We make beautiful, capable iOS apps. Through a paired design & development process, we can create and iterate new ideas quickly.

We value apps that genuinely make people’s lives better: education, art, data, and connecting people to resources.

AVIVA – Loop your life

AvivA allows videos and Live Photos to be looped forwards and backwards with additional control. Choose the start point, length, and crop, then save and share your adorable and hilarious loops. We’ve seen a huge need for a quality app that can loop existing videos; while Boomerang does something similar, it has drawbacks in framerate and forces the user to fidget with Boomerang’s timing instead of capturing the moment in a high-quality, full-length video as they normally would. AvivA allows fine-tuned looping in a simple, delightful interface.

Weather Underground


Weather Underground


weather for all

The flagship app for Weather Underground. We did a ground-up redesign and rewrite of the app; within the year, we doubled the user base, were chosen by Apple as an App Store Essential, and earned a #3 ranking in the Weather category. Matt & Aryn worked as the UX designer and lead iOS developer with the Weather Underground mobile team for this project.

WunderStation

SIMPLE ON THE SURFACE

The data goes deep.

The Weather Underground audience is multifaceted, from armchair meteorologists who discovered the site when it first appeared in 1995, to new users who want more accurate local weather. When designing for a dual audience, we talked to lots of real, live users across the spectrum of weather needs. It became clear that we needed an app that could provide weather at a glance for lay users, and allow scientific users to get the detailed information they need. Matt & Aryn worked as the UX designer and lead iOS developer with the Weather Underground mobile team for this project.

Experience the Weather

What will today feel like? Our app will show you.

We were fascinated by the idea of communicating the weather through more than just numbers. In a spare hour and a half, we stole a whiteboard and used up three Expo markers to create a weather app that would show rather than tell. This is a prototype app built for Weather Underground, with full UX/UI/Dev by Matt & Aryn.
