How to Choose an iPhone Application Developer - 29 Jun 2010
Choosing the right iPhone application developer is not as hard as you might think.
The key to finding the right application developer is to realise that the sum of the time and money you invest into an application is going to determine what kind of application is returned. In other words, if you do not want to put the money into an application, or you find a cheap developer, chances are the application is not going to be the best it can be.
Find a developer that puts time into the design and build of the app, one who puts thought into the development of the app, its usability, and how the app can develop into possible 2nd and 3rd generations of the app in the future.
Before signing a contract to start your iPhone app development, look into the company, speak to other clients, and most importantly meet with the developer and know what is expected from both parties – see if they are people you would work well with. Knowing what you are getting into before papers are signed or agreements are made is another key into being happy with the completed iPhone application.
It is also helpful to know what kind of application you want to develop. Look for someone with the skills and tools to develop the desired application, there is a big difference between games and general business iPhone app development. Talk with the developer before any agreement is made and know where they stand! Ask the developer for a timescale, ask what work you will have to do and what work they will do. Think of the project as a partnership, the best iPhone app will come from both you and them working closely together.
Looking around, and having a planned agreement before the contract is signed is the best way to choose the best application developer. With a little bit of research and a lot of patience, you can be sure you’ll get the app you want.
