The connection between the mobile platform and the mobile app developers is more than important. Different mobile platform need different skill sets for developing apps. Despite the common creative – artistic parts of an app, there are not many similarities in the way one (the same) app is developed for android or for BlackBerry platform.
This is the reason why you should choose the mobile platform carefully. There must be an audience that is interested in the kind of application you are planning. When you choose the mobile platform and you are sure that is the right choice than you can start looking for your preferred mobile custom mobile app developers.
In my experience testimonials are the best way to evaluate potential mobile app developers. If you can’t find testimonial on the webpage that a company or a developer you hire has than ask for them. Without them it is a gamble, you won’t know what you will get until it is too late. It might be wise to talk about refunds if you are not satisfied with the end result, but don’t expect developers to be warm to the idea. Needles to say, you always need to check the “small print”. See if the developing company will leave the exclusivity to you. There are cases where they have produced similar applications on the same idea. Keeping the app unique to you will surely bring more money and recognition.
Finally, the price must be reasonable. Many people that want to develop an app usually have unrealistic budgets. Talk to people about the price. Creating android app with all the bells and whistles that you have imagined can be more than you planned. So be ready to invest quite more than you previously expected if you want to make your app come true.
