To summarize, I really recommend Alty! I think they are the best developers and designers that I have seen by far! The only people that are comparable to them are Stanford grads who are getting jobs for ~$200,000/year in Silicon Valley - and they are VERY expensive!

Business Perspective

Challenges

  • Develop the complete application concept from scratch within one version.
  • Build an easy-to-expand architecture, with a budget goal in mind.
  • Strict time frame based on the marketing plan.
  • The need to sustain high load.

TAlty fully developed the app - CityHour (design, back-end and front-end development). Our product was named as one of the best networking solutions by Apple - that says a lot about the quality! It's superb!
