Connected Apps
Connected apps are mobile apps that connect to vehicles, aircraft, wearables, household items, consumer electronics and hardware by means of Bluetooth, WiFi, 5G, IoT and industrial IoT. We build highly scalable and secure backend cloud infrastructures.
mCommerce Apps
Our ‘business first’ mindset drives our design of B2C and B2B mCommerce apps, which we deliver with a local and global reach in terms of languages, pricing and so on. We provide SDKs and the integration of apps, via REST API, with the existing front store, in other words, Magento, and the backend, with solutions such as PIM, WMS or ERP.
Social Apps
We deliver the entire package, from user research, via data-driven design, to on-time delivery and app store optimisation. A delightful UI and frictionless UX? Of course. Performance, security and scalability? That too.
Our mobile app success stories
We have developed native iOS and Android apps, as well as cross-platform apps harnessing the power of Flutter.
Technology aside, the most important thing is our business-first approach. Each app uses a set of unique KPIs. We watch them carefully with our clients, monitoring the app and improving it. Our design and development come with complimentary app store optimisation services, making it easy for end users to find the app in the Apple App Store, and on Google Play and Huawei AppGallery.
Brewers Eye
Android & iOS App
Brewers Eye provides an unbiased platform for craft breweries to showcase how awesome they are and enables app users to track down more great beers than ever before.

MakoLab built an informative community app with a state-of-the-art UX which also reinforces the Brewers Eye brand experience. It features a set of functions that make it an easily navigable tool for all beer-lovers, whether they are in search of a favourite or want to try out something new.

The set of functions and options enhances the app’s social aspects and the formation of a community of beer lovers from all over the world.
MakoLab has given me a high-quality team which is forward thinking and happy to change when problems or opportunities arise, I cannot think of a better company to be working on the launch of Brewers Eye with.

User-inspired design for mobile apps, backed by reliable delivery
With more than 60% of website visits now coming from mobile devices, mobile app development is definitely right on trend. We started as an interactive agency in 1990 and have been continuously enhancing our creative, e-marketing and development skills ever since.

Today, as a digital projects house with nearly three hundred people on board, we draw on our experience for mobile app development in collaboration with automotive and aero industry manufacturers, including OEMs such as Renault.

While rolling out apps for global markets, we have developed a focus on highly scalable, reliable, enterprise-ready mobile applications.
Our use of best practices for user-centric design, including quantitative and qualitative user research methods, comes together with the talent of our visual designers to form a unique blend of captivating and exceedingly functional design.

Nevertheless, we have learned that even the best UI will fail without a backend that performs superbly. Our delivery services, therefore, focus on connecting all the dots, the design, the development and the agile practices for handling projects and communications.

How can user-inspired solutions really be brought to life? By on-time delivery, which is what makes it our focus here.
