Why Mobile Apps?
Where websites have taken us over the past decade, apps will take us over the next decade. With 46 percent of American adults owning a smartphone, apps are the wave of the future. As of 2012, Apple’s iTune’s App Store was driving 46 million app downloads per day. People use apps to check their email, review their stock options, check out movie show times, and even book a reservation at their favorite restaurant. We want to be where people are going, and we want to help you get there too.
We’re an Indianapolis-based app developer with a huge reach. In 2007, we started out building websites and producing videos. Two years ago, we launched our very first mobile app—iRib, a custom app for the Rib America Festival. Since then, we’ve exploded both as a company and as an app developer and now produce industry-leading mobile apps (or “killer apps” as we like to call them) for some of the top businesses and industries both in Indiana and around the country.
We’re a casual group. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We do take our work seriously. We’re self-starters. We’re creative types. We’re not too nerdy. We’re young. We’re older. We’re painters, musicians, djs, and cyclists. We love building apps. But most of all, we love making our clients happy.

If you like coming up with quirky ideas, resonate with a casual workplace, and enjoy a fast-paced challenge, you might be a fit for us. We're always on the look-out for creative types with savvy developer skills and who don't mind the occasional nerf ball to the head. Check out our available positions.
