Our talented creative team develops custom solutions and products that leverage current mobile/tablet computing and powerful emerging technologies. We are committed to developing innovative application experiences for our clients. BrickSimple developers thrive on challenging technology problems and devising robust scalable solutions.
BrickSimple has been building software products and solutions since 2002. With clients ranging from the Fortune 500 to start-up companies, we are recognized as one of the leading boutique mobile, IoT, VR/AR, and wearable application developers in the United States. While some firms have just begun working with these technologies, our mobile application development portfolio spans more than a decade and we’ve been doing VR/AR development for nearly 5 years.
BrickSimple has been developing on the Android platform for nearly a decade and created some of the earliest applications on Google Play. Apps created by BrickSimple have been featured online by Google, featured on Google Play and even shown at Google’s international I/O event. With a rich portfolio, BrickSimple has developed applications for Android-based phones, tablets, e-readers, set top boxes, Google Glass, Android Wear, and even Tango.
We have extensive experience with iOS as an original early seed for the Apple iPhone SDK. Applications created by BrickSimple have been listed as "Featured" in the App Store and have been included in the Apple "Billion Apps" advertising campaign and store displays. BrickSimple developed apps in the App Store have been downloaded in the tens of millions. We have worked on every iOS platform including iPhones, iPads, Apple TV, and the Apple Watch.
From mobile-optimized web sites/applications to robust web service architectures, BrickSimple has the skills and experience to build the next generation of web applications. While some companies build “web pages”, our expertise is robust consumer and enterprise web applications with architecture designs that scale to millions of concurrent users.
The BrickSimple team has been working with website development and HTML technology since NCSA Mosaic. Our developers were building and deploying AJAX applications a full year before the industry even named the technique. Fifteen years ago, we introduced the first full-stack XML web application platform that cut development time by 70%. That product, Foundation Suite, was sold to a venture-backed company in 2008.
From drones and satellites to virtual reality experiences, BrickSimple is a leader in the development of innovative technology experiences. We have a full stack of in-house talent from visioning of concept to execution. This includes 3D artists, animators, and modelers, game developers with formal education (Digipen, Full Sail), and software developers with deep Windows and Android experience. We’re creating deep and dynamic experiences leveraging the latest in game engine features and our deep understanding of the most sophisticated hardware platforms in the space -- from motion controllers to haptics.Learn more about our development efforts within VR and AR.

The BrickSimple headquarters is located in a penthouse in the heart of historic, downtown Doylestown. Our open office environment supports creativity and communication with a rooftop deck for fresh air, meetings, and conversation. Employees enjoy lunch daily at a variety of quality dining establishments around town. That is, unless it's Friday, where employees are treated to free pizza and a tech talk on the topic of the week. We may be located in a great rustic small town, but BrickSimple is less than an hour from Philadelphia and an hour and a half from New York City. BrickSimple also has offices in San Francisco, Boston, and Myrtle Beach, SC.
At all of our offices, we're stocked with the latest next-gen and emerging technology. We have a full suite of mobile and VR devices to test on and fully loaded Macbook Pros for primary development. As gadget-lovers, it's not uncommon for a drone to be heard buzzing around our offices, a 3D printer printing away, a 3D camera capturing a new experience or a VR headset running our latest work.
Look for us in the award-winning feature length documentary about David Datuna. We worked with David on his Viewpoint of Billions project. You can view the entire film for free here.
