Let us help you to design, build, launch your app
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 five 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 and have level 4 BEE status. We are proudly South African.
App Developer Studio was created up in 2014 by Rob Maclean after many people had approached us to help them build apps like our highly successful Africa: Live app which was awarded the Best Travel App 2014 (South African Tourism, Visa International). Until then we had only built apps for ourselves, which we continue to do to this day. This gives us a very commercial approach to building apps, which we pass on to our client projects.
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 as James Thomas (2015), Grant Wright (2016), Valentina Watkins, Deepa Naran and Chad de Jager (2017).
