How do most people develop a mobile app?
They come up with an idea and hire a mobile app developer to do the work. This means that just like in any other business, conflicts and problems may arise. We thought we’d share with you some tips on how to avoid app development problems and protect your app from unscrupulous developers.
- Always hire a reputable app developer
This tip sounds obvious, but you’ll be surprised how many people get tempted by low prices offered by some developers. Only too often, the client doesn’t read the contract well and finds out that he doesn’t have full control over the app and is forced to continue working with the same developer. So, read the legal papers well and always hire a reputable app development company that clearly explains the process to you.
- Ensure you have access to the source code
One way of making sure you have complete control over your app is to ensure you have access to the source code during all stages of the development. Make it a habit to download backups of the source code when each development stage is complete, so that you don’t completely depend on your developer.
- Develop a native app
If you’re at the stage of considering your options, we recommend that you decide to develop a native iPhone app and not a hybrid one. While hybrid apps have some advantages, you get a better choice of app developers when you go for native. This broadens your options when it comes to choosing an app developer or switching companies.
