Description

Boluga is an independent app development studio based in Hampshire, England. Primarily focusing on projects for Apple's iOS platform, Boluga have created successful apps across a broad range of categories, including Books, Business and Games.

History

Past

Boluga's founder, Rob Cunningham-Brown, began his career in web development, including several years with lastminute.com in the boom and bust of the late 90's and early 00's. He then went on to spend 10 years outside of the tech industry, running the family business: a large group of food manufacturing companies supplying Europe's leading supermarkets. However, technology was always his passion, and with the launch of the iPhone Rob saw the opportunity to once again take part in a highly disruptive and dynamic industry. Soon after the iPad was launched, development of the company's first app, an interactive book adapted from the original story of The Wizard of Oz, began and Boluga was formed. The book received many glowing reviews and at one point reached number 1 in the US Books category.

Present

A successful mix of home-grown projects and client work followed, including jobs for the City of London, one of the world's richest men, and several joint-ventures. One such joint-venture is a unique app for the iPad called 'Shine'. Shine enables you to create stunning graphical CVs (Resumes) that will help you to stand out from the crowd when trying to land your dream job. The app has been featured by Apple in the UK and US, as well as receiving outstanding critical reviews. Such success has meant that the team at Boluga has been able to grow and is now proud to include Josh and Chris as full time developers.

Future

Boluga are now in the fortunate position of being able to focus fully on their own creations, and recently released the official Flash Gordon game to the App Store.
