Why us

Rakuten Aquafadas solutions enable you to create business apps fast. Build your own app with drag and drop components, without specialist developers, and with straightforward maintenance, then customise and integrate them with internal and external components. Finally, fill them with outstanding content – we’re proud of our French roots, so we call it haute couture rendering!

Build mobile apps for business

Use drag and drop components to create cross-platform native apps with ease. Build once, publish everywhere, including iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS X and Web – deploy rich content including ePUB and HTML5.

Create content

Use our advanced authoring tools to repurpose your legacy documents, or design new content from scratch, adding interactivity features, rich media, and more.

Engage and monetise

Attract users, enable collaboration, and drive loyalty. Create revenue with in-app purchases and ads, while keeping an eye on performance with analytics.


Stay ahead of your competitors by offering unique mobile experiences to your users. Our clients benefit from decades of Rakuten experience and knowledge, produced by our global R&D centres – we’re always crafting new technology to help you engage your users.
