We develop straightforward and engaging applications for web, iOS, and Android.
From online stores to in-app payments and subscription services, we do it all.
We build elegant, easy-to-use websites, using mobile and SEO friendly code.
We focus on simplicity. Good design drives users to a desired interaction.
We don't want to bore you, so here are a few basic tenets:
1. Understand the Problem
Technology only makes sense when it's used to solve a real world problem. The first step to building an app or feature is making sure you know what problem you're trying to solve.
2. Don't Create New Problems
Technology "solutions" often end up creating more issues than they solve. If a feature doesn't directly solve a problem, or if it's going to be impossible to maintain long term, don't build it in the first place. (For more on this, see our extensive blog.)
3. Start Small, Reevaluate Often
Start with the simplest version of a project or feature you can imagine. Build it, use it, then improve it. Before adding anything new, reread tenets 1 and 2.
