Samir Motwani - CEO RapidOps

Samir Motwani is the CEO of RapidOps. This top mobile app development company was founded in 2008 and is located in Charlotte, United States. It has more than 90 IT professionals and mobile app developers.

Samir has over eight years of intensive entrepreneurial management experience working with growing companies and developing low cost start-up strategies with well-defined business practices. He is trained as a developer and a designer from the heart. Samir loves working with both squads to deliver things which matter. Here’s what Samir Motwani has to say about his mobile app development company RapidOps and the mobile app development world:

What does your mobile app development company do?

Our company is a digital product development company, we have worked with small, medium and large enterprises and helped them grow. We have digitalized many startups as we understand the various requirements of the industries based on their field of work. When it comes to large enterprises, we build digital solutions for their digitally empowered customers which help increasing the reach.

When it comes to our work, we provide various IT solutions that are industry-specific, provide consultancy to our clients based on their needs, build strategies, do the research and the mobile app development work for our clients and provide them with an app solution.

We are innovators and we take great pleasure in providing personalized services to our clients based on required methodology. We believe in being disruptive as it gives us the competitive edge over our competitors.

What clients have you worked for?

We have accommodated our services to various industries that include promising start-ups to the big players in the market, such as Retail Sector (provided an OmniChannel API platform, setting up iBeacon), Healthcare (developed a mobile app for audiologists) and many more. Global customer base embraces Retailers, Health Industrialists, Bankers, Financial Service Providers, Food and Beverages Retailers, Education Sectors 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?

Well, I would like to tell you that after spending years in this industry you hardly fall in love with any particular category and it's tough to choose one. But, we can mention what kind of apps we don’t develop.

We are not into virtualization apps and gaming apps. Other than that, we have successfully delivered mobile apps for varied categories.

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

Pricing is always a topic of intense debate, but we would like to mention that developing cost of any mobile app depends purely on the various features that clients want. The average cost of developing a mobile app is primarily industry specific, but if the client is looking to get some add-on features, then the cost of making it will always vary.

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

We have an in-house team of consultants, developers and quality assurance having the sound knowledge of the industry. We started out on this disruptive journey based on that experience, and we take pride that we develop the mobile apps in-house.


  • Lesser communication gap in the team that leads to establishment of clear communication between the team and the client.
  • A closely knit team of mobile app developers that work towards developing breathtaking apps.


Well, we have not yet encountered any limitation of having an in-house team, so we won’t be able to comment on the same.

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

We have developed an iOS app for a US retail grocery chain, which gets more than 1 million hits a day which proves that the mobile apps that we develop in-house have a sturdy base that can easily carry the load of such a huge traffic seamlessly.

Another mobile app we developed was an iOS app named Riff Dish. The app is developed in such a way that it can turn the mobile device into a broadcaster, so that musicians and artists from geographically remote locations can record and share their work and send it to the central API where it gets merged and enjoyed by the audience, on a mobile app or desktop.

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

We do not have any preference when it comes to mobile apps because we work in an industry which has its own demand. But if the client gives us an option, we will like to create native apps for them as it provides better interaction and speed, and that is what delights the customers.

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

iOS' Pros:

  • Highly secure
  • Unified and highly controlled
  • Largest US market share

iOS Cons:

Its highly-controlled environment is one of the reason that limits the scope of creativity.

Android's Pros:

As it caters to a huge base of customers, it has bigger reachability to its clients.

Android's Cons:

There are too many factors that limit the hardware acceleration of Android devices making them vulnerable to hacks and security abuses. Most often the economy devices available in the market do not work seamlessly with the official software updates making it difficult for us to build apps frequently for this platform.

Which one will evolve more within the next 5 years?

Well, it is somewhat difficult to predict. See, it’s a very competitive market, let’s take Nokia (Symbian) or Blackberry (RIM) for example. They both had their fair share of success. But with the dynamic approach, many others took them over because of some limitations. When we talk about iOS and Android, we like to keep ourselves updated with the changing market trends. We are working on iOS and Android both, and we are open for any challenges that come our way.

Which device is the best in the market right now?

We are still trying to figure out which is the best. If you ask me personally, I use iOS 7 and my wife is using Google Pixel, and whenever we sit down in our spare time to talk about the features of both devices we have a hard time finding flaws in any of them. So you see, Google has been a game changer with its latest product Pixel and wants to be disruptive in this competitive market.

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

We are more comfortable in developing mobile apps for iOS devices because they have straightforward and highly controlled development guidelines. In comparison, Android caters to a diversified market having too many firm factors that have to be taken care of while developing Android apps. That is the reason we prefer developing iOS apps. We have developed apps for both platforms and with our expertise we have learned one thing, you do not create a comfort zone when it comes to developing mobile apps. That doesn’t go well with our company’s motto of being an innovative and disruptive company.
