Our Clients

We love diversity and challenges in our works. We don't stick with one style or one type of work. We are thankful to our clients for choosing Shanghai Appmaker and letting us bring them the best digital solutions possible.













  • Zoe Clark / Marketing Director, Sherpa's Food Delivery Service

    Are and his team have been, and continue to be, fantastic consultants for all things technical. He has the ability to explain technical things in real layman’s terms to the most technically backwards people. They follow deadlines to the minute and give honest and direct feedback about everything. Thank you, Shanghai AppMaker!

  • Leopold Guarin / Tournament Organizer , Shanghai Rolex Masters

    In order to give the players of Shanghai Rolex Masters Tennis Tournament an even better experience, we hired Shanghai Appmaker to make an app that could be used for players and personnel as an information center. One of our main requirements was that the app had to work perfectly for the week of the tournament, because we would not have any time for app updates or bug fixes. The app worked perfectly across all platforms, and both players and tournament organizers were more than happy with the product and results. We strongly recommend Shanghai Appmaker to anyone.

  • Jordan Morley / CEO, iJudgefights

    Are Kvaal is a great technical lead and runs a tight scrum. He always gives a detailed weekly breakdown after each sprint meeting. We have been very happy with him and his team and have recommended him to a few others we know. We have worked with other groups in Shanghai but Shanghai Appmaker has done the best work and we will continue to work with them ongoing with our app projects.

  • Christian Thomassen / CEO, Panda Display

    We wanted a software company that could make a good looking and easy to use e-commerce website and mobile website for our business. It was also out of outmost importance that it would be stable, since it is our only sales-channel for our products, and any downtime would mean lost money. Shanghai Appmaker delivered a solution we are proud of, and more than happy with, and so far still have 0% downtime! Great solutions and high quality.

Our Services

We are not just a developer company. For each project, we take in consideration three different perspectives: Technical, Business and User.


We love making games, who doesn’t? We can help you from your idea, flesh out a concept, do the storyboard, character and UI design and gameplay, as well as how to achieve user retention.

We have a special interest in Educational Games, since we believe learning can be made much more fun, than the way it currently is in the schools around the world. So, if you want to make the world a better place, let us know, we will help.


iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Mobile Apps, you name it, we make it.

Web apps-  with a native wrapper they can work on all platforms. They are highly changeable and faster to make than native apps. We fell in love with them, and we are sure we can make you fall in love with them too!

Native apps- when your game or application needs to utilize the maximum power of the device, we can create them with no hesitation.


More than ever, websites now play a big role in the success of a business. We are surrounded with tons of different technology devices, and it is no longer acceptable that a website only works on computers, it needs to be responsive, mobile yet smooth and beautiful.

So what are you waiting for? Change your old website, make it mobile, make it pretty or just create your first and awesome one!
