Interview with STUART KIDD founder of APPS PEOPLE

"It's a pleasure to have Apps People as part of the Studio StartUp community, not only are they extremely talented but really nice people too" | Naomi Rossdeutscher



What is your business?
Apps People specialise in the design and development of mobile and web apps. We create stunning apps for startup and enterprise solutions.


How did you come up with your business idea, inspiration?
Back in 2010 there weren't any mobile app development studios in Perth concentrating on solely mobile apps and I could see that the market had huge potential. I jumped on board the mobile juggernaut and there's been no looking back.

What problem are you solving?
We offer high end, in-house developed mobile and web apps for any and all devices! Integrating the newest tech advancements and trends to produce apps like no other; we strive to offer our clients the most creative, technical, engaging and reliable solutions to ensure the successful launch of every mobile app we build, no matter its nature, purpose or complexity.

Where do you see the business in 5 years?
Our long-term goal is to have offices in each and every city around Australia allowing us to work closely to our clients no matter where they are located. We would also like offices in key European cities.

What stage are you at now?
Right now we have an amazing team of technical and creative members, we have a stella portfolio that most agencies would die to have been a part and we have bucket loads of opportunities in our field.

What is your working day like?
Being very creative we split our days between coding and meeting clients.  Meeting clients regularly allows us to keep up to date with what is happening on the streets in terms of mobile app direction.  It also allows us to break up our days through fantastic ideation.

What did you like about working at Studio StartUp?
Studio Startup truly is a creative hub, we love working in such a creative and groovy office space!




How did you find your team? Who are they?
We are a collective of creatives, entrepreneurs and out of the box thinkers. Our designers, developers and project managers are plucked from around the globe and are the best in their field. The team leads consists of myself (CEO), Alexander Karan (CTO), Olivier Voyer (CIO). Our developers, designers and communications team is based in Australia and are full of imagination, experience and know-how.

If you could change one in the world, what would it be?
I would change the way the working week is set out, working every other week only 4 days instead of the usual 5.  That is the goal. People are proven to be more productive over a set number of hours and days.

What do you love doing when you’re not working?
I love playing with my two kids, they are like little surprises gift wrapped, each day they are changing and every moment is special. Even changing their nappies.
