Who are the best ap­pli­ca­tion (app) de­vel­op­ers in Brisbane, Australia (reviews/ratings)


Each year at WorkingMouse, we meet with well over a hun­dred peo­ple in the South East Queensland area with re­spect to web and mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment.

As we con­sider our­selves ad­vi­sors in this space and try to com­mu­ni­cate nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion through our blog, we are of­ten asked “who are some of the other best app de­vel­op­ment com­pa­nies and com­peti­tors in the area?”

Never one to shy away from be­ing bla­tantly hon­est about the com­pe­ti­tion, here is a list of some of the com­pa­nies that have a solid app de­vel­op­ment his­tory in the Brisbane area.

Code Heroes


Review: Code Heroes are a mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment com­pany that build be­spoke en­ter­prise Apps. They do this us­ing the na­tive ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment tech­nol­ogy stack pro­vided by Apple and Google. This means that they de­liver high-qual­ity apps on in­de­pen­dent code bases. Their team is lo­cal and they have pre­vi­ously built the QUT App. Recently they were awarded the Transport and Main Roads (TMR’s) Digital License pro­ject.

Rating: Best for na­tive mo­bile app de­vel­op­ment.

The App Team


Review: Originally from the Sunshine Coast, they now have lo­ca­tions in Brisbane and Sydney. Agnostic be­tween na­tive and hy­brid de­vel­op­ment, the App Team’s strength is their process. In par­tic­u­lar their Rapid Requirements 2-day work­shop gives a fixed fee quote as an out­come.

Rating: Focus is app over web de­vel­op­ment, best for a low cost pro­to­type to test as­sump­tions.



Review: Speedwell is one of the longest stand­ing web and app de­vel­op­ment firms in Brisbane. They are ex­pe­ri­enced and have taken on an ar­ray of pro­jects from Dominos to the fed­eral gov­ern­ment. They’re ag­nos­tic in re­gard to tech­nol­ogy stack and of­fer be­spoke busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions, mar­ket­ing ap­pli­ca­tions, in­te­gra­tion and pro­ject re­cov­ery. Their ag­nos­tic view and pro­ject re­cov­ery of­fer­ings place them well to sup­port trou­bled pro­jects.

Rating: Best for pro­ject re­cov­ery.



Review: Greenhat are full ser­vice in terms of de­vel­op­ment and de­sign. They can pro­vide brand­ing de­sign right through to host­ing but are well ex­pe­ri­enced in ecom­merce. They use de­sign sprints which are in­spired by Google’s process. If you’re look­ing for full ser­vice for mar­ket­ing and ecom­merce then con­sider Greenhat.

Rating: Best for Ecommerce.

Klyp Digital


Review: A full ser­vice dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing and de­vel­op­ment agency. If you’re com­bin­ing mar­ket­ing and app de­vel­op­ment then Klyp may be best placed to as­sist. They are a hub­spot Gold Partner and pro­vide e-learn­ing plat­form ser­vices.

Rating: Best for full-ser­vice mar­ket­ing and de­vel­op­ment.



Review: A full-ser­vice agency that take a ven­ture de­sign ap­proach to prod­uct de­sign. They of­fer both a ven­ture part­ner­ship ap­proach on oc­ca­sion and reg­u­lar fee-for-ser­vice en­gage­ments. They have also have cre­ated their own ‘Algorithmic Venture Validation Assistant’ to give an early stage of de­mand for a ven­ture.

Rating: Best for start-up/​new ven­tures.

Patient Zero


Review: A strong de­vel­op­ment fo­cus and of­fer­ing of man­aged ser­vices. They work well in­te­grat­ing within a pre-ex­ist­ing soft­ware com­pany to add more de­vel­op­ment ca­pa­bil­ity.

Rating: Best if you al­ready have a soft­ware busi­ness.

In sum­mary, Brisbane has a very di­verse range of web and mo­bile app de­vel­op­ers. Everyone has a dif­fer­ent range of spe­cial­ties and ex­pe­ri­ences. We un­der­stand that it can be nec­es­sary to con­sider com­peti­tors to en­sure that you’re mak­ing the right de­ci­sion. We would em­pha­sise that this should be done with an open mind and a con­sid­er­a­tion on who is best to help de­liver the prod­uct.
