Other major releases include an all new iiNet Customer Support App, a Barbie Kinect installation for Mattel® Malaysia and an AR mapping app for development giant Mirvac. “The growth in work originating from agencies in Melbourne and Sydney, combined with the significant competitive advantages we are building in highly technical dev meant that an east coast office was a natural next step for the business,” explained Adapptor Managing Director, Marc Loveridge.
