App Development

Isoperla develop native apps for companies and academic institutions. We have the experience and knowledge to create and deploy elegant and effective mobile solutions.


Automatic Recognition

Isoperla are experts in the applied use of multi-variate statistics. For example we reinvented wildlife field guides for the mobile age with Automatic Recognition. This software identifies bird species from songs picked out of the air using the device microphone, like Shazam for birds. The Times Newspaper called it an 'astonishingly sophisticated piece of software'. We were the first company in the world to offer this on a consumer device.

Technology Experts

We specialise in resource limited devices, typically mobile platforms such as iOS and Android, but also chip boards such as Raspberry Pi. We have a comprehensive understanding of the technologies underpinning these systems. We use a blend of agile and traditional techniques to build robust well architected solutions.

We have our own highly functional application framework which supports seamless server integration, data synchronisation, mapping, geolocation and custom user interface controls.

The Isoperla Framework Library can often be used as the foundation of new apps. Customers can leverage the power of our platform by simply providing images and text in a suitable format. This is very quick and low risk way to create a new app.


Our library supports seamless server integration, synchronisation, mapping, geolocation and custom user interface controls. All this functionality has already been thoroughly tested and used in the field which greatly reduces the risk when producing a new app.



About Us
