The Top 10 App Developers in Houston

Houston, though traditionally known for its dominance in the energy sector, has made significant strides in recent years toward a growing tech ecosystem.

With the advantages of local universities, public-private partnerships, and a diverse talent pool, the city is positioning itself as a vibrant hub for innovation in the South - especially in the areas of healthcare, aerospace, and energy tech. As more tech startups and incubators take root, Houston is steadily gaining recognition as a formidable player in the national tech landscape.

This is good news for you if you're trying to find a Houston app development agency. There are plenty, many highly skilled and experienced. Though it isn't always easy to find the right one. If you search "Houston app developer" in a directory like Clutch you'll get a ton of misleading results - from businesses that are really based thousands of miles away to those who don't offer app development at all but are just gaming the system.

We've built thousands of apps at MobiLoud, and have experience collaborating with and hiring app development agencies ourselves. We combed through websites and portfolios of Houston app developers and refined them down to a list of the top 10.

We evaluated them on their experience specifically in mobile app development, and we're sharing the ones we would consider working with ourselves. Check them out!

So there you go, the top mobile app developers in Houston! It's a pretty impressive list, and all 10 are capable of doing a great job with your iOS and Android apps.

There's one more question you need to ask yourself though...... Do you really need to hire an app development agency?

If you already have a website or web app, the answer is no.

That's because MobiLoud can convert your existing website or web app, no matter it's features and tech stack, into top quality iOS and Android apps. We can do it in a fraction of the time, and at a fraction of the cost of the developers we mentioned above.

The 10 app development agencies above will do a good job, sure, but they'll likely charge you $50k+ and take months to get the apps ready to deploy.

Building apps with MobiLoud will cost <10% of that, and we'll have them ready for you to launch in just a matter of weeks. We've built apps for everyone from small local businesses to massive global brands in eCommerce, news publishing, tech startups, and most other industries you can imagine.

Check out some of the apps we've built in the past.

If you want to build just mobile apps, go with one of the agencies above and prepare for a long and expensive project. If you already have a site or app running on the web, converting it to native iOS and Android apps with MobiLoud is a no brainer.

Want to get all your questions answered, and get your business live on the app stores?
