Abhishek Rungta is the founder of Indus Net Technologies. This top mobile app development company was founded in 1997 in Kolkata, India. It has more than 750 IT professionals and mobile app developers.

Here’s what Abhishek Rungta has to say about his mobile app development company Indus Net Technologies and the mobile app development world:

What does your mobile app development company do?

Indus Net Technologies is an award-winning, global digital service mobile app development company. We develop mobile apps, mobile games, IoT/Wearable apps, and VR/AR apps.

We work on the entire application stack i.e. backend with API, app and Frontend. Our mobile app development service is backed with business-centric consultancy and unmatched support. We are ISO 9001, ISO 27001 certified and appraised for CMMi Level3. Indus Net Technologies is known for our agility, partner approach, innovation and technology excellence.

We operate from UK, USA, Canada, Singapore,India and Saudi Arabia.

What clients have you worked for?

Clients include Ageas, Santander, Konvergence, Tesco, CashPoint, HelloGroup, Saudi Broadcasting, Bank of America, Mattel, Bridgestone, Government of India, etc.

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

We have expertise in Banking, Insurance and Finance sector. Mobile apps are quickly becoming financial services' biggest asset. Mobile apps can help financial services increase productivity and improve the client experience . We have worked for various Banking and Insurance companies like Tesco Bank, Bank of America, SBI general insurance app, to name a few. We are also the go-to mobile app development company for outsourced product development as we understand the entire life cycle of creating, maintaining and promoting a successful product.

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

10,000$

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

All the mobile app development is done in house

Pros

  • Complete control: since we are developing the app under our very roof, we can control the process on every step and micro-manage every move.
  • Management of resources: we can decide how much of our work force is required to dedicate to mobile app development if we are conducting it in-house. If we have a light workload or a strong financial period, more efforts and capital can be diverted towards the process or vice versa.
  • No clash of culture: the way we want to conduct our business is completely under our control, so there is no differences in ideology, approach or any such factors.

Cons

  • Cost: creating and maintaining a team that is capable of executing a full-fledged app on a multitude of platforms can prove to be very expensive. The initial expenditure in particular is always high.
  • Time: it also takes a fair amount of time to set up an in-house app development structure. To hire the right candidate, the right amount of candidates, and putting the infrastructure in shape takes a lot of time.

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

Bridgestone COPA Libertadores Football App, Barbie Fashionistas Dressing Game, Mygov, Axis Bank. These are a few among the ones we consider the best because of their high downloads and brands.

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

We are working on all three according to client requirements. We have teams for all three and can give rightful solutions as per requirements. We can consult on the right technology stack to our clients once we know the purpose of the app, functionality and the target user group.

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

From a marketing point of view you need to release on both platforms, unless you have a very strong technical reasons not to.

Android - Pros

  • Quicker to release/patch because there is no acceptance gate forced on us, ideal for a part-formed product i.e. the Minimum Viable Product
  • Wider install base: we have a broader population of people with Androids
  • Easy to develop using existing PCs and Eclipse i.e. not specialised hardware
  • No restrictions on what you develop, so it is open to new ideas
  • Two key markets to submit to: Google and Amazon, which means you can have multiple shots at success
  • No restrictions on deploying beta/alpha versions

Android - Cons

  • Fragmented devices: lots to support (screen sizes, performance, sensors)
  • Most of users will be on a range of OS versions
  • No double checking of the final app: therefore all the QA is with you (it is with Apple too, but they might just spot a real showstopper)
  • Emulator isn't as good as iOS and generally Android devices are cheaper than iOS

iOS - Pros

  • iOS products are premium therefore potentially a more lucrative set of people to sell to
  • Easier to develop: only a small set of hardware/OS to support
  • Easier to develop with regards UI standardisation
  • Standard tool chain so most problems have been solved before
  • Quality is higher than Android, so its harder to publish a bad app

iOS - Cons

  • Requires approval by Apple for every app released
  • If Apple doesn't like the app that you lovingly crafted over the past 6 months, that's it, no income
  • Quality is higher than Android: beta apps will be rejected, so you have to have a fully functional app
  • Very difficult to get noticed in the crowd, especially with the App Store design of only showing a small number of search results (one per screen in the case of iPhone)
  • When searching for apps, the reviews shown are only for the current version (the review count is reset on every update you issue, and in turn that affects sales)

Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?

Both. As evolution is a must to compete.
