App Development

We build your mobile app.

  • What we offer.

    Solutions for mobile devices

    Your business needs a mobile presence - to communicate with your customers as they pull out their smartphones, to keep your employees informed when they are on the go, to allow your suppliers to work closer with you. AppTastic is your single point of contact throughout the whole development lifecycle of your mobile solution - from the initial discovery phase to storyboards, wireframes and through to the delivery of the final app.

  • How we work.

    With you all the way

    Our approach to delivery is centered around you and the users you have in mind. We understand that your objectives, constraints and stakeholders can change, and we focus the usability aspects of your mobile solution around the specific needs of your humanoid users. Rather than trying to deliver the perfect solution next year, we will get you a great solution today.

  • It's your turn.

    How do you get started?

    To get you started towards a mobile solution for your business we run a two hour discovery workshop where we explore where your business currently experiences painpoints that a mobile solution could address, and what the main goals of such a mobile solution in the context of your business would be. We can also answer any questions around technology, integration with your existing IT infrastructure and service offerings, or costs that you may already have on that occasion.
