Applications for operation system Android are most often distributed through Google Play Store which probably every user of some Android device knows. Even though Play Store is by far the most common app store with the widest range of applications, it is not the only one.

Development and maintenance of information systems is a big expense. In Ackee, we focus on the whole process of application creation from its specification through the design and development to the testing. That is why we know that the road from the idea to a finished app in the store can be complicated, long and expensive. So how to make sure that your application does not cost too much? (more…)

Tezos smart contracts have matured a lot – and it’s time to use them in iOS apps, closer to the users’ hands. 😉 Throughout this tutorial we will write a smart contract using SmartPy.io and then move to Xcode and get a hands-on experience with interacting with our contract in Swift using generated code from tezosgen. Note that this tutorial will touch on the most important parts of RateMyTeam app and is not a complete step-by-step tutorial. (more…)

Agile methodologies are not universally applicable to all. For which projects and customers is therefore agile suitable and how can it really look like in the real life of agency development? (more…)
There are many agencies out there that offer development for mobile applications, but how do you choose the right one? The development of an app tailored to specific needs is not a commodity with clean parameters that can be acquired as easily as office supplies.
