Did you notice that the two apps above are the same brand? The one on the left is custom. That’s the power of custom design and development.

Why Go for a Custom App?

Your Vision, Protected.

Your app should adjust to fit your vision, not the other way around. With custom, you’re in complete control over direction and features, so you don’t have to settle for an app that’s not yours.

Quality to Beat the Norm

User expectations are increasingly demanding, and copy/paste apps just don’t cut in anymore. Custom app development creates tailored experiences for your unique audience that stands out in the app store.

Flexibility as You Grow

The needs and behaviours of your users change over time, so you need to adapt fast. Custom app developments are flexible and built to iterate so you can meet new demands head-on and gain an advantage over the off-the-shelf competition.

We Are Appetiser

Working with a partner that understands the demands of your app development journey is the key to getting results. Appetiser is a company built by entrepreneurs. We’ve walked in your shoes and know what it takes to achieve maximum impact with your startup at each step of the way.

Our quality is your secret success strategy.

Get Results With Custom App Development

Strategy by Data

The road to market is full of tough choices. Our data-informed approach removes the guesswork and gives you the confidence that each decision is the right one. Surround yourself with an expert team of designers, developers and managers that have used data to help 100s of apps dominate the app stores.

Designs That Get You Noticed

You only have seconds to grab users’ attention, so our standout designs are vital to your App Store success. You’ll work with a team that’s ranked in the top 10 globally for their designs. No other Australian company is even in the top 100.

Custom Development Distinction

A flawed app leads to high uninstall rates and a poor store rating. Your app needs to be stable and bug-free to keep users coming back. We run a coding challenge to recruit only the top 1% of developers to work with us, so you know you’re getting the best.

Get Ahead With Agile

Even though it’s custom, that doesn’t mean it takes forever. Get ahead of the competition with our rapid, agile Kanban process optimised in-house to cut development times by 50%. See tangible progress each week and launch on the app stores in next to no time.

Recognised For Excellence

4.9 in 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.
