General Information


Head Office



Carbyn is an online app operating system, bringing the same type of full App experience we all love on iOS but doing it in the browser meaning accessible by everyone on all devices; phones, tablets, and desktops new and old. Now everyone can get the apps they love!

We believe human computer interaction is increasingly App-focused, meaning people launch apps first and then do what they want instead of going through a file system. It’s what those with an iPhone/iPad or Android device enjoy today but still out of reach for the majority of people. With Carbyn, as long as you can get online and open a browser you login to your full blown App-focused OS. It means buying the cheapest tablet that gets you online so that you can get everything you want through your browser. It means no more platform lock-in. It means getting what you want, on any device, anytime.
