How it works

The Glitterbug Way

Our Services

Strategic Brainstorming

We will sit down with you and go through the app features you want, listen to your needs and brainstorm ideas for your app.

App Development

We design the look & feel of your app and once you’re happy, we start development. Every two weeks you get a new version of a working app!


App Publishing & Hosting

We can prepare your app for publishing on Apple and Google stores and publish your app under our developer account. We can also host your server side code.

Irish & Female led

Glitterbug is a female-led, tech led Irish  development company founded by Laura Cavanagh & Colin Vaughan. We’re based in Donegal & Dublin.


As a small, independent business, we know that cost & quality matter. It’s all about finding the balance. Our apps start at 3K Euros and we give you a lot of features for a reasonable cost. 

Milestones Method

With us, you get an update on your app every two weeks including videos and a working copy of your app. 

At the end of each milestone, you can decide if you are ready to go ahead with the next one and you pay us per milestone. 

We’re App Experts

We have developed our own apps since 2016 and we have over 45,000 app downloads in Apple and Google. Users love our Be Our Guest Wedding, Quizland and Bubblegum Fiction apps.

No Technical Jargon

We are friendly people who will talk to you about apps without getting too technical! 

We will show you what we’re going to do and give you working demos instead of bogging you down in technical details.

What our customers say

This is a very practical app that helps you with organizing a wedding. It’s not just a checklist, but a real tool that actually integrates the community.
