I've worked with a number of in house teams and out sourced suppliers over a 20 year career. Working with SpaceO was one of the best experiences i've had. Always on Skype or elance email when i needed them, delivered brilliantly, with polish and nice additions to a crazy time schedule (an app in 4 days!). I trust them and am already giving them another job.James Balmain
