Tinloof's Shopify app developers

Tinloof is a Shopify app development company that specializes in helping e-commerce businesses have tailored Shopify apps built for them.

Our development team is highly experienced in building and managing e-commerce websites and apps using the Shopify platform.

As a Shopify agency and trusted Shopify partner, we have the knowledge and expertise to help you create custom apps that add unique functionality to your online store and help you achieve your wider business goals.

We understand that every business is unique and therefore, the needs of your business may not be met by pre-existing apps on the Shopify app store.

That's why we offer custom Shopify app development services.

We started Tinloof in 2019, and since then we have built dozens of online stores and helped many businesses with their Shopify app development needs.

Shopify app development process

Building a Shopify app involves several steps:

1. Understanding business needs: The first vital step in building a Shopify app is to understand the specific needs of your business and what you want the app to achieve. This will help to ensure that the app is tailored to your unique requirements and meets your goals.

2. Checking if the app already exists: Before starting to build a new app, it's essential to check if an app with similar functionality already exists on the Shopify app store. If it does, it may be more cost-effective to use that app rather than building a new one.

3. Designing the app: Once you have a clear understanding of your business needs, the next step is to design the app. This includes creating wireframes, mockups, and a prototype of the app. This will help you to visualize how the app will look and function before development begins.

4. Developing the app: After the design is finalised, the development process begins. The app will be built using the Shopify API and Liquid template language. Our team will work to ensure that the app functions correctly and is responsive on different devices.

5. Testing and deploying the app: Once the development process is complete, the app will be tested to ensure that it is working correctly and that there are no bugs. Once the testing process is complete, the app will be deployed to the Shopify app store, so it can be easily installed on a merchant's store.

Custom Shopify app development

Custom Shopify apps are apps that are developed specifically for an individual business or client, to meet their unique needs and requirements.

These apps are not available on the Shopify app store and can only be installed on the client's store.

They are built using the Shopify API and Liquid template language, and can be created for a variety of purposes, such as adding unique functionality, integrating with other tools, or customizing the checkout experience.

On the other hand, public Shopify apps are apps that are available to all Shopify stores on the Shopify app store. They are pre-built apps that can be installed and used by any store. Public apps are created to serve a wide range of businesses and their functionalities are usually generic.

A custom Shopify app could be needed in contrast with a public app when a business has a specific need that is not met by any of the public apps available on the app store.

For example, a business may require an app that integrates with a specific third-party tool, or they may want to create a custom checkout experience.

A custom Shopify app also allows for greater control over the design and functionality of the app, which can help to differentiate a business from its competitors.

Tinloof can offer support with both custom and public Shopify apps. We also have experience in mobile app development and web application development, both of which can help to tailor the app to the specific needs of a business.

How we work


We use Slack or Discord to make communication as fast and easy as possible.

Transparent and simple task management

From day 1, we set up a Notion page with a roadmap that includes the main milestones, and a sprints board to track our day-to-day tasks.

We work in bi-weekly sprints in order to efficiently plan, prioritize, and deliver small chunks of work on a regular basis, allowing us to make progress on a project in an iterative and agile manner. This helps us to stay focused and accountable and means that we can quickly adapt to changes or pivot in response to feedback.

Working in bi-weekly sprints also allows us to continuously gather and incorporate user feedback, which helps us to create more user-centered and valuable products.

Task management with Notion


We work in iterations and ask for feedback as soon as we make progress. These small feedback iterations make it easy for everyone to be aligned and progress faster.

Working with Tinloof has been an absolute pleasure. We needed to localize our entire e-commerce site and they have done an outstanding job from start to finish. The final product is very easy to use and our whole team can utilize the backend with very little training. I would like to give a shout-out to Seif, who was incredible through the whole process. He was very professional and he has a huge amount of knowledge. I would 100% recommend and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Working with Tinloof has been an excellent experience. Seif is deeply knowledgable about all things Next.js and Sanity, communication was clear, delivery was punctual and exceeded expectations.

Moreover, Seif and Omar were extremely friendly and personable people.I would highly recommend Tinloof for any web development projects.
