About UsThe preferred developers of leading brands in Africa
Let us design develop host market your app
We combine our experience of developing award-winning apps with the cost efficiencies of an off-shore development team to launch your successful app. Whether you are a large corporate or a bootstrapping start-up, our in-depth knowledge of the leading platforms and languages are invaluable in selecting the right approach, defining the MVP and executing effectively.
Who We Are
We are a team of South Africa-based designers, developers, marketeers and project managers. We work very closely with our large team of highly experienced developers based in India, who we have worked with for more than six years. This means you get the best of both worlds: one dedicated, experienced, hands-on and accountable local project manager on your timezone with the cost savings, scale and technical expertise of a large off-shore team.
App Developer Studio is a subsidiary of Satpack Travel, a South African registered company established in 2008 (CIPRO number: 2008/260088/23), based in Johannesburg. We are VAT registered, tax compliant and have level 4 BEE status. We are proudly South African.

Meet Our Team
App Developer Studio was created up in 2014 by Rob Maclean, a Masters graduate from Oxford University with 10 years experience in financial services in the UK, Europe and SA.
From the very begining we have worked with the same development team in India, under our CTO, Pravin Prasad. This team has grown into double figures now, depending upon the volume of projects we have at any time.
Since then our SA team has rapidly expanded, being joined by James Thomas (2015), Grant Wright (2016), Valentina Watkins, Deepa Naran, Chad de Jager (2017), Tresha Damon (2018).
