Apps We Made

Apps We Made

From standalone mobile apps to hosted web services, here are a few examples of the apps we have helped our clients bring to life.


What: A clever little Coupon App, designed to help retailers boost footfall on the fly.
We were approached by an entrepreneur who wanted a digital solution to help manage stock and resource levels in line with real-time demand.
The Voogo App allows vendors to create and distribute promotional coupons instantly to help drive demand to their business. So if you are a sandwich shop that has too many sandwiches left at 4pm or a hair salon with too many stylists sitting around doing nothing, the Voogo App is a really simple way of enticing customers in – just when you need them.  ...Read More 


What: Think Uber® for private jets.
We were asked to develop a premium-branded iPhone App and website for booking private jets. Time was of the essence as the idea came from a new start-up business wanting a working prototype app to take to an air show to attract investors.
We developed the app to a proof of concept stage, within tight deadlines and the VentusAV app is now ready to run a full pilot.  ...Read More 


What: Property Management made easy.
This is one of our own ideas, borne out of the frustration of never being able to reserve a parking space for visitors when you live in a residential housing complex.
Flatty helps residents, managers and their staff communicate effectively about repairs, contacting the caretaker, sharing classified ads, local traffic news and of course, allocating parking spaces.
We have now completed a successful six-month pilot with Flatty in a residential block, and we are looking for more test opportunities and investment for further development.

What: An Apple Watch™ app to keep score for you when you play tennis.
Improve your knowledge of the game with your own wearable umpire on court.
Designed for on Apple Watch™, Best Tennis Score keeps track of your tennis score so you can focus on those all-important rallies.
Ideal for beginners learning to score and more serious players who don’t want to worry about who’s serve it is or be taken advantage of by unscrupulous opponebts !
Best Tennis Score uses the latest in wearable tech to give players their own umpire experience.

Developing your App

Developing your App

The first question we are always asked is, ‘How much does an app cost?’
The price will depend on the size, number of features and complexity of the app to be developed.

Our projects can start from the initial design phase on one platform for £2-4K.

We can then help you navigate through the different stages including prototyping, functional testing and deployment up to a fully operational, all bells n’ whistles high performing app on web and mobile platforms for £15-40K.

The most effective route to market is to invest in developing an app for the iPhone and iPad first. Once it is successful, many businesses will commission an equivalent Android App, to further open up the market opportunities.
