We develop simple, elegant, and powerful applications for iOS and Mac.
We are a small software development shop located in Chicago, Illinois that specializes in crafting elegant mobile and desktop applications for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. We know firsthand the enormous potential a well designed application has in expanding the reach of small businesses, or simplifying internal workflows at larger organizations. We also understand what it takes to build a company from the ground up. And with a team of expert developers who have been developing on the Apple platforms since before it was cool (think blueberry iMac), we also have the experience and enthusiasm it takes to build powerful, native mobile and desktop applications.

“Design is the conscious effort to impose a meaningful order.”— Victor Papanek

Client Services

At FadingRed, we believe that a high quality application can make a major impact in people's lives. Whether you need an app to make your internal workflow more efficient, or you're looking to create a splash in the App Store, we love collaborating with other businesses to build stand out software. As a small, bootstrapped company, we also understand what it takes to get a new business off the ground and have a special place in our hearts for start-ups.

Our team develops with a passion and an attention to detail that we think sets us apart. We work within a tried and true system of efficient, test-driven, agile development that we feel produces superior software. Our developers have been developing on Apple platforms for nearly a decade, but these days our focus is in creating for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Our own award-winning products have been featured by Apple and are frequently recognized for their simplicity, intuitiveness, and attention to detail.

From concept to implementation, and beyond, we help our clients transform their vision into exceptional apps. Check out our services page for more information on what we have to offer.
