Based in Kansas City, Missouri, RareWire is a software and services company that makes app ideas come to life. With the innovative App Creation Studio and a team of talented designers and developers, RareWire produces powerful native iOS and Android apps. Started in 2010 by Matt Angell and Kirk Hasenzahl, RareWire continues to thrive in the mobile app industry.
The world of app development is becoming more and more saturated, but RareWire cuts through all the noise by providing one of the strongest platforms on the market today. We offer true cross-platform native apps built in our flexible WIRE language. The App Creation Studio doesn't require XCode, Eclipse, or any complicated IDEs. Developers don't need to know Objective-C, Java, or any advanced programming languages. No other app building tools can claim this ease of use, combined with such a powerful language.
The RareWire App Creation Studio makes it substantially easier to build native apps for iOS and Android devices. RareWire has built an engine that requires the base skill set of a web designer, not a developer. While most apps take developers weeks to build, RareWire apps can be built in a matter of days.
Our primary focus is to provide the greatest platform on the market for developing native mobile apps. RareWire will continue to leverage our App Creation Studio development platform, offering its core application engine, templates, documentation, training, support, and content management to provide you everything you need to develop apps on today’s popular tablet and mobile devices.
