    Have you been wondering how you can develop a robust mobile app that entices users?

    However, most small-to-medium businesses and startups have limited human and financial resources.

    And yet, every business has potential, and working with a mobile app development partner you trust is one way to maximize that potential.

    So, how do you hire a mobile app development partner that fits your budget and can accomplish your most ambitious goal?

    A good development partner will not only bring your vision to life.

    They will also help businesses navigate the complexities of technology, design, and market integration.

    So, if you are thinking of outsourcing mobile app development but don’t know how to make the right decision, this article is for you.

    What Is a Mobile App Development Partner?

    A mobile app development partner is a company that will provide you with expert human resources and cutting-edge technology implementation to develop a high-performing mobile app.

    Think of it this way: you are a startup or an SMB.

    You would like to enter the mobile app market, which is valued at EUR 212.3 billion this year, and develop a solution that addresses a real problem or a niche demand.

    You’re 100% hopeful that this app will work.

    But then, you realize: you don’t have the dream team to create this app.

    Even if you’re about to build a team, the time and app development cost needed to achieve this are too much to handle.

    Moreover, the budding entrepreneur you have, you are still in a “trial and error” phase.

    You’d like to work with professionals who hold the recipe for the success of your mobile app development.

    This story is one of the few illustrations that exemplify how outsourcing mobile app development might just be the answer you’re looking for.

    When looking for a partner, every business would like to find “the right one”.

    But, what factors to consider when choosing an app development partner?

    What are the green flags and the red flags?

    1. Evaluate Their Track Record

    Doing a background check is always essential when assessing your soon-to-be mobile development partner.

    First of all, set your ideal criteria, which may include:

    • Budgets, usually defined by project objectives, scope, and timeline
    • Location, whether you prefer to work entirely remotely with a third party or need occasional offline meetings
    • Human resource availability, whether you will be needing an entire team or someone with a specific skill set
    • Technical capabilities, whether the company accommodates the technical requirements for the mobile app development, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Customer Relations Management (CRM)

    There are a lot of ways to evaluate your track record, most notably through your potential partner’s website.

    Some people go the extra mile, seeking feedback from past clients to determine if this mobile app partner is the right choice.

    Here are some aspects to look out for:

    • Their portfolio, to find out if their past work aligns with your industry.
    • Client reviews, to assess the mobile development partner is easy and professional to work with.
    • Social proofs, this is to determine if the mobile development company is truly legit and prevent the potential for scams.
    • Past accolades or awards, this is to guarantee that the company can deliver high-quality outcomes.

    2. Understand App Development Costs

    A lot of business owners ask the question: should I prioritize costs or the results of the work?

    To which we answer, why not both?

    A lot of businesses feel like they’re “stuck” with the budget they have, but that does not mean it’s impossible to achieve your grandest mobile app development goals.

    Henceforth, understand what the cost will entail.

    Schedule a call with the mobile app development company and discuss how your technical requirements can be adjusted to your current cost structure.

    Mobile app development costs generally start from £8,000. The price can go up and down depending on the complexity of the app, such as:

    • How many features will it have?
    • What functionality will it have?
    • Which platform will it be built on?
    • What technologies will be integrated?
    • How simple or advanced should the design be?
    • How much timeline do you have?
    • How many additional developers do you need to hire?

    Make sure that the costs do not only entail the engineering part but also market and research, quality assurance (QA), UX/UI design, as well as business consultancy.

    3. Consider “After the Project”

    More often than not, your partnership with your mobile app development company ends once the project is done.

    This should not be the case.

    Any bespoke mobile app development company will still tend to your requests, especially when bugs arise. This applies even after the project is completely shipped.

    Better yet, discuss from the first day how your mobile app development partner manages maintenance, regular updates, and post-launch services.
