Mobile app Design Development and App Store Publish
What makes us different
We’ve been building Native and Hybrid mobile apps for some of the best companies since 2011. Bluestone is a premier mobile application development company, providing mobile solutions to a global clientele on all the major mobile platforms.
I hired Bluestone because I wanted an app for my business that my clients could download and keep on their phones and I wanted a professional-looking website.
They charged me $16k to make a progressive web app that does nothing for me. I don’t use it. I get complaints because the app doesn’t download as expected. They did a truly terrible job allegedly designing a site. Their idea of design was to apparently recycle old pages they had done for other companies and spice it up by writing the page name twice using two different looking fonts.
Hiring them was the most significant waste of money since starting my business. This experience does, however, provide two silver linings. First, I learned a lesson that cost me only $16k so it could have been more painful. Second, I have ten years to sue them for breach of contract so I can wait until I’m not so busy to file my complaint.
They appear to know the right things to say to look good in business. Accordingly, they may post a response that amounts to “we are sorry you are disappointed. Please contact us so we can work it out.” Don’t fall for that. I have asked to speak to their lawyers as well as their business leaders with no response. I have not seen any evidence that they intend to work anything out and I get the feeling that they couldn’t care less whether I am happy with the product since I have already paid in full.
Bluestone Apps replied to this review
Hello, We are sorry to see this review. We developed the website and PWA as outlined in the project. The issues received by the client in our support system were resolved. They were based on the BIO pages not working. These pages and the other pages of the website and PWA load. IT can be viewed here https://becklawcenter.com/ . There are not any unresovled support tickets from this client. If there is any legitimate issue, we would be happy to accept a support ticket and resolve it. This is a PWA. There is a link on the top right corner of https://becklawcenter.com/ that explains how users are to install the PWA icon on their phones. This is not an app in the app store and has been created as a PWA (Progressive Web App) that is not published into the APP Store. We collaborated with this client over 100's of hours of work to receive their approval to publish the site and PWA live. We are available via our support system for any issues the client needs and will resolve them as has been done to ths point.
Company spent several extra months on our project, delayed delivery over 6 months, created a product lacking prospective insight and communication about future charges to the parent company on the created product, refused to release code for several months until we hired a lawyer and spent thousands in extra charges to get our own pre-paid product, and now company is advertising our product snapshots and ideas on their website. Disappointing experience with Kevin Schick, Larry Allen and Boom scott.
