Can we work together?

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

Android Apps

60% of today’s smartphone market is held by Android, and for good reason — it’s cost effective and well supported by Google. Perfect for the average consumer or even large deployments.

Our app development services can help you reach this audience by creating a bespoke Android app. For even greater reach, we can also develop an iOS version. Our Android app development relies on Java, which allows us to bring you a clean, fluid interface that you and your users will love.

From a tool that does scheduling or one that allows your staff to chat, we can create an app that meets all of your requirements. Upon request, we can publish it on the Play Store.

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 services can help you attain that goal.

We design and create professional, modern and highly usable native apps. Our iOS app development relies on Swift and Objective-C on iOS to create a familiar interface that is easy to navigate and is aesthetically pleasing.

We create all sorts of iOS apps. From a messaging app to a game, we can create a solution that meets your needs. Depending on your requirements, the app can be kept in-house or published on the App Store.

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.
