What to Ask When Hiring a Mobile Website Developer
Many businesses use mobile websites, and the numbers of such businesses are growing all the time. This is because the mobile internet market is maturing, and more and more people choose to access the net directly from their mobile or tablet, rather than from their website. It makes sense, given that a large majority of people use mobile websites, that a business uses such an app.
If you’re reading this article, then it’s surely, because you’re considering hiring a mobile website design company, but that you have mixed feelings in how to choose the best for your budget. This isn’t surprising given that there are thousands of mobile website design companies vying for business. The following is a list of tips and advice to help you to make the best decision.
The first thing
that you need to do is select a number of different design companies that you
think you would like to work with. Next, assess them on the following
- Are they a dedicated web design company? Sometimes it’s simply a collection of amateur developers touting themselves as a design company. It’s fine to use this type of set-up, but it’s likely to be of a lower quality. However, sometimes it makes sense from a budget perspective, or for those businesses that are simply wishing to test the market with a proto-type app.
- What is their experience? You want to choose a company that has a decent level of experience within the industry. You need to know that they work on the type of apps that you require. For example, some companies may solely focus on the Android market, but you know that the majority of your customers use iOS. Find out about the various types of website apps that they are able to produce.
Do they understand how to make apps that pertain to particular platforms? For instance, HTML5 is one of the latest computer languages, and if you want a modern app, then knowledge of HTML5 will prove that they have kept abreast of the market. Android, iOS and BlackBerry are common (although, to be fair, BlackBerry appear to have lost favour with internet users, but they will probably make a comeback in the future), so you should expect them to understand these platforms. Windows is becoming a big contender with their Windows phones and Surface tablets, and sales of these devices will skyrocket in the near future – a developer that has skills in windows apps is a savvy one, and it’s a fantastic sign that they’re good at what they do, because they have kept their eye on the market and planned accordingly.
- Do they offer ongoing support? For those of us who are non tech-savvy, we require ongoing support for when things go wrong with our apps. This is technology; there are always bugs to be fixed. Without on-going support, you may end up with an app that you cannot use, so make sure that they offer a good standard of service.
