Feedback summary: 

The app is still in development, but the stunning design and user-friendly navigation are already receiving praise. App-Scoop is exceptionally organized and meticulous in their work, so their success is unsurprising.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-creator of the SPRK, an upcoming app that serves as a location-based networking hub. I handle business operations while my partner oversees the technical side.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App-Scoop?

Although my business partner has some knowledge of C++, it wasn’t enough to produce the high-quality app that we envisioned. We needed a company that could build us a user-friendly app from scratch.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

As our main app developer, App-Scoop’s scope of work was all-encompassing. They began the process by asking us a stream of probing questions to fine-tune our vision. Their team didn’t hesitate to provide insight on more effective methods for an engaging experience. We originally wanted to use the proximity setting on the map plugin to drive the app’s functionality, but they showed us how allowing users to check into locations would make for a better experience. They also incorporated our specifications. We wanted to attract more sophisticated users, so their developers designed an eye-catching UI with an elegant color scheme and logo. The selfie sign-in is one of the more innovative features; users are prompted to take a current photo to access their account. Once the login feature and chat lobby are developed, we plan to release the app on Android and iOS platforms.

What is the team composition?

They have a designated project manager who serves as our main point of contact, but there’s also some occasional crossover with App-Scoop’s CEO.

How did you come to work with App-Scoop?

We were initially looking for a local app developer to take on the project, but we found that most were charging exorbitant prices for mediocre work. Instead of settling, we decided to shop around until we discovered the perfect fit. Coincidentally, I ran into a friend who was also building an app. She gave App-Scoop a glowing recommendation, so I immediately researched them and their past work. Their portfolio was extensive, diverse, and high-quality. After reaching out to them, they responded to us quickly with a competitive quote.

How much have you invested with them?

So far, we’ve spent $16,000 to develop a basic version of the app. Once we’re ready to build a full version, the price is expected to increase to more than $30,000. We currently have a payment plan that offers bonuses when sprint goals are reached.

What is the status of this engagement?

They’ve been working on the app since July 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our investors responded positively to the wireframes that we presented to them. They were mostly in awe of the clean, sophisticated UI. We were also able to play around with a beta version of the app. A few pages required more animation, but the overall design is stunning. The user-friendly navigation was also a great sign that the final product will meet our expectations.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

We were immediately impressed by their organizational skills and their overall approach to management. They mapped out the project’s timeline at the beginning of the project and worked diligently to stay true to the estimated time frames. Whether they were answering our questions or providing status updates, they maintained frequent and honest communication with our team.  We also appreciated them for asking us to clarify specifications that confused them instead of blindly developing an incorrect feature.

What did you find most impressive about them?

App-Scoop made it clear that they’re determined for success. Whereas most vendors would listen to our idea and build the app to specification, their team asked us in-depth questions that helped us reshape our original vision into a more engaging product. Their attention to detail is a great asset to their extraordinary organizational skills.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have any legitimate issues with them, but I wish their office were closer to ours. We’re constantly interacting with them, so it would be nice to have the option to meet them in person.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Having a fully-developed app concept before entering the project will help make their information gathering process less intense. However, it’s also important to be flexible with the vision. Our best ideas were conceived after receiving their feedback.

Feedback summary: 

The test results have been positive and the project is on schedule to be completed before its deadline. App-Scoop is highly responsive to feedback and well organized in terms of their communication and work ethic. These qualities are key to the success of this collaboration.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president and co-founder of a cryptocurrency company in the e-sports space. Our goal is to become the standard cryptocurrency in the industry.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App-Scoop?

We needed to build an application for iOS and Android devices that acted as a wallet for our cryptocurrency.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

App-Scoop is building our app from start to finish. The team created the wireframes for the platform and designed its interface. They’re programming the frontend and backend to support all of the functionalities we requested. The app allows users to send and receive our cryptocurrency, but also supports another mainstream currency like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. In the app, users can stake our tokens to earn more on their investment.

What is the team composition?

I am in contact with a project manager and about four representatives from App-Scoop, but I’m sure there are more in the background.

How did you come to work with App-Scoop?

We found them through a Google search, along with about four other agencies. We interviewed each and ultimately decided to work with App-Scoop based on their responsiveness and their level of potential. They seemed to have the necessary capabilities to complete our project.

