Pocketglow is a digital agency specializing in mobile app development. We’ve been making apps for a long time.
SpeakEasy, our language education app series, has over two million downloads and has remained one of the top paid travel apps since 2008. Our customers further their language learning with our apps What’s That? and Electric French.
Our children’s education app, Playwords, was one of the top ten paid education apps in over twenty countries. TrayTime, our newest app, helps orthodontic patients manage their daily treatment.
Two million people also have our music app Spotlight Drums. And let’s not forget the app that started it all — Harmonica. One of the App Store’s early hits, Harmonica was promoted by Apple multiple times, including a prestigious placement in their “2008 iTunes Rewind” top-apps-of-the-year list.
In addition to producing our own apps, we work with businesses large and small to bring their ideas to life. We focus on making the app development process as easy for our clients as possible.
