About Appva

50 000 daily users keep us dedicated.

Our mission is to create simple, intuitive user interfaces in an accessible and stable environment.

The idea of a mobile and digital solution for the signing of prescribed actions was born in Sweden in 2011. For eight months, requirements and requests were collected from various user groups. In December 2012, the first signing was done at the municipal nursing care provider, Tre Stiftelser, in Sweden.
