I’ve been at WeDigTech for more than 5 years, having 10 years of experience in Mobile app development and marketing working with a wide range of clients in different domains. And almost every day I receive phone calls and emails about new business and startups ideas – including the Mobile app market opportunity.
Today’s peoples are increasingly adopting smartphone for playing games, researching and shopping. Mobile app industry has seen incredible growth in the recent times and businesses are realizing that they need to be develop mobile application and reach those consumers where they find them.
“Mobile Application Development has become a necessity for many businesses,” said Pranay Mathur, CTO of mobile app development Company WeDigTech.”
Despite the rapid growth of mobile app industry, surely, there are many misconception about app development project, from clients who don’t know the process of development for application, for Android, iPad or iPhone.
With based on my experience I have listed here some common misconceptions to consider before start app development project:
It’s a Small app — just a couple of screens:
Non-technical or non IT peoples think app development is an easy-peasy process and never understand the complexity of building a well-engineered enterprise mobile app. One common misconception is that they thing the app is simple and have just couple of screen, but they don’t know that the difficulty level and cost of designing an app is directly related to the number of screens an app has. Any size of app take time to build and hundreds (if not thousands) of hours. Even a Professionally built simple apps can easily cost thousands of dollars.
My app is all about my business:
Many startups and new small businesses may have idea for an app and think that building an app is sufficient for their businesses. But an app is not a business. I mostly receive emails to build the next “What’s app and Uber for XYZ industry” many of them feel that this is a great business ideas. But App and web is just one element of the Uber business. Before you think to create next Uber and get started on an app development project, think first about the business you are trying to create.
Hiring cheap developer is Good – CLEVER OR GREEDY?
Most app owner think that hire a cheap app developer or a team with $5 hourly rate and get an ideal project for their company. And you have hope that they will be able to finish your project within a month and provide you with the exact project you needed. Sound Amazing?
Yes, and also wrong sometime.
Yeah! Miracles happen in this world. But more often cheap developer not able to deliver and you will just need to go through the hiring process once again and spend a lot of hard earn money?
So I advise you to think twice before searching cheap developers.
Mobile app is onetime expenses:
Mobile app is not a onetime investment, you need to build a long term relations with developers. Why?
Because technology and systems are updating, new technology and features appear in market every day. Mobile app can be goes down or crash in future and developer don’t do free after its release so you need long term support for your mobile application.
It’s better to hire an experience mobile app development company or team, who writes readable code once and can support their work for a long time.
Not need mobile website if you have a native app:
Sometime app owner think that if they have an app they don’t need mobile website. In most case, your business need both native apps and a mobile web. Mobile website help you to rank on google which help your customers find you in mobile friendly way on search engine. You can generate revenue from both side and mobile web helps you to increase your apps download.
So I have listed the few common misconception about mobile app development. Of course, there are a lot of other. But with this post you will have a little bit good understanding the process of development.
