Here is what a couple of our clients say!


We engaged Red Rectangle to help us modernize our mobile and server platform. Over the course of 3 months they were able to consolidate 2 mobile projects into a shared project; reducing our long-term costs and time to market. Rob and Nic are extremely responsive, clearly communicate workflow items and provide value added contributions at every step of the development process. We have relied heavily on their advice for all technology decisions; they present and deliver cost-effective solutions. They’re a great technology partner for our business.

- Michael Fithian, Founder, LoanVerify

We brought Nic in to help us build an iOS SDK on an aggressive deadline. He quickly became an extension of our core team -- rapidly understanding what we do, what we needed from a mobile perspective and how to get us there quickly. Nic has an impeccable work ethic, is an excellent communicator and is extremely knowledgeable. He was instrumental in our successful, on-time delivery a large project. We highly recommend Red Rectangle for any business that is looking for established and knowledgeable native mobile developers. We look forward to working with Nic again.
