Let’s see what Narender P. has to say about Mendios Technologies and the mobile app development world.

What does Mendios Technologies do?

Mendios is a multinational information technology company providing offshore IT outsourcing solutions to businesses globally. Mendios Technologies delivers elegant, full-function mobility solutions for startups, medium-sized businesses and large enterprises.

Mendios is committed to providing solutions that are simple to use, cost-effective, that meet the particular set of needs defined and that are flexible to meet future needs.

We offer tailor-made client centric solutions that are not only exceptional but are affordable too.

What clients have you worked for?

We have collaborated with small and medium companies as well as leading Fortune 2000 customers globally that include Polycom, Bell & Howell, Parker, Ford, Disney, Auchan, Havells and many others.

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

Mendios Technologies has created solutions for industries including the automotive, consumer goods, education and research, retail, healthcare, high technology and enterprise apps.

Mendios Technologies has also created apps for various categories including customer engagement, events, on-demand services, e-learning, social networking, messaging and more. Recently we have deployed Tribeca Film Festival 2017 app.

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

On an average, the project budget is USD 10,000 to USD 25,000. The budget depends on the type of mobile app, backend integration technologies, features, number of screens and complexity.

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

All the development, as well as designing, is done in-house. We keep a good check at the quality of code and app through automated tracker tools, agile methodologies and dedicated automated and manual QA team.

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

We have designed, developed and released more than 200 mobile apps for various customers globally:

The locum app is a UK based employment-oriented marketplace platform that helps in connecting pharmacists to pharmacies.

Tribeca Film Festival App is a festival event solution for Tribeca Film Festival through which a user can browse the program, and using the new “Discover tool” helps users to find films and events based on emotions, topics, and themes.

PTS (Parker Tracking System) is an innovative component tagging and tracking solution provided by Parker. The PTS Mobile app connects its user to a local authorized distributor which will use the PTS record details to provide customers with a fast, easy and accurate replacement.

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

The architecture of the mobile app depends on the customer requirements. For simple and content driven applications we recommend hybrid apps. Native apps are well suited for more complex specifications and provide a better customer experience.

Native apps are better because the native app experience has not only the advantage of better performance but also “feels right”. This means that the app interaction has a look and feel compatible with most of other apps on the device.

Mendios team is well versed with all technologies - native, hybrid and web platform.

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

iOS Pros

  • Clear and sleek UI.
  • Only authorized mobile app developers can develop/distribute apps.
  • View controllers are helpful for development (ex: TabBarController).
  • Components customization is more flexible.

iOS Cons

  • Requires Mac tooling to create apps.
  • Customization is limited unless jailbroken.
  • Development cost is high.

Android Pros

  • Customization is high. You can customize almost anything.
  • Google services have been integrated well into Android.
  • Open source can take a few hours to get the app available on the Play Store.

Android Cons

  • Security. Android software patches are available immediately to Nexus device. Manufacturers lag behind in pushing out these updates. At any given time, the majority of Android devices are not running updated fully patched software.

Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?

iOS and Android are the two largest players in the mobile industry since the beginning. iOS has always been about simplicity and excellent user experience. On the contrary, Android has always been concentrated on giving the users raw power and performance.

Which device is the best in the market right now?

In Android, Google Pixel is awesome, not only is one of the first phones to ship with the Google Assistant on board, but it also comes with new features and one of the best smartphone camera in existence.

And for iOS, iPhone 7 is on top. Dual rear cameras delivers true 2x optical zoom, 3D camera with cool portrait mode. The battery lasts longer and it is water resistant. It is fast and has bigger storage options (includes 256GB model for serious photographers).

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

We have expertise in both platforms, however iOS is better as it provides a best tooling and control for application development.
