"Working with Calvium to create the UCAN go app has been a pleasure. Their ability to work with partners and collaborators has resulted in a wonderful working relationship in which both parties have learnt huge amounts. Their solid technical background and confidence in creative problem solving kept the project moving and all deadlines were kept. "
Jane Latham, UCAN Productions
""Working with Calvium to produce apps that our design engineers can test in their own work environments has been revolutionary. Now we have a great way to develop new Knowledge Management capabilities independently of our core IT systems.
Jonathan Barrass, Knowledge Management Specialist, Design Systems Engineering, Rolls-Royce plc
" Calvium were really supportive of the project: the students were given an induction in AppTrails and extra support when they got a bit stuck. There were well defined deadlines to stick to and the development process has been incredibly smooth and straightforward."
Laura Hilton, Visitor Services Manager, The Suspension Bridge Trust
""Having an app was crucial to everything we want Bristol24/7 to be in the future. Huge thanks to Calvium who have dealt with all our requirements and panics in a calm and measured way throughout, and ensured delivery of a great product."
Chris Brown, Bristol 24/7
"The Great War Stories map app was the first that we have commissioned and we found the staff at Calvium were responsive to our needs, took care in explaining issues in a way we could understand and developed something which we are proud to promote as part of the Bristol 2014 programme."
Mel Kelly, Producer, Festival of Ideas
"Working with Calvium was terrific. Their expert knowledge in designing AppTrails helped us select sites and create a narrative thread that was very much aimed at our intended users, while at the same time not losing sight of the academic research that underpins each walk."
Fabrizio Nevola, University of Exeter
""We are extremely pleased with the Fatbrain app, which hit impressive download targets and improved sales. We would certainly work with Calvium again.""
Pete Trembath, Founder of Fatbrain

Marcus Romer, Pilot Theatre
"Calvium took our ideas and aims, and made them technically viable via creative solutions. It was Calvium’s input on our approach that led to the use of beacons in Door Into The Dark and we’ve never looked back."
Amy Rose, Anagram
"Calvium had both the technological know-how and the conceptual understanding necessary to partner with the project. We were able to work together to develop a custom designed app that contained soundscapes addressing relationships with place and community. "
Pedro Rebelo, Project Lead, Queen's University Belfast
""Calvium took the time to properly understand what we wanted to achieve and the result was something that looked very much like a Danlers product; the interface reflected the unfussy, clear ethos of our brand. It was a joy to work with Calvium and we look forward to continuing our relationship.""
Julian Kay, Managing Director, Danlers
""The app has enabled officers to undertake rapid ‘at-risk’ surveys that link directly to the HER database and trigger automated actions such as letters to property owners. It also allows for members of the public to submit alerts when they see a potential problem with a building, helping to manage the heritage of the city.""
Peter Insole, Heritage Office at Bristol City Council
""We have been delighted working with Calvium. From start to finish we have felt safe knowing that we collaborated with professional people eager to have our project succeed. The communication has been top notch despite the distance between Copenhagen and Bristol. I truly recommend working with Calvium.""
Rebecca Bannor-Addae, AAB Housing Association
"“Listeners will hear the stories of people who were on the scene when Sandy battered the shore, along with stories from people who are leading the rebuilding and you will hear from those who warn about rebuilding on a part of land so at risk from nature.” "
"“Following a rigorous tender process, the City of London Corporation partnered with Calvium because we knew we could rely on their professionalism and their expertise – not to mention their design skills and creativity. Jo and the team delivered exactly what we were looking for, even if it was something we hadn’t thought of before: their advice was at all times excellent and they solved any problem we encountered easily.We’re delighted with our City Visitor Trail app, and we trust Calvium absolutely to do a good job. Most importantly, thanks to them for their help and for a great app!”"
Stuart Millar - Visitor Marketing Executive, City of London Corporation
"“The sound-walk designer was simple to use and made a lot of the technology seem accessible, allowing me to concentrate on developing the audio content. This was obviously due to being a tried and tested formula for producing walking apps and made good use of Calvium's long experience in the field.”"
Lucy Harrison, Artist
""Bristol based developers Calvium, lead by Jo Reid, really drove this project forward, with their highly professional work ethic, competence and years of experience in the field of new media. It was a joy to work with this company and I learnt a great deal from them about new technologies, GPS activated platforms and digital media. Jo Reid was extremely patient and supportive of me throughout the project, even when I pushed the boundaries of the technology or found it hard to understand the language being used or Calvium’s requirements from me.""
Rachel Lichtenstein; artist, writer, curator
"Working with Calvium to create the immersive sound-scape that is Guardian Streetstories has been just fantastic. We have been able to compose, test and refine over 70 original recordings to create this app within a couple of months."
Francesca Panetta, Guardian Special Projects Editor, Multimedia
"The National Trust’s excellent new Soho Stories app takes such curiosity beyond Wikipedia and offers site-specific audio history and information. The level of detail is excellent but never tedious..."
Matt Warman, The Telegraph
"It has been a pleasure working with the team at Calvium to develop Escape from the Tower, we are delighted with the final product and initial download figures."
Aileen Peirce, Historic Royal Palaces
""We had been thinking about making an app for ages but didn’t know how to do it and never had the time. Calvium are brilliant, they helped us to think creatively and practically about what we wanted to make, opening doors for us and creating test versions right from the first day.""
Charlotte Bond, General Manager Kneehigh Theatre
""Jo Reid from Calvium trained me to use App Furnace to help me get to grips with app development for the Curzon Cinemas project, which is easy and simple to use.""
Dr Charlotte Crofts, University of the West of England
""At Situations, we aspire to testing the limits of where and when artworks take place and in Calvium we found a partner who shared this commitment to pioneering new forms of experience. In the case of Missorts, they helped us to navigate the complex field of locative media and produced a delivery mechanism for the artwork which responds sensitively to the author’s aspirations for the technology to disappear.""
Claire Doherty, Director of Situations
""Our one day sprint with Calvium meant that the young people and artists involved in the Tooting Bec Common Knowledge project could contribute to the design and development of the app. It was amazing to see our ideas turned into an app in just a matter of days""
Jacques Nimki, Artist
""We were delighted to be able to create the mShed Fortunes iPhone game using AppFurnace. We are a small company designing innovative street and pervasive games. It's great that we can now create great iPhone Apps, without having to rely on freelance programmers to build them for us. This will be of huge benefit to us as we continue to develop fantastic location based apps for our clients.""
Simon Johnson, Director SlingShot
