What Our Clients Have To Say

  • The team at GearedApp have been great to work with and have been enthusiastic and full of ideas from the start of our project.  They have been very helpful, creative and patient in the development of the Capitals App and have provided the structure and advice required throughout.  I can highly recommend the GearedApp team to produce a great product and to work with the client to get the best results.  They have been professional, friendly and have delivered a fantastic App for the Edinburgh Capitals which we will be looking to further develop with GearedApp in the future.

  • GearedApp were there for us when we needed something done in a hurry. They responded to our unreasonable request with a smile and got us what we needed – a shiny and well-designed web badge for our clients – within our deadline and at a very reasonable price. We’ll be using them again.

    Colin Smith e-Placement Scotland
  • We approached GearedApp with our Power a Life web development job towards the end of 2015 and couldn't have hoped for a better digital design agency to work with. They understood our requirements very quickly and were able to begin work immediately once the project was scoped out. We had a tight turnaround in order to have the site up in time for Christmas, which thankfully wasn't an issue for GearedApp as they are so efficient. The end result has far exceeded our expectations and the feedback we have received on the website has been excellent. The support they provided us throughout the process was superb and we felt like we were taken care of from start to finish. The team are very approachable with no question feeling like a stupid question. We strongly recommend GearedApp as a digital design agency and feel the service they offer is excellent value for money. If you are in the market for any web and digital design and development, get these guys hired!

  • We commissioned a website for our business with the guys at Gearedapp. From the moment we approached them with our request, to the moment the website went live, their service and communication was spot on. We had many questions regarding the project and the operational side of the website. The guys at Gearedapp answered ALL of our questions on time. They are a great team willing to go the extra mile. In a couple of occasions they even answered our phone calls outside office hours and got to work on the urgent issues that we contacted them about. When things got a bit technical, they even provided step-by-step video tutorials showing us how to deal with things. The greatest thing is that, even though they are a business, they are willing to direct their clients to find a free of charge solution to their queries when possible. We are very pleased with the service provided and will recommended Gearedapp to anyone looking for a reliable, effective and friendly company to develop a website or app.

  • We were very happy with the final product which was delivered on time and to specification in what was a potentially tricky App to create. The App is sleek and simple and adds to our brand as a whole. In sum, we are very happy with GearedApp and would recommend them in the future without hesitation.
