Best Mobile App Development Companies (2019)

Updated: December 3, 2019

What are the top mobile app development companies on the market I should get in touch? You maybe asking yourself this question whether you need to create an app for iOS, Android, Windows Mobile or build a cross-platform one. By any stretch, it’s not a trivial question and to make the right choice you need to see many options on a single list to compare and make an informative decision.

Because of the nature of the app development process, the top Android and iOS app developers can be found scattered across the globe, from California in the USA to Europe and South East Asia. In many cases, these companies split their office between multiple locations. For instance, they may open headquarters with sales and marketing, let’s say in US, and its design and development arm somewhere in India or Eastern Europe. On the other hand, there are strong agencies that are wholly located in India and Latin America too, and the UK always has a good proportion of the top app developers.

This guide rounds up the best app development companies from multiple geographies. To cut your googling that maybe painstaking, we chose for you companies with a proven track record and a diversified portfolio; most of the top app development companies here can code for iOS, Android, Windows Mobile or go cross-platform and build a hybrid app. We looked at the strength of their UX/UI design and their willingness to dabble with new tech like wearables, AR, VR, Blockchain, Amazon Alexa and conversational bots. Finally, we did not discriminate by size, as small studios can compete with larger companies on all quality metrics.

This app development companies guide divides into the following macro-regions:

To introduce with the biggest pool first, we begin with the USA based companies.


USA

The land where the apps era began, the USA has a fantastic range of top mobile application developers, but not all of them are located in Silicon Valley, California. One thing to consider about US app development agencies is that they’re forced to compete in pricing with Eastern Europe and India app development shops and hence to stay competitive they’re forced to innovate in their approach even more than their counterparts in other parts of the world.
