How do you help your clients in choosing the right yet profitable platform for app development?
There are various criteria to choose an appropriate mobile platform for app development. As every framework comes with its benefits, analyzing the pluses and minuses of each platform before proceeding with the development is a great way to cherry-pick the framework that best suits the requirements of a particular project.
For any business to succeed in the mobile app development, it is essential to have an app that can endorse, trade and captivate with users at a high volume and on an instant basis. Consequently, enterprises are making the most out of mobile application growth tools to accelerate the progress cycle and launch the product to the market in a short span.
Here are some key criteria to choose the right platform for app development:
•The accurate framework according to the requirements of the app
•The financial aspect of the app
•The prospects for the mobile platform
•The device on which you wish to launch your app 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?
Native apps are built using software development tools (SDK) for a specific software framework, hardware platform or operating system. Just as Android app is made using JDK on Java platform, iOS app is developed using iOS SDK, Swift and Objective C.
Hybrid apps are native apps only as they can be downloaded from the device’s app store like a native app. It can get access to all the native platform features and performs close to the native app. For profitable and productive results, I would suggest hybrid apps because of the following reasons:
You need to write the code once and run anywhere.
The hybrid app can have the same and consistent user experience across different devices.
These apps can be run as Progressive Web Apps (PWA).
It can achieve the same hardware-based performance acceleration asa native app.How do you scheme your pricing model? How do you fix your budget?
Every stage of App development comes with a price. The phases of mobile app development chiefly are consultation, market research, wire framing, backend development, frontend development, and testing. But these are not the only factors that influence the cost of the App development, the timelines, and quality of the app required also impacts the pricing of the app.
