Got an App Idea but Not Sure Where to Get Started? We’re Here to Help!


Great app ideas are everywhere.

It could be a moment of inspiration or a concept long in the making, but there’s no shortage of novel approaches to features and functions that could help your app stand out.

Ideas, however, aren’t enough on their own. You need a way to turn great concepts into apps that capture user attention and keep them coming back for more. Ready to get started? As an end-to-end mobile app development company in Chicago, we have you covered.

The Mission? To Build Better Apps

We don’t just build apps — we build better apps to help your software stand out from the crowd. Here, experience and expertise come together to give our teams the edge in every part of the app development process, from initial design to development, testing and support.

A three-step approach helps us build apps better:

First, our experts pinpoint where you are in the app development cycle. Are you working from a brand-new idea, or do you have an app in development that needs help? By analyzing your current state and defining clear end goals, we ensure alignment at every step of the design process.

Once we’re on the same page, design and coding begin. We’ll work with your team to create an app design that aligns with business goals and exceeds your expectations. Then, we’ll bring in our heavy hitters to get the coding done. This is often the most time-consuming part of the development process and where our technical expertise comes to bear.

With your app ready to go, we deliver the complete package. But it doesn’t stop there! From ongoing technical support to help with distribution and monetization, we’re a mobile app developer in Chicago that understands the entire application ecosystem — and we can help you make the most of it.

We Love Our Clients!

The Secret? People With Passion

While technical expertise sets the tone for effective application development, it can only take you so far.

We’ve unlocked the secret code to better app building: People with a passion for making things better. Our teams are here to help with whatever you need, from solving common challenges to tackling in-depth issues.

There’s no job too big — or too small — for our teams. We’ve helped Fortune 500 enterprises create and customize apps, and we’ve worked with entrepreneurs and startups to build the best-fit applications for their businesses.

In other words, we’re not just an app developer in Chicago — we want to be your Chicago app developer.

Sustained Support

Our job isn’t done when your application goes live. Dogtown Media support teams are just a call or email away if you encounter an application issue or if you’re looking to implement new features. No matter what you need, we can help.

Cost Control

Making apps costs money. How much you’ll pay in total, however, depends on your approach.

One option is to build your application in-house. The challenge? If great concepts don’t translate well into full-featured apps, you may have to go back to the drawing board and spend more money to start over.

You could also opt for a low-cost development service that promises speed and savings. However, this comes with risk: If developers can’t live up to their promises, you may need to suffer monetary losses and simply move on.
