We make mobile apps

Chili focuses on mobile applications development, and our high level of competence is demonstrated by our cooperation with well-known companies such as Webmoney, First Swiss Card, Fastrope Labs, Ideal Marketing Company and Tecco and TONS of clients under NDA.

It is possible that you will also wish to join said list, since as far as development is concerned, we perform the entire project cycle ourselves. You need not worry about the details: you are a professional in your own field, and we will help you take your rightful place in the world of mobile applications. Project conception, design, prototyping, development, testing and release in App Store and Google Play – we take care of all these things, while you focus on other important matters.

We take your specific features and iOS and Android platform development recommendations into account, ensuring the smooth running of your mobile application on any of your customer’s devices. Thanks to our vast experience in social and financial application development, our specialists adopt an individual approach to your order and, by default, will avoid many of the mistakes commonly made by less experienced companies in their work. More than five years worth of experience in mobile application speak in our favour, and our general experience in IT project development spans more than a decade. Our specialists worked for companies such as Odnoklassniki (Mail.ru group), Dukascopy Swiss Bank and Qiwi Wallet – which is another strong argument in favour of working with us.

We like to share our experience with other developers, that’s why we organise “Mobile Developers Latvia” Meetup. Also we’ve started our open source activity – Chili on GitHub.

Bezvests - Application for finding missing people

The Story behind

Every day people are going missing and unfortunately will keep going missing, that’s the sad reality we live in. It can be elderly people, kids, people with disabilities or someone who is in trouble

What is really of any importance, is that the family that came to such distress situation is not left alone, without support, help, and hope.

Bezvests.lv is a volunteer and charity organisation that is searching for missing people in Latvia and we wanted to help them out with that important mission.

Chili Labs created solution:

Usually searching is done by the local police department or by a group of trained individuals like bezvests.lv with strong GPS tools to mark locations and communication devices.
That limits the resources and unfortunately narrows the search area to territory that can be searched by a limited amount of people.

We have realized, all of us have a device that is in their pocket...

Soap4.me

New TV experience

Do you like watching great tv series in a high quality? So are we!
That’s why decided to collaborate with streaming service soap4.me to bring you the ultimate viewing experience.
We present you a soap4.me apple tv application!

This project was a great opportunity to sharpen our skills in development applications for TVs.
Since Apple TV platform has just only recently become available for development it was sort of a little challenge to explore this new technology and test how our knowledge and methodologies could be applied to something other than creating applications for handheld devices. And results were fantastic!
As Apple has promised, with an array of new methods and solutions, developing for TV was a pleasurable and fun experience.

Kool

Task

Kool Latvija is a new Latvian gas station network with a unique market approach: cheaper premium quality gas + food made of fresh local products = happy, loyal customers. They approached us with a task of creating a simple one-level landing to introduce themselves to potential customers.

After that, we assembled a responsive website that looks awesome and works well on desktop/tablet/mobile screens.
