What Our Clients Are Saying

Speed & Costs

Instamobile's codebase proved to be incredible. We built our solution in just a matter of days. This was a project estimated to 15 months by several development teams we discussed with. It's insane how much money and time it saved us!

David Adams


I'm really impressed by how well organized the code is. It's relatively easy to add new components and stuff. I'm a newcomer with React Native and it was easy to understand the code. The integration with Firebase is amazing, the app works really fast.

Alex Chu


Overall, it's remarkable. The code is amazingly clean and well-written -- super elegant. I learned about a lot of performance optimizations that I was not familiar with, such as video compression, memoization, and disk caching. The app is crazy fast!
