We ♥ web applications!
At mobalean we love to build innovative web services for Japan and the world. Our experience will help transform your ideas into successful online services.
Mobalean is lead by Henri Servomaa, the original founder and mobile developer. At Mobalean we strive to develop services which are loved by our clients and users. By working in an agile manner, quickly adapting to changing requirements, we can deliver quickly and often.
Hailing from Finland, Henri has a long history with computers and the internet. With a background in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, he has worked in Japan as Software Developer and System Admin since 2001. In 2005, he joined a company to develop mobile sites for the Japanese market and has been involved in mobile ever since.
Cleve is a Canadian engineer. He came to Tokyo in 1994, and has lived here ever since. He has broad experience as a software developer, which includes development of mainframe software, Internet applications and mobile apps (Android and iOS). He is especially skilled at writing Java applications (vd. Simredo 4, Grafikilo 15). When not programming, Cleve enjoys improv acting and studying languages, such as Latin and Esperanto.
Our strength is crafting web services for both Japanese and international markets. We bring our technical and cultural experience to help you adapt your ideas into successful products.
We develop with Ruby on Rails and use the best agile practices and tools, such as test driven development and continuous integration to achieve quality.
We are the leading provider of technical expertise about the Japanese mobile web. Our Keitai Web Technology Guide is a great starting point for learning about the challenges of Japanese mobile development. Developers can find more technical details in our Ketai-Dev Wiki.

When you are busy consulting and working on client projects, it's easy to postpone your own brand development. You always think: "I'll get to it after this project". But you never do. Until something triggers the whole process, and then bang! Later, you curse yourself for not having done it earlier...d'oh.
Our trigger was realizing that a lot has changed and that we have so much storytelling material, that it just needs to get out. But more on that in later posts. For now, here's what's new.
In today's social media paradise, you really need a square logo. Originally, we made two lines out of our name and that was it. So now it's time for something a bit more creative. Being a pragmatic, "keep it simple" person, I asked my friend Yurie Ogawa for a logo that can be used standalone or in conjunction with the existing text. She did a great job. I like the simple effectiveness of it. So whenever you see the green "m" coming through or rolling with the sprocket, it'd be us ;-P
Anyway, we'll see how it evolves and post our findings here.
That's all folks! Talk to you again soon.
