The 15 Top App Developers in Los Angeles

While it doesn't have the global status of San Francisco as a tech hub, LA has emerged over the past decade as a magnet for startups and investment.

As the home of Snapchat, Tinder, SpaceX, and many other successful tech companies, LA is certainly not short of engineering talent. Alongside these - a thriving ecosystem of software and app development agencies has grown to support the local industry.

There are dozens of app development agencies in LA, so it can be hard to choose the right one for your project. It's an absolutely crucial choice though, which can make or break the success of your business.

To help you choose, we've made this roundup of 15 top app developers in Los Angeles.

We chose these by researching the options on directories like Clutch, and evaluating them on criteria like:

  • Mobile app development focus
  • Portfolios & past projects
  • Reputation and client reviews

We used our own expertise and experience in app development projects to make these recommendations, and we feel confident that each LA agency listed is capable, competent and professional.

At the end we will introduce our own platform, MobiLoud. MobiLoud is better than any LA app development agency if you already have a website or web app.

Read on to find out why, let's get started on the roundup.

"The apps have an attractive interface, thanks to their ability to execute our vision, language, and feel.'' By CEO, Ovvy

So there you have it, the 15 best app developers in Los Angeles. It's a pretty impressive selection with a lot of technical talent and experience. However, there are other options you should consider before going with one of these agencies.

The key question - do you even need them?

As we're about to explain, probably not.

Do you really need a Los Angeles app development agency?

As we've seen, there are plenty of app developers in LA.

They'll be happy to chat about your project and are all capable of building what you want - providing you have the budget and are open to a few compromises.

These app developers have their downsides though. For a start, as you can see, they aren't cheap.

The average comes in at $100 per hour, so even to build a fairly simple set of apps you're looking at $50k+. For many, their average project size is $150k+......

They also tend to be busy with work, and even if they can start working on your apps right away - it'll most likely be 3-6 months to get a first version shipped (minimum). Throughout the process you'll need to work closely with them, checking in on work and communicating with the team.

This is all worth it, of course, to get great apps. But is it necessary?

No - not if you already have a website, online store, or web app.

MobiLoud: More Affordable (and Effective) than any App Developer

If you already have a working app for the web, you don't need a Los Angeles app development agency to build you iOS and Android apps from scratch. You can save tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars - and months of waiting - by using MobiLoud.

MobiLoud converts your existing website, online store, or web app into native mobile apps in just weeks, for a fraction of the cost of an agency.

There's no long wait times, no six-figure invoices, and no need to compromise on your apps' features and functionalities. MobiLoud apps:

  • Allow you to reuse everything from your website or web app (all features, plugins, integrations)
  • Blend the best of the web with the best of native app technology
  • Require minimum time and zero technical skill to manage

Compared to a LA app development agency, using MobiLoud can easily save you 90% of the cost and months of effort.

We can build you any kind of app, so long as you have an existing website or web app to provide the content. We've built thousands of apps over the years, for:

And pretty much any other vertical you can think of!
