We interviewed the mobile app development company Dew Solutions back in May 2019, so we wanted to update their information with a new Follow Up interview here on AppFutura's blog.
Gaurav Jain, Director & COO at Dew Solutions, did his B.Tech from IIT Kanpu. He started his career with a startup in 2002 which was probably not the best time to start someone’s career given the looming recession. Over a period of time, he worked in different companies at all levels and spent a few years in the USA. He had been a technologist from the start of his career and he wanted to embrace technology at all levels and in all forms. Gaurav Jain always believed that technology can have a huge impact on our day to day lives as the whole world is already witnessing currently.
Dew Solutions Pvt Ltd has more than 350 employees. The app development company was founded in 2010 by Dhiraj Chauhan, Gaurav Jain, Ramraj Chauhan, and Vivek Jain. Its location is Gurgaon, India.
Your last interview was published in 2019. What great apps have you been working on since then and what are your biggest plans for 2020?
We have come up with lots of solutions over the last few years. We have dug deeper into the eLearning space and come up with an end to end solutions for clients across the globe. Supply chain and eCommerce is another focus area where we have developed quite a lot of solutions.
Also, off late during this COVID crisis, we have developed a lot of app-based solutions to help the government and the people. Our team developed the contact tracing app along with an app for strict home quarantine compliance, food tracing app, an app to help create jobs for blue-collar labor, and many more.
If you had to choose one category, what kind of app you think is your mobile app development company’s specialty?
Though we are domain agnostic and work for almost every other domain, eLearning and eCommerce Apps have been a huge focus area for us where we have done the majority of the work. Some notable apps in this space our teams have developed include TataCliq, TataCliq Luxury, Budbeed, SpeedLabs.
Which app has been the biggest challenge for your app development company?
Every problem is unique and hence every app has its own challenges to develop. The contact tracing app we developed was a bigger challenge due to the speed at which it was supposed to be developed, the deep native technologies that it needed to explore, and the kind of finesse is required to be able to serve the
The last time we spoke, you said the iPhone 6/6S were the best devices in the market. A lot has happened since then. What would you answer now
We continue to develop apps for Android and iPhones. Lots of devices have emerged in the last few years and it is challenging to support such a vast range of devices with absolute precision. In 2020, I believe iPhone XS Max, OnePlus 7T and Google Pixel seems to be doing quite well.
What do you think will be the biggest smartphone release in 2020 and why?
Oneplus Z can be a big release for 2020 given the price it is planned to be launched at with loads of features and best in the class processor.
Besides smartphones, what mobile device do you think is worth having first?
I believe today’s world is driven and conquered by smartphones. Yes, one should start with a low-cost one to have a basic understanding before investing in real costly and high-end ones.
What do you think mobile devices will be able to do in the future that they don't do now?
I just wish mobile devices are able to read the human brain one day and can take signals directly to perform an action on their behalf :)
What smartphone feature could you not live without?
I believe the ability to access millions of apps on the fly is something that makes a smartphone irresistible.
Is your mobile app development team adapting to the new technologies and devices coming along?
Our teams have been adapting to changing technologies quite fast and quite well. Earlier we were developing IOS apps in objective C and Android ones in Java. With the advent of more object-oriented and robust technologies, we have moved to develop IOS apps on Swift and Android on Kotlin mostly with MVVM pattern which has really helped reduce development time and added more scalability and robustness to the products we develop for our clients.
What advice would you give to anyone with an app idea who didn't know how to get started?
I would recommend anyone with an idea in mind should first validate it by exploring the competition, doing some market research and analysis, and then understanding the complexities around the idea. Also, they should try to understand why people would use their solution over a competitor’s and if they find convincing answers to these questions, they should definitely pursue the idea if they have the financial support to execute the same.
