13 July 2016

The leading creator of charts and tools for native app development has for the first time published animated videos to bring its offering to life.

shinobicontrols has produced two short animated videos that fully explain its heritage and products, and embedded them on its site. The company partnered with animation specialists Kuro Dragon to ensure the finished animations were as useful to shinobicontrols’ potential clients as possible.

shinobicontrols’ Chief Operating Officer Stuart Grey explained: “Our app development tools are trusted by thousands of mobile developers, agencies and enterprises to make stunning user interfaces for iOS and Android, but through the great accessibility of these videos, we can now quickly demonstrate the power and versatility of our products. This will enable us to reach even more developers globally.

“Kuro Dragon were very thorough in the way they worked with us, walking us through the end to end process and chatting through a number of interesting ideas. We’re extremely pleased with the end result.”

Stuart Howard, Kuro Dragon’s founder added: “Our intention was to create videos that explained both shinobicontrols and shinobicharts quickly and succinctly to someone that was likely to be hearing about the brand and its tools for the first time.”

The resulting videos, which are embedded in the shinobicontrols website at, will be used at events and throughout marketing communications, including social media, as tools to build relationships with new and existing clients alike.

Since its inception in 2011, shinobicontrols has been creating comprehensive, powerful and highly interactive User Interface (UI) controls for iOS and Android developers. The company’s first product, shinobicharts, was launched to market in 2012 and the business has since grown rapidly to provide UI solutions and an expanding portfolio of products to thousands of global customers and a growing number of enterprise clients. shinobicontrols is part of UK-based bespoke software development consultancy Scott Logic Limited.
