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.

Top Mobile App Developers 2020 In 2016, ArcTouch was acquired by WPP, the world largest network of marketing, design and creative technology services companies.

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

Today, ArcTouch continues to be led by the founders, and an experienced leadership team of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and creative technologists.

Over a decade after launching our first app, we still follow the same principles that have made us successful:

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