When people think of Georgia and Atlanta in particular, mostly images of peaches, Coca-Cola and large antebellum plantations spring to mind. But “Hotlanta” has a lot more to offer than big old houses and sugar water. Atlanta is also home to the 10th largest economy in the United States and the 18th largest in the world. In addition to Coca-Cola, companies like Delta, Home Depot and UPS have all decided to call Atlanta home. But it’s not just the brick and mortar businesses that are turning to the Peach State – in 2017 Forbes magazine picked Atlanta as one of the 5 Cities to Become Tomorrow’s Tech Meccas.
So we decided to turn our eyes to this jewel of the south and compile another one of our “Best of” lists. In no particular order then, here are our picks from the Top Atlanta Mobile Software Developers.
AppZoro Technologies, Inc.
Headquartered in the 4th largest tech hub in the entire United States, Atlanta Tech Village, AppZoro is a full-stack development that prides itself on their Georgia roots and is well respected in the Atlanta startup community. How well respected? Let’s just say that when it came time for Atlanta Tech Village to build an official mobile app – they turned to none other than AppZoro. The Atlanta-strong team at AppZoro develop for Android, iOS as well as web apps and, with a 100% client satisfaction guarantee on all completed projects, it’s no wonder that businesses like Shouty, Vimbel, and The Hotelier’s Network have turned to AppZoro for their development needs.

Big Nerd Ranch
Like the other agencies on our list, Big Nerd Ranch develops and designs apps for Android, iOS and web.

In addition, the Nerds at the Ranch also offer development boot camps for individuals and teams, write best selling books, and broadcast The Frontier, a screencast all about advancing your app development skills.

With a name that brings to mind images of the fiercest of the dinosaurs (just check out the animation on their home page), you’d think a mobile app development company named Tyrannosaurus Tech would be ready to devour all challengers. Tyrannosaurus Tech does in fact kick ass in the mobile app marketplace, but they do it with an appropriately toothy dinosaur grin on their faces. That’s because Tyrannosaurus Tech is an Atlanta-based software development agency that takes app design and development (but not themselves) seriously. They develop for both iOS and Android, for both native and hybrid apps. In addition, they can also work with Ruby on Rails, Java, React and WordPress. Tyrannosaurus Tech even offers a free developer consultation to make sure that your project gets off on the right (dinosaur sized) foot. Their portfolio ranges from big brands like Porsche and Emory University down to startups like Gather and even non-profits like Task Force for Global Health. The team prides itself on working hand in hand with clients to make the process of custom software development fun and non-intimidating.

Founded in 2006, PointClear Solutions began by bringing enterprise software development to major healthcare providers around the world. Since then, they’ve expanded beyond healthcare and now develop mobile software solutions for a number of different industries. PointClear’s main HQ is Atlanta, but they also have offices in Nashville, Birmingham and New York City. The number of awards they’ve won could fill a paragraph alone, but to name just a few they include a Top Mobile Application Development Company in New York for 2016, a Top 12 App Development Company for 2017 from Clutch and a Gold prize in the 2016 W3 Awards for Best Sports Mobile App sites. They’ve built mobile apps for such healthcare giants as Walgreens, St. Jude Medical and Navicure. But, as we said, PointClear develops for more than just the medical field. Some of their recent mobile apps include KeyMe, AccepTx Pro, Arrcos 360 and – oh yeah – the BeFunky app.

Some of the agencies on our list split their services between web and mobile. This can sometimes be an advantage when it comes to reaching out to different clients. Dragon Army isn’t one of those. To them, the future is mobile and that’s all they’re concentrating on. That’s because they see mobile as the bestway to reach out to customers to build lasting relationships. That’s why companies like Coca-Cola, IHG, Equifax and Turner turn to Dragon Army for their mobile app needs. But don’t think that makes Dragon Army a stick in the mud – they also have their own mobile studio where they build games (at their own expense), launch them and then use the profits and experience to make even more kick-butt apps for their clients. Dragon Army has been named as one of the Top App Development Companies in Atlanta by Clutch, the Most Admired CEO by Atlanta Business Journal, and won the Best Mobile Gaming & Fundraising App at the 2016 Atlanta Mobile Awards.
Here’s a short TV spot for one of their most popular games, Little Broken Robots.