How much have you invested with them?

We started working together in June 2018 and the project is ongoing.

What is the status of this engagement?

So far, we’ve invested between $50,000–$200,000 on this project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Currently, we’re still in the testing phase. The App-Scoop team is conducting internal tests and based on their feedback and some screenshots from the app, I’m happy with the direction in which we’re headed. They are receptive to my comments and we consistently collaborate to produce high-quality results.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

The communication between our two teams is consistent and organized. We schedule weekly phone conferences, but reach out via email if we have any immediate questions or needs.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their level of communication is key to our partnership and the success of our project.

Are there any areas they could improve?

App-Scoop is still relatively new to the blockchain space, but it’s such a new industry that most companies are in the same position. They could benefit from a little more experience, but we are all growing together.

Feedback summary: 

The app is still in development, but App-Scoop has delivered strong designs and wireframes to this point. App-Scoop is a communicative and organized partner. They feature skilled developers who offer smart solutions and impressive mobile products.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a consultant for ROVE Fitness. We are introducing a piece of full-body fitness equipment into the home gym marketplace in October 2018.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App-Scoop?

We are creating a mobile app and a web app that can support the users of our product. We think it's very important that the user has access to videos to utilize the fitness equipment because it's a unique system. We want the app to make the equipment more user-friendly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We held initial discovery meetings for us to outline how our ideal mobile app would function and be designed. They presented us with options for the wireframes, and we supplied them with logos and video content to be incorporated into the app. The app will contain assembly instructions in addition to video workouts for certain parts of the body, different days of the week, and even for different sports. The app is made for both Android and iOS, and all content can be accessed using the web app, as well.

What is the team composition?

My main points of contact are the founder and a senior sales consultant. There is also a team of developers behind the scenes.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $50,000-$60,000 Canadian dollars ($38,000-$45,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

Our project started in February 2018 and is ongoing. We have yet to fully implement the video content.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The work they’ve done to this point is impressive. The user journey within the app, and the overall design, is well-done. The wireframe that they’ve provided functions well. We have not reached the testing stage yet, but given their performance so far, I have no concerns.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

The bulk of our communication is through conference calls and emails, but they have also come to our offices. We’re not a technical group, but App-Scoop has been helpful in guiding us through this process.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They run their business with passion. They are organized, communicative, and personable. They have truly listened to us and understand what our goals are.

Any advice for potential customers?

I have people in different industries that I trust because they are reliable, reasonably priced, and organized, and App-Scoop is one of those firms. I rely on them and would highly recommend them.

App-Scoop exceeded expectations and has impressed both the partners and investors. They not only improved the app, but they also reduced the overall cost. They actively engage with the project scope, making suggestions to create the best product possible.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the CEO of In App Dynamics, a company that offers mobile templated app solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App-Scoop?

Our programmers have some limitations in certain markets, so we needed a partner to find a better way to deliver our creative team’s solutions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had a blueprint for a couple of features we wanted to add to our platform, and App-Scoop walked us through how to deliver them in a cost-effective way while also improving them. Our app already existed, but App-Scoop enhanced the product, making it a more effective B2B templated app solution. They worked on the UX, design, and logo creation.

What is the team composition?

I have two main points of contact, and they had a team of developers under them.

How did you come to work with App-Scoop?

We found App-Scoop online and were considering three other companies, as well. When I spoke to App-Scoop face-to-face, I was impressed by what they could do and the quality of their services compared to the other firms. We had a tight deadline to deliver the new features, and App-Scoop was the only agency that could guarantee they’d finish on time, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $200,000 CAD ($150,684 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since December 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our partnership has been extremely positive. Our partners and investors have been more than happy with App-Scoop’s work. Their insight has been valuable not only for delivering better customer engagement features but in making sure we stay within budget. Their code is high-quality and more than satisfactory. We haven’t had any problems with them.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management is incredible. They promptly solve any issues that arise. We’ve met in person a few times but mostly communicate via email or phone.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They executed on our blueprint beyond anything we thought it would be. They’re easy to work with and aren’t afraid to speak their mind. They offer suggestions and opinions to make the product as good as possible. We’ve had a fantastic relationship.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Have a clear vision of your project goals. Ask for their feedback and suggestions because they have great ideas.

