I’m Jackson, an App Consultant who helps you realise, develop and launch an idea.

Whether you’re a business or an individual, I help you validate your app idea, and guide you to a successful app product.

You might have an incredible app idea that you’re really excited about, but you may be wondering where to start.

Your app could be anything from creating better efficiency within your organisation to remove paperwork or a revolutionary idea that could evolve your sector. No matter what your idea is, I’m here to help you get started.

Burning questions

How much does an app cost?

It will come as a little surprise that all software development costs are based on specification. “Ballpark” is a common term used to try to estimate the cost of an app, especially for a startup trying to ascertain it’s initial costs.

Take a look at my example apps to get an idea of typical consultancy costs, design and development expenditure.

How long does it take?

Developing an app from concept to launch depends on many factors, such as how far along the business behind the app is, how advanced the idea is, and how much resource is available to the project.

Take a look at my example apps to get an idea of typical timelines for developing iOS and Android apps that are both standalone and API powered.

Why hire me?

I love technology, especially when it comes to apps. 

I have over thirteen years worth of app and platform project experience. From the early days when I built and developed apps in-house, working in an agency to create apps, and now supporting my clients in making their app ideas fly. 

The reason I love apps, and I’m seriously enthusiastic about app development, is because I like to recover time. I’m precious about time, and I dislike things that waste time. Apps help us to be more productive. The accessibility of our mobile devices means they have vast, untapped potential – they are helping us to be more efficient in life and business. 

When I hear a new app idea, I get excited. The challenge that awaits is something that motivates me, and I bring all my energy and knowledge to see that app enter the real world.

The process

When you choose me as your app consultant, here’s what you can expect. Let me talk you through the process:


Where do I start?

I start by validating your idea. No matter where you’re in the idea process, together we’ll identify what’s possible and bring more ideas to the table.

It's all got to start somewhere.


Does Riselabs build the app?

Ultimately, what you're hiring me for is not to build your product outright, but to help you find out how to develop your product, what you need, who you need, the technical expectations, limitations etc. I support and guide you through the process.


Why do I need an app consultant?

Each app has different requirements and needs. Therefore, I help you identify which technology and approach your idea will need in order to become a viable product. There are a lot of options, paths and potential solutions.

Ok, let's get more technical
