The Post-PC era is upon us. As Microsoft’s newly inducted CEO, Satya Nadella states, “We’re in a Mobile First, Cloud First world.”
With over a million apps on Apple’s App Store and an equal amount on Google Play, an organization must determine whether a Native App solution which takes advantage of smart phone features such as Location, Camera, Email and Push Notifications is a value to their enterprise and customers.
Our team has designed, developed and released well over a dozen native iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android apps and games combined. We’re here to consult to the Enterprise Client to design and develop the mobile technology necessary for their transition into Mobile.
If your target audience is large, we build for the most popular platforms that allow you to reach these customers with a native app or game. When building an internal mobile solution for an Enterprise, we will evaluate and advise which platform best suits the needs of our client.
Featured: Internal Enterprise App for the Resort Municipality of Whistler’s Emergency Operations Center.
The technologies we focus on are Objective-C for exclusive iOS, Java for native Android or Unity 3D for cross platform deployment.

Building on Vectorbloom’s portfolio of mobile projects in Social Media sharing and modern stationery for iOS, we are now innovating a new app product that meets the need for elegant digital communications.
From greeting card apps, to ArtCards and the Mobile Greetings App Starter Kit, we’re re-imagining a new approach on UI/UX design and programming for iOS with Apple’s all new Swift programming language. Papier’s release to Google Play will follow shortly after its debut on iOS.
As of this Fall 2014:
Vectorbloom is a mobile design and development studio based out of Whistler, British Columbia. Since 2009, our team has launched a variety of lifestyle and game apps, while consulting in UI/UX design, iOS programming and Unity game development on a work for hire basis.
For in-house production, we began exclusively with iOS yet over time it became apparent which projects and platforms to focus on. Case in point, as much as we loved many of the apps we released (for example, Sara’s Ladybugs), it isn’t realistic to maintain all of them to the level of quality we strive to achieve. In 2014, we downsized our portfolio to focus single game app on multiple platforms built in Unity 3D. Big Top Ballet video game is available on iOS, Android, Mac and Facebook.
In order to deliver elegant solutions, we’re strong proponents of seeking simplicity in the ever complex paradigm of mobile technologies and platforms. To better serve innovation strategies and future client work., we are currently transitioning into Swift programming for iOS. To achieve this, we are developing a brand new mobile product that builds on the ArtCards iPhone App (launched in 2011) and the Mobile Greetings App Starter Kit ( launched in 2012).
We continue to be astounded by the accelerated rate mobile cloud technologies are evolving and the inevitable impact these have to our world, economy and personal lifestyles.
