The process of building an app is a big job.


RESEARCH. Is your app for public or business use? If it’s for public, do some research: browse the app store, do a Google™ search – is there something similar out there for reference?

DESIGN. What does your app look like, what features does it have?

TIME. Apps take time, love, and lots of decisions to make them beautiful and functional.

What are people saying

Two outstanding aspects of this project will live in my memory for some time to come; the first is the depth of ability in your development team. In my 20 odd years in the software development industry, I have only rarely experienced a dev team that develops this fast and this well.

The second is the amount of reciprocal trust that was required to deliver this project on time.

In this day and age of corporate cynicism, it was utterly refreshing (and rather scary) to commit and start an exceptionally demanding project on a promise and a verbal agreement, between parties who have never before worked together. That you and your team put in so much effort under these conditions was invigorating, humbling and an affirmation that decent, simple human values are alive and well!
