What are the best mobile app development frameworks?
React Native, Flutter, Xamarin, Ionic, Swift, and PhoneGap (Apache Cordova) are some popular and best mobile app development frameworks app developers use. Depending upon the type of mobile application (native, cross-platform, or hybrid apps), these frameworks are selected to support the development of the application. Besides these, other frameworks that are extensively used by developers are NativeScript, Swiftic, JQuery mobile, Solar 2D, and Ktor.
What are the best mobile app development platforms?
Visual Studio, Xcode, Android Studio, and Outsystems are some of the most widely used mobile app development platforms. Mobile app development platforms provide developers with a single environment for developing a mobile application. Other mobile app development platforms include Zoho Creator, Firebase, Kony Quantum, Buildfire, and TrackVia. Factors that impact the choice of the right mobile app development platform include operating system compatibility, user interface design, development language, features required, integration capabilities, security features, ease of use, scalability, and flexibility.
How to choose the best mobile app development company?
When trying to choose the best mobile app development company for your project, consider factors like:
- Whether the team has a strong portfolio
- If their client reviews are genuine
- Ensure that the team is skilled enough in their craft
- Consider the mobile app development cost
- Observe if the leader understands the project requirements
When outsourcing your project to companies that offer mobile app development services, verifying their qualifications and expertise is essential. A lack of experience and skills on the developer’s end can jeopardize your app and drain your budget. App development is expensive as well as challenging, so when wondering how to find an app developer, it's crucial to pick one that is capable of meeting the demands of your project.
At GoodFirms, we are committed to helping you succeed, so we’ve already done most of the groundwork for you. Based on the criteria below, we’ve curated an extensive list of mobile app development companies adept at developing all kinds of mobile applications. Make sure to assess your selected top app development companies based on the pointers below to ensure you make the right hiring decisions.
- Portfolio: Company portfolios showcase the type of projects these mobile app development agencies have worked on. They help identify a company’s strengths and weaknesses and give us insight into their work patterns. It is advised to hire mobile app developers who have worked on similar projects as yours and have relevant experience in your niche.
- Client Reviews: Reviews and feedback have an enormous impact on businesses. They instill confidence among clients when deciding the right app development company for their project. It also acts as social proof because testimonials and online recommendations lend to the credibility of app development agencies.
- Team: It's essential to know everything about the team working on your project. An app development team has executives, project managers, tech leads, developers, etc. It will help you evaluate their talent, experience, and past work.
- Cost: Various factors affect an app’s price, like feature integration, scalability, complexity, and development time. You can get an app developed at a rapid pace by hiring an experienced app development team. But that will cost you extra. Another option is to hire an inexperienced one cheaply, which might require multiple revisions, increasing costs in return.
- Meeting with the CEO: Understanding the vision, values, and culture matters if you want to establish long-term partnerships with app development agencies. So, getting in touch with the CEO will help you understand the ins and outs of the organization.
It is natural at this point to wonder where to find such relevant information about app development partners. Most service seekers ask themselves, ‘Where can I find app developers for my project?’ Your best bet is to refer to independent research platforms like GoodFirms for extensive and unbiased data on app creation companies.
How much does it cost to build a mobile app?
According to GoodFirms research, building a mobile app can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $300,000 based on your specific requirements and preferences.
- A simple app, equipped with MVP-level features and basic UI, can cost between $5,000-$50,000.
- A medium app, built with complex UI and advanced features, can cost you between $50,000-$120,000.
- A highly complex app, custom-built for multiple platforms boasting cutting-edge features, can cost anywhere between $100,000 - $300,000.
App development cost also largely depends on the platform you are building for. Building specific native apps for platforms like Android or iOS can be considerably more expensive than building cross-platform, hybrid, or web apps compatible with multiple platforms and devices.
Below are the costs for building apps for each of these platforms:
- Native Apps (Android or iOS): $50,000 to $100,000.
- Cross-Platform Apps: $25,000 to $60,000.
- Web Apps: $15,000 to $50,000.
- Hybrid Apps: $10,000 to $150,000.
Mobile app development costs depend on many factors. These factors include the platform for which you build a mobile app, the application size, third-party integrations, and security.
- Platforms play a significant role in determining the cost of a mobile app. For example, iOS app development will be more expensive compared to Hybrid or Android app development. Typically, app developers cost and charge more for native app development as opposed to cross-platform or hybrid development.
