App Developers

Mobile apps have taken over our lives from increasing productivity to communicating and playing mobile games. App developers are growing in importance for small businesses who are looking for a new revenue stream and to improve their customer's user experience.

What is an app developer?

An app developer is a programmer who specialises in developing apps for mobile platforms such as Android, iOS or Windows. They can be freelancers or work under app development companies. App development is not just for mobile phones, but many mobile devices such as tablets, smart watches and home devices.

What is the difference between an app developer and web developer?

The difference between an app developer and web developer is the product they create. App developers are experts in building mobile apps while web developers are experts in building websites. However, their skills are not exclusive to each other and can intersect. Hire…

Which is better, Android app development or iOS development?

The better platform depends on which has more of your target market. It is best to develop an Android and iOS mobile app because these two platforms control the majority of mobile devices. Rather than betting on one, many small businesses make it top priority to do both.

Who is app development for?

App development is for businesses who offer their products and services on mobile devices. Building a mobile app takes a special skillset and knowledge, so it's best to hire an experienced app developer or company rather than using a software or web developer.

How to hire the best app developers for your business?

  • Hire developers with a keen interest: Although experience counts, it's equally important to hire app developers who are interested to learn about your industry and business so they can tailor their solutions.
  • Test their apps: Testing out several of their previous apps is a good place to start to understand what they can deliver
  • Read reviews: Read any online reviews, reach out to previous customers or look at what awards they have won for app development.
  • Compare their resources: Are they outsourcing most of the development work overseas? Or do they have a team of capable developers in-house?
  • Weigh in their skill sets: Aside from app development, look at their user experience design and skills.
  • Approach a few: Build a shortlist of candidates and talk or spend time with them to understand their process, mindset and team.
  • Find transparency and integrity: Look for transparent processes, fair contracts and professionalism in an app development company.
  • Ask about the IP: Make sure your business owns the intellectual property rights and any assets. This should be spelled out clearly before signing on the dotted line.
  • Consider maintenance costs: It's not just the cost to build an app you should worry about. An app will have bugs or need maintenance and updates, so ensure you have it on contract.
