We are not just another app development company. We are an idea provider, a product designer and a technology platform that crafts, builds and markets digital solutions that make the world talk. With our team's impeccable vision of how design and development of apps should be, we are creating revolutionary digital solutions that are redefining the way people use them today.

Being a band of self-driven and talented people, we love tinkering, building stuff and we know how to do it right. It's not just about creating new apps, but it's also about shaping the way people use and experience them. We bring our expertise in technology and design to create better solutions for your needs, wherever you are and that is how our slogan came about. 

Why “Research, Collaborate and Build”?

As technology and the pace of innovation continues to move at breakneck speed, we wanted to find a way to be able to create meaningful digital interactions that would stand the test of time. This is why we decided to take a step back and look at the way we were working as a team, instead of just focusing on what was right in front of us. This led us on an incredible journey that ultimately helped us create our best work and that is how our logo came about. 

“Research is seeing what everybody else has seen and thinking what nobody else has thought.”- Albert Szent-Györgyi

Our team is composed of talented and creative individuals who are fueled by their passion for excellence. They love to create experimental apps that break barriers and push the limits of technology and research is a huge part of it. At GeekyAnts, every member is inspired to come up with innovative solutions that will change our future and we focus on pushing barriers to research and come up with the most effective way to execute it. We’re not only passionate about tech; we love art and design too and over the years we have diversified into a design studio!

“Collaboration is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” - Andrew Carnegie

Flexible enough to adapt and change with each new challenge we face, we like to think of ourselves as future-oriented innovators who are creating wonders in the tech space. Collaboration is key, so we work together as a mighty family in order to create digital solutions that are unique and impressive.

“If you look at history, innovation doesn’t come just from giving people incentives; it comes from creating environments where their ideas can connect.”- Steven Johnson

With a history of building futuristic apps, we are innovators in our space. Our aim is to create solutions that are creative, fast and cost-effective. We work with clients who see the value of working with a partner who can make their ideas come to life faster than any other company out there.

How We Gave Back To The Community Through “Research Collaborate and Build”

We've been on a quest to find the best practices in all we do; be it researching and learning new skills, a design concept or even just building a better team. Our thirst for knowledge has led us to discover some useful things, which have made us successful in different areas of our lives. We are constantly striving to improve ourselves, so we can share it with our clients, fellow developers and like-minded folks from the community and this has led us to create our brainchild- NativeBase.

NativeBase is a React component kit that allows you to build high-quality and responsive native apps in no time. It’s based on React Native, the most popular framework for building mobile apps (which is itself based on React). This means your code is written in JavaScript; but it also has access to all of the native APIs available on each platform.

NativeBase has been around for a few years, with many versions released to help improve our users' experience on multiple platforms and the third one received successfully by the community last year. Through its success we have found the need to create more solutions that could help web developers build better mobile apps that look and feel native. This led us to create SyncState (for complex state management), Formst (for data structuring) and React Pluggable (for extending react components). All these projects were inspired by the needs of our users and the community, hence we also maintain them under an open-source license so they can be extended as well.

Going Forward…

Our team is made up of people who love everything new and innovative and this falls in line with our slogan. We believe in creating solutions that help our customers quickly put their ideas into action without compromising on quality or design. Through constant research, collaboration and building, we have been able to create pleasant experiences for our customers, allowing us to become an award-winning app development company and we hope to continue to do the same going ahead.
