We originally got our name on the map with a Kickstarter project that allowed us to create our first iOS app ''LAST ALERT''. This project also helped spur the formation of the App-Different development studio.
The founder and primary creative force at App-Different, is lead Project Manager Dan Shapley.
Dan's education and first career was in Graphic Design, but for the last fifteen years, he's found himself entrenched in the IT world. App development marries Dan's creative and technology passions together.
What's so ''different'' about App-Different?
There are a couple reasons for the selection of this name:
1.) The obvious reference to Apple's ''Think Different'' ad campaign. We intend to live up to the motto. We strive to develop unique apps, or at least to take a different approach that results in a better user experience.
2.) A different kind of business plan. To be honest, this studio began on a shoe-string budget, and we simply couldn't afford to hire a lot of full time staff. Instead, we contracted out most of the deveolpment work in order to save on costs. We soon realized this approach worked very well for us. We learned that instead of being saddled with full time programmers that were strong in one area but maybe not another, we could hire the right talent for the right job, every time.
It's a different methodology.
A different way to create apps.
