Startup-friendly mobile app development.

App & Flow was founded in 2015 as a development team for hire. Right around the same time, Facebook open-sourced React Native. We’ve been building apps with it ever since. We landed our first YC client in 2017, which led to many more projects, several new hires, and a whole lot of gratitude that we get to do what we do every day. 

In general, we run our business according to two values: 1) No stupid rules, and 2) Treat clients the way we want to be treated.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The platform has yet to launch, but response to App & Flow’s work is positive. They are reactive, communicative, and quick to make necessary changes. They make recommendations and are willing to lead portions of the project.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder/CEO of a mobile app for consumers and businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App & Flow?

We needed help with frontend development. We worked on the interface with another company that was underperforming. We wanted a new agency to take over development and design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built a frontend in React Native for both Android and iOS. We gave them ideas of what we wanted to achieve and they made refinements. The app itself has some cool features. Everything is very detailed and fully transparent for users.

They also set up data analytics to give us insight on user preferences and put is in contact with third-party vendors that offer additional services.

What is the team composition?

We work with two people directly, and a third team member is involved behind the scenes. Our project manager and developer share responsibilities and their roles overlap somewhat.

How did you come to work with App & Flow?

Our first interaction was on Facebook. They’re clear communicators and were transparent from the very beginning.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November 2017. They will provide ongoing development work for at least a few more months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’re still in development, so there are no clear KPIs yet. We're extremely pleased with the quality of the work, their speed, and their communicativeness. They’re super reactive and push to eliminate bugs early. They make changes based on our feedback.

How did App & Flow perform from a project management standpoint?

The CEO/project manager is an incredible communicator. He understands our issues and is good at problem solving. We communicate by phone, email, or in person and they address our questions quickly via GitHub. They’re very easy to do business with.

They aligned with our schedule and we meet every other week. They’re flexible, know our expectations, and deliver high-quality work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Communication and ownership of the product have been strong since the beginning. They provide great recommendations and feedback and are willing to lead parts of the project. They can interact with the designer and give directions without our intervention and are extremely professional.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We’ve had a really good experience and there’s very little we’d improve. As they grow, their capacity becomes more flexible, but we would still like more bandwidth to accelerate some of the components of the product.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Take advantage of their communication style and their openness. Share your expectations and ask questions. They’re very good at understanding your perspective and handling your issues. They will provide a clear agenda and make you feel comfortable.
