BSD Studios - specialist cross platform mobile app developer.
Based in London, we build cross platform apps and highly scalable
customised back end services for a variety of businesses.
We build serious applications for clients ranging from
the world's biggest institutions to small innovative start-ups.

BSD Studios was founded in 2013 with a vision to bring professional cross platform development to mobile device apps.

Don't waste time and money with a digital agency more interested in big-brand eye candy apps! If you want a serious app done properly we are the right choice. With extensive expertise in building large scale back end databases and messaging services we can provide a complete front and back end solution to developing highly scalable, secure, mobile apps for the most mission critical businesses.

BSD Studios specialises in developing cross platform mobile apps (iOS, Android, WP) using Xamarin with C#. We build native apps using each platform’s standard UI controls and API, giving native performance but using a common C# codebase. This approach is more maintainable, cheaper and faster than building two or three separate apps, one for each platform. It is consistent with the majority of existing mainstream software development at most major institutions and allows us to use existing, well tested, specialist libraries, for your industry.

    We have delivered projects to some of the largest financial, government and commercial institutions, so whatever your size we understand:

  • real time data;
  • messaging and geolocation;
  • transaction execution and reconciliation;
  • regulatory issues, compliance and audit;
  • data protection and security;
  • backup and disaster recovery.

Our pedigree includes a number of large projects such as building a large scale reporting and risk management system for the central treasury of a major European bank. We have developed and launched a mobile social event planning app called fuzr with a fully integrated geolocation sharing and messaging technology. We designed, developed and managed the rollout of the client platform used by a major investment manager. We also built and implemented a global electronic interdealer trading system for derivatives and fixed income products. Other projects include the AI engine for an award winning iPad app.

BSD Studios can help with all aspects of mobile app development from initial strategy and planning, wireframes and MVPs, regulatory issues through to architecture, development and deployment. We even train and provide dedicated post launch support engineers for larger projects. We work on a time and materials basis or against an agreed budget and detailed deliverables, or a combination of the two.

    Recent Projects include:

  • fuzr - a cross-platform, location‐aware app for iPhone and Android.
  • A multi‐£m global electronic trading platform built on .NET for CDS and corporate bonds.
  • The mobile and online banking platform currently used by a major investment manager.
  • A featured (US Store) iPad app.
  • A real time aggregation, modelling and distribution system for high‐volume derivative pricing data exposed via a REST API.
  • The content conversion tools and custom multi audio track video player for a 5* rated iPad app.
  • Contributions to a specialised framework for plasma physics simulations.
  • The AI engine for an award winning iPad app.

We are cross platform mobile and cloud server specialists. With our talented UI and UX designers we can deliver a great looking app more quickly and at a lower cost. Call us to discuss how we can help you today!
