Mobile App Development Scam and Fraud company of people. They take your money, lie, and give you nothing for what you paid.  Take money and run, its a ponzi type scheme and fraud. is their company name now and Travis James is one of the key people that scam you. They keep changing the company name to run and hide from people trying to sue and get money back.

They claim to be mobile app programmers that will build you a mobile app.  They plan dates and give you a quote, promise you a great app, and collect money up front.  Then they lie during the development process to keep you paying them and telling you everything is going good and the app is almost ready.  Then they don't finish by the dates promised and you don't get anything.  No refund, no app, no code, nothing.   These scammers took over $30,000 and we got nothing !

company was cloudmetal llc and now it thirdhat llc   Travis James is the partner in the scams

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Ex-Cloudmetal employee

AUTHOR: Ex Emp - ()

I am an ex-employee of cloudmetal and can verify the financial instability of the company. The development team worked for "sweat equity" in return for a promise of ownership of the company. We were promised ownership over and over again and that it would "happen soon". This promise was never fulfilled and we were never compensated for much of our work; this, in combination with the very recent discovery of the original ripoffreport against Cloudmetal, forced the entire development team to voluntarily leave Cloudmetal immediately.

Details and specifications delivered by customers were occluded to the development team by Mr. James (proof) and he never delivered development work that was promised to his team in order to complete projects (more proof) for his customers. I now personally believe there is credence to the other accusation(s) against Mr. James. 

I would strongly recommend not doing business with Mr. Travis James.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Thirdhat is no longer associated with Travis James or Cloudmetal, LLC

AUTHOR: T.Horn - (United States of America)

I work for Thirdhat software and just wanted to make it clear that Mr. James was briefly associated with Thirdhat, but that for reasons I can't get into that arrangement did not work out.  I assure you that any work or contracts done under Thirdhat were honored and completed to the satisfaction of all parties.  If you had a negative experience with Mr. James or his company Cloudmetal, LLC, I apologize.  But I would respectfully ask that you please remove the link and mention of Thirdhat Software.  Travis James has a website at and linking to that website in this matter is more appropriate.
