by Rob Stephen getaprogrammer

With millions of app developers in Australia and all around the globe, it can be a daunting task for you to find and choose the right one for your next project. And here are the qualities to look for in the developer before choosing. 


It’s no longer a secret that mobile apps have become an integral part of everyone's life today. People have become addicted to using a mobile application for almost everything now right from buying their daily essentials to getting active on different social media platforms, planning trips, reading news, playing games, and more. 


As per the current Stats reports:

Today, there are more than 5 million applications in both the Android and iOS App Stores. Around 2.8 million apps in the Google Play Store and 2.2 million applications in the Apple App Store. 

And there are more than 4 billion mobile app users across the globe now. 


And this huge count of mobile apps and users has made more and more businesses go for mobile application development. And, this, in turn, has increased the demand for and the number of app developers in Australia and all around the world. However, choosing a reliable and expert application developer is essential but this is not an easy task. Finding the right professional for your next project can be quite tough as there are uncountable developers around now. 


Well, here are the qualities you can look for in the developer before choosing for your project. 


Knowledge of cross-platform application development:

Sticking to just one platform or targeting the users of just a single platform can reduce your number of users and can keep your business stay behind the competitors. It makes no sense to just look for an Android app developer or an iOS application developer for your next project. As per the current competitive scenario, you have to have an engaging application for multiple platforms. And this makes it necessary to look for a cross-platform application developer. A cross-platform application will raise the chances of gaining prominence in the global marketplace faster. Also, the cross-platform application development approach ensures a faster development process as the developers use a single code base for multiple platforms. With this, you can also launch your application on more than one platform much faster. Reduced time and effort in building the app also reduces the app development cost. 


The required set of UI and UX skills:

The main objective behind building every application is to reach out to the maximum number of users and engage them for a long time. And for this, it is important to design the app well first. A creative, innovative, interactive, and engaging UI and UX design is essential and mobile application developers can achieve this by possessing the set of UI and UX design skills. 


Knowledge of diverse programming languages:

There are many programming languages available now and the developer has to be well-versed in all especially the latest ones and the most widely-used ones like Python, Java, C#, Swift, Objective-C, JavaScript, and more. This makes the developer a versatile professional who has knowledge of a diverse range of programming languages. 


Apart from this, the developer should also have technical expertise in the latest app development tools and trends. 


Ability to work in a team: 

A good app developer will be a good team player as well. Mobile application development needs teamwork to ensure a successful and competitive application development. The organisational skills and expertise of the team members are the two key factors that determine the success of an app. Teamwork not only ensures a successful and engaging app development but also offers a faster development process. Resolving and overcoming complex issues also becomes easier when working in a team. 


An impeccable portfolio:

An impressive portfolio is proof of the developer’s experience, excellence, and commitment. Also, the portfolio gives a clear idea about the quality of work the developer delivers. 


Excellent communication and time-management skills:

Apart from the above technical skills and qualities, it is important for the professional to possess soft skills like excellent and easy communication and great time-management skills to ensure regular work updates to the clients and an on-time project delivery guarantee. 


All these above-mentioned skills and abilities define a good and reliable application developer. And these are what you need to look for before choosing one for your next project.
