Who We Are

We are a team of Johannesburg/ Pretoria-based designers, developers, marketeers and project managers. We work very closely with our large team of highly experienced developers based in India. This means you get the best of both worlds: one dedicated and accountable local project manager on your timezone as well as the cost savings, scalability and expertise of a large off-shore team.

Our Clients

The Sasol Young Explorer app [shortlisted for the MTN App of the Year Award 2015] was a challenging project both creatively and technically, and Penguin Random House needed the right app development partner to make it possible. We considered a number of app developers and were fortunate to find App Developer Studio (ADS), who met our creative, technical and commercial requirements. In the early scoping and planning stages ADS really helped with the UI and UX aspects and the feature specfications, leading to a solid technical brief which helped throughout the project. A highly iterative development approach, clear communication, and both teams working closely ensured the project was delivered on time and budget. ADS offer great app development as well as creative input and project management, which is a rare combination.
