Visiting New York and Building A Mobile App

October 14th, 2014

A lot of our members use their mobile phones to get Nimble loans.

Our mobile site is good but we wanted to make the Nimble mobile experience even better.

To create the most simple and convenient way to borrow money – loans with just a few taps on a device.

So we decided to build the Nimble mobile app.

To build something truly amazing, we knew that we needed to collaborate with the best. So a year ago we started searching for the best app design team in the world. We spoke to the startup community, stalked winners of the most prestigious app awards and called agencies all over the world.

We even contacted the developers behind our favourite apps.

Eventually, our search took us to all the way to New York. We soon found ourselves sitting with a bagel in hand at the cozy SoHo offices of Fueled.

Why Fueled?

Fueled built apps for some of the most innovative companies in the world. Apps for The Discovery Channel, Porsche and Elevatr.

Stunning, beautiful, fun apps.


Free snacks and popcorn!

After a week of chats, whiteboard sketches and getting no sleep because of constant sirens, we were ready. We decided we’d found the right partners to work with our talented internal team and build the Nimble app.

Over a year later, after a lot of designing, building, developing and testing, we started to see the first version of the Nimble app come to life.

The Nimble platform is complex. It looks at over 4,500 data points to lend money so quickly and efficiently. It’s not easy to then make an app that integrates seamlessly into the complex Nimble technology – and the fast moving lives of our members.

It has taken us months of testing and improving it to make sure there wasn’t a pixel out of place.

Now finally, it’s nearly ready for you to download it.

Keep an eye on your emails over the next few weeks for when we announce it’s live – on both IOS and Android.

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come…
