Yahoo made mobile a top priority and needed expert iOS and Android engineers to add to their already extensive team’s capabilities. They wanted talented mobile app developers who could move fast and help create award-winning apps.


Working as a single unified team, ArcTouch iOS and Android engineers joined with Yahoo designers and developers to create some of the most impressive apps on any device or platform. With ArcTouch partnership, Yahoo was able to press into mobile app development without staffing delays. They retained the trusted involvement of their in-house teams as supported by the engineering know-how of ArcTouch.


In 2013, the Yahoo Weather app was honored with a prestigious Apple Design Award.
