Making an Impact with Technology.

Appetiser is a digital agency built by entrepreneurs looking to push the boundaries of what an app development partner can be on both a local and global level. 

Technology empowers our clients and our team to make a difference where it matters most to them. This is how our success is measured.

Together, we have the power to make the impact we can’t make alone.

How We Achieve that Impact…

Continuous Improvement

Success today means nothing tomorrow. We never stop learning how to improve every area of our company, so you get the results you deserve.

Open Collaboration & Communication

To get the best results, we lead with your vision, yet are committed to the tough decisions that give you the highest chance of success.

Full Journey Partner

Your startup journey isn’t only about designs, then it’s done. Success is a process that needs constant attention and specialists will support you throughout.

Only Design Excellence

You can build your future success on the foundation of brilliant design. Our excellence is born from years of pushing the boundaries of what data influenced design can achieve.

Tech Perfection

Quality is in the details and our in-house coding gold standards demand perfection. Only the top 1% of developers globally meet this benchmark.

Care for the World Around Us…

Appetiser Care

Our team reached their potential because they had access to quality education. Yet in the Philippines, millions of children have little or no access at all. 

So we’ve launched Appetiser Care, sponsoring the education of a Filipino child for every member of our team.

We hope to give a little back to a country that has given us so much.

Paper Free

It’s our responsibility to protect the environment as we grow. That’s why we pledged to be a 100% paper-free company from day 1 and are looking for more ways to reduce our impact on the world around us.

And Grow Together

Appetiser University

We launched Appetiser University as part of our drive to be better tomorrow than today and to instil a culture of learning throughout the fabric of the company. Working across departments, specialists from within each team led the initiative. Now, as our knowledge grows, so too will our team.

Our People are the True Heroes

Recognised for Excellence

4.9 stars from 42 Google Reviews

I’ve worked with several other app development companies on various projects and Appetiser stands head and shoulders above them all.

Initial designs and prototypes were produced very quickly and they were fantastic. Development updates come through weekly, we’re very happy with the first version of our app. Michael’s knowledge and experience are invaluable and we’re looking forward to continuing our app journey with Appetiser.

Vello Technologies

Appetiser have been exceptional in bringing our business idea to life. From initial concept, though the development and now to public release, the team at Appetiser have not missed a beat with their friendly, solution focus, customer centric approach. It is easy to see why Appetiser is the number one App developer in Australia. Although we have achieved many things together over the past 12 months, I believe our biggest achievements are yet to come.

Stephen Procter

Cannot recommend Appetiser enough. Such a talented team, the best app developers in Australia. Michael empowers everyone in his team as well as the client (us) that we are working together on something special. Out of his confidence and positivity, magic happens!

Joanna Allen

Recommend this team unreservedly, they are amazingly talented developers that do very good work. Communication and advice has been top notch, an essential element during your app journey. More than a development house, the knowledge within this team can help guide your business with a holistic lens. Very pleasant to interact with also.
