We help startups build their MVP, iterate to product-market fit, or scale big.

By bringing to the table award winning product / UX design and world-class tech talent in iOS, Android and backend development.



Halcyon Mobile is a group of tech ‘savvies’ in their twenties doing their thing from Transylvania – land of mystery and intrigue, and home to an obscure 15th century count whose name escapes us just now...


Feeding Focused on startups, we help them at every stage of their product development pre- and post product-market fit. We know them inside-out, as we’ve been working with them from way back when mobile apps were born. What’s more, we are a startup too, having our own products. We know you, because we are you.

Rather than tout ourselves as a "jack of all trades" and risk spreading ourselves too thin, our motto is "Do one thing, and do it right." Thus, we focus exclusively on mobile app design and development since 2005.

Mobile UI/UX Design

Our Design team takes pride in developing great mobile experiences. Whenever one of our Designers stops taking pride in his work, we give him a hug, buy him a Fanta and send him to a day spa. All kidding aside, we're really only satisfied when mobile users experience the utility of our apps through a beautiful experience. The voice of the people is what matters; it fuels our creativity.

Mobile App Development

Someone really smart once said “design is just a dream without careful execution”. We agree with this statement and, thus, rely on our technical skills to deliver a solid product. Our development and design teams work hand-in-hand to implement bold ideas in the most precise and reliable way. And did we mention on-budget, too?

iOS (iPhone & iPad), Android (Phones & Tablets), Windows Phone, Windows 8, Mobile Web (soon), Atari 5200 (in development)

We’ve designed & created high-quality apps for startups from a variety of industries, such as finance, healthcare, sports, travel, entertainment, education etc. The founders we’ve worked with chose us because:

Szekely Szabi CEO /Founder at Halcyon mobile

Halcyon’s other founder, Szabi, is more pragmatic. He’s responsible for running current projects, but doesn’t mind picking up the phone to discuss potential new apps. When he’s not "stuck in traffic" (his code phrase for “naps”), you'll find him in a meeting room with Levi discussing Halcyon's next big thing.

Need a client-server solution? You’d better call Zoli! With a superhuman knowledge base ranging from back-end programming to desktop and mobile development, Zoli is the man.

Fodor Eniko office manager at Halcyon mobile

Eniko
Office Manager

Fodor Eniko office manager at Halcyon mobile

dislikes: losing, arrogant people, cigarette smoke

Gati Antal Arnold android developer at Halcyon mobile

Anti
iOS Developer

Gati Antal Arnold android developer at Halcyon mobile

A soon-to-be "master" in Computer Science (about to receive his MSc), Anti is not 'as green as he's cabbage-looking'. With his mellow voice of a rock band vocalist, he is quite a James Bond in programming. And yep, he'd never say no either to a vodka martini with a twist.

likes: excursions, solving logic problems, nature as it is, swimming
dislikes: Maths, messiness & tardiness, silence

Meszaros Peter android developer at Halcyon mobile

Peti
iOS Developer

Meszaros Peter android developer at Halcyon mobile

Rather an active listener than speaker, our own "saint" Peter doesn't let bugs through his gate, always making sure the apps he hands over are pristine clear (of bugs of course). He's one reliable lad, that's for sure. Could we ask for more?

likes: creativity, sweet goodies, cycling
dislikes: politics and pessimism

Szabolcs Android / Back-end developer at Halcyon mobile

Android / Back-end

Szabolcs android / back-end developer at Halcyon mobile

Valti ios developer at Halcyon mobile

Valti
iOS Developer

Valti iOS developer at Halcyon mobile

Back in 1989 when Depeche Mode started "enjoying the silence", he wasn't even born yet. Proud of his provenance, he's a candid fella who doesn't back off when it comes to giving a hand in making some fruit decorations, not to mention his dexterity in programming.

likes: sports in general, beer and silence (weird, huh?)
dislikes: Mondays, ads in the browser, dishwashing

Mate ios developer at Halcyon mobile

Mate
iOS Developer

Mate iOS developer at Halcyon mobile

He's one of our summer interns who decided to take things seriously. There's no such thing as waste of time, there's only work hard and play harder for him. Quite a straightforward guy he is, so you’d better have yourself prepared, because he's here to stay.

dislikes: smoking, waiting in vain, heavy metal

Gelli at Halcyon mobile

Atti at Halcyon mobile

Norbi at Halcyon mobile

Alpar
Quality Assurance

Alpar at Halcyon mobile

dislikes: sauteed cabbage, staying hungry, walking around the city alone without music playing in the earphones

Emanuel at Halcyon mobile

Zoli
Full-stack web developer

Alpar at Halcyon mobile

He's our Yoda for web projects.

Emanuel at Halcyon mobile

Zsolti
Android developer

Alpar at Halcyon mobile

Emanuel at Halcyon mobile

dislikes: smoking, when people don’t answer their mobile phone, slow computers

Botond at Halcyon mobile

Botond
iOS developer

Another Halcyon intern whom we got to stay (he was just that proficient). Botond had been an iDevice fan since he first laid hands on one, and has been an enthusiast ever since. He just loves classy apps! And building mobile products that are a sheer delight to use is his number one priority here.

Zsolt at Halcyon mobile

Zsolt
Designer & Character Animator

Zsolt at Halcyon mobile

Zsolt is unequivocally a one-of-a-kind animator. A multifunctional artist, with a wide range of experience from sculpture to music, he just loves fusioning ideas from one field to another, and we just love what he gets as a result out of these.

likes: being as active as possible
dislikes: not doing things, popular stuff

Simplify lives and create joy through technology.

Forget about high gas prices and reality TV: one good thing about the 21st century is that work doesn't have to feel like work, especially when what you do revolves around that timeless human gift known as creativity.


And so, instead of burdening our free-thinkers with a long list of rules and regulations, we’ve all agreed to abide by a simple set of democratic values and principles. Liberated from dogma and doctrine, Halcyon can move forward with minimal friction. Every team member is free to live, breathe, create – and daydream about wizards from time to time.
