Today, the mobile app market has grown rapidly as one of the largest business promotion platforms with a large universal audience that is rapidly increasing every year. As statistics reveal, the Android and iPhone market together command 98 percent of the smartphone market, with Android at the top sharing 84 percent of the market share.
Due to the huge universal presence of the Android app development market, it calls for a potentially successful business marketing platform for every business to strive for. With a large customer base, the Android app market is also a highly competitive business market. So, to gain a recognized position in the Android app market, you need to face the challenge of choosing the most appropriate Android app service provider.
To help you with the biggest challenge, here are 5 things you need to know before hiring an Android app developer:
1. Technical experience and specific knowledge of the requirements:
For a well-customized Android app, expert knowledge of coding is required, therefore the developer should hire deep technical experience with it. Also, the company you choose is expected to have a good specific understanding of the requirements. This can be judged by questions like: Have you worked on these types of requirements before? OR Can you guide me through a flowchart on meeting my requirements with the application? The answers to these questions will help you gain insight into the experience that the Android app developer has in the relevant domain.
2. Experience and Portfolio:
Every successful Android app development company or app developer will have an expressive portfolio along with some case studies from previously served clients. You can review this portfolio and relevant case studies that allow you to judge the company’s technical expertise. Along with this, you need to know the company’s experience, which refers to the number of years the company has been in business. With this, you can also ask the service provider for references from previous clients from where you can get valuable feedback on the solutions provided by the service provider.
3.Features and functionality of your application:
One of the most important things to work on is the features and functionality of your app. You should think carefully about the possibilities that your application could boast and discuss the features and functionality parameters of the application with your preferred Android Application Service Provider. This is an important part and will help the Android app developer you hire to make the app’s functionality more business-oriented and meet your expectations.
4. Budget and planned schedule:
Another deciding or deciding criterion is the “budget” you plan to invest in for app development. Before deciding the target budget and timeline for Android app, you need to study the various parameters that determine the cost of Android app development along with the time requirements for different customizations. Also, based on that, you can choose from the preferred service provider options to meet your budget and schedule goals.
5. Application revenue generation and ongoing support model:
Before choosing a developer, you should discuss your app’s revenue generation strategy with them. Whether the app would have a paid download option or whether it would earn from in-app purchase and pop-up ads, etc. Depending on your requirements, the service provider could add powerful back-end support for the revenue generation model. With this, your Android app can be smartly targeted for great ROI (return on investment) and lead with high business conversion rate.
Also, with the increased complexity of custom Android app development services, you may need ongoing app support for better management. Therefore, you need to know if the Android app development service provider you choose provides cost-effective ongoing support.
