Top app development companies interview: IDAP

Alex Chernikov is the CEO of IDAP. The mobile app development company was founded in 2012 by himself and Anton Kovalev (COO) and Oleksandr Korin (CTO). The mobile app development company is located in Kyiv, Ukraine. The company employs between 50-100 IT professionals and app developers.

Let’s see what Alex Chernikov has to say about IDAP and the mobile app development world.

What does IDAP do?

IDAP is a full-cycled mobile and web app development company. We build native apps for Android, iOS as well as web. We don’t just develop apps, we produce efficient tech solutions. Our goal is to provide an effective way to solve your business process via a custom app.

What clients has IDAP worked for?

IDAP has been in the app development business since 2012. We work with everyone, from startups to enterprises regardless of the business niche.

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

We started as an iOS app development agency, but with the years to come, we have expanded our horizons. Today, we have full-stack app developers who work with iOS, Android, and web apps. But, still, iOS app development is our darling.

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

There is no clear answer. The budget depends on lots of things, not to mention, the complexity of the app, the set of features, the development time, backend integration technologies, the number of screens, etc. The mobile app development cost cannot be taken out of the blue. We build apps for any budget, starting from $10K and till the crack of doom.

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

At IDAP, we develop all apps in-house. Speaking of the pros and cons of the in-house app development, the quality of the app developed in-house has no rivals. We keep a good check on the quality of code to provide top-notch software solutions.

Not to mention, the much higher flexibility of the in-house app development team means quicker app updates. And as a result, we can release a more reliable app much faster.

We haven’t faced any difficulties with in-house development, so I can’t comment on the cons.

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

The projects we’re proud of are aimed at business automatization. Developing such apps poses lots of challenges to app developers as we have to find a way to improve the business via an app and bring it to life.

In other words, we provide an E2E app solution. We analyze your business and find out what feature to implement to automatize it. Then we discuss the budget and go for app development. Once the project is launched, we support the app itself as well as business in terms of automatization.

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

We prefer to build native apps due to their much wider functionality, high flexibility and flawless performance. Building native apps has more space for creative app solutions. In a nutshell, you have a wider range of mobile functionality. You cannot take advantage of all the device’s features while building cross-platform apps.

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

Both platforms, iOS and Android, have lots of followers and fans all over the world. And though these two operating systems are different, they have tons of familiar features.

iOS Pros

  • Closed ecosystem
  • Limited number of devices
  • Regular updates of the operating system
  • More advanced development tools

iOS Cons

  • Strick review policy
  • Reduced market share of Apple devices

Android Pros

  • Wider base of users
  • Easy to push
  • No restrictions on what you develop

Android Cons

  • Lots of devices to support
  • Fragmented OS
  • Longer development time

Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?

Though Android and iOS are two major players in the app development industry, there won’t be any clear winner. Nowadays there is a tendency to produce omnichannel apps i.e. the app experience is quite the same across all platforms and devices.

Which device is the best in the market right now?

We don’t produce hardware, we create top-notch mobile apps that will work on any device. And it doesn’t matter for us what device to reach. The key point is the app’s stable performance.

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

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this question. At IDAP, we have iOS as well as Android app developers. And we develop for both platforms successfully. Every team is experienced in building apps for a particular platform.

To add more, most of the apps are built for two or more platforms. Of course, our Android app developers aren’t comfortable with iOS apps and viceversa. That's the reason for having separate development teams for each platform.

Why is AppFutura useful to you?

It’s a common knowledge that finding clients is a perennial problem for app entrepreneurs, and AppFutura eases the process of finding customers as well as performers. And moreover, it’s a handy tool allowing to find interesting and challenging projects as well as connect app development agencies with clients. I like how AppFutura balances the services for boths customers and performers.
