Top Atlanta Mobile Software Developers 2018

top atlanta mobile software developers

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. But where Big Nerd Ranch differs is their commitment to training and growing the developers, not just in Atlanta but all over the world. In fact, 19 of the world’s top 25 apps were built by developers who trained at Big Nerd Ranch. 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. Companies who have been helped by the nerds include Pepsi, Zappos, Google and many more.

SOLUTIONBUILT

Headquartered in the historic town of Marietta and with an office in Atlanta, SolutionBuilt entered the digital game in 2004 by building custom web applications. They were soon sought after by global marketing agencies for familiar names like BP, Coca-Cola, and InterContinental Hotels Group. Fast forward to 2018, these tech-gurus have continued to step up their game by opening their doors to SMB’s and Fortune 500 companies to provide custom websites, marketing, and app development. They also have become the go to developers in the medical industry for their app development with their experience on PHI, Security, and HIPAA compliance.

TYRANNOSAURUS TECH

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.

PointClear Solutions

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.

Toolbox No. 9

Toolbox No. 9 is a UI/UX Design and Development agency that creates web and mobile applications with Angular.js, Node, Ruby on Rails, IOS and Android.

Their web and app work includes clients like the Center for Disease Control, Lego and the Cartoon Network.

Dragon Army

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.

Digital Scientists

Another “old timer” in the app world – first established in 2007 – Digital Scientists creates mobile apps, websites, ecommerce stores and IoT applications from their headquarters in Alpharetta, Georgia. So technically not Atlanta, but they have an office there as well as one in South Carolina so that’s close enough. They also maintain offices in Atlanta and South Carolina, so we’ve decided to include them in this list.  On the mobile end, they develop for Android and iOS, as well as hybrid and HTML5 apps. Their suite of development tools includes Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, CSS3, AngularJS, Ionic Framework, Beacons, Elasticsearch and Cordova, just to name a few. Digital Scientists also pride themselves on their speed – they can take an app or product from concept to market in 90 days or less. Recent mobile apps they’ve developed include products for NAPA MyUS.com and Hubbell.

Here’s a short interviews with some of the Digital Scientists:

Top Texas Mobile App Agencies 2017

best texas mobile app agencies 2017

Cowboy hats? Check. Horses. Check. Lone Star Beer. Check. Yep – Texas has all these things, but there’s one thing that Texas has more than any other state in the US – and that’s Tech (with a capital T). In fact, in 2017, Texas was the number one technology exporting state in the entire United States, beating out California, the home of Silicon Valley. It’s no wonder then, that so many in the mobile app development game are turning to Texas when it comes time to found and build tech companies.

So we’ve decided to….erm….”round up” some of our favorite top Texas app agencies and share them with you. We did the same back in 2016 – have a look at our Top Texas Mobile App Developers 2016 list.There are a couple of familiar agencies from the last time we did this, but you’ll also see a whole bunch of new faces as well.

Ready? Slip on them Justin Ropers and let’s get these dogies movin’…

The BHW Group    

BHW, based in Austin, and led by CEO Brett Burnett, is a digital product design and a development agency. In app terms, they’re ancient – they have over 12 years experience in building over 350 mobile and webb apps. To BHW, happy employees make better software, which is why the median employee tenure there is 6 years and they’ve been selected as one of the best places to work in Austin for the past two years. Brands they have worked for include Chick-fil-A, the University of Texas and numerous SMBs and startups and they boast of several 5+ year relationships with clients.

Jackrabbit Mobile    

If you’re looking for some of the best tacos in Austin, everyone knows you head to East 6th street. But what most people don’t know is that’s where you also go for some of the best IoT and app development this side of the Pecos.  That’s because East 6th Street is also home of Jackrabbit Mobile – even the name is Texas-y. Jackrabbit is the first of our Top Texas Mobile App Agencies of 2017 to make a repeat appearance from our Top Texas Agency 2016 list. In addition to their IoT and app development, Jackrabbit is skilled at providing solutions for legacy hardware and software, obscure languages and other integration projects that might not be run of the mill. They also work with emerging technology like Augmented Reality (AR) and wearables. Here’s a cool video of some Jackrabbit developers integrating a drone with an Apple watch to fly the drone using gestures.

Praxent

Praxent, another Austin based agency, wants you to know one fact up front – over 68% of software projects fail. It’s a pretty depressing statistic if you’re about to head into the app market, but Praxent is there to help ensure customers get the help they need BEFORE they start writing one line of code. Using a principle known as the “Cone of Uncertainty”, Praxent digs into a deep into a full industry and competitor analysis to ensure market fit and validate any feature assumptions. In simpler terms, when developing, Praxent starts with the “Why” rather than “How.” Their services run the gamut from Mobile App Development, to Product Design & Strategy, UX Design, and Web App Development on platforms including .NET, Drupal, Java, Python and Ruby on Rails.

