Our Story

We're Simply Made Apps, founded by a couple of guys who spent our free time drinking beer, playing golf and coding awesome projects. We believe in making products that are drop-dead easy to use. Instead of delivering 300 features, we prefer to deliver 10 features that are obvious and useful. Simple is in our DNA.

Our startup story is a classic example of American endeavor. One of us personally had a problem with the in/out software we used at our day job and joked that "we could write a better app in a weekend". After chewing on this boast for a while, the idea was pitched over beers and Simply Made Apps was born. We locked ourselves away for 48 hours, drank more coffee than we care to remember, watched an entire season of Futurama and built the prototype for what would become Simple In/Out. We now have a successful app used by thousands of organizatons around the globe, enough money to open an office in the heart of downtown Fargo, and pride in our rock-solid customer service. Our business together is where our passion for making elegant products gets to shine.

While we love building great apps for ourselves, we occassionally indulge in web and iOS/Android consulting. Please contact us if you'd like to work together.
