6 Facts You Can't Ignore When You Outsource iPad App Development

iPad app development has gathered steam in the recent months. After remaining a poorer cousin to iPhones since their launch the sales of these tablets have picked up in the last few quarters. This may have encouraged you to launch a native iPad app and you are looking to outsource iPad app development to an offshore agency. But before you do so here are six facts you can’t ignore.
  • Native iPad App Development Expertise
While iPads and iPhones share the same operating systems there is a world of difference developing apps for these platforms. This is the reason there are 1 million native iPad apps compared to 2.2 million iPhone apps. When you outsource iPad app development you must make sure the agency has experience in native iPad app development. You must remember there are thousands of agencies who have never developed an iPad app though they have churned out dozens of apps for the iPhone.
  • Focus on The Niche
The developer may have developed dozens of iPad apps in the past but have they developed for your niche?This consideration is important as this often determines whether the company has inherent knowledge about your industry and the kind of competition you are up against. For instance if the company hasn’t ever built an ecommerce app it would be a tough ask for them to build an inspiring one for you.
  • Speaking To The Developers
Never sign a deal till you have spoken to the developers in person and they know what you expect from your app. There are occasions when people finalize the project talking to the sales executive from acompany and later regret not having interviewed the developer or discussing the scope of the project with them.
  • Never Overlook Their Portfolio
You may have received the most attractive proposal from the agency and before you are swayed away by how their plan sounds do care to take a look at their portfolio. This will give you a fair idea about what they have done in the past and what they can potentially deliver. You must keep in mind that some companies even outsource proposal writing to third-parties!

  • App Store Data Must Be Reviewed
Once you know about the apps developed by the company you should visit the App Store and take a look at the kind of reviews and ratings the app has received. This will help you understand the popularity of the app which is important while choosing a developer.
  • Be Careful With The Price.
It is often said that you shouldn’t be too excited with the lowest quote you come across as this may mean working with an amateur team. But what isn’t said in equal measures is the fact that hiring the most expensive developers doesn’t guarantee you success either! So do your research and know how developers charge for their services based on the kind of complexities involved in apps similar to yours.  This will help you find the best developers for the best price.

These are things you shouldn’t ignore when you outsource iPad app development and doing so may deny you the kind of response you are expecting from the market.