Softeq

Houston based Softeq offers development for consumer based mobile apps as well as custom native apps for the enterprise – as well as everything in between. After Jackrabbit, Softeq is the second holdover from our Top Texas App Developers 2016 list. Softeq builds both for iOS and Android, as well as Xamarin for cross platform needs. In fact, as mentioned on their website, the Softeq team loves developing in Xamarin. But Softeq doesn’t let their love of Xamarin bind them to a single cross platform solution. They also develop for  Cocos2D-X, Unity, Marmalade, Corona, Flash Air, UDK, just about any platform that fits the needs of the customer.

In addition to apps, Softeq develops for IoT, wearables, Augmented Reality, drones, and even Unity3D for robots.

This video contains just a small sample of some of the devices and platforms that Softeq has developed for:

Bottle Rocket

Bottle Rocket CEO Calvin Carter remembers standing in line for the first iPhone back in 2007 and instantly knew the device would change everything.

They develop for both iOS and Android, as well as wearable, AR/VR, voice and web applications for clients like Coca-Cola, Chik-Fil-A and the Food Network.

With Augmented Engineering, Five Pack Creative can embed their specialized engineering team into your product workflow. Perfect for when you’ve hit a roadblock during development of an app and not quite sure where to turn next.

Funsize

Not an app development agency per se, Funsize just does such great work that we felt like we had to include them in our list. Funsize is a young and dynamic agency located in – where else – Austin. When it comes to design and development, they embrace everything that is agile. Lead by CEO and Head of Design, Anthony Armandariz and his wife Natalie, in their short 5 year lifespan, Funsize has already worked with clients such as Oracle, Capital One and PayPal. They also work with VC Funds to launch new companies and even invest in other startups. And if that wasn’t enough, Funsize is one of the few agencies on our list that hosts their very own podcast, called The Hustle.

Here’s a video of the Funsize crew in in action during their Method Week team exercise.

SWIFTKICK

Swiftkick is a hands on mobile agency founded in Austin, Texas in 2015. How hands on? Let’s put it this way, the company leaders, Marc Doering and Timothy Moose, both highly qualified developers. assume full responsibility of each and every project. Not only are these guys good but, as their web site puts it, they kick ass (swiftly, we assume). They work with both big brands and small startups and have delivered apps for the likes of Experian, CSID and Squareroot.

ROCKSAUCE

You name it and there’s a 99% chance that Rocksauce does it – from product strategy, to design, to devlopment and product launch. The same goes for platform development: iOS, Android, web, SDKs, APIs and even animation!  They don’t start out with a MVP like most agencies. Instead Rocksauce focuses on creating a MDP (Minium Delightful Product). The Rocksauce approach starts with the UX where they focus on the features of the app before they move into the branding and design phase of the project to dial-in the look, feel and personality of the app. As they like to say, Rocksauce isn’t about just creating apps, they’re about creating happiness. And they’ve created happiness in the form of apps like Keyminder, Ticktalk, Quiller and many others since Rocksauce was founded in 2010 by design maven and creative guru Q. Manning.

dublin mobile app developers

Described by Lonely Planet as a “small capital with a huge reputation,” Dublin attracts visitors from all over the globe. With a wealth of culture, a vibrant party scene and no shortage of Guinness, the city continually delivers unforgettable experiences – and perhaps a few that get forgotten too!

Dublin’s “huge reputation” is also something that’s fair to apply to its thriving software development scene – particularly when it comes to the creation of apps. A great many app developers and digital agencies make Dublin their home, and do business with some of the world’s biggest brands.

Mosaic’s client list is one of the most impressive we’ve seen, featuring names such as Google, LinkedIn, Adidas and Diageo. It’s also worth mentioning that Dublin’s very own Guinness also features!

Mosaic seems like a great choice of agency for those who need a new app and some direction in helping it gain traction.

PurpleDecks

OK, so PurpleDecks aren’t technically located in Dublin, but rather Longford, Ireland. So, still relatively close to Dublin, in Ireland terms. But we felt they merited a place in our list because, not only do they design apps for clients like RTE, Centra and Qualcom, but they also place innovation at the forefront of their business. So much so, that they have an entire innovation center working on solutions in fields like the Internet of Things, mobile hardware, connected life, TV and more. Our client’s solutions benefit from our cutting edge research.

With a wide selection of agencies across the country, all with unique attitudes and focuses, Holland is a great place to go looking for help with your next app project. (Geographical trivia: Holland is a region in the Netherlands.We’re still talking about the same country.)

Top App Development Companies Berlin

top-app-development-companies-berlin

Berlin is a city with serious “tech hub” credentials and a rampant breeding ground for successful start-ups.

Statistics from European Startup Monitor reveal Berlin as the largest start-up hub in Germany, producing 31% of the country’s new businesses. But the city’s credentials go far beyond Germany. EU-Startups identifies Berlin as second only to London for such firms across Europe – quite a feat for a city with less than half of London’s population!

