Top 20 Christmas Apps 2013/14

Stuart Dredge, The Guardian

The ‘Paddington Bear’ app is a beautiful new way for parents and children to read and experience my story together. Paddington awards it 5 marmalade chunks and that’s out of 4! I am delighted with it.

Michael Bond, author of Paddington Bear

This is without a doubt the cutest app of the year by far. This stop-motion animation gives you the full story behind the John Lewis Christmas advert.

CJS Team


Over the last 15 years we have built up a network of the best web, mobile, game and TV application developers in their field across all main programming languages. They come from near and far and come in different shapes and sizes (individuals, small teams and large companies) which enables us to fit the right team for each specific client project no matter what the deadline, budget or location. We project manage the development teams from start to finish to ensure the best and highest results.

A sound agile development process is important and by following these seven stages; Analysis, Design, Implementation, Testing, Documentation, Evaluation, Maintenance, we insure client is constantly kept up to date with weekly sprint reports and working software testing that is enforced by realtime communication progress reports which can also be followed on our project management software which our clients have access to.

We also offer a service where we build the development team to support our clients in-house. This is dependent on the duration of the project but we try to accommodate the constantly evolving needs of our clients.
