About Michael Larkin

I've been working with Shopify for 6 years, and have developed public and private applications, worked on theme design and customization, and created advanced storefront functionality using Javascript, the Shopify API, and Liquid.

I developed FetchApp (http://fetchapp.com), the first Shopify app and still the most-used application for digital delivery.

I also published a book about app development in shopify: http://tinyurl.com/shopifybook

I've teamed up with the guys over at PRC Apps (http://www.prcapps.com/shopify-development) so that we can offer the full package -- setup, design, customization, development, and app work.

In addition, I'm available for high level best practices consulting for setting up a store, customizing a theme, or building a custom application.

Jesse and Brady were awesome! They were both very professional. The process of creating my website seemed to happen so quickly! They were thorough and easy to communicate with. They both took time to explain and teach me about my new website. I am super pleased with the results. I recommend PRC Applications without reservation.

Celebration Shirts 6 months ago

The team at Celebration Shirts is extremely happy with the work done by PRC Applications. Our web site now offers a better user experience with the custom ordering process they developed on our personalized shirt product. From initial strategy discussions to final implementation, the team at PRC Applications delivered excellent customer service and technical know-how. We will choose to work with them again in the future, and endorse them without reservation. Well done!

Yoga Coasters 8 months ago

We worked with Michael Larkin and Jesse Michel at PRC Applications on yogacoasters.com and it was a pleasant and productive experience. It's great to know that we can consult with them any time we run into a snag and get the issue resolve without fuss. It's positively empowering compared to the last service we were engaged with. I highly recommend them!
Nina Jackson, Yoga Coasters

These people, RULE. I was specifically helped by Jesse Michel, who was incredibly easy to work with, super fast and excellent to communicate with. All my requests were completed WAY faster than quoted from probably about 4 other companies, which in turn was way cheaper. Jesse also promised to, and followed through with completing several tasks that the other developers sort of said "no, that's sort of annoying and sort of impossible" to. Jesse also never left me hanging. The slew of developers I had to go through before I found these guys, would keep me on the hook, waste time having meetings with me and then WEEKS later decide they didn't have enough time to complete any of my requests OR not have a meeting with me at all and just quote randomly thinking I would totally believe they fully understood my requests without any discussion. I am not a developer, so there is no way I could be explaining everything correctly through email, especially the first time around. I can't believe how flakey and the opposite of thorough everyone else was. These guys were friendly, awesome, worth every penny and this review won't let me give me enough space to write everything I want to say! :)

Michael was a pleasure to work with. Professional, responsive and delivered great work. Would highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with their Shopify store.

Burt Foster Handmade Knives over 1 year ago

Working with Michael Larkin was wonderful.

I've had a website for years, and the Shopify platform was a badly-needed upgrade. I was reasonably comfortable with the templates and the Shopify experts helped on several occasions to answer questions. But I needed some customization to get the site to fit my needs and there was no way I would have been able to do what Michael did. He was able to give creative solutions and his response time was very fast. Doing most of the work myself and using him when I ran into things I wanted to customize along the way, I was able to have the site up and running in a week.

I enthusiastically recommend his work and I will be using him again in the near future as my site and my needs grow and change.

Jesse was incredibly helpful and quick to respond to my emails. I am incredibly happy with working with PRC apps. I know a bit about coding, but needed assistance on making an order form and they were able to do it in no time. I plan on contacting them again when I want to add new features to my store!

Choix about 2 years ago

Michael and his team are without a doubt the best set of developers I've ever worked with! From our initial call to review the scope of the project to some last-minute requests for changes to the site, Michael has been not only responsive but quick to understand our needs and find solutions that solve our problems. We brought a fairly complex project to Michael that many other Shopify developers told us couldn't be done, but Michael and his team not only developed an implementation that completely met our needs, they did so on budget and on time! I'll definitely be working with Michael and his team in the future.

Absolutely amazing. Delivered everything we needed and tweaks along the way until it was just perfect. Will definitely do more work with them

MorphCase over 2 years ago

Simply put, Jesse is PHENOMENAL!!!

After a long, frustrating and sleepless week of trying to integrate conversion tracking with CJ Affiliate (formerly Commission Junction), no matter what was recommended by Shopify and CJ Affiliate, nothing was working. I was wasting day after day with no solution in sight and I was at a complete loss. So, I decided to look at getting a Shopify Expert and found Michael Larkin. With the first email of my dilemma, Jesse blew me away and figured out the problem no one else could...in minutes!!!

Jesse has saved me so much time and money, he responds to my questions quickly and is incredibly knowledgeable in all the areas of development I need. My Shopify store is now efficient, productive and exactly what I want because of his expertise - I am beyond thrilled!

Jesse has gone above and beyond anything I expected. He is a lifesaver for me and I will continue to work with him from now on. I cannot recommend Jesse and Michael Larkin highly enough!!!

Intown Balcony over 2 years ago

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!! We worked with Jesse and he is totally awesome. We had a number of items that we needed addressed and Jesse took care of them all.
1. He is very timely in his responses.
2. He was really proactive in his problem solving. He was able to interpret what I was asking for and then offered solutions I hadn't even thought of.
3. He did what he said he'd do.
4. Pricing was very reasonable.
5. He allowed me to review and get back with him on my terms.
6. He was just great to work with and we look forward to working with Jesse at Michael Larkin again.

Sincerely,

Gavin Jones

Working with Michael, Jesse and co has been great - they've done particularly good job with the behaviour of our site, and helping us to work around some shopify limitations with smart hacks.

Michael is great to work with. We got clear and timely information. His program FetchApp is a nice solution for digital deliverables. Michael helped us to complete our project with his software and input and was also available to work on some parts of the website for a very reasonable fee.

Michael went above and beyond the entire duration of the project. We look forwad to working with him again in the near future. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND letting Michael work on your site.

Mike's FetchApp has been the backbone of our Shopify store for 3 1/2 years, delivering hundreds of thousands of digital downloads to happy customers around the world. When it came time for us to build a custom app to integrate with a 3rd-party reseller, I contacted Mike and he responded with a proposal that clearly outlined our needs and completed the app in a matter of days (& under budget)!

Mike responded promptly.to every email. His quote was right on. He showed a good understanding of what we wanted to do, and brought our attention some consequences we had not thought of. We will be working with him again.
