Asking users to adopt new behaviours is very, very hard.

It used to be the case that having a beautiful design was all that was needed for an app to be successful – but as the app stores have grown in size, so has your customers range of options when it comes to your product or service. These days, when faced with similar products from similar companies at similar prices, we as consumers, look for more meaningful products and businesses to work with. The products that provide more meaning, in the most seamless way, are those products that excel.

Relying on beautiful design without substance is long gone. Your app needs to pair beautiful design with a well thought out user experience, giving people not just a new choice but a better, more thoughtful one. This is where working with a premier high-tech mobile app development service makes a difference. Your idea combined with our execution is what makes the difference between a good app and a great one.

Our Previous Work

Great ideas, brilliantly executed.

The apps we build for our clients have had more top 10 hits, organic magazine features, organic press coverage, industry recognition and awards than most of our competitors combined.

Case Study


This concept piece was produced for BAFTA in order to create a more engaging and useful experience for both reviewers of the awards and also for more general consumers to gain an insight into the very best of film and television. The product was a research and development concept.

Case Study

No Catfish

With so many fake profiles online, the dating market was crying out for a safer, more trustworthy app, hence NoCatfish. We built this app along traditional dating lines but with some key technology that verifies people, ensuring that their photos are really them, no bots, no fake profiles.

Case Study


We worked on this product due to our experience in financial trading apps. BuaBook took the same principles of commodity trading and brought it to the sports arena, allowing you to buy and sell ‘stock’ in players and teams. The better they perform, the better your stock performs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between UI and UX Design?

UI (User Interface) design focuses on the visual elements of an app, such as the layout, colours, and typography. UX (User Experience) design, however, aims to optimise the overall experience of the user by making an app easy to use, efficient, and enjoyable. At Glance , we integrate both to create apps that are not only visually appealing but also highly functional.

How does Glance integrate psychology into app design?

We apply psychological principles to understand user behaviour and motivations. This includes using empathy maps to better understand user needs and designing with an awareness of how colour, shape, and layout affect user feelings and actions. This approach helps in crafting more engaging and intuitive user experiences.

What are the key phases in Glance’s app design process?

Our design process includes several key phases:

  • Discovery and Research: Gathering insights about the target users and market.
  • Design and Prototyping: Creating visual designs and interactive prototypes.
  • Testing and Iteration: Conducting user tests to gather feedback and making necessary adjustments.
  • Launch and Evaluation: Deploying the app and continuously monitoring its performance to make improvements.
How long does it typically take to design an app at Glance?

The timeline can vary based on the complexity of the app and client requirements. Typically, the process from initial research to final design delivery can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. We ensure each step is carefully planned and executed to meet deadlines without compromising quality.

Can Glance handle both iOS and Android app design?

Yes, our team is skilled in designing for both iOS and Android platforms, ensuring that the app provides a seamless user experience on any device while adhering to the specific guidelines and standards of each platform.

What makes Glance different from other app design agencies?

Unlike other agencies, we focus on the psychological aspects of user behaviour which allows us to design apps that not only meet users' expectations but also engage them on a deeper level. This approach leads to higher user retention and satisfaction.

How do you ensure the app design is aligned with our business goals?

We start by understanding your business objectives and then align our design strategies to meet those goals. Our collaborative process involves regular check-ins with stakeholders to ensure that the design evolves in line with the business’s evolving needs and goals.

Does Glance offer post-launch design support?
