Some questions are eternal. “Is there God?”, “Does he/she love me?” and, surely, “How can I find a decent mobile app development company in Kochi to build my app?”
People are posting similar questions on Quora, dedicated forums, and social media.
Still, finding the right mobile app development company appears to remain a puzzle as the question is consistently asked. According to recent statistics, the number of mobile phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion in 2017. As many marketers say, mobile is already dominating the desktop and its influence is spreading across the globe like wildfire.
As a mobile app developer or someone looking to develop a mobile app; having great ideas about creating a new app is one thing, but getting a great mobile app development company is another matter. When it comes to Android application development, care has to be taken to avoid falling into the wrong hands. This is because, there are presently hundreds of app development companies that claim to be the best and render great services, but end up falling below expectations. This is unacceptable with Android devices being in high demand by users.
It might seem like a very simple thing; finding a good mobile app development company, but it is not. But then, it helps if you are a mobile app developer or a tech-savvy individual that knows what you are doing, and what type of app you want to develop exactly.
Once you express your desire as an app developer to create a new app, expect several app development companies to line themselves up and bombard you with proposals, asking to develop your app. However, it is best not to panic or be confused when this happens. You have to consider a lot of things before taking any of them up on their offer. This is the time to strategically and systematically look at some factors because in the end your time, energy, and money will be at stake.
Now, there are certain things that are considered important to look out for, before choosing a mobile app development company in Kochi. These include, but are not limited to;
This should be the first factor to look out for. You could do this by getting the names of good companies from your research and then narrow them down to one by checking out certain things about all of them. Reviews from previous clients would be online, which you could look at in addition to how much they have been rated by the reviewers. Also, find out the kind of services they render, to know if they are going to be able to do what you want. This is not something that should be done in a hurry. Be sure to find out how positive these reviews and ratings are before you consider any company.
Again, a good mobile app development company should know that making a great app is not enough. The app has to look interesting and catchy too.
- Period Of Time In Business
This is important too because it is said that practice makes perfect. So, in other words, the longer a mobile app development company has been in existence, the better they should have become in developing apps for clients. This does not go for every company though, that is why you have to check their ratings too, no matter how long they have been around for. Evaluate from every angle. The longer a mobile app development company has been around, the likelier it is that they would know what app works on what app store and what does not.
- Innovative Technology
It is the uniqueness of an app that would make it stand out from the million others in app stores. If you launch an app that is pretty much the same with others already in the stores, people would not be curious enough to check it out, as there have already been others like it. So, despite the fact that you have a brilliant plan for your app and have everything worked out, a good mobile app development company should be able to turn your beautiful app idea into something better and if possible, out of the box. That is, a good company should not be basic with its app concepts. If your app is different, you will get back your money’s worth in the end.
- Speed Of Delivery
You want your app to be ready as soon as possible, but a lot of companies can not deliver quickly and efficiently. So, you have to choose one that does both. It would be unwise to employ the services of a company that would develop your app in record time, but the quality would be low. A great app development company should not only work with time but should guarantee a decent, if not great turnaround and should have all the latest domains that it works with.
- Client Focused
A good company should be more interested in how to make the best out of your idea and not how much you are going to pay them. You have to check if the company you are interested in, places value on their clients, or just want to do the job and move on to the next customer. If you do not get the required support from the app company you employ, a lot of things could go wrong, and they would not bother, as long as they have developed your app.
But if it is a company that has the best interests of their clients at heart, they would have no problem assisting with issues that come up after your app has been developed. Also, a company that thinks about its client would, in turn, become better from listening to opinions and applying them to their work. A company that sticks with their clients through each evolution of any app they develop and does not abandon them after first development is one to consider.
- Get Your Money’s Worth
Some companies demand higher pay, but that does not make them the best around. If the company you are looking to hire does not offer solutions in addition to giving you an app that is different, then you should not think of patronizing them.
Let’s pretend you have found the right company to implement your project. Now it is time to pay attention to the technical details of your app; this is important for both the development company and you. You should have a clear picture in your head of what you will be getting and explain this so your partner will be aware of each and every technical aspect to implement in your app.
Make a detailed list so that no feature will be forgotten during the development stage. Do you plan to build a prototype? What platforms do you want your app to run on? Is your mobile application going to be compatible with e-commerce engines, internal CMS, and other systems? Any detailed information is your best friend at this stage. This means that all the specs you intend to have for your app must be procured. So the basic questions for this part are:
- Describe the mobile application concept.
- What are the main business goals the application should help to reach?
- What platforms do you want your app to run on? (IOS / Android, IOS – iPhone, OS – iPad, Android smartphone, Android tablet).
- Describe your target audience.
- What is the concept behind the application? Do you have any creative/design specifications for the app?
- List the sections and features that will be included.
- Will the app be integrated with social media? List all social media channels you want your mobile app to interact with.
- Will the app require data caching for offline work?
Brainstorm with each department in your company to come up with needs and wants that can help you create the perfect app, the first time.
When you are looking to pay an Mobile app development company in Kochi to develop your app, look at how well they treat their clients from customer reviews; get one that is goal-oriented and not just interested in your money; the company should have a wealth of experience and should be able to create a revenue-generating app for their clients.
