This book is a treasure for anyone who feels alone and overwhelmed by the demands of running a company.
Last week, we had a workshop with our newly formed team (we’ve recently divided the company in smaller squads as an experiment to improve efficiency) and just a day before we were all due to meet, our manager asked us if we had already done the Start With Why Exercise…
As a digital agency, we charge our clients by the hour or by the day. So we tracked all our tasks and every minute of our working day - until today.
You have a great app idea, the necessary funding and a solid business plan. Congratulations! Now you just need to find the right agency to build your app.
We compare the mobile backend services that Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) provide in their respective cloud environments.
The development of an app costs 40,000 to 200,000 Euro in the first year, depending on its volume. And, according to our industry, only one in ten apps is actually successful. How can you ensure that you invest your development budget in the right idea and increase your chances of success? Simple! Just test your app idea and business plan KPIs as quickly as possible with a Minimum Viable Product MVP.
In our blog article, we will show you what minimum viable products can look like for two apps with different business models, how to measure your MVP’s success and which mistakes you can easily avoid.
A key element of success at stanwood is setting ourselves high goals each year. At the end of the year, we do a resume to see what we achieved and especially where we failed. We do this on a company level, team level, and also on a personal level.
For the longest time of my life, I set myself SMART goals.

I think it’s safe to assume that the vast majority of apps has some kind of connectivity. Whether it’s content, tracking or remote config, most apps exchange some bits and bytes with the outer world. Once your app receives its desired data, it needs to serialize it somehow. Most REST APIs I know use Json. It’s lightweight, simple, elegant and easier to parse than XML. In cases where content is loaded exclusively remotely, parsing can become your optimization bottleneck. At stanwood, one of our white label apps is just like that. You swap the endpoints, change some colors and you’ve got yourself a custom news app.
