Downloads For Days
The year 2023 marked a significant milestone for Arch as our app downloads soared to new heights, surpassing 200,000 downloads across various platforms throughout the year. This achievement underscores the trust and satisfaction of our client's user base in the products we develop for them.
Our recognition as one of the first agencies on Flutter's Consultancy Directory stands as a testament to our prowess as Flutter developers. A five-year journey, with two years collaborating closely with Google's Flutter team, has led us to this prestigious position.
Matthew O'Connor, our Director of Growth, Marketing and Account Management, shared his thoughts on this accomplishment, stating,
"Being selected for this list is the culmination of work with Google's Flutter team that has seen our client's work showcased on their site, presented in keynote addresses worldwide, and our pivotal role in shaping Flutter as a product."
In addition to this honour, Arch had the privilege of being featured at Flutter Forward during the keynote presentation. Three of our outstanding apps—SO VEGAN App, SKIN, and Getahead—were showcased, providing a glimpse into the innovative solutions we crafted using Flutter.
