Bluetooth Mobile App Development

P
posted on 7/5/19
We worked with Rushabh Champaneri of IOTTIVE OPC PVT LTD. The experience was extremely positive. They have added new capabilities to our mobile app used with our consumer IoT device. This required setting up of our custom hardware that acts as bluetooth server, connecting to it using smart phone and performing certain operations. After the initial written requirements were given and having a phone conversation about it for half an hour explaining the requirements, the app delivery went flawlessly. It required only one iteration after the delivery to fix minor issues. The quality of the initial delivery was a pleasant surprise. It was quite evident that almost every word of the requirements was read and understood.

We would hire them again for similar requirements in the future without any hesitation.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Expertise in mobile and bluetooth development.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

For the one project we worked together, I didn't get an opportunity to see any areas of improvement. Everything went quite smoothly and as expected.

Hired these guys to create a BLE application for custom (embedded)-hardware for a new client of mine.
I have been doing these kind of projects in the past with another team, and I know it is always more difficult than it seems.
They delivered a perfect product within 2 weeks. I was really amazed.

They work really quickly and deliver a high quality product.
I never expected them to be THIS good.

Very honest people with great experience in designing, developing and testing BLE apps.

I can't recommend these guys enough!


What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Very honest and experienced. Develops a product very fast.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

To be honest, I am not sure. The communication was also great, budgetting went great. I have no idea what they could approve on.

Excellent experience, I'd highly recommend Rushabh and team if you want a high quality IOT app developing on a tight budget

Christopher Duke

I've had an excellent experience working with Rushabh and team. They took over my bluetooth sensor project from a previous development team and improved it straight away. As I result I was happy to have IOTTIVE work on my next project which also uses ble sensors. The finished app works exactly to my requirements and was developed quickly, efficiently and on budget.

Pros :
  • IOTTIVE developed a high quality end product quickly, efficiently, on-time and on-budget
  • Rushabh is very responsive to any questions or requests. Any small bugs were fixed within a day of them being found
Cons :
  • I don't have anything that I didn't like, I have a had a very positive experience

Solved a stubborn problem with bluetooth

P
posted on 5/3/21
I am glad to have found this company who have expert abilities with all aspects of bluetooth device and app development. I had been experiencing difficulties establishing the root cause of slow and inconsistent bluetooth performance between an app and a dedicated device. This company quickly implemented a test app which eliminated many of the variables from the investigation, and guided me how to use low level tools to diagnose and resolve all of the problems.

Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a mobile app.
a. There is an ample number of mobile applications are a market out, but some of them are extremely popular, some of them take time, and some are even not noticed. Every mobile app which is built as per requirements is needed lots of hard work within itself.

b. Keeping the above two factors, development company’s are adopting ideation of mobile apps, but it might fail to die for some reasons.
i. Wrong platform selection
ii. Incorrect technology implementation
iii. Overloading the app
iv. Improper research
v. Clumsy UX

c. Focus on app ideas:
i. Before you start app development, keep answers for a few things:
1. What are the services you are offering?
2. Who will be your target audience?
3. Is your solution strong enough to keep them engaged?
4. Will people love your app idea?
5. Will they use it without having a second thought?

d. Put the right time

e. Determine the right matrics

f. Well planned Development, and Marketing execution planning

g. Stay attuned with latest technologies

h. Use the correct app development model

i. Engagement, and Approach towards customer
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a mobile app?
Application development is depending on below key procedures:
Requirement analysis, Designing, Development, and Coding, Testing, Deployment, Support, and Maintenance.
Answer for this one is a bit hard as time frame will depend on many factors like:
1. Application platform
2. Requirement
3. Required R&D time
4. Defined development tool and its expertise in team
5. Resources allocation on project
6. Requirement MUST be clear and freeze before starting a development

