Client QuoteSimpalm was able to reproduce our apps for native Android and iOS, which was a breakthrough in many ways. It made the apps work more efficiently, and it gave us a codebase, which could be picked up by a different developer easily. They did a phenomenal job of translating our existing apps into their respective native versions. Simpalm worked on a fixed-cost basis, which was ideal from our standpoint. We knew that they would finish the job without any cost fluctuations. We are extremely happy with the service and deliverables provided by Simpalm. They deliver wonderful mobile applications on tight timelines for very competitive pricing. Simpalm is highly recommended to others.
