Looking for an iPhone or Android App for your business? Following the creation of our Montgomery Moon app, the team at Tidy Design has been longing to get stuck into another mobile application.
Portsmouth Language College was one of our first clients. Over the space of five years the TEG (Tompkins Education Group) brand has continued to grow, develop and impress, he now runs multiple colleges across the south.
David Tompkins and I have regular meetings (often after office hours and in the pub) to reflect on life and business. Although a mobile app had been on the cards for sometime, it was in November 2012 when we finally got to work on it.
As an existing client of Tidy Design we really wanted to help, however based on the initial spec, budget and expectations I did recommend he shop around. Sadly we could not commit to it.
A couple of weeks passed as I looked to outsource the work to companies / freelancers we know. Quotes came in between 5K and 15K, the lead-time from one iOS development team was 7 months… All in all, it was not looking good!
Taking everything into account (most importantly our business relationship and history with TEG) we decided to take on the project. It was agreed a watered down version of the initial spec for iPhone and Android devices.
The end result was pretty good for both parties! We learnt a lot about app development, device requirements and are now looking into other app ideas! TEG Social has an app for its students, this built within a couple of months and way cheaper than any app development quotes received.
If you are looking for an iPhone or Android app then please do send us your spec. We would be delighted to have a look and possibly chat more about your project over an espresso at our office in Old Portsmouth.