If you want to build an application from stretch then as per experienced person, and my practice, I can say it will take at least one month to develop. This includes Design, Development, Testing, and Fixes.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a mobile application?
1. Selection of right framework
2. Analysis of existing functionalities, and Future app functionalities planning
3. Select a platform which will consume less memory – Must require considering usability point of view
4. Helpful to develop highly animated mobile apps (If necessary to create)
5. Number of resources available in the market
6. Target Audience
7. Development cost and Budgets
8. Incorporation of new features to the platform in the future
Which platform do you suggest your clients to begin with when they approach you with an idea (Android or iOS) and why?
Platform selection can be determined based on many scenarios. Few of them are:
i. Client’s requirement
ii. Target Audience
iii. Cost
iv. Feasible development for crucial sections

Apple (iOS) – This is a closed ecosystem. This will regulate entrance to use their application. There are many restrictions and challenging list which developer has to follow it, if he wants that application Go Live on the store.
i. From the user perspective, purchasing a device that operates on a closed ecosystem means that it will have a higher price point.
ii. So, in general, Apple (iOS) application is more expensive than Android.

Android – This is an open-source system. It will allow modification as per requirement. This is an open platform, and the developer can get the Android source code for free.

I want to address a few key areas and best selection option from iOS and Android:
a. Customization: Android is more companion then iOS in customization. Android is open, and allow the developer to do customization while iOS is stuck with their regimented structure.
b. Privacy: In the privacy section, Apple is more aggressive then Android.
c. Fragmentation: iOS is strongly recommending. As more than 70 percent of devices are on iOS 12, while Android 9 pie is struggling to make a repo in the Android market.
Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
a. A hybrid app is created as a single app for use on multiple platforms such as Android and iOS, While Native is designed for one platform use specific.

b. Different platforms have different native programming languages, so instead of using web technologies to build one as seen with hybrid applications, you stick to the programming language for the target platform.

c. Advantage of Hybrid Application
1. Decreased Cost of Development
2. Maintenance
3. Shorter Time to Deployment in Market
4. You can release for all platform by one build version

d. Cons to develop Hybrid application
1. Performance
2. User Experience
3. Low response rate – in terms of speed of application on mobile.
4. Access to device resources

e. Advantage of Native Application
1. Smooth Performance
2. Speed of application
3. User experience
4. Access to device resources

f. Cons to Develop Native application
1. Time
2. Development cost

Conclusion: To chose Native or Hybrid is based on the requirement of the project. The decision should be in favor of build product needs to succeed in the live market.
Before selecting the type, analyze requirement, required time to develop an application, budge, long term maintenance, target audience, and user experience, etc.
The hybrid option is good, when you want application in short time on all platform, while Native is good to develop if you want to access devices resources accurately, the performance of an app, and you have enough budget to spent.
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a mobile application?
• App Development Platform
• R&D for key features
• Type of Vendor selection for app development
• Complexity factor
• Backend Integration, and Testing
• Support and Maintenance
• Custom add-ons
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
We are very flexible as per client need. We can work on an hourly basis where the client defines the scope, and we provide hourly quotations. We can work based on milestones also. Where we can agree on the fixed cost for each milestone.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
We usually have a minimum budget of $300 for smaller bug fixes and minor modifications in scope.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2018?
The price range of the projects we catered in 2018 was from $100 to $10000.
Which business model do you suggest to your clients enabling them to generate revenue from mobile applications? Why?
The answer is quite difficult because the business model for application is dependent on the application type. Instead of following a model, it is more critical than which model you are selecting and how precisely you integrate it with your application.
Most popular apps are following a robust business model and convert the user to customers, instead of covering a broad base of users. Your business model should allow you to begin earning a profile, even without a massive amount of user in term of numbers.
It is essential that work out on a few plans, do some paperwork for profitability before you select any business model for the application. By testing and planning, you can optimize your business model, and ensure that it is the best fit.

There are many modules available in the market, and people are following as per their marketing strategy and goal.
Few of the well-known models are:
• Freemium
• Addictive model
• Advertising and Sponsorship
• Paid Apps
• Alternative & Additional business strategy model
