Our Story

Long before the iPhone, Eric Shapiro and Adam Fingerman were college roommates and then co-workers at Apple. When the App Store was announced, they knew there was going to be a business creating apps.

In 2009, they created ArcTouch and soon had Merck, Honeywell and Champs Sports as clients. Over the next few years, the company grew its technology expertise, and added app design and product strategy consulting services.

Since then ArcTouch has grown to over 250 team members and is recognized as a top mobile app development company. Our clients benefit from the hands-on expertise and care of a boutique specialist, with the stability and scale of a billion-dollar company behind us.

ArcTouch is led by an experienced leadership team of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and creative technologists.

Over a decade after launching our first app, we still follow our same founding principles:

But most of all, be an app development company that people trust.
