Tell us a little bit about your previous work:
Right from childhood, I had a keen interest in coding and operating computers. As time went by, my inquisitiveness towards technology made me complete a Masters Degree in Computer Applications. I also become a certified project manager from PMI UK. After that, I established my own company in 2003. Till then, I have played multiple roles to drive my business forward. Currently, I’m focusing on strengthening our company linkages with clients spread in the United States, Australia, Asia, South Africa, Japan & the Middle East.
What does your mobile app development company do?
A3logics is a global IT consulting and product engineering services company, delivering best-in-class services and helping worldwide clients to drive business efficiencies. We have also earned a reputation for being the best web and mobile app development company in the USA. We make the best use of technologies like Flutter, React Native, Xamrin, Swift, Kotlin, Vue, Node, & Angular JS, Django, etc.
Over the years we have provided cutting-edge technology solutions across multiple industry verticals, including Healthcare, Transportation, E-commerce, Retail, Banking, HR, and more.
The tech-geeks associated with us believe in developing unique and innovative solutions for our clients. Each product that we deploy is feature-ladened and can easily be identified with the business.
What makes us stand out from our competitors is the perfect blend of years of experience and enthusiasm and risk-taking capabilities of newbies. The team is never scared to experiment and ensures each product holds an identity of itself and of the organization. With almost two decades into operations, we have successfully grown to be the most popular and innovative solution providers around the world.
What clients have you worked for?
We have been in the business for almost seventeen years now. Our clientele includes startups, medium-scale businesses, and large enterprises from around the world. You can check our products and our clients from the portfolio page.
If you had to choose one category, what kind of app do you think is your mobile app development company’s specialty?
I don’t want to confine myself to any particular domain. Instead, I would like my organization to be known as the most trusted mobile app development company across the globe. We have walked over two decades delivering our clients some of the best mobile app solutions in their respective domains. Although with the popularity of on-demand mobile apps we have excelled ourselves in providing customized mobile applications that can help our clients grow their business better.
What is the average budget of the mobile apps you develop?
Our budget for any app project depends on the requirements of the clients. Depending on the features and functionalities to be included the budget can range from $20k to $50k and above.
Do you develop all mobile apps in-house or do you outsource some parts of the process?
In the initial days, we had to outsource some bits of our work. But it reflected a setback to the quality and client service. With time, we scaled up to ensure that each aspect of our mobile and web app development services are covered in-house. Now, we have an in-house team for the development process. From ideation to after support every aspect is taken care of by the team itself. Moreover, with the growing market, it is easier to upgrade your in-house team with new skills than to search for someone reliable in the market.
The best part of letting your in-house team take care of the development is design, tech, marketing, and more elements are handled by a team that understands each other’s working pattern and has clear communication. Thus, the product on the table is of the highest quality and meets industry standards. Any pitfalls can be worked on easily without any compromises with the organization’s goodwill.
We did have our part of the struggle when we were scaling up and adding various elements to the in-house team. But the phase has passed and we are proud to provide the best web and mobile app development services.
Which would you say are the best mobile apps that your company has developed and why?
We have worked on some of the most popular quiz mobile apps, chatbots, fitness apps, transportation apps, banking apps, etc. My favorite is our HCM solution app, Teemwurk, and Chat app called “Chatstasy.” These are quite popular among our clients.
When building TeemWurk app, we took care of all the minute details that an employee and an employer needs. We had several inputs from the target audience and appreciate the efforts they’ve taken to review the product provide us their valuable insights.
Chatstasy helped us push our limits. This was interesting to work on. The team gathered and studied various applications and picked the best features and modified them to suit everyone’s needs.
Do you prefer to build mobile apps with native, hybrid, or web languages?
We have worked on each of the languages depending on client requirements and the product functionalities to be included. Each of these has its parts of pros and cons. When I am at ease to choose the language myself I stick to web development languages.
Another reason why I love web development languages is the space it provides. WDLs let you make the best of your creativity and experiment with what comes on the screen. We have delivered some really impressive projects that are aesthetically pleasing and high performing.
Let’s focus on iOS and Android mobile app development. Which are the Pros and Cons of each platform?
Well, none of these get a clear win. Both the platforms are quite interesting to work on with some great features to offer.
iOS is more professional and has higher standards thus making it a little complicated to work on. Although the market is expanding and iOS is also seeing growth in the sense that more businesses opt for iOS app development, still Android gets an edge here. The platform is quite accommodating and offers ease of development and adding interesting features to client products easily.
If I talk about my business, most of our products are cross-platform and thus single code set is used for both platforms.
Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?
Well, I believe the journey would be a tough one. With cross-platform mobile app development becoming popular day by day, I believe iOS and Android both have a promising future. A native app developer can better define what the future has. I believe the journey would be similar to a roller coaster ride not just in the next five years but for the decade.
Which device is the best in the market right now?
I believe smartphones are the most popular devices in the market today. As time has evolved, smartphones have gained popularity and so does mobile applications. As technology has seeped into our daily lives, we can manage our businesses and day-to-day activities over the phone.
And which device do you feel more comfortable developing an app for?
We are more comfortable developing apps for mobile phones and tablets. We have been in the business for such a long time that we are comfortable with development for various devices. But mobile app development gets an upper hand over web app development. It lets us explore more creative and provide solutions that are interesting, innovative, and unique.
Why is AppFutura useful to you?
AppFutura has let us showcase our business and reach our potential clients with ease. It has helped some of our leads reach our team and turn to our loyal clients. We are very hopeful that in the future too the website would let us connect with more potential leads and expand our business better.
