Top Things to Consider When Selecting a Mobile App Developers

Top Things to Consider When Selecting a Mobile App Developers
2/27/2019
Your company is thinking about creating an app, you’ll probably require the assistance of a mobile app development professional who has the experience and skills to successfully complete the project.

Finding and hiring a highly skilled individual or team who has the ability to understand your needs and produce a great final product is crucial, especially if your app needs to be finished within a certain time-frame and budget. Here are the top things to consider when selecting mobile app developers:

Check Out Their Portfolio

One of the best ways that you can learn more about an individual developer or team is by checking out their portfolio. What type of apps has the developer produced in the past? Are they similar to the type of app that you would like to have developed? It’s also a good idea to actually download any apps that have been created and see how they function.

Contact Recent Clients

Another way to see if a prospective developer is the right choice for your project is by contacting recent clients. In some cases, you may be unsure if a developer actually worked on a specific app. By contacting a previous client, you can verify important factors of the development process. Ask questions to make sure if the developer was able to meet deadlines and turn concepts into reality.

Developing For Different Platforms

One aspect that you will need to consider is if you are going to build your app for just one or multiple platforms. If you’re going to create a final product for both iOS and Android users, it’s probably going to be easier to work with a developer that has the ability to create your app on both platforms. This eliminates the hassle of having to work with two separate developers, which will also be less costly and better for your budget.

Specific Customization

Will your project require customization that’s not usually seen on most apps? Before diving deep into a project, you want to make sure that the mobile app development team that you hire has the skills to complete any customization that you may have. You definitely don’t want to get halfway into a project and find out that there’s a challenge in completing specific customization.

Availability

If you have a specific timeline in which you need to have your app developed, it’s important to make sure that your potential mobile app development team has the appropriate amount of time to focus on your project. Be sure to have them create a timeline for each stage of your project. These phases might include an initial review, changes to be made, another review and a date for delivery, which are all dependent on the complexity of your project.

Involvement

Your input will play a key role in the outcome of your app. Find out the type of involvement that your prospective mobile app developers will need from you. This may involve multiple phases where you provide input and then check to see if the current prototype needs any changes. This process continues until your app has been developed.

Maintenance

Another factor that comes into play after developing your app is maintenance. There may come a time when the app needs to be upgraded. Make sure that you clarify your relationship with the developer on how maintenance is going to be handled. Are they going to charge by the hour or by the job?

Don’t Focus Solely On Price

While it’s smart to bargain hunt when you’re searching for a developer, using the cheapest one may not be the best choice. When you combine other factors into your final decision, you’ll probably find that you don’t want to hire a developer who has the lowest bid for the job. Quality, skills, communication and ability to successfully complete your requests are just as important as price, maybe more so.

Communication Schedule

In some cases, you’ll be working with offshore mobile app developers. With thousands of miles between you, setting up a way to communicate is going to be important. By having a weekly schedule or speaking with them a few times a week, it will increase the probability of success for your project. Communication will play a key role in the development of your app. Before making a final decision on who you hire, make sure that you can clearly communicate with them.