I’m the creative director for a company that builds different apps, effects, and augmented reality installations for the creative sector. Our work is at the intersection of art and technology.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App-Scoop?

We had an Android and iOS app with some technical issues. We needed a partner to solve them and to do some software integration, as well.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

App-Scoop has been in charge of both iOS and Android development from the beginning of the project. Our team also works with them on UI/UX. They developed an interactive map feature and a specific backend that integrated with our systems toolkit (STK).

The app is like Yelp for influencers—it tells people about places to go in different cities that are suggested by certain individuals. We just finished the beta version and are currently onboarding different influencers as we do our soft launch.

What is the team composition?

They have eight people on their team. I communicate mainly with the project manager and the lead developer.

How did you come to work with App-Scoop?

A reputable tech company in our area introduced them to us. We reached out to App-Scoop, spoke a few times, and moved forward together.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

App-Scoop addresses issues in a timely manner. We use project management tools to track updates, reporting, and progress. We have new releases every few weeks, and App-Scoop makes sure new features are incorporated and bugs are fixed.

We’ve met with their team a few times in person, and they’ve been fantastic every time. Communication with both the project manager and lead developer is consistent and flows well.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder and CMO of iPOLPO. We’re an app that sells photos by time and location worldwide. This kind of photo market is a completely new concept that doesn’t use albums or hashtags.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App-Scoop?

We had an iOS app but needed to find a reliable developer in our area to create the Android version.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our internal team developed a basic website for the app and we worked with another development firm to complete the iOS version. App-Scoop is developing the Android app by improving on the iOS model instead of just replicating it. They’re enhancing the UX by developing multiple design pages and suggesting we eliminate nonessential features like the Facebook login.

As a privately funded startup, we don’t have the obscenely large budgets of many of our competitors. As a result, we have to be selective in the types of app features we develop and are moving forward in stages. We’re in discussions with App-Scoop to have them revamp our website and iOS app once the Android project is complete.

What is the team composition?

Their CEO is our sole contact for the engagement.

How did you come to work with App-Scoop?

We started interviewing people, but it was difficult to find someone who could guarantee quality work. I went to a tech meetup and exchanged information with their CEO. Later, a colleague of mine recommended them completely independent of that experience. We reached out, got a quote, and discussed the scope of work. We found App-Scoop to be professional and decided to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $20,000–$25,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2017 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This version hasn’t launched yet, but we have 10 professional photographers who’ve been testing it throughout development. They're incredibly excited about its functionalities and flexibility. It can be used by professional photographers with big cameras or more amateur enthusiasts who use their phones to take pictures. Each approach allows users to instantly sell time-sensitive photos based on location without having to negotiate through emails or type lengthy hashtags. App-Scoop is doing a great job melding the details together and creating an intuitive product. We’re incredibly satisfied with design and functionality.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

Our lead contact is very thorough and responds to emails almost right away. He’s very involved in the process. They do development in India, but the CEO communicates and delivers the product to us. As a customer, we couldn’t be happier with the process, ease, and responsiveness of App-Scoop. We've had glitches along the way because the technology is unique and can’t just be lifted from another program and dropped into our development code. It's a lengthy process that requires more than just copy-and-pasting. They thoughtfully consider what’s been done on our website and translate it to Android.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’m tremendously impressed with their professionalism. Based on my limited experience in the tech world, a lot of vendors loosely approach projects to a fault. We feared a developer would deplete our funds and ask for more with only half the project complete. That is not the case with App-Scoop. They’re professional and deliver according to schedules and budget. Additionally, they stand behind their word, which is invaluable.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We noticed a few typos in the latest version, but they were easily catchable. Overall, they've done an excellent job for us and we're excited about the Android launch.

Development stabilized overall performance and increasing overall capabilities significantly. Early deliveries and independent mindset helped make post-launch testing successful. Expect passionate service and a genuine interest in achieving set objects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I founded Tnight, a mobile app solution for nightlife and venue managements. Users can: reserve a table, add themselves to the guest list, purchase bottles, and notify friends.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App Scoop?

We had unreliable developers who consistently missed deadlines and raised prices erratically.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We provided wireframes and UI recommendations. They took those to restructure the backend and make it scalable for ongoing development. Although we suggest certain modifications, we ultimately follow their lead.

