Certified Xero Developer and certified to ISO9001 and ISO27001


Can we work together?

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

Android Apps

Most smartphones and tablets run on the popular operating system, Android. It brings an abundance of features, while remaining cost effective for consumers and businesses.

Our Android app development can help you reach your target audience with an app that your users will love. Additionally, we can develop an equivalent iOS app. Our mobile app development relies on Java to create an interface that is both immensely practical and modern.

Our team can design and develop an app that works for you — whether it’d be a social media app or a game. Depending on the nature of the app, we can publish it on the Play store or keep it private.

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

iOS Apps

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

Our iOS mobile app development can help you do precisely that.

We build beautiful, modern and functional iOS apps. Our iOS app development relies on Swift to offer your Apple device users the fluid and professional interface they expect.

Whether you need an app for communication or for entertainment, we can work with you to create a solution that meets your needs. Depending on the type of application, it can be published on the App Store or kept private.

Case Study

Capture Pod

Capture Pod provide bespoke photo booths for weddings, birthdays and corporate events. They were approached by a potential customer who wanted to let visitors to their stores record a video 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. One of the key advantages of bespoke mobile app development is that the end product belongs to you and you can do whatever you want with it.

Is there any tie-in?

You’ll be free from royalties and expensive licences because you’ll own your 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?

Absolutely. It’s common to split software development into stages (think lean startup). We can help you divide your development into logical stages to meet your requirements with minimal upfront investment.

What can I expect?

After establishing your requirements, we’ll send you our proposal. It will have the costs for each feature and you’ll be able to choose which 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?

Both. We usually write code in Java on Android and Swift on iOS. Certain 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?

It can but it doesn’t have to. 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.
