Choosing A Mobile App Development Company
Written by Amy Rehan

In this modern age of technology, any firm or organization that wants to get ahead of the pack and take its business to new heights, wants more than a run-of-the-mill website. As more and more people are becoming mobile-centered, businesses need to target their customers via mobile apps.

Building a mobile app is an excellent business decision - but it's not something to be tackled in-house. There are plenty of mobile development companies out there, so what how can potential customers choose between them. I have written this advice from the point of view of a business that want to find a team to build its killer-app. But turn the tables and you'll find advice as to how to become the ideal development partner.

Portfolio

Before you hire a mobile development company, you need to view its portfolio closely. If you want to know whether they are the right fit for your company or not, then the best way of doing that is to take a look at recent projects. Ask them about the apps they have created in the past during the discussion so you can gauge their capabilities. Also, ask them how long it usually takes them to deliver their projects and can they improve the user experience after a test run. Getting answers to all these things can help you decide whether they will be the right choice for your business or not.

Platform Compatibility

Before reaching out to a company, you need to decide on which OS you want your app to run on. Once you have decided on the platform, you need to choose a company that is an expert in creating apps for that OS. While apps created for Android may behave in the same way as those designed for Apple phones, they call for very different programming expertise. So make sure you go with a company that has good experience in making apps for your selected platform. If you want your app to run on both iOS and Android and in a desktop enviroment, you should go for a web and mobile development company offering both services. Going for separate companies will not only be expensive, but it will cost you extra time as well.

Check Client & User Reviews

Before finalizing a company, you can get a second opinion about them via their clients or mobile app users. You can find client reviews on their website and social media pages for most mobile app development companies. Reading these reviews will give you good information about the quality of their service and will help you decide whether you should go with them or not. Apart from that, you can read the user reviews on the apps they have created. If the users seem happy with the app experience, then it is a good sign, but if they are constantly complaining about the bugs and lags, it means that the company is not reliable. Comparing reviews of all these companies can help you choose the perfect fit for your company.

Maintenance Policy 

Your relationship with the app development company will not end as soon as they have delivered the product. With time you will have to update your app, and there will be small bugs and glitches that will need experts’ attention. So it is crucial for you to ask the company about their maintenance policy before you bring them on board. Ask them how they handle bugs and what they will charge for every update. Also, ask if they will be charging a fee for basic support services. Inquiring about these things will help you understand whether you can rely on them after the launch or not.
