This new research identifies small, high-end app development agencies with exceptional records of client service.

WASHINGTON, December 17th, 2015 — Today Clutch published its first report highlighting the Top Boutique App Development Agencies, characterized as the strongest firms with fewer than 50 employees. The research leverages Clutch’s Leaders Matrix methodology, which maps each firm's focus in app development and user experience design against their ability to deliver on client expectations.

The leading Boutique App Development Agencies are:

Blue Whale Apps, Dom and Tom, Stanfy, Savvy Apps, Eight Bit Studios, Dockyard,, Small Planet Digital, MEDL Mobile, SFCD, PhD Labs, Infrared5, Ethervision, UpTop, and APPEK Mobile Apps.

“Boutique app development agencies typically have the ability to provide clients with more personal attention and are able to support a more nimble development process.” stated Ryan Stevens, Senior Analyst at Clutch. “The Boutique Agencies featured in this segment are some of the strongest firms featured on Clutch and frequently compete with their larger counterparts.”

Clutch analysts conducted a thorough assessment of the firms’ capabilities based on a multitude of factors including market presence, company experience, client feedback, and industry recognition. The report is Clutch’s final app development agency report of the year, but Clutch’s effort to identify leading companies will continue into 2016. Clutch encourages firms with a proven track record of success to apply for inclusion in future updates.
