" 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

Tower of London

"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

Tower of London

"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

Tower of London

"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

"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. "

Tower of London

"Calvium took the time to properly understand what we wanted to achieve with the app and the result of that was something that very much looked like a Danlers product; the interface and graphics 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

Tower of London

"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

Tower of London

"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

"Bristol based developers Calvium 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"

Rachel Lichtenstein, artist, writer, curator

Tower of London

"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

"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."

"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

Tower of London

"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

Tower of London

"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"

Claire Doherty, Director of Situations

Tower of London

"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"
