Process

Apptitude’s dedicated team works to keep you updated as your project moves through the development process. Our signature Live Mockups of your app display right on your device so you’ll never have to wonder what everything will look like when your app is published.
The ride doesn’t stop there! With our new hosting and integrated analytics dashboards, we take your project beyond the initial launch for a lifetime of support and dedication to your brand’s online goals. Check out our great monthly rates for hosting and insights.

Design

We work hard to place equal emphasis on the inner workings of the code and the outer look and feel of your design. No more guesswork, no more wondering how the app will look when it’s on your device. You’ll be able to see just what you’re getting every step of the way.

The Difference

In addition to a decade’s worth of experience creating websites and apps for some of the biggest names in the industry, there are lots of things that make working with Apptitude unique and enjoyable. We emphasize agility over rigid technical specifications, flat quotes over hourly rates, and a fun, friendly relationship with our customers that is unmatched in the industry.