- Apart from the app concept and platform, its size also impacts the mobile app development cost. The number of screens required in the app, including its backend functionalities like databases, user management portals, and storage, affects pricing. Companies that make apps often have better domain knowledge regarding understanding the features necessary to realize an app idea. So make sure you hire professional app developers who can guide you on this note.
- Apps would integrate third-party plugins to provide a better user experience. Social media extensions are the most common ones incorporated into the app. App developers would implement API (Advanced application programming interface) for integrations to work correctly. API consists of routines, tools, and protocols that allow an app to interact with other devices. So, implementing an API will impact the cost significantly.
- Data is the fuel of the digital age. So, security is crucial for it. Apps are diverse and require a different level of encryption based on their type and functionality. Encryption becomes more critical if your application gathers user data or facilitates payment gateways. So, whatever data security you implement in your application will influence the cost.
How long does it take to create a mobile app?
According to our latest app development research, on average, it can take 2 to 5 months to develop a mobile app. However, the exact time needed to develop an app highly depends on factors like the number of screens involved, the core functionality of your app, the technologies you need to integrate, and the project's complexity.
Mobile app development companies often categorize apps based on complexity and features. For example,
- A simple app with basic features can be built within 4 to 11 weeks.
- A medium-complexity app with popular consumer features can take 7 to 16 weeks.
- And an advanced, high-complexity app with cutting-edge features can take 11 to 26 weeks to create.
So the next time you face the question, “How much time does it take to make a mobile app?” Remember that the time needed for app development or coding the app itself doesn’t always account for other essential processes like research, design, testing, and pre-launch. Building a mobile app from the idea stage to launching it on the app stores can take 6 to 12 months.
These time frames aren’t very flexible either. Even hiring the best mobile application development companies worldwide cannot guarantee faster development because building the right frameworks and functionalities takes time. To minimize your time to market, your best bet is to rely on an MVP, but even still, the necessary development time and dollars required to build a great product eventually need to be put in.
What is the best time for your company to develop a mobile application?
Although businesses ranging from startups to large scale are all opting for a mobile application, the best time for your business to invest in developing a mobile application is when you have a clear business goal for the app and your target audience is predominantly mobile-centric. You must also be financially able to make an investment for long-term growth. It is also a good idea to consider a mobile application for your business when it needs improved sales and profits.
How do I hire a mobile app developer?
You can quickly hire a mobile app developer by following the below-mentioned simple yet effective processes:
- Draft your business goals, budget, app functionalities, time frame, etc.
- Next, search for a popular B2B review, rating and listing site like GoodFirms, and finalize a list of suitable top 10 mobile app development Companies.
- From the list, carefully go through the business websites of each and every developer and compare them based on pricing, expertise, services, performance, etc.
- While comparing, check their portfolios, reviews and ratings to determine their effectiveness.
- Based on the evaluation, select the best-fit company and connect with them with your requirements.
What are the benefits of hiring an app developer?
There are numerous benefits to hiring an app developer. Since they are professional developers, they follow a systematic approach right from ideating to delivering the end product. They are experts in handling the challenges and customizing the app according to your requirements. Moreover, since they are seasoned developers, they are well versed in the latest technologies and trends. The hired mobile app developers can work on advanced features, take care of the security and safety of the data, and deliver a minimum viable product with post-launch support and maintenance services.
6 Questions to ask before hiring a mobile app developer:
Numerous app development agencies are out there, but picking the right one that fits your needs can be challenging. While most app development companies may seem competent and well-versed in building engaging mobile apps, not everyone will be your business's perfect app development partner.
Typically, clients tend to shortlist their favorite top 10 mobile app development companies list and pick the most famous app developers from the list. While opting for the popular choice isn't always a bad idea, clients need to be able to judge if their preferred developers have the right expertise for the project.
You can ask mobile app developers these six questions to judge their app development expertise:
- Can you show us a few samples of your previous work?
A portfolio review is vital before choosing a mobile app development company for your project. You need to ensure your pick has enough industry-specific experience to build the type of app and features you require for your project. Ask for a demo of the apps they have previously built and see if the quality of products matches your standards.
- Can You Provide a Reference List of Previous Clients?
A reference list of clients will provide you with deep insight into the caliber and competencies of the app development companies you plan to collaborate with. If they’ve worked for high-end brands, chances are they have a good work ethic and high-quality standards. It is always best to complement your research process by referring to independent research and review platforms, such as GoodFirms, to understand the said development partner better.