A good proportion of these fresh, new companies need mobile apps, so it’s no wonder that Berlin is also home to a host of world class app development houses.

Don’t believe us? Here’s a quick video about how Berlin has become the tech hub of Europe.

In this article, we introduce you to some of the best. So, let’s get straight to the list (in no particular order):

DXY Digital GmbH

Originally established in Cleveland over a decade ago by Daniel Young, DXY Digital were quick to spot Berlin’s booming tech and design scene and established their main European base there in 2013.

Like many progressive businesses, DXY maintain a flat team structure and have a focus on harnessing cutting edge tech. DXY currently specialise in apps focussed around medicine, business, and the ever-emerging Internet of Things (IoT) industry.

This communicative feel is also apparent in the company’s blog, which is updated regularly with industry info and interesting insights into how the agency works.

Top App Development Companies Boston

top-app-development-companies-boston

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that here at Kumulos we’ve been taking the time to highlight some of the awesome app work done by different mobile agencies around the world. A couple of weeks back, we turned our attention to Washington, DC and last week to New York. We’ve also highlighted agencies in Texas, the mid-West, Los AngelesSan Francisco, and the UK among others. This week, however, we wanted to turn our eye to Boston, Massachusetts and some of the great work being done there.

First founded by Puritan settlers in 1630, Boston, Massachusetts is one of the oldest cities in the United States. But don’t that that lull you into thinking that Beantown is stuck in the past. As one of the 25th largest metropolitan areas in the US, Boston is also home to over 2,000 startups and ranks number one in the US in preparedness for the digital economy. Let’s not forget to mention that with so many world class universities present, such as Cambridge, Harvard and MIT, Boston has a seemingly inexhaustible supply of the one thing that every top app agency needs – talent.

So grab a bowl of clam chowder (here’s President Kennedy’s favorite recipe) and lets take a look at our picks (in alphabetical order) for some of the top app development companies in Boston.

AndPlus

Founder Sean Mahoney, a developer, started AndPlus in 2009 with one thing in mind – making custom software easy. Because of this background, at AndPlus the battle cry is “good code.” Mahoney has put together a top notch team of coders, designers and developers all in-house at AndPlus. That means no freelancers, no outsourcing and no sub-contractors. Because of this, there isn’t a framework or a language that the team there can’t handle. AndPlus develops native applications for both iOS and Android, and also cross-platform applications such as Xamarin and PhoneGap. As they proclaim on their website, AndPlus “doesn’t do Angry Birds.” Instead, they focus on the hard stuff. Which is why companies and brands like the Harvard School of Public Health, Bloomberg and Medica trust them with their app development.

AMP AGENCY

The Big Apple! Home of the Yankees (Yes –
and also the Mets – we’re not trying to pick a fight here), the glittering lights of Broadway and, of course, the ubiquitous pizza slice.

New York has never had any problems with catching people’s attention – whether it’s all the tourists crowding into Times Square, or, in our case, a number of hard working app agencies who are looking to change the world one app at a time.

In 2015, we singled out some of the best app companies based in the US North East for recognition. We were all set to do the same this year, but after seeing all the awesome work coming out of NYC alone, we wanted to narrow our focus a bit and showcase some of (at least in our eyes) the rock star app development agencies based there.

So grab a slice of pizza and – if you were planning to do anything else for the next few minutes FUGGEDABOUTIT! Take a gander at our picks (in alphabetical order) for the top app development companies in NYC.

Led by CEO Jordan Edelson, a Forbes 30 under 30 entrepreneur, Appetizer develops for both web and mobile across platforms including iPhone, Android, Unity, Windows, WordPress, HTML, and Xamarin. In addition, they also develop 2D and 3D games, as well as creating applications for next generation technology and devices like the Occulus Rift, Samsung Gear, Apple Watch and Apple TV.  Besides development, their services include social media consulting, marketing and search engine & app store optimization. Entertainment, sports and music are some of their chief clients, with names like the NBA, Epic Records, and Universal Music Group, along with artists like Lady Gaga and 50 Cent.

Here’s a trailer for one of their games, Portalball, the world’s first augmented reality sci-fi baseball game.

APPLICO

Founded in 2009 by CEO Alex Moazed with nothing more than three credit cards and an idea, Applico has since launched over 350 apps for clients including Disney, DirectTV and HP.  Applico bills itself as the world’s first Platform Innovation company. Their core service is Platform Design – or BCaaS – “Business Creation as a Service”.  Platform design involves working with their clients to figure out which platform is right for them and how it can best be exploited. They’ve detailed this process in a book, Modern Monopolies, authored by Moazed and Applico Head of Platform, Nicholas Johnson. Of course, as their business name implies, Applico also develops across multiple platforms including Windows Phone, iPhone and Android as well as Phonegap and Xamarin. We wrote about Applico in our Best North East US App Agencies article in 2015, but wanted to point out that since then, Applico Exec Johnson has become the World’s first Pokemon Go master.
