5 Qualities of Top Mobile App Developers

by Karl P. Mobile App Developer

Looking to hire dedicated mobile app developers? Read on to know how to get top mobile app developers to create a high-quality enterprise mobility solution.

Given our growing dependence on smartphones, its little wonder that mobile commence has picked up the pace. This has started dominating even Black Friday sales, one of the biggest shopping days that contribute a major portion of the annual sales of small and big businesses alike. In fact, in 2017, 40% of the sales made on Black Friday originated from mobile devices, according to an article on OuterBox.


The phenomenon is not limited to the US. China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba recorded more than $25 billion in sales on the country’s biggest online shopping day – Single’s Day, of which 90% transactions were made on mobile devices, according to figures released by Statista.


With more people spending an increasing amount of time using smartphones to get things done, businesses face a unique opportunity to reach out to customers. The opportunity doesn’t end there. Businesses are aware of the many productivity and efficiency advantages that mobile app development can bring them. These are only some of the many reasons for the surging demand to hire dedicated mobile app developers.


If your business is beginning its digital transformation and you’d like top mobile app developers to create the solution, here are some things to consider.


Time to Market

To gain or maintain a competitive edge, it’s important for your business to deploy solutions ahead of the competition. Despite this, some companies spend months and even years creating mobile apps from scratch. By the time the solution is ready for deployment, technological advancement, changes in business requirements and evolving industry practices may deem the solution outdated. Even after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to hire dedicated mobile app developers and build a complex solution, the business cannot maximize the benefits.


The solution here is to not just to choose an expert mobile app development company, but to select one that offers a robust MADP (Mobile Application Development Platform). This is a low code platform, as it offers a wide range of pre-connected tools that can be easily selected and included in a pre-configured business module that suits your business requirements. Post this, the app can be customized on a business-level to suit your business’s unique ecosystem.


Using a MADP not only avoids the painful process of coding a mobile app from scratch but also saves you from going through months of testing and bug fixing. Since the platform offers an automated process, there is no need for testing and technology is made available to you absolutely bug-free. What’s more, these reusable modules already incorporate industry best practices. So, there are many underlying benefits that can give a boost to your business.


Such a platform gives top mobile app developers the opportunity to focus on user experience and the meeting of business goals, rather than worrying about writing lines and lines of code. Moreover, a MADP may offer one-click integration with various third-party apps as well as inbuilt connectors to integrate legacy systems.


With this approach, your business can have a highly customized solution ready ten times faster than a company creating apps using the traditional approach. Your mobility solution may be ready and deployed within weeks, while your competitors may be investing months to hire dedicated mobile app developers and having them write extensive code and spend time bug fixing.


Knowledge of the Best Programming Languages

Whichever approach you choose, ensure a team of top mobile app developers is backing your solution. Such a team would have knowledge of the best programming languages and would do its best to remain continuously updated on the latest developments in the technology space. This can add great value to your enterprise app.


There are several languages in use for mobile app development, including Java, Swift and Objective C. Swift is fast becoming a preferred language to develop iOS apps. In May 2017, Google announced the inclusion of Kotlin as an official programming language for Android development. Kotlin is also being touted as an improvement over Java, some elements of which are difficult to understand.


Though an automated platform doesn’t exactly require coding knowledge, coding knowledge comes in handy during the customization phase.


Knowledge of Cross-Platform Development

Versatility is important in the mobile app development business. The mobility journey of your business may begin with say an iOS app, but you’d want to make the solution available for Android users too. Top mobile app developers will have the experience and expertise to handle cross-platform development. There will be no need to build apps for each platform separately. This will not only save time and money but also ensure uniformity of apps.


If you’ve chosen to have your app created on a MADP, the automated process creates cross-platform easily and incredibly fast.


UX/UI Skillset

Your business objectives for mobile app development may be to increase sales, collate feedback from customers, provide customer support, boost employee productivity, and improve communication among your team or increase efficiency. However, these objectives aren’t reason enough for the target audience of your app. The only way to encourage adoption and retention of your mobile app is by making it attractive, more engaging and simple to use. The convenience offers to users would drive its success.


For this, it is important to focus on the user experience your app offers. And, the user interface is probably the most critical part of the user experience. This is something to consider right from when you begin to hire dedicated mobile app developers.


From Specs to Deployment – HokuApps Does it All

Your business needs more than top mobile app developers. It needs a team that is willing to stand by you through the complete lifecycle of the solution. You may need help with strategizing your solution and technology experts can contribute great insight right from this stage. As your business grows, the mobility solution may need to be scaled. As technology changes, you may want certain features to be upgraded. Look for a team that offers excellent customer support, so the solution can continue to add maximum value to your business.  


Even with the right combination of qualities, projects do get delayed due to lack of communication and transparency. Project management or organizational skills are also essential qualities that a team of top mobile app developers would bring to the table.
