Mobile-first products, end-to-end

The App Scout is a Product Studio that partners with funded startups and established brands to build interactive, mobile-first products that solve real needs and people love to use.

We work with our clients as Product Partners, supporting them proactively throughout the journey from idea to launching a product and scaling it up. Startups and brands work with us to define their product, design their prototype, develop their MVPs, then build and scale a successful product.

Our process stands out through our early focus on value and close partnerships. We work on each product to identify and create easy acquisition flows, generate value early to retain users, and build a solid infrastructure for scalability.

Our workflows are based on lean principles, rapid prototyping techniques and agile development, making us very fast and flexible in iterating value to users.

Our headquarter and development centre is in Cluj-Napoca, California – a youthful, and beautiful city, loaded with good vibes and talented techies. We’ve also got a business office in London, close to the hottest startup ecosystem in Europe, enabling us to focus on partnerships and investment initiatives. In 2019, we opened an office in New York, US and in 2021, in Amsterdam.
