What if you're losing half of your potential users?

Picture this.

You’ve built an awesome product and published it to the App Store. Your hard work has paid off and your app is spreading like wildfire. Someone reads about you in TechCrunch and loves what they hear, but they don’t download your app.

You’ve lost a potential user. Why didn’t they download?

Because you’re not on Android.

Today, fewer than 50% of the world’s smartphone owners are on iOS. For companies that live and die by their growth rate, you are dangerously limiting your access to new users. Even worse, you’ve left an entire market open for your competition, giving them an opportunity to cash in on the interest you’ve generated.

"Sure, we’d love to be on Android, but…"

Do you need to redesign? How do you make sure it looks and works like it’s supposed to across hundreds of different devices? How can you improve your chances of being featured on the Play Store?

The unanswered questions quickly become overwhelming, and you decide to hold off on porting your app for now.

But you’re still missing out on those users.

What if you weren’t losing them?

Let's picture the alternative.

Your app is featured in the Play Store. Downloads are increasing every day and you’re on track to match the new daily user count of your iOS app by the end of the month. You’ve expanded your reach to a whole new platform, effectively doubling your growth rate in just a few months. Even better, you got here on time and under budget.

But how can you get here?

Pembroke takes your iOS app and prepares everything you need to start porting it to Android in just two weeks.

Over the course of the session, we'll work alongside your team to plan out every step of your app's development, culminating in the delivery of a detailed roadmap to your project's success.

Afterwards, we'll handle development all the way from first line of code to first app download—or simply assist you and your team as you build everything yourselves.

Either way, you'll have everything you need to be successful on the Play Store.

"What do these sessions look like?"

Each roadmapping engagement follows the same two-week schedule.

  • Week One - Investigation & Discovery
    • Intensive kickoff session, pouring over every detail of your existing or in-development iOS app.
    • In-depth audit of existing iOS project, including source code, assets, and external services.
    • Identification of any technical limitations or roadblocks you may encounter with the Android platform.
    • Development of single feature to get experience with your code base and API.

    • Week Two - Roadmap Preparation
      • Break down project into user stories and schedule them out, using Trello, Asana, or your project management tool of choice.
      • Android Studio project set up, including database, testing, and anything else needed for you to start development.
      • Android theme creation matching your existing application.
      • Theming and testing of last weeks feature.
      • Handoff session, where we'll go over your customized roadmap in detail and answer any remaining questions you have before we start porting.

    Are you ready to start expanding to Android and reach more than twice as many users as you are now? Book a session with us today.

Still not convinced? Here's what past clients have to say about us:

We really appreciated Pembroke’s attention to detail. When they were porting over our iOS app to Android, we didn't have to point out the subtle pieces of functionality -- they noticed themselves, and that took a lot of work and worry off of our plates.

As a result of working with them, we were able to bring our Android products to market much faster than we possibly could have ourselves, and that meant a lot to us and our users.

Pembroke also understands what it means to work with a startup where every dollar counts, and to stay within a budget. We were really happy with the value we got for the price we paid.
Matt Ivester, Co-founder & CEO at ‎Hotshot Labs
James knows his stuff and can communicate that knowledge efficiently to clients. He has been critical to a very large, ongoing project with Chase Bank…

His know-how and availability to jump on ongoing calls and present at business reviews has been a huge part in this project getting pushed forward.
Jon Arp, Google

Take a look at some of our past work:


Wheels Up

Wheels Up reached out to us after their customers begged for an Android version of their popular iOS app.

After four months of development, they launched an app that satisfied their customer's requests, receiving 5 stars on the Play Store, as well as catching up with the development of their iOS product.

#FIREFIRE

After working with us on an iOS app prior to us forming Pembroke, the founders at A Rad Corp reached out to us help them launch an Android version of their #FIREFIRE emoji tweeting app in parallel with their iOS release.

We worked alongside their team to launch both apps simultaneously, with the launch being featured on Product Hunt. Received over 4 stars on the Play Store.

Hotshot Screen Recorder

Not long after the launch of #FIREFIRE, A Rad Corp came back for our help launching another app idea ASAP. Hotshot made use of the new screen recording APIs in Android 5.0 to share images and videos from the user's screen, including capturing screenshots from Snapchat without detection.

Although only available on the Play Store for a short time, Hotshot received over 500 downloads in just a few weeks.
