Development



We are currently engaged to write a suite of test software for London Underground, involving coding for Windows, Apple iOS and Linux (in Python, C and bash).
We now have five Apple iOS apps published, four for iPhone/iPad and one for the new Apple TV.

A number of our Development services are shown on the menu to the right.

As well as being registered to develop for Apple (iOS (including tvOS), Mac OS X and WebApps), we are also registered with Oculus (for Rift Virtual Reality development), Google (for Android), Symbian (aka Psion), Microsoft, Anoto and BlackBerry.

Our personnel also are encouraged to enter the
Google CodeJam competition every year. Not won yet but have qualified for higher rounds!!
