Are you tired of poring over results and reviews for mobile app development companies? There are so many to chose from, but which is the best?

Perhaps we should not ask which is “best” in terms of the number of clients or revenue, but “which is best for me?” 

Of course, you’ll want your app to reflect your brand, engage your users, and ultimately turn a profit, so let’s take a closer look at how to choose a mobile app developer that will help you reach those goals.

Mobile app revenue is on a steady incline, so now is a great time to find the right app developer for your project.

The Best Mobile App Development Companies Are Worth The Cost

Price is going to be a big determining factor in your choice of developer, but don’t automatically give your business to the lowest bidder. 

The average global cost of an iOS app is around $28,000, which is not including the cost of additional platforms. 

Mobile app developers who know their worth will do what it takes to deliver you a reliable app that you and your users will be happy with. 

App Development Companies VS Freelancers

Mobile app developers come in all different shapes and sizes, from corporate tech companies, small businesses, down to individual freelancers. Finding the right match for you can be determined by figuring the experience you want to have.

Small businesses in the app development world almost always deliver a better experience than large tech companies.

Large companies may look attractive due to their large marketing budget, but you may not receive personalized service as you would working with a smaller company.

Finding the right freelancer can be tricky and take a lot of sifting through google results, reviews, and your network. There are some risks with freelancers- they could be unreliable or lazy, or perhaps not honestly represented their work. Because of the various skillsets required, a freelancer may be limited in the scope of work they can produce.  

The best way to find the right fit is to talk to them. Call up these companies and ask them questions to get a better understanding of what your experience will be as they bring your project to completion.

How Will Your Developer be Paid?

It is important to understand what the developer expects for their payment method before going further.

As Delivered

Here your developer will estimate how long the project will take to give you a good idea of how much your project will cost. First, you will pay a determined amount to cover upfront costs. This will get your developer started and show you mean business. Going forward you will make staggered payments based on what your team delivers.


Some agencies will prefer a monthly payment plan to keep the project rolling. This will cover their monthly costs. With this method, you will also be making payments based on the progression of the app.

Check Out Their Portfolio

One way to flesh out the right developer for you is to closely examine their portfolio. It’s a good way to ensure their style matches yours, and that they can creatively adapt from project to project. 

Be on the lookout for multiple apps that look and function the same as you’ll want to stand out from your competition.
