We provide


We've been building Apps for as long as there has been an App Store to sell them on and we've learnt a few things along the way. With household names such as the All Blacks and the Metservice under our belts we know what it takes to make a successful App. Working with you, we will be able to apply this in-depth industry experience to your requirements to make sure that you get the right solution for your business.


Great design is one of the major keys of an App's success. Nothing beats an aesthetically pleasing UI that delivers a smooth and intuitive user experience. Our designers focus on delivering designs and experiences specifically tailored for smartphones and tablets. By understanding the opportunities, and also the limitations, of a small screen we will deliver an App that truly stands out from the rest - we don't settle for 'that's okay'.


Building Apps that look great and work well is what we do. We built the top paid iPhone App of 2013 (the Metservice App) and the number one Sports App in New Zealand and Australia (The Official All Blacks App) but we are just as proud of every App we have developed. We've got a team who've developed a range of Apps, from games though to complex enterprise level Apps. Always at the cutting edge of technology, this is a team you can depend on.

Some of Our Work

ampm: Scratch Power

iOS | Android

The Brief

ampm is a convenience store with nearly 1000 locations covering the west coast of the USA, providing a huge range of convenience foods and drinks. ampm were keen to drive more customers to their stores by building a unique mobile App experience.

The Solution

PaperKite worked with ampm and Stun to develop a virtual Scratch Card game that could be used to encourage users into ampm stores. A highly specialised server was developed to manage prizes, push notifications, user registration, and more. Once users visit an ampm store they are prompted to use their App to receive scratchers that they can play-to-win for a great range of prizes. A truly fun App, Scratch Power brings the excitement of fireworks and rock music to the actions and instant gratification of playing a scratch card!

The Outcome

The App was launched in early 2015 and was fantastically received by users in the USA. In the first 2 months of use, over 200,000 prizes were claimed by users in ampm stores, far above initial expectations. As of August 2016, over 40 million scratcher games have been played!

All Blacks: The Rugby Union App

iOS | Android

The Brief

The All Blacks are the reigning Rugby World Champions and an iconic, world- class, brand. Working together, NZ Rugby and PaperKite determined that an iPhone and Android App would help to extend the reach of the All Blacks and to provide fans with a unique and enjoyable experience.

The Solution

The first Official All Blacks Apps were released in June 2010 and now are into their 5th generation. The latest incarnation utilises a completely custom backend system that provides in-depth statistics and information for all All Blacks games. The App overcomes some highly technical challenges to provide real-time match information, such as scores, and statistics, and displays them in a slick, easy-to-use, interface that sets it apart from the competition. The design was created to make using the App a pleasure and to intuitively provide users with a range of features including live commentary, team stats, players images as well as a news timeline incorporating everything from video to twitter.

The Outcome

All of the All Blacks Apps have hit the top spot in their respective fields, both paid and non-paid, to date. The latest version was Apple's Featured App of the Week and was displayed as the main App on each of the App Store interfaces.
