02 What We Do

When creating mobile apps, we take care of everything. And we do mean everything:

Get in touch
01

First of all, let’s get to know each other

Ideally around the same table. To discuss what you actually need, why you’d like to achieve it, what the weak spots of your business are, and what we can do to help. We’re experts at asking the right questions, so it’s likely we’ll come across things that had never occurred to you before.

02

Here’s where we get to work—armed with our sketchbooks and computers

And we’ll start drawing, creating, and designing. We’ll look into your competitors, why they do things the way they do and if they can be done totally differently. We’ll be looking for new solutions. In the end, we’ll propose the concept for your new app, with clear arguments and an exact price quote.

03

Things are heating up – now we verify some hypotheses

Neglect UX (user experience) and the app will usually fail. That’s why we create personas, do research among your customers, and test all the design elements. The result is a prototype that is intuitive for customers to navigate and use.

04

It has to be solid, down to the last pixel to every last pixel

Our graphics make us look sharp. Each new app gets its own colours, shapes, style, and an original set of icons. We always create a stylebook that describes the visual logic of the app, too. No compromising, not in any phase of the project, and that’s especially true for design. It just has to be perfect.

05

Now we get to it. Let’s get that app running

We develop the app for both main systems – in Swift (for iOS) and in Kotlin (for Android). We often make our own libraries that we create during the process available as opensource. And we run automatic tests for each step of development. Just to be sure.

06

Finished apps are forged in fire

We’ve got a special tester on the team—our coders’ least favorite person. His one and only job: to find bugs. He puts every app through absolute torture, and on all devices. And bugs he finds get squashed immediately.

07

It’s coming – D day, zero hour. We’re ready

Here it is – your new app is getting released! All this is just the beginning, though. We’ll take care of marketing and get people to actually download it. We’ll run the campaigns, create texts for it, and every day we’ll monitor how people are rating it. In short, we’ll look after it for you.

08

In the app, we prefer to measure just everything

The app is packed with mobile analytics that tell us everything: what users open it, what they do there, which way they leave, when the app crashes, why and how exactly… This enables us to optimize and further modify any of its elements. We’re there for you all the time.

09

We care all the time

Especially when you need an upgrade or a second app.

When we say a solid app, we don’t mean just good-looking – it has to work as a whole.

We truly love top apps. But most mobile phones are full of the other ones

That’s why we focus on the top ones and don’t deal with anything else.

04 Futured step by step

Past of Future(d)

01

2010: Nights spent on the network

After spending several years in prominent development companies, Lukáš Strnadel decides to build up his own. A few weeks later he registers The Funtasty, a name under which it would work until the rebranding in 2019. The first big order for Leo Express arrives, almost immediately winning various awards.

2010

02

2012: 10 people in the team

A studio with just a few people gradually grows into an actual company which, from the very start, specializes in one thing – mobile apps. And that’s why it quickly wins big projects. The VIS app wins at AppParade.

2012

03

2013: More awards

Projects by Funtasty continue to receive awards, like the prestigious FWA Mobile of the Day awarded to its Trainboard app.

2013

04

2015: Crushing Victory at App Parade

The RESTU redesign is a huge success. The number of bookings in restaurants made through the app grew rapidly. Both the investors and professionals were excited. The Funtasty (now Futured) wins industry awards in all three main categories at App Parade.

2015

05

2018: Development and operation of our own app

The Funtasty (now Futured) no longer works only for clients but starts to create its own projects as well. It launches the Grason app which transformed the way restaurants hire seasonal workers. In addition to being a developer, the company tried to be an investor and then a marketer as well. Deloitte recognizes Funtasty for its contribution to interconnecting technologies and business, the quality of its solutions, and its success on the market. In 2018, The Funtasty opens its new Backend department with four new developers.

06

2018: Futured at the very top of the discipline

Futured has its own team of 40 members, making it one of the largest mobile app developers in the Czech Republic. And its clients are big as well, as it works for example for Jablotron, Škoda, or the globally successful Angelcam startup. Its apps are used by millions of people every day, and the team is rewarded for it with a new design headquarters in the Rozmaryn office building in Brno.

2018

07

2019: Turnover of 70 million CZK and a new branch

Futured opens another office in Prague. Its estimated turnover reaches 70 million CZK.
