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.

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.

How long does it take to build a mobile app?

Speed to market for mobile apps makes us different from other app development companies. With Appetiser Baseplate ™, the team can perform mobile app development as fast as any competitors we’ve seen. Average projects can be launched in less than 3 months, but it may also take longer depending on the complexity of your app requirements and features.

Do you provide mobile app maintenance and support after the launch?

Appetiser Hypercare ™, our exclusive process, allows clients to engage the assigned engineering team in refining the mobile app to align with the users’ preferences. Further details will be provided upon engagement with your team.

We specialise in mobile app development using Swift for iOS app development, Kotlin for Android app development, and React Native for mobile apps. These technologies are renowned for their stability. 

How do you guarantee the mobile apps you build align with the client’s goals?

You have direct communication with your mobile app development team. The complexity of the app’s size and requirements will also determine who will be part of the team. But generally, you have a high-performing team comprising at least a project manager who will collaborate with the iOS or Android developers, a QA tester, an app designer, and a product manager — all focused on realizing your app vision.

As a mobile app development-focused firm, Appetiser understands that the cost of your app project is influenced by various factors, including app complexity and feature set.

At Appetiser, our mission is to empower our partners to realize their app concepts at a reduced cost compared to full development. We kick off our app development journey with a robust design phase, constructing a functional and iterative prototype that provides valuable market insights and facilitates funding opportunities.

However, our commitment continues. In addition to app design and development, Appetiser offers coaching and mentoring services to assist individuals, startups, and businesses in securing app funding.
