Custom Software Development

Web Application Development

We have been building web apps / web applications for over a decade now and our skills in this area mean that a number of web agencies in the Manchester area have relied on us as their “go to web development agency” to help them behind the scenes to deliver the complex bespoke web functionality they have promised their customers.  We work our web app development magic for Manchester web agencies out of sight of their customers and our web development rates mean the web agencies can still make a good profit.  Everybody wins.  Want to tell us about your web app project?

Mobile App Design

Whether it’s a hybrid app or a native iOS app for iPhones and iPads or a native Android app for Android smartphones and tablets we can do it all.  We offer UX / UI design services as part of the app design process but we are happy to deal with your preferred designer or use your designs and wireframes if you have them already designed. If you are looking for a Manchester app designer then consider contacting Manchester Apps because we can also help with any backend database design or portal development work, we can also tend to any API integrations that often trip up other app designers that are more design oriented rather than technical.
