What we design

Our clients include the NHS and The Times as well as small private companies.

Mobile Apps

We offer both iOS and Android App development for businesses of all sizes and sectors.

phones

An app is an application designed for mobile devices such as a smartphone (and tablet) to entertain and inform the user. Apps are downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google’s Play Store for free, or a fee. Apps are now part of everyday life and are a great way of providing your information to your customers at a click of an icon. 65% of mobile phone time is spent using apps.

The types of apps we build are mainly for providing information and easy access to your businesses range of services. Content can consist of many elements such as news, maps, events, contacts, links, audio, video and lots more.

I’ve got a website, why get an app?

Apps are build specifically for mobile devices and they reside on the mobile device so don’t require an internet connection or typing a url. Your app is always there on the device ready for your customer when they require it, keeping your brand in front of the customer at all times.

What are the costs?

The costs for developing an app for your business depends on your exact requirements. Typically there will be an initial cost to build the app, then there would be a reasonable annual fee to keep your app up to date and submitted to the Apple App Store.
