After 2 years as a software developer he planned to open his own venture in 2009: Pinkhand Technologies Pvt. Ltd. A new journey of his life started with a team of 4 working on technologies like Asp.net and MVC.

Here’s what Ankit Patial has to say about his mobile app development company and the mobile world:

What does your mobile app development company do?

Pinkhand Technologies works on both cross and native platform applictaion development and we have a great team of developers who work on: xamarin, react-native, objective-C, Swift, Android, SDK... We have expertise in developing web services in Node.js and its different frameworks like Happy.js and Express.js that make us different from other applictaion developers as they are still stuck to PHP for the development of an API.

What clients have you worked for?

  • Primarius Technologies
  • VSL-PRO
  • Selcomm Softwares
  • Psykologbasen
  • Claymind

If you had to choose one category, what kind of app do you think is Pink Hand Technologies' specialty?

We are specialized in social networking apps that include real time chat, live streaming etc.

What is the average budget of the mobile apps you develop?

The average budget is around $5,000-$7,000, including the back-end.

Do you develop all mobile apps in-house or do you outsource some parts of the process?

No, we haven't outsourced any applictaion as we have differnet sets of the team who have their defined roles:

  • Business Analyst: wireframing and mockups creation
  • Front-end developer: UI/UX cretaion
  • Back-end Developer: API and web services creation
  • Native app developers: mobile applictaion development

Which would you say are the best mobile apps that your company has developed and why?

Till now the best mobile apps are:

Insight for PTMS: Insight automatically syncs with PTMS to give tax professionals the metrics and access they needs to successfully manage their property taxes anytime, from anyplace. The app includes a Calendar and proactive alerts for property tax deadlines, remote approvals for tax returns and payments and KPIs and analytics

High Low Glitter: Introducing a meaningful way to share your day with the people who matter most. If big social networking sites are cyber cocktail parties, High Low Glitter is cyber family dinner: small, private, real..

Delight your connections, especially moms, when you share real moments –the ups and downs– from your day, the app has a limited number of connections (7) fosters quality sharing over quantity and a one-to-one privacy (posts are only visible to your connections).

Do you prefer to build mobile apps with native, hybrid or web languages?

We are open to any sort of challenges so wether its for native/hybrid we are ready for the mobile app project as we have proven skills in Xamrin, React-Native and Native iOS development (Objective-C and Android).

Let’s focus on iOS and Android mobile app development. Which are the Pros and Cons of each platform?

iOS pros: mobile apps are simple and fast to run compared to other operating systems and application types, such including web or cross-platform applications. Native iOS apps take full use of hardware and internal functions of the devices

iOS cons: it is a closed source, Mac OS X is needed to develop applications; they can not be established on any other OS.

Android pros: quicker to release/patch because there is no 'acceptance' gate forced on you, ideal for a part-formed product, i.e. the Minimum Viable Product or MVP

Android cons: fragmented OS, lots of users will be on a range of OS versions (you can choose to not support older OS/Devices).

Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?

According to me the hybrid applications will have a greater impact so React-native will be the best technology for the development of the application.

Which device is the best in the market right now?

Andoroid is the best option as it's cheaper and easier to get with better user friendly environments.

And which device do you feel more comfortable developing an app for?

As I am a technical guy, I am happy to develop for both and that too using Xamarin and React-Native.

Why is AppFutura useful to you?

This platform can provide me better opportunities and trust worthy clients so it will be great for me to get started and fetch the best out of it.
