About Us

appsolute leads to certain success.

Corporate Goals

Appsolute GmbH was founded in 2009. Holger Meyer, a dedicated programmer, is the sole owner and managing director. He has been active in the software industry for more than 20 years. The company is characterized by flexible and goal-oriented processes. A flat hierarchy means any decision path is short and precise.

Even prior to Apple opening the App store in 2008, ushering in the mobile revolution, Holger Meyer had developed his first mobile app for the iPhone. Steadily growing demand – appsolute GmbH has proven it can produce apps with increasing complexity for the App Store.

Worldwide Mobile App Downloads (Apple App Store, in billions):

iLiga and Better Ears: Stars in the App Store

One of the first apps developed by appsolute was iLiga, an iPhone app for football fans. It was the number 1 app in the German App Store for multiple weeks and was prominently displayed on the front page of the Apple App Store.

In season 2009/2010 iLiga was sold to motain GmbH. appsolute was entrusted with continued development of iLiga and has developed additional football apps for motain, including the Android version of iLiga, the official app for Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern Munich. iLiga was later renamed to oneFootball. With over 20 million downloads (as of September 2015), it is the most popular football app in the world.

Using his expertise as an audio engineer where he initially worked in Berlin recording studios – Holger Meyer started to develop specialized music apps.

The first music-oriented app releases were Karajan Ear Trainer (later renamed to Better Ears for licensing reasons) and vTuner Radio. The latter was number 1 for several weeks in the German App Store charts. In 2014 the app was renamed to Receiver as a result of contract rights expiration with the the vTuner radio database.

BMW AG – impressed by the performance of vTuner Radio – contracted appsolute GmbH to develop the web-radio app for the BMW ConnectedDrive system.
