London, 3rd February 2016 - Pocket App, the UK’s largest independent app developer, is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted in the ‘Mobile Development House’ category of The Techies 2016.

Celebrating the best of UK technology innovation and digital disruption, The Techies highlight the industry’s most exciting businesses, individuals and startups. Organised and hosted by high-profile IT publication, Techworld, the shortlisted companies will attend a prestigious award ceremony at the five star ME Hotel in central London on the 25th February, where the overall winners of each category will be announced.

Pocket App has been shortlisted for the ‘Mobile Development House’ award, which will be presented to the company that has helped brands to build the best mobile apps and mobile software in the UK today. The company has been recognised as a standout in the saturated app design industry for its unique business model, whereby a large and talented design team has been created from the ground up in India and works in tandem with a high quality control London-based management team, using intelligent outsourcing to divide projects into their component parts and allocate the right parts to the appropriate cost developer.

Pocket App has also impressed the judges with the impressive roster of clients that it has serviced since being established in just 2011, having completed significant mobile development projects for household names such as Argos, Samsung, Coca-Cola, Microsoft and Panasonic.

Paul Swaddle, CEO of Pocket App, who will be attending the awards ceremony, commented, “It’s very exciting to be shortlisted for this award. We have been delighted to receive various award nominations in the past for projects that we have delivered for our clients, but it is very satisfying to be recognised by The Techies for Pocket App’s innovative model and approach to app development. We know that we face some stiff competition to secure the winner’s award, but we are very proud of the cutting-edge mobile and development work that we deliver for our fantastic range of clients, and we think we stand a very good chance of winning.”

This nomination comes amid an exciting period of development and rapid expansion for Pocket App, with the business having established the London Lab, its new base of operations in central London, at the end of 2015. In the past six months Pocket App has also been named a winner in the UK App Design Awards and the UK Digital Experience Awards for apps My Poppy and 999eye. CEO Paul Swaddle was headhunted to appear as a guest judge in the televised final of popular BBC One series, The Apprentice in December.
