit used by Facebook). Find out more about the technology we use.

Can my app connect to the cloud?

Most mobile apps have a cloud element that stores and shares data across users. Depending on your requirements, we can connect your app to your existing systems, to third party systems, to a backend-as-a-service (such as Parse) or create a new cloud application for you alongside your mobile app.
