About Apptaura

Yup, we build apps.
Geekishly good mobile apps. If we do say so ourselves.

We want to change the world with great code. That’s our ambition, that’s our drive and what gets us out of bed in the morning. We believe that apps and technology can be a force for good, from helping to save our environment to transforming society and the way we live our lives. We’re the app development agency that cares as much about your business as you do.

We’ve been developing apps in Basingstoke, Hampshire for years. From our beginnings as a bedroom start-up, we have grown organically to be an established business and this appointment is the next part of our puzzle to achieving our goals. We are an eclectic selection of personalities and experience and we are looking for you to add yours to our special mix.
