We provide

Consultation

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.

Design

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'.

Development

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

Transperth

iOS


Project Overview

With a population of 1.7 million, Perth has a large and varied public transport system. Looking to make getting from A to B a breeze for their customers, we were approached by the WA Public Transport Authority to develop the Transperth Journey Planner App for iOS.

What we did

We worked very closely with the travel data provider, Jeppesen, to refine and make the most of their API to deliver the client's vision of a fast and accurate travel App for Perth. By concentrating on keeping the interface clean and intuitive we were able to develop an App that provides public transit journey information, integrated timetables, stop locations and trip geography to users in a slick and easy to use package.

Final outcome

The App was released in December 2013 and quickly shot up the charts, even beating Google Maps, to become the top free Navigation App in Australia.

United Nations Handbook

iOS | Andoid


Project Overview

New Zealand has been curating and providing the UN with the hugely popular UN Handbook for over 50 years. With the upcoming Security Council elections, New Zealand was keen to provide a high impact improvement to the Handbook experience for UN Members and approached us to turn the printed book into an interactive App.

What we did

The UN Handbook consisted largely of unstructured data and information. We worked to create a consistent schema and developed a CMS to hold it. With simplicity at the heart of the App users can now quickly search for UN information, create bookmarks and view maps. Unravelling the intricacies of the UN has never been easier.

Final outcome

The App was launched to the United Nations in New York in September 2012 and was fantastically received by members from all 168 countries, even topping the iOS Reference Charts for the month. To date, downloads have been far above expectations with steady uptake from users and 5 star ratings on both App Stores.
