WHY Pittsburgh


Over the past few years, Pittsburgh has been staking out its position as a new tech hub. Exciting robotics startups like Argo AI and CleanRobotics are planting their roots in the fertile ground of the Pittsburgh area. These companies are impressive. Argo AI, for one, is getting a major investment from Ford of $1 billion over the next five years.

In 2017, Pittsburgh-based online ticketing company ShowClix received an investment from Providence Strategic Growth, an affiliate of the multibillion-dollar firm, Providence Equity. The deal made ShowClix a parent company of the global online ticketing giant Patron Technology. Startups like Complexa, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, and Iagnosis, a comprehensive dermatology platform, are raising millions to break into the healthcare sector Carnegie Mellon'sSchool of Computer Science is a significant contributing factor in Pittsburgh’s recent growth. Together with the University’s Heinz College of Information Systems and Public policy, the school is both producing talented programmers and engineers and attracting knowledgeable experts in the tech field as professors. We at Fueled are committed to helping the mobile app development Pittsburgh, and Pittsburgh startup scene grow. We can help you avoid subtle pitfalls, streamline your track to success, and save you money in the process.



Mobile app development Pittsburgh has the potential to be an ever-larger part of the burgeoning tech scene in Pittsburgh. Language-learning app Duolingo is one of Pittsburgh’s biggest success stories and is valued at around $700 million. The company is planning on increasing its workforce in 2018, with many roles opening up for iOS app developers and Android app developers.

In 2016, Uber began testing self-driving cars in Pittsburgh. After testing at ALMONO, a fake city built on an old steel mill site, Uber expanded these efforts to many neighborhoods in the Pittsburgh area. What’s happening in Pittsburgh is just part of a much bigger picture. In 2017, mobile app revenue reached $60 billion. When Fueled started, iPhone apps were just blooming, the App Store was new and shiny, and Android was just a fraction of the marketplace it is today.

Since then, the profitability of releasing an app has increased exponentially. Today, over 25% of App Store developers earn over $5000 per month. Fueled will help you turn your idea into an app and assist you with post-launch monetization. Android app development is growing more than ever. Android phones reached a peak market share of 88% worldwide in November 2017. When brainstorming your app, remember to consider Android app development in addition to iOS app development.

Fueled’s Digital Transformation Services

Here at Fueled, we’re willing to challenge traditional boundaries by tackling all facets of tech, from newer buzzwords like blockchain and AR/VR to good old fashioned mobile app development.

Our highest priority is to flesh out products that are the result of hard research, robust analytics, and multi-step optimization for your company’s strategy and direction. As a solid team of digital growth consultants, seasoned project managers, and UI/UX experts, we take full advantage of opportunities or openings others might have missed by providing services in:


Creating a successful app requires a massive amount of resources between the architects, strategists, designers, and developers. We are believers in an agile process that allows each party to contribute to the ongoing refinement of the product.

Large companies in finance, healthcare, and robotics have a lot of data to keep track of. When building a mobile app, it can be a huge challenge to get your backend APIs to communicate with each other and result in a seamless frontend experience for the user. Developing a secure, feature-rich healthcare or Fintech app is a challenge in its own right, and creating a user interface that will bring in new customers is where you need the best of the best when it comes to design.

At the end of the day, these companies are full of talent, but might not have enough resourcing to find an internal team capable of developing a native mobile app. This is where Fueled comes in. We will dedicate a team of designers and developers to bring your enterprise to mobile.


Pittsburgh is a vibrant metropolis full of sports fans, franchises, and athletes with new ideas. Founded out of Carnegie Mellon, pro sports software company Yinzcam, has expanded beyond Pittsburgh and become the official in-stadium handheld technology provider for the NFL.

Diamond Kinetics is creating some of the most advanced swing and pitch analysis hardware, and accompanying iOS apps, available at consumer-friendly prices. Their tech is used by Louisville, Vanderbilt, University of Florida and many more major collegiate baseball organizations. Local sports personalities are making waves in tech too. Former Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch founded Impellia, a data collection and analysis software company that powers sports medicine iOS, Android, and web applications.

We are thrilled with our product design and very appreciative of the enthusiasm, support, and hard work demonstrated by the entire team.”

Nirali Jain — Co-Founder and COO of Artwired

iOS App Developers In Pittsburgh

iOS apps are leading the charge on Pittsburgh mobile app development. iOS designers and developers in Atlanta are working hard to create innovative products for a global audience.

For companies that don’t yet have an iOS, Fueled’s team can offer their services.

When the App Store first launched in 2008, it was a gold mine waiting to be explored. It now continues to be a rich economy that promises the most ground-breaking, first-rate apps for Apple users. In 2018, the App Store made $46.6 billion— nearly double the revenue brought in by the Play Store. Compared to Android users, iOS users are reported to have higher annual income and level of engagement. This enables them to make more in-app purchases, as they recognize the value in the apps they choose to download.

Because there are a limited number of Apple device types, iOS app development is also significantly faster. In fact, Android app development is 30-40% slower than iPhone app development— and time is money.

Android App Developers In Pittsburgh

Our Android app developers in Pittsburgh are well-versed in both traditional and newer forms of tech, whether that’s in text recognition, face detection, barcode scanning, or any other MLKit offering. We don’t believe in just taking successful iOS apps, loading them with overhyped features and transferring them to Android. We build them from scratch, ideating and iterating for a user experience that, while being inspired by iOS apps, look and feel at home on the Android.

With over 50 billion downloads and growing, Android apps are proving to be a vital platform for developers and consumers. At Fueled, we use the same methodology for Android app development as we do for iOS development. Our success revolves around turning simple, yet creative, ideas to build apps that are innovative, engaging and intuitive. We focus on branding, user experience (UX), user interface (UI), and functionality from both a frontend and backend programming perspective. This mix of app design, app development, and product strategy is what continues our longevity as a top global app development agency.
