BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview
BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.
|Customer Review Experience||Value|
|Positive Review||5 points per review|
|Neutral Review||3 points per review|
|Negative Review||1 point per review|
BBB letter grades represent the BBB's opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business' grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.
BBB Letter Grade Scale
Star Rating scale
BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.

Complaint: Misrepresented ability to produce and deliver In May 2012 I hired Apptology (AKA Appcellence LLC) to produce and deliver an App by August 2012. They were unable to deliver the App and as such our firm lost thousands of dollars in Marketing as well as income. We subsequently agreed to allow them to another opportunity continue, as we were already committed. The result was 5 more failures to deliver, with the last being Feb 25, 2013. Note the date of this email in response to my needing an update: From: **** ***** <*****@apptology.basecamphq.com> Date: Mon, Feb 25, 2013 at 8:17 AM Subject: Re: SporeRx iPhone App Need NEW BUILD! To: ****** ****** <*****@gmail.com> **** ***** commented on the message: Need NEW BUILD! ******, ****** just got back to office today and has been working on the app while Ankit has been working on the backend. I will ask them to post a response soon. **** Further evidence of the project not being completed! Which ultimately ended in our ending the relation after they failed for the last time to deliver the App in time for our industry's top conference. What finally broke our relationship was two issues: 1. The revelation that Apptology/Appcellence had mislead us with their development abilities, such that upon review by their CTO (Mr **** ***** in India) during one of our conference calls, we (he and myself) noticed that his "programmers" lied to him and had failed to disclose to him and I that they were using our server here in the USA to "display" data on the App. This was contrary to the agreed ability of the App to function independent from a Internet Connection. Mr. ***** placed the call on MUTE after addressing his team in a LOUD fashion. 2. Their continued inability to deliver as agreed a final product. During our last teleconference with the CEO, CTO, and our project manager ******** *********, both myself and our CTO Mr *** ******* noted that they continued to lie about their ability to deliver as promised as well as the method in with the App was being developed. I reached out to Mr ****** to inquire as to his desire to "resolve" this issue and was met with an email stating that he was not. Apptology/Appcellence has lied to our firm and manipulated us into believing that they were capable of providing the service for which they had been contracted. Further, as opposed to their beginning communications which were by Mr ****** and Mr *****, they failed to provide an interpreter after dropping us off to a Indian Programmer which further complicated our relationship, and was not whom we perceived would be the developer as we were made to believe that Mr ***** would be handling the programming. Apptology/Appcellence preyed on our lack of knowledge related to the programming functions of the IPhone, as well as our urgent need of product...we have tried our best to work with them, even to the point that members of their staff had hinted to the pending demise of the project due to their limitations. We humbly ask for the assistance of the BBB in helping us resolve this matter.
Desired Settlement: Refund, or release of the Binary Code through Build 3.3
