Tailored to your needs

Since Sunbird Images became active with developing mobile applications in the year 2009 we have collaborated with a variety of over 100 business partners. Whereas in the first few years we have mainly focused on in-licensing content to be incorporated into our frameworks Sunbird soon got commissioned with building apps. Organisations as different as universities, other scientific institutions, the international publishing industry, various governmental institutions, and also business corporations of various sizes and locations have been working with Sunbird Images to fulfil their needs.


 Commissioned contracts include a variety of very different tasks and projects such as building tailor-made apps, creating AI-based optical or acoustic learning algorithms, carrying out citizen science projects or helping to create learning tools for educational institutions in the digital age to name but a few.

Often multiple skills (AI competence, app  building capabilities, knowledge about App Store dynamics, expertise with complex scientific, especially biological content, as well as the knowledge how to connect complex databases to apps, etc.) are being used in one single project to fulfil customers needs. So, please do get in contact with us if you have an idea in mind where we might be able to help with our skills!
