what we do

Common Agency is a specialist digital agency, experienced in the design and engineering of consumer-focused mobile apps. Working for clients throughout the UK – and having launched apps in over 30 countries – our own in-house team of talented iPhone, iPad and Android developers work hard to bring your mobile strategy to life, increase customer satisfaction and maximise your investment.

A carefully considered mobile strategy – which prioritises user experience – can increase customer satisfaction and achieve impressive revenue streams for your company. We may be experts at conceptualising, developing and nurturing mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android. But we are a straight talking, friendly bunch determined to offer a refreshing, common sense approach to this highly specialist strand of the digital landscape.

From understanding which features your users want in a mobile app, through to providing the analytics data to let you know if you were right, we’ll handle the complicated stuff so you can get on with your day job. However complex the architecture underpinning your mobile app, we’ll deliver beautiful, interactive, memorable designs which engage users and achieve maximum ROI. We have experience in adopting other developers code and reviving poor performing apps.

we enabled Mums to capture
magic on their iPhone…

We worked with Cow & Gate to create a handy new way for mothers to keep track of their children’s extraordinary growth. This app allows you to capture photos of your children and customise them with your favourite frames. You can also get in touch with Cow & Gate, as well as speaking to other mums for great tips and advice.

…and architects to design
the future on their iPhone

The Ideal Spec app for iPhone and iPad is the perfect mobile companion to the Ideal Spec website – the UK’s largest collection of bathroom and washroom products, the best resource for the specifier to the installer. Every one of over 3,500 Armitage Shanks and Ideal Standard products is available in the app.

User Experience

Our UX designers live and breathe mobile apps. With fantastic knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, it’s no surprise we can make getting from A to B both seamless and enjoyable.


User Interface

We have a huge passion for everything beautiful in the digital landscape. So, from creating new screen layouts to finessing single icons, we ensure engaging, pixel perfect designs.


Production Design

All of our apps have carefully crafted assets. But they’re not just good –looking. Our in-house production designers make sure every single one feels right at home with the interface and experience.


iOS & Android Design

Specialising in both iOS and Android means we know the operating systems’ design guidelines inside out. Knowing what to use and when, is key to optimising our apps’ usability and memorability.

Problem Analysis

To provide the best solution we have to get to the heart of your problem, or opportunity! Our developers carefully analyse your requirements and engineer the app that will best satisfy your business goals.


Evolving your app

A successful app will continually grow, with the addition of new features, regular iterations and updates. We purposefully engineer flexible apps that are easy and cost effective to change.


iOS & Android Dev

We employ a variety of mobile app development specialists. They write native code for both iOS and Android, ensuring users get the best performance and all the features they expect from their device.


App Testing

Our testers strive for perfection and won’t stop until the job is done! This stage of the process is essential – accuracy and endurance translate into complete peace of mind for our clients.

in-life management & analysis



We know that analytics are vital to a successful app. We provide clients with insightful in-app usage statistics and findings, which we use to drive further app development and lifecycle management. We never stand still!


Business Solutions

Our business is to support your business. So if you want us to integrate with billing gateways, reporting systems or workflow processes, we work hard to fit right in! Your business objectives become the same as our own.


Content Management

With Common, you don’t need to worry about keeping your content up to date. Our agile developers possess all the necessary tools, knowledge and creativity, to keep your app feeling fresh 365 days a year.


App Adoption

If you aren’t happy with the results you’re getting elsewhere, we can ‘take over’ your current app and get it back on track. No matter how old or new the project, we’ll prove just how much mobile matters!

get in touch

say hello

Ok, so professionally we’re ‘mobile experts’ who live and breathe app development. But at Common, there’s more to life than what’s on screen! We’re friendly, approachable and straight talking too – something clients love about us – and are always happy to have a chat over a cup of Yorkshire Tea (especially if there’s cake involved).

So, whether you’ve got a new mobile project to discuss, if you need help with an existing app that hasn’t performed for you, or if you’d just like to learn why apps are so important for business, say hello…
