Secret Monkey Science is an independent developer of iOS and web applications focused on creating a wide variety of unique, entertaining and educational applications. We provide design, development and consulting services for companies or individuals looking to bring their ideas to iPhones, iPads, other mobile devices and the web.
We have each been developing individually for over a decade, and have been working together under the Secret Monkey Science banner since 2009. In that time we’ve developed 6 apps of our own for the App Store ( see Portfolio ), and have assisted clients and agencies with many more.
We also produce free instructional videos for our website Screencasts.org, covering web technologies and app development.
