Top 9 Questions That You Should Ask Before Hiring Mobile App Development Company

by Sanjay Kumar Digital Marketer

If you aren’t making mobile apps a part of your business, then you are surely leaving out a lot of things behind. According to the surveys, users mostly prefer their phones to access the internet rather than a computer. 

At first, it might seem a good idea to learn how to code, but in the long run, it is practically not possible for everyone to learn it. You need to grow the business as much as you can. So what is the first step that comes to your mind?

“Hire a mobile app developer or a mobile app development company”.

But it is even tough to ask someone to develop an app for your business and to rely on them completely. So it becomes essential for you to choose the right person to carry out the work. 

There are certain things you need to seek before hiring an app development company:

  • Awareness about the platform you want to develop for.

  • The App Development company should understand the project properly

  • Are they an expert on the matter or just a beginner.

Here are some questions you need to ask before you hire an application development company:

1. Where can we find the previously developed projects?

Even if you don’t ask for the previously developed application. It is the duty of the concerned developer or the agency to guide you with their previously developed work. If you want to confirm whether the app is correct for you or not, it is your work to cross-check the applications by downloading them and testing a few applications.

If they don’t have any working application to show you, then it might not be the best idea to hire them.

2. Which platforms do you find comfortable working on?

Ask the developer, which application they are well versed with. You should even assure the developer about the programming language, they can design the project on and which platform do they recommend you for your project. 

3. Which smart device and phone are you using?

If a developer claims to have an IOS-based device, to develop an IOS application and should understand IOS better. He should have any device he claims to work for. 

4. Could you provide the information on some of the previous customers?

This is a tricky way of extracting information regarding the mobile development company. This will give you a gist of how the previous clients were handled by the company. This would also tell you about customer relations with the company. You can make a proper decision by seeking guidance about such things.

5. Do you need any signed agreement?

Due to increased fraud and illegal problems, it is best to demand formal paperwork of all the services you require in application development. A non-disclosure agreement allows both parties to maintain their privacy.

6. What time frame do they require to develop your application?

Now, this is one of the most important questions to ask the application developer. Normally, mobile application development companies take 3-5 months to launch the application. It might be possible they can develop it in a week or so as well, but that might not be an efficient approach. 

So you should be convinced of the approach they follow to complete the task. 

7. Which tools do you use to create a mobile application? 

You need to ask the developer which tools they want to work on. Unity engine is one of the advanced tools which is used by mobile app developers and companies. The basic approach which mobile app development companies follow are:

  • Requirements 
  • Market survey
  • User experience wireframe 
  • Prototypes
  • Final code

8. Do we require separate applications for android and IOS?

If you want to be budget-friendly, it is better to work on a single platform. Once you get success on one platform, you can definitely make it for the other application. 

If you want platform-specific apps, you can go with the native platform as well. 

9. Is the application going to be published in an app store or any other marketplace?

A lot of strict guidelines are required when we talk about application submission on app stores. Not every company provides app guidance on the app store. There are some strict protocols to be followed. 


A genuine mobile app development company in Gurgaon should answer these above-mentioned questions very easily. These types of companies help in establishing mobile apps for small and big businesses. I hope if you ask these questions from the company, you would never face issues with them.
