What clients have you worked for?

We are working for almost every domain including Healthcare, Automotive, Banking, Financial Markets, Insurance, Food Delivery, Social Networking platforms, Taxi Services, Beauty and Fitness, Retail, Fantasy Leagues and Gaming and much more.

If you had to choose one category, what kind of app do you think is your mobile app development company’s specialty?

As a mobile app development company our specialty lies in developing apps for startups.

For example, Purposs, an app that serves as a hyperlocal marketplace for anyone, anywhere to provide a professional service to anyone nearby has grown into a hub of micro-service providers and buyers.

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

$15,000 USD.

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

We work on an offshore development model with no cons. The pros are:

We deliver projects at a comparatively lower cost because we have an in-house development team that eliminates outsourcing costs.

Our Project Managers dot the globe, they bring a native understanding to all projects undertaken.

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

Loyakk, because it is a free app that brings people together through an instant mobile community based on an individual’s location and shared experiences. It fosters community engagement on a micro level and brings together the physical with the digital. All one has to do is download it and start ‘yakking’ aka interacting with their community around.

Purposs, because it enables people to sell their services at a micro level without any constraint creating a hyperlocal marketplace right on your mobile phone.

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

This depends upon the nature of the application. We recommend Native for apps that require high-end user experience and are more transactional in nature, have a large user base on one device. For e.g. physicians with iPads and apps that require extensive OS functions when offline.

We recommend Cross Platform for simpler apps that are more informative in nature and have offline usage. Also for multiple device kinds distributed across key users. It works well for a number of enterprise applications that do not require heavy device functions.

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

iOS Pros

  • Users tend to have higher income
  • Users are willing to spend more time and money on apps
  • App development time is significantly shorter
  • More cost effective in terms of time and capital resources needed for app development
  • You get 70% of the sales revenue made by your app on the App Store
  • Apple has exclusive rights for producing iPhones and iPads ensuring top notch product quality
  • Enfores restrictive policies, i.e. originality of design and potential legal liabilities

iOS Cons

  • Caters mostly to US and European markets
  • iPhones and other iDevices offer quite a limited range of choices
  • Apps can be developed on a Mac alone
  • Requires subscription to Apple’s membership program
  • Usually takes from several days to weeks for the App Store to approve an app

Android Pros

  • Android’s current global platform share is larger than iOS
  • Phone and tablets come in many sizes
  • Apps can be developed on a Windows, Linux or Mac
  • Uses Java, the programming language most commonly used in app development
  • Allows development of an app without any subscription
  • Only takes a couple of hours for an app to go live and be available for download
  • You get 70% of the sales revenue made by your app on the app store

Android Cons

  • Users typically belong to lower income brackets with more practical spending habits
  • Multiple smartphone vendors are running the Android OS
  • Generally takes longer to develop and test an app because of the platform’s fragmented system
  • Publishing policies are less restrictive leading to apps with compromised quality standards
  • Costlier to develop

Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?

iOS definitely, as it’s on the path to a steady evolution within the next 5 years. Apple is going to continue with its trademark way of bringing in invisible, subtle and slow technology transitions. It will do so whenever the situation is ripe for introducing the respective changes.

iOS will continue to see changes behind the scene that will keep it fresh, relevant and in tune with the market rather than making life of app developers difficult, bringing down the momentum of the App Store and confusing the market by introducing a clean break.

Which device is the best in the market right now?

Apple iPhone X. And the reason behind this is that this device is a complete package without a second thought. It has drastically changed user expectations that the market had with the series. A full, edge-to-edge display, Face ID for unlocking, payments on device, Animoji, Portrait mode on the front camera and much more are attracting buyers likes bees to honey.

The iPhone X is also the first to get an OLED display, and the bigger screen means the end of the iconic round home button on the front. Instead Apple added hardware on top i.e. the infamous notch with a TrueDepth sensing camera or Infrared sensor to support its FaceID feature. Navigation is also phenomenally new on the iPhone X with the swiping up and down. Apple’s most innovative phone in the market till now is definitely the iPhone X.

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

We have experts for both iOS and Android app development which puts us at ease while developing apps for both. Our experts offer diversified mobile app development using various CMS platforms.
