After over a year, we got back in touch with Chandrakant Agrawal, CEO of Appsquadz. The company has changed its name since then, here you’ll find some news about one of the top mobile app development companies in India.
Your last interview was published in 2015. The company changed the name from Fourth Screen Labs to AppSquadz Technologies Pvt Ltd. Why?
We wanted to redefine the Services and Focus Area of our company as we were entitled to deliver IT application design and development services, so we rebranded and redefined ourselves by transforming Fourth Screen Labs into AppSquadz Technologies Pvt Ltd.
What great apps has your mobile app development company been working on since then and what are your biggest plans for next year?
We have worked on a number of projects and accomplished all our targets with flying colors, ’til now we have entrenched a benchmark of building more than 350+ apps across different verticals. We are currently working on money saving and some educational apps that would be seen catering educational ventures at large in India. We are looking forward towards strengthening our business portfolio in the industry by building some top-notch apps.
If you had to choose one category, what kind of app you think is AppSquadz’s specialty?
As far as specialty is concerned, our company has crafted apps almost in every vertical and every app has its worth in the industry, but we have mastered ourselves in making apps that caters travel and tourism.
Do you prefer to work with native language, hybrid or web development?
We always prefer to create the apps in Native platform because Native apps mean quality and their performance wise is very high.
Which app has been the biggest challenge for AppSquadz Technologies company?
AppSquadz Technologies Pvt. Ltd. has designed and developed more than 350+ Applications within the life span and to be very honest every application itself is a very big challenge to do as we don’t consider any mobile application on the basis of its difficulty level but we consider it on the basis of requirements finalized or not.
TaxiForSure application development was among the ones which we designed and developed initially so there were some minute things to be taken care of which were the following:
- Real Time Tracking- Tracking accurately where the driver or the passenger are physically located within building on street
- Payment Transactions of passengers to the account of TFS then transferring monthly payments to passengers
- Drivers and Passengers Analytics, Taxi Management, Assignment
Last time we spoke, you said that iPhone 6 was the best device on the market. A lot has happened since then. What would you say is the best now?
As the market is upgrading rapidly all across the world and as we see Apple has again come with another miraculous product (iPhone 6) that’s giving stiff competition to its rivalries. Moreover, to maintain its clout, the android is all set as well, with another avatar (version) Marshmallow 6.0 to lure its customers.
What do you think will be the biggest release in 2016 and why?
Marshmallow 6.0 would probably be the biggest release in 2016 as no other platform is there to give competition to Android, the largest platform in the mobility.
Besides smartphones, what mobile device do you think is worth having first?
There are a number of mobile technologies or products that are committed to give you world class luxury in one go, and iWatch from Apple is one of them. This wearable device has come with a number of features that facilitates the maintenance and management of your health and time.
What do you think mobile devices will be able to do in the future that they don’t do now?
The days where mobile was used to be just a communication device are gone. Keeping the utmost pace of mobility sector, we can expect a lot more from our mobile devices to do in the upcoming days, prominently in real estate and domestic production. These sectors are yet to be fueled with mobility to get the pace.
What smartphone feature could you not live without?
Every feature of a smartphone has become the most integral part of our lifestyle, but the chat feature that enables people to remain connected with each other seems to be the most promising one. One can scarcely imagine his life without connecting with his loved ones.
Is Appsquadz adapting to the new technologies and devices coming along?
Yes, of course we have been adapting new technologies and devices to upgrade ourselves.
This enables us to be in the race of this steadily growing economy. Currently we have successfully completed two of our major projects: one is from the medical portfolio named Max Lapsurg, which enables you to book appointment with the doctors of Max Healthcare Services; and the other is from the News Segment in the African Countries where people will have the instant access to the News feed by the app called Buzz.
