Our own products

A selection of our home-grown solutions. We love to experiment. It keeps you ahead of things. We experiment to train the team. Often from a business opportunity perspective, and sometimes...just for the fun of it.

Some of these experiments have led to solutions that are now used by our clients, others have led to new business opportunities and yet others have even spun off as entirely new companies.

  • Appmiral

    Appmiral started as one of our first internal projects. A set of frameworks for cross-platform and native mobile event guides. Today Appmiral has evolved into a separate company that develops turnkey mobile event solutions based on the framework that Appstrakt developed.

Team

At Appstrakt, you’ll find a multidisciplinary team of talented and motivated professionals ready to take on any challenge. A very diverse bunch of people bound by common interests. They all share a profound fascination for technology –basically anything that has a screen attached to it– , gaming (not everyone), coffee (though some pussies prefer tea or hot chocolate), having beers and late-night dancing (definitely everyone, some of them slightly weirder than others).
