Apple iOS Development


We have five iOS Applications currently available in the Apple App Store…

Dual Timer

Dual Timer is a stopwatch, with Start/Stop, Lap, Pause and Reset functions - twice (one blue, and one yellow).
A simple idea - this app is very popular, used for everything from cooking through gym to timing concrete curing!

Meeting Analyser

Meeting Analyser was devised at the request of a Client who is involved in staff motivation, behavioural analysis, etc.. It is designed to be used to capture data about the behaviour of teams in meetings, then to provide metrics which are used for identifying areas of improvement.

My Event Counter

My Event Counter just counts things - if you have a 4 inch display you can count eight things - a 3.5 inch display only lets you count six. Each channel can be renamed and the count reset individually or collectively. Inspired by the flat, functional design keys provided by Apple in the appearance of iOS 7, this simple yet elegant app sells very well. Great for replacing five-bar gate tally counting, like perhaps school geography field trips counting cars, lorries and so on.
We have had a number of queries about the next version of My Event Counter - which will well and truly be “all singing, all dancing” - so are trying to juggle things around to get this done soon.

Working Memory Test

Working Memory Test is a game which tests your ability to memorise nine numbers in nine squares and which number is in which position. Playing involves simply tapping the squares in ascending numerical order. Simple, right? Maybe not as simple as you think. Check out YouTube ("ESL Chimp's Memory") to see a chimp in Professor Tetsuo Matsuzawa's lab (at the Kyoto Primate Research Institute in Japan) memorise nine numbers in 0.65 seconds in a similar test. He does this repeatedly.

TV Stopwatch
(sorry, no App Store previews available for tvOS apps)

Apple asked us if we would consider developing for the New Apple TV (which is actually version 4) in advance of the product launch in October 2015. We agreed and our first tvOS app, TV Stopwatch, was approved by Apple for sale in their TV App Store before the Apple TV was on sale. It’s a simple stopwatch, with pause and lap functions - but of course is as big as your TV screen.

We are always open to ideas for new applications - or proposals for some form of collaboration - please don’t hesitate to get in touch to find out more, without obligation, of course. We have a long-established process for exchanging non-disclosure agreements and setting up Contracts for development quickly and without fuss.
