Desktop Application Development Services
Originally started as a purely C++ development company over 31 years ago, today ScienceSoft maintains the traditions of desktop software development while nurturing experience in the web and mobile application development.
We offer cross-platform desktop app development services to build and upgrade desktop software with the new functionality of any complexity.
Our Desktop Software Portfolio
ScienceSoft’s team helped the Customer evolve one of their core desktop applications with new functionality. The team reduced development costs by 40% applying Qt framework to enable the application to run on both Windows and Mac by the effort of one development team instead of two.
ScienceSoft delivered a desktop app for managing purchased e-books to help the Customer win more loyal clients. The app allows to download purchased books without launching a web browser, automatically categorizes them and has user-friendly search functions.
ScienceSoft developed a Mac version of the all-in-one web browser specifically suitable for music connoisseurs, video lovers and people with an active online presence. Our team also implemented a system of updates for Windows and Mac as well as a solution for torrents management right from the browser.
ScienceSoft created a video downloading application for an IT company. iLivid allows users to download videos from the YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe, Dailymotion and other websites. It also provides an option to watch videos from popular file-sharing and torrent resources including RapidShare, MediaFire, Hotfile, and 4shared
ScienceSoft developed the award-winning productivity tool that has been repeatedly acknowledged as one of the best Internet blockers by world-renowned media like the BBC, the Daily Telegraph, Le Monde and others.

FULL-CYCLE DESKTOP SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
ScienceSoft is ready to carry out end-to-end development or join an ongoing project to handle a particular development stage. We also offer dedicated development teams or separate developer resources to augment your in-house team.
We start with an in-depth analysis of your business needs and transform them into detailed software requirements.
Desktop software architecture
We carefully choose technologies and build a sustainable architecture to account for your specific business needs and challenges and ensure cost-effective development.
We consider user needs, brand identity and the latest design trends to create visually appealing and user-friendly applications.
Desktop software development
Adopting Agile principles, CI/CD, regular code reviews and unit testing, we deliver high-quality software fast. While working on desktop projects, our team focuses on:
- High performance. Our applications solve complex tasks quickly.
- Security. We ensure a multilayer application protection.
- Smooth integration with required software.
- Application access to the needed OS functions: rebooting the computer, timely blocking internet access, auto-updating applications, incorporating the app’s icons in the taskbar or their functionality into the OS context menu.
For more information about our approach to software development, check our development process page.
We perform functional, performance, usability, integration, and security testing and introduce a reasonable amount of test automation to meet the highest quality standards.
We also prepare well-structured test documentation (test plans, test cases, checklists, etc.) that simplifies the application’s modification in the future.
We offer a full range of application support (L1-L3) and maintenance services with a duration of up to 10 years that can be prolonged when the service period expires.
