App developers for hire sometimes have very little experience. However, they should have some track record of success. Have they produced an amazing portfolio of successful apps on multiple platforms? Have they worked with Forbes 1000 companies, or some of the most famous brands in the world?
Before you hire application developers, you’ll need full assurance that they have the technical knowledge to perform the task. An app developer is, essentially, both an artist and a programmer. As such, they’ll need to know the programming languages in question, the platform they’re creating the app for, and the platform’s Software Development Kit. For instance, at TechAhead, we house some of the top app developers in the business, with in-depth technical knowledge of each platform, including iOS, Android, and Windows. Not only do they know how to make apps, they know how to make cross-platform apps, writing code that can work on many different kinds of devices.
This may seem like an obvious and necessary requirement for most app developers to have, but many struggle to stay abreast of the nearly constantly changing guidelines of a popular OS like Android. Be sure that the app developer in question is very experienced and aware of any developer policies on the system you’re working with.
Great app developers can customize their app’s design to create a fluid experience for users. The app creator you hire should know about UX and UI (user experience and user interface).They should also start the development process by asking a series of questions. Those questions often relate to the intended purpose of the app, the business need, and the demographic information of the desired user. By focusing on the end user, the app developer you hire can create something that will get more recognitionand appreciation after launch.
While constant involvement may not be possible for certain client-developer relationships, completely shutting off communication is not acceptable. Having efficient processes means that client-developer communication can be productive. Processes should provide the client with an opportunity to provide feedback before the final app has been completed or launched. At TechAhead, not only do we provide such opportunities, but we also provide mobile consulting services to our clients. This opens an avenue of communication that can be used during each major phase of the development process.
