Which would you suggest for a successful and profitable business progression, Native or hybrid apps? How do you define the factors that influenced you to make this choice?
Well, if you ask me, then I would definitely prefer native over hybrid applications. Do you know why? This is because such apps can offer a brilliant user experience, as well as higher scalability. Nevertheless, small companies and startups might find it tricky to build a native application because of budget constraints. There, they can go for a hybrid app, which can run on multiple platforms with ease. Being a native app development company, Fluper provides apps for advanced security, intricate feature integration, along with other benefits.
How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
Effort Estimation Process is quite beneficial for potential customers as in this process we follow the guidelines of Agile Scrum Methodology:
Every Feature and Functionality is analyzed and forecasted and broken down into a Hierarchy all the way from Upper Level called Phase to all the way down called Task. The process in quite easy to figure out:
Estimation of features and functionality is based on this breakdown structure and process. Once the Breakdown is approved then Effort is estimated, which is based on estimating every Task->Milestone>Module->Scrum->Phase on the basis of resources or man hours required to develop the functionality.
