The cost of building an app is far higher than you may initially think, hiring a team of designers and engineers to produce a bespoke application could cost upwards of £10,000. App Movement aims to flip this on its head by empowering individuals, small communities and organisations with the ability to collaboratively support, design and launch mobile applications tailored to their needs. App Movement hopes to make a real difference to peoples lives and explore the challenges of open design in an online environment.
“App Movement is currently in beta with ongoing development, we hope to see the service launched in full by the end of 2014. We will be running several case studies and analysing user interactions with the site in an attempt to gauge an understanding of user’s interactions and engagement in the process.” – Edward Jenkins
