Alex Kom is Senior Account and Project Manager at Belitsoft. The company, founded in 2004 by Vladimir Tursin and Alexander Beresnyakov, is located in Belarus, Minsk, and employs more than 120 people. Here’s what Alex had to say about his company and the mobile world:

What do you do?

Our company specializes in software development process on different kind of platforms such as PHP Development, Microsoft Technologies Development, Android or iOS, Java, Ruby on Rails, C++, etc.

Speaking about mobile development we have 5 native iOS, 3 native Android developers, 2 Windows Phone specialists who are ready to develop almost any complexity mobile application. Additionally, we have Meteor JS, PhoneGap, Ionic specialists to create Cross-platform Hybrid mobile applications. We offer the best way to analyze your service and in the end develop your product according to your deadline.

Which would you say are the best apps you have developed and why?

I cannot say that we only focus on “apps”… applications are only the tip of the iceberg. Our activity and overall commitment is connected with complex ERP, CRM, EDM systems, ecommerce websites, etc. Of course our clients are always interested in mobile applications too, especially when we talk about small local shops or restaurants looking for applications, based on iOS, Android or Windows Phone. That allows users to make orders from such places using smartphones or tablets.

Which apps would you have loved to develop and why?

There are no restrictions when we talk about our clients wishes. We do not regret any application development. We continue moving forward no matter what… and we always consider our past mistakes.

Which are the 5 apps you use the most on a daily basis?

I’m fond of testing new applications on Android. Most of these apps are used for time management, health activity and so on. But here is my top 5:

  • Mi Fit – allows me to track my steps, my weight and wake me in fast sleep phase.
  • DriverNotes – helps me to keep my car running costs into one place. And what is important for me is synchronization between your gadgets, so you will never lose your data.
  • Google Keep – keeps my notes on stickers and allows me to customize them.
  • myMail – I found this as an alternative to Gmail Android client. It’s very light, fast and easy to use.
  • Google Drive – as I love to keep my documents in cloud storage, I’m using Google Drive on a daily basis. You don’t even need to use Microsoft Office instead.

Which mobile device is the best in the market right now?

iPhone still remains very popular in comparison to any other mobile device. You all know the number of sales worldwide after a new release. But don’t forget about the Chinese market and their smartphones, such as Xiaomi, Meizu and Huawei.

I cannot assert that any of these devices is the best, as they have their own advantages and disadvantages. In my humble opinion you don’t need to spend hundreds of bucks to receive “5 inch screen” for example because almost any mobile manufacturer can offer this. So it really depends.

What kind of device/platform will be the next big thing?

AngularJS will become next big thing very soon… Have a look at this Google Trends graph:


As you can see AngularJS request in Google is very popular in comparison with other development platforms and I’m sure that this growth will continue in 2016. The popularity of AngularJS is based on its features and main developers from Google. It makes software developers’ life much easier.