The team finished Phase 1 deliveries. We just started Phase 2, for which they’re developing new features as our sole content creators.

The app is live on iOS and Android. We also have an iPad venue management system that operates as a POS system.

What is the team composition?

We speak directly with the two founders.

How did you come to work with App Scoop?

We found them on Clutch. We wanted to work with a smaller team that would invest more time and effort with us as a boutique company.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent over $100,000 to date. The final budget is $150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Work started October 2017 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Development has been nothing but bliss. They’ve exceeded expectations while erasing all previous issues; the team goes above and beyond.

Although we don’t have real metrics this early out of beta, increased capabilities are noticeable. The app is very reliable and has upgraded speed. Comments we previously received about crashes are now gone in user feedback. The first test event reported flawless functionality.

How did App Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

They're lovely guys who are dedicated and hardworking. It’s exactly what we needed. They hit every target with minimal guidance. We speak weekly and chat daily via phone, email, and text. We’ve discusses other platforms, but these communication tools work well for our familiar relationship.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They usually deliver early and are able to make small adjustments within 30 minutes. It’s a huge relief to not worry about the development side anymore. We had lost all hope before hiring them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We’re completely thrilled with everything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Meet in person because they’re very passionate, which doesn’t always come through over the phone. They’re genuinely excited to achieve your goals and build a relationship.

I wanted to take a program that I had in the paper world and make it digital. People loved the program but didn’t like the big book they had to carry around. We decided it would be best to have the program available on the phone. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

App-Scoop created a real estate application and a life and vision board app that I created for my life coaching business. They were great and they had a very fast response and turnaround time. Whenever there were things that were being developed they were always in communication.

For the vision board application, I sat with them and talked about what I wanted. They set up the project files and they created the outline for me to show me what they were doing. The follow up went extremely well. The Android application was done first.

What is the team dynamic?

I never met the developers but did meet with two consultants that handled the project.

How did you come to work with App-Scoop?

We were referred to me by someone who was working with them.

How much have you invested with them?

Somewhere around $35,000 to $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project started in March 2016 and ended March 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven’t started promoting the application yet. We have hired a marketing company to promote the real estate platform. I am a broker-owner of three RE/MAX franchisees and all the clients and brokerages that are using the application are loving it. It is effective and simple to use.

The vision board has been launched and we have gotten 4,000 downloads and the reviews have been four out of five stars. The vision board even has the capability to download video and audio.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

Whenever I would request a physical meeting, App-Scoop would meet with me. The meetings were set up to make sure that everything was on track. They would even meet me on Sundays. There was no miscommunication.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I found their ability to listen to my specifications and delivering products that I wanted most impressive.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Asking for more details, in the beginning, would have avoided a whole bunch of meetings after the initial discussion.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The app has not yet been launched, but the team has been proactive in making changes as feedback is given. App-Scoop is responsive and communicative. As a company, they are very active in Vancouver and work hard on start-up projects.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder and CEO of Ambitionary. It’s a marketing network for people to find each other for collaboration on projects and ventures. For example, if you’re looking to open an ice cream truck business but don’t know the ins and outs of the business, you can go to my website and make a posting. You can share your idea and what you’re trying to accomplish. Then you find people you need for it. You can find somebody who has an ice cream truck, somebody who makes ice cream, and maybe a lawyer, accountant, advisor, or intern. You find the people you need to help you make it happen.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with App-Scoop?

I am not a developer and so I needed someone to build my web app.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I wanted basic functionalities. The app needed simple features like messaging, posting, and log-in capabilities. It was very basic. 

What is the team dynamic? 

I don’t know how many developers are working on the project, but the two founders are managing the project, Pav and Paul [Co-Founders, App-Scoop].

How did you come to work with App-Scoop?

I was introduced to them by a mutual friend. I’ve never worked with any other developers.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $10,000 and $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in February 2017. The work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project is taking longer than expected. We haven’t launched yet and so we don’t have any users yet. I gave App-Scoop feedback on their services and they are working on making appropriate changes.

How did App-Scoop perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very responsive. We communicate a few times every week.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are really out there and present in the Vancouver startup community. They show up everywhere. Every time I go to an event, these guys are there. They really work hard.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re a young company. There are things they can improve, but off the top of my head, I can’t think of anything.
