iOS & Android Apps

Native iOS & Android Apps

built with Xamarin cross platform technology

Many startups make a big mistake of not launching their Android app until a year later. This is a bad strategy because over 65% of Americans use Android phones.

However, separate native iOS & Android app is costly to build and hard to maintain. At Rebel Idealist, we utilize the Xamarin cross-platform native app builder to make your iOS and Android with a single codebase! In most cases, this leads to a cost reduction of ~35% compared to building both apps the standard way.

Open your store to the world

Today, having an online presence is essential. Sales in North America grew to a world-leading $364.66 billion in 2012, and is expected to grow just as much this year1.

Our open source e-commerce solutions ensure you'll never have to look far for future developer support.

User Experience

User Experience

Solidify your app's first impressions

Your idea could be the next best thing, but it won't matter if no one knows how to use it.

We help by streamlining your app's workflow with user testing and design critiques, increasing user retention and decreasing customer support requests.

Test-Driven Development On Rails

Rails is inherently very integrated, which makes testing difficult. However it's still possible to use TDD without losing all the advantages Rails has to offer.

We use this method at our company for critical applications. We've also developed and extensively use stripe-mock-ruby when working with Stripe payments.
