Mention the objectives or the parameters critical in determining the time frame of developing a mobile app.
A plethora of apps are there in the market, of which some are a total hit, while some stay in public memory for some time. Several disappear without a trace. Every single mobile app that is developed and released brings in a lot of hard work. But the underlying factors which are taken into account while determining the time frame of an app are:-
• The time required for Idea and Research
• Size of the Project
• Functions and Features Required
• Testing and Refinement
How much effort in terms of time goes into developing the front end and back end of a mobile app?
Every year 1 million new mobile apps are added to the leading app stores. As such there's little concrete data as to how long it takes to create a new app. But as per Seasia survey of 100 app developers, it was found that an MVP- Quality Native App will need nearly 18 weeks, i.e., 4-5 months to develop. This can be further be broken down to approximately eight weeks for “frontend” growth and ten weeks for “backend” growth.
What are the key parameters to be considered before selecting the right platform for a mobile application?
For any enterprise to prosper in the mobile computing space, it is essential to create an app that quickly engages the user. For this, enterprises are banking on mobile application growth tools to speed up the app development cycle and launch the product in the market in a shorter period.
Here some key criteria we take into consideration when selecting a mobile app development platform
• Development Cost
• Resources Accessible In The Market
Which platform do you suggest your clients to begin with when they approach you with an idea (Android or iOS) and why?
Determining whether to create a business app for Android or iOS (Apple) relies on five parameters:
• Your target audience
• Project time frame
• Required app features
• App upkeep budget
• Revenue objective.
Our response to the client depends on the above pointers and their requirements too.
Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
Native is developed in OS-specific language Swift for iOS and Java for Android, whereas Hybrid is created using HTML, CSS, and JS. We recommend Hybrid for the following reasons:-
• Unified development
• Only one codebase to deal with
• Fastest development speed
• Efficient scaling
• Offline support
• Cost Effective
• Interactive components
What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a mobile application?
Enterprise-grade mobile app solutions can serve many objectives from branding to propelling revenues. Consequently, entrepreneurs have started heading towards mobile apps. In addition to that, the mobile app development facilities offer turn-key solutions ranging from app development and deployment to upgradation and marketing. It is important to acknowledge how mobile app development companies determine the mobile app progress price. Aspects that influence mobile app development cost:
• Finalizing App Platform
• Study & Analysis
• Visual Designing
• Developer Charges
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 accept all three modes of payment. Pay-per-feature functions well when the service can be efficiently monitored. A fixed cost is an expenditure or charge that does not change with an increase or decrease in the app's features and functionality. And a milestone payment we charge a certain percentage of the fee of a project that the client pays during the project.
Which business model do you suggest to your clients enabling them to generate revenue from mobile applications? Why?
According to me, the most profitable Business Model is the hidden revenue generation model. A revenue model is an outline for generating revenues. It recognizes which revenue source to follow, what cost to provide, how to charge it, and so on. A hidden revenue business model has a series of revenues generation ways that sets users free, so they don't get charged for the service or product provided.
