Eighty Six • An indie iOS & Mac App Development Studio • Since 2010


Eighty Six is a bespoke, independent app development studio—based in South Africa. We design and build apps for iOS and OS X. Clean UI and good UX are part and parcel of what we do. We love simple. We do the hard work, so that it's simple(r) for you. We'll advise, build, help you strategize, and bring your ideas to life.

If you need consulting, or have a product idea you'd like to discuss and think we would make a good fit — we are selectively available for development and consultancy services — then give us a shout.


While we do not follow the traditional agency/studio/web-shop blueprint, we do occasionally do client work, and we have worked with some pretty amazing companies in various roles. We've built production level (RESTful) API's for some pretty big companies, others run their businesses from custom-built backend management systems, all with fancy graphs, reporting, automation, and Excel exports, as well as consulted on entire system rebuilds.
