We make life changing apps
We work closely with our clients and the people who use the apps all the way from developing the concept, through to creating the designs, implementing the features and testing it all works. The team includes ideators, creators, designers and developers. We like to solve problems using technology and that means we work hard to create robust and reliable solutions that are simple to use and pass the test of time.
The team here in London listen to our clients around the world, to translate their requirements into a real product. We use data to analyse the best ways to do something. Our word prediction engine, for example, is considered the best in the business - and this matters because people who use it rely on its efficiency to get their message across as quickly as possible.
Recognised by the Queen for our innovation
We are extremely proud of the awards our team and products have won. The team has won awards recognising our innovation in the healthcare arena (TechUK Best mHealth Developer), in education (BETT Awards) and in the mainstream (the Appsters, Ericsson App Awards). Our most prestigious award is the Queen's Award for Enterprise: Innovation.
Our co-founders have been recognised for their role in delivering this impact. In the 2016 New Year's Honours List, Her Majesty The Queen awarded Rebecca Bright the honour of Member of the Order of the British Empire.
Assistive technology is in our DNA
Ground breaking assistive technology communication apps: Predictable, ChatAble and Scene&Heard. State of the art iOS, Android and Windows apps that help people to communicate and be independent.
We have apps available in 11 languages used by people with a range of needs due to motor neurone disease/ALS, stroke, cerebral palsy, autism and other communication difficulties.
In 2011 we launched the first switch accessible app for the iPad - revolutionising how people with physical difficulties could use mainstream technology. In 2014 we were the first to allow people to use their own voices in their AAC apps, by implementing ModelTalker in Predictable and ChatAble.
From the lab to the App Store
Our track record in innovation is further enhanced by our consulting and collaborative work with universities across the world. We offer both technical and commercial services to academics wishing to pursue product development pathways. We have co-designed products with academics from University of Sheffield, Queen Mary University, Reading University, Birkbeck University of London, Harvard University and Indian Institute of Technology in programmes of research and development funded by Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission, National Institute of Health Research, SBRI, MRC Global Challenges Research Fund and EPSRC.
We work on writing bid submissions, technical consultancy, product development, co-design, evaluation and commercialisation. We have expertise to lead work packages and to carry out either collaborative or sub-contracting roles.

The successful companies demonstrated best value and greatest technical feasibility to a panel of experts looking for game-changing technologies with the highest potential value to patients and the health service.
We innovate to improve lives
Our innovation makes a difference. Underpinning our work is the drive to improve lives - from someone living with MND being able to communicate in Norway, through to Bosnian farmers reducing the risk of flood or helping researchers in the field screen for autism in rural India.
We have developed unique technology related to word prediction, eye tracking and speech and language analysis. This R&D helps us to push the boundaries of what everyday mobile technology can do, to make a difference.
