You have the next big app idea – but yet you lack the technical expertise. We did the research and are going to showcase the top app development agencies in Berlin.
Before that, let’s find out what you should look out for when choosing an app development agency.
There are three major points to look out for in Product Development Agencies.
These points are:
The First Impression
Case Studies showcase what clients the agency acquired. Many known clients can be a good sign, as working with bigger companies is a sign of professional work.
However, this shouldn’t be the most important thing you should look at, as bigger clients are not equal to delivering the best work. It could just mean that the agency is good at marketing and sales.
What you can learn from case studies is how the agency operates. Look at what points they highlight to find out where their priorities lie. Consider if it aligns with what you imagine for your app. You should also download the published apps of the agency to see if they meet your standards.
Take a look at the About Us page and find out who is part of the team. You can already conclude how they work by looking at the composition of the team.
For example, do they employ UX Designers? This is a sign that they put value in not just a functional product, but one that feels delightful to use.
If you consider using an agency, have a first call where you get to know the company. Ask difficult questions and see how they react. The first impression is valuable – you don’t want to work with an agency that you don’t feel full confidence in.
Now that you know what to look out for, here are some of the Top App Development Agencies in Berlin. The list is in no particular order.
Dynamo Partners has mastered the art of asking questions – be it in analytics or business. This approach allows them to build the optimal plan to build the optimal product – and improve it even further after the launch.
Dynamo Partners’s team combines work experience from roles at companies like Gameloft, Nokia, Jamba and Axel Springer. Their client portfolio includes trustworthy brands such as Lufthansa, Fraport, Xing and Siemens.
Novoda is a big Product Development Agency with offices in not only Berlin, but also London, Liverpool, Berlin, Barcelona and New York. They work in agile sprints and are Google Agency certified. Their impressive client list includes companies such as Sony and SoundCloud.
Lean Apps’s unique selling point is speed. They launch ideas in six weeks. Lean Apps does so by focusing on the name giving leanness. For example in using Lean UX. If you have a short time window, you might want to consider Lean Apps.
Luvago focuses on software and IT projects. Luvago points out their agile development process – which means that they develop products in many small sprints rather than one big project.
Their clientele lists names such as SAP and Red Bull.
Karlmax Berlin is an agency that specialises in all products related to mobile phones. That includes Android, iOS and mobile web apps. Karlmax Berlin is a Google Android Certified Agency. Their clients include the big French-German television network Arte and the government of Berlin.
Miquido is a product development agency that does both mobile and web development. They focus especially on research and UX/UI Design. Their client portfolio includes names such as Nestle, TUI and Skyscanner.
UX Studio is not an app development agency and is not based in Berlin. So why mention it?
First, at UXCam we believe that in order for an app to succeed, UX (User Experience) needs to be of equal priority as functionality. The UX Studio specializes in exactly that.
Secondly, the employees of UX Studio travel to their clients all the time, which makes the location gap less of an issue.
You can take a look at their detailed work process to find out if the UX Studio is the right fit for you:
