Intrepid: This top notch team is based out of both Boston and New York. Founded just 18 months after the launch of the app store, Intrepid has been focused on mobile app design and development from Day 1. They’ve been around for 6 years and now have more than 120 employees and have also finished about a hundred projects. They finish challenging projects for startups and enterprises through their expertise in iOS, Android, Back-End and Rails. Here are some excerpts from our interview with Mark Kasdorf the founder of Intrepid.

Raizlabs: One of only 13 Google-certified top app development companies. They specialize in mobile and web design and development with added focus on business strategy in order to create truly successful products for their clients. Their clientele is a long list of very enviable names like HP, Intel and even Mr. Branson’s Virgin group. Virgin Pulse hired Raizlabs as the development partner for its GoZone 3 BTLE device, a pedometer with wireless syncing capability. Greg Raiz the founder of Raizlabs, gave us an interview where he discusses the current state of the tech industry, among others.

Boston Technology: This team stands out as an enterprise mobility specialist who are also very efficient at building robust web apps.  Having been around for over a decade, they have worked with over 150 clients on 300+ engagements. One of the many accomplishments by this team which deserves mention is having made it to Inc. 5000 list three times in a row. Certainly among the top Boston app developers. Shyam Deval the president of Boston Technology shares his view on the growth of AI and BOTS.

Rocketfarm Studios: They are a one-stop dev shop who will help bring an app business to life by building the digital product, helping you launch and make the most by harvesting data around your product. They have built some phenomenal products like ‘Sheet Music Direct’ – the first ever ecommerce marketplace for sheet music launched in 1997. We spoke to Dan Katcher, the founder, on what makes them tick.

Cantina: They bring a huge amount of experience to the table. This covers digital design and development for mobile and web apps and even products in the Internet of Things space. Recently, they designed Empower – the first retirement app for the Apple Watch to empower users to monitor their retirement savings. Here, we’re speaking to Clark Van Der Beken who heads marketing at Cantina. In an interview with us, he speaks his mind about Cantina, apps, IoT & the future!

Optaros: They are ecommerce specialists who bring the expertise of top design firms and system integrators. Their cross-platform app development capabilities are proved by the work they did with Stella & Dot – they created a rich boutique experience for consumers, an innovative “Stylist Lounge” for their independent stylists, and opened new international markets.

Webinerds: One of the few vendors out there who boldly allow custom payment options for their customers! Their skill sets cover custom app cross-platform app development, e-commerce, and even big data applications.

ADK Group: As they put it, they ‘Code hard and Play hard’. They are a joyous bunch of entrepreneurs and programmers who love to innovate and spread knowledge, apart from building kickass apps for their clients. Now they are a team of 30 people who have worked with big names like Harvard University, WWF.

Zco Corporation: They do mobile and enterprise software development and even animation! They have worked with quite a few industry heavyweights like Verizon, Microsoft, BBC America, Samsung, and Motorola.
