Our Story

It all started in 2010. We love HTML5, but we’ve also done our share of native mobile app development: before creating AppGyver, our now founders worked as consultants creating mobile applications for clients. They noticed that almost all of the apps they built shared similar components: bringing in data, setting up users and authentication, building the business logic, crafting the UI – and after that, they had to replicate all these steps on the other platforms that needed to be supported.

They first decided to build an internal toolset that would let them speed up project delivery by making it possible to create native apps with HTML5. AppGyver was born.

After the initial excitement, it became clear that there’s a lot of work to be done. The world needed to experience lightning fast and easy mobile development, be it a seasoned coder looking to push the limits, or a business person wanting to automate critical parts of his processes. This meant creating innovative tools that would help users ship apps faster without compromising quality.

Throughout the years, we’ve learned a lot about what makes mobile app development flow great, and we’ve put all that knowledge into use with our products. Apps that took weeks to create in the early stages of AppGyver can now be done in hours, but that doesn’t mean we’re done. On the contrary, the mobile app building revolution is just beginning.

Our Mission

AppGyver’s mission is to make cross-platform app development quick, pain-free and accessible for anyone, anywhere.
