With around 480 million android devices active worldwide, Android is set to gain market leadership over the iPhone in 2013. Brands and businesses are looking at hiring offshore android developers as having an app on Google Play gives access to a larger segment of mobile users.
Google provides developer friendly guidelines, so getting an app ready for Google Play is much simpler than having one on App Store. However, with over 700,000 apps available for download on Google Play a new android app has to be stunning in order to get the user’s attention.
With a team of experienced Android apps developers, who have worked on developing several apps for Google Play and are familiar with the policies as well as the SDK, hiring from TechAhead for your android development needs makes good business sense due to a number of reasons.
Guaranteed lower ‘go to market’ time – Our android programmers are adept with the android SDK as they have worked on developing apps across various genres for clients from across the globe. In effect, this helps in significantly reducing the development cycle, which means your app can be up on Google Play and available for download in the shortest possible time.
Open development process – We follow an open approach to android app development. This means that clients are updated at every stage of development. In addition, testing and feedback are sought after each iteration, so that there is no risk of wasting time in having to go back to the beginning to undo any bugs or issues with the specifications, design or user interface.
Scalability of resources – An advantage of hiring through us rather than recruiting an in-house development professional is that you have the option of scaling manpower up or down depending on the requirements at a particular stage. This does away with the additional costs associated with recruiting a permanent employee.
Cost competitiveness – With a shorter development cycle and lower manpower costs, development becomes more cost competitive, which means your android app can start earning much faster.
Flexibility – A common apprehension that clients face is the prospect of losing control of the development process. However, while working the TechAhead Android development team, clients are not bound by long-term contracts and have the liberty of concluding the project once the minimum term is complete. Similarly, they can extend the term, if the requirement arises.
