TheyMakeApps: The Yellow Pages Of App Developers

With TheyMakeApps, a developer can quickly have themselves listed, and anyone in need of their services can easily find them.

With the release of the App Store, iPhone users have downloaded over 3 billion applications. Despite those numbers, there’s still plenty of opportunity to penetrate the mobile app space. The challenge lies in finding a developer to execute against your vision. Welcome TheyMakeApps: the definitive online directory of iPhone application developers, launched by New York based interactive agency kettle. Being bombarded with requests for iPhone applications prompted the idea for the directory, as kettle was unsure which developers would be the best fit. With TheyMakeApps, a developer can quickly have themselves listed, and anyone in need of their services can easily find them.

TheyMakeApps isn’t exclusively for agencies and developers.  SPIN magazine used the directory to find the perfect developer for their latest project. Nick Pandolfi, Digital Edition Manager of SPIN describes his experience:

“They Make Apps was a huge help with SPIN’s latest development project. Rather then reach out to all our contacts for developer references, it was a quick way to find locally based developers and see exactly what they specialize in. I’m sure we’ll be using it again soon!”

TheyMakeApps hopes to assist in leveling the mobile development playing field. It’s in everyone’s interest to spread the love, and facilitate the maturing of other emerging mobile platforms such as Blackberry, Android, and Palm.  We hope this online mobile app directory helps leverage Apple’s success by illustrating how many great apps and app developers exist, enticing brands to explore this enormous untapped market.
