What is a Global iPhone and Android Development Company

iPhone Development Companies have the huge benefit of selling a virtual product. A Web or an App don’t need to be carried or shipped . As it is not a physical goods, most interaction can be done and delivered online. If you run a quick search on Google, you will see that many iPhone application development companies, work on an off-shore or global basis. This basically means that there is no need to be physically in the same geographic location as the company you wish to work with. This is a great thing for customers and also for development companies. The client base is not limited to your own surroundings and as a client you can choose to work with the company you are most impressed with and not the one that is closest to you.

The world has changed a lot and with it people’s perception on how to conduct and do business. There is a global shift towards hiring and working with people from all over the world. Customers are no longer reluctant of hiring a company a 1000 kilometers a way.

Most of our clients are based overseas, we are currently running projects with clients who reside in Australia, US, India which is a major player in the global technology trend, Netherlands, Israel, UK, Brazil and so on. The fact and the nature of our work, made it much easier to be a truly global iPhone and Android Development Company.

The first iPhone Applications Development Companies since 2008

We have been developing iPhone applications pretty much since the beginning. In 2008 we have been between the first few software companies who started experimenting with iPhone Apps development and our main competitors came mainly from the US and there was almost nothing from the other sides of the world. It was definitely the time where companies tried to figure out the new technology and check the capacity of it. A few years into the first iPhone launched by Apple, there were still very few companies which adapted quickly to the new player in the development market.

As an iPhone and Mobile Apps Development Company, we have seen a massive change in trend in late 2011 well into 2012. Web applications companies, were quickly adding the title of iPhone Apps Developers to their info pages and boasting with their apps newly uploaded to App Store. It was a new playground for all of us.
New off shore iPhone Development Companies have been spreading like mushrooms after the rain and the app store has been bombarded with new apps.
The main driver behind the shift were the clients who eagerly adopted the iPhones and became highly innovative with new ideas for iPhone Apps.

Then a new player came into the market, the Android. This new player forced all the newly founded Mobile Applications Development Companies to adapt a completely new technology to keep up with the Android Application Development trend. The demand for Android Apps is increasing, but we can see that the iPhone Application Development is still ruling and dominating the market. We believe that the reason for this lies here Why is there still a higher demand for iPhone Development than the Android Development

iPhone App Development is still going stronger than Android App Development

As a mobile application development company, we get to see the trends as they happen. We get the calls and queries straight from the customers and we don’t need to wait for the technology mainstream media to tell us what the latest trend is.

With the strong market penetration of the Android Os’s and Phones, we were anticipating a growing demand for Android Application Development, a demand so big that it will surpass the iPhone Application Development demand. Although, we can see that many of our clients do own Android devices, the main demand for Apps Development is still for the iPhone platform.

We were surprised to see that despite the change in customers mobile purchase choices around the world, (for example, in Asia the use of Android is much higher than the use of iPhones) the demand for iPhone Application Development Companies, was still much higher than an Android Development companies.

When a client asked us to develop a Mobile Application, we were first asked whether we can develop an iPhone Application and then adapt it to the Android platform.

iOS-Apps

We decided to run a quick survey to get a better idea and ask our customers two questions:
1. What Os are you using?
2.Why do you choose to develop on this specific platform?

The answer to question number 1 was surprising about 55% were iPhone users and 45% were Androids. This of course couldn’t explain why there was such a demand for iPhone Application Development
The answer to question number 2 was even more surprising it was about Money! Our clients wanted to develop a mobile app they can monitise on. Which means an App they can sell and that users will download for actual money. They figured that since Android devices are much cheaper than iPhone devices, than the iPhone users will be willing to pay for the mobile applications we developed for them.
Simple but does make a lot of sense…

What to check when you hire any iPhone Application Development Company

When you are coming to hire an iPhone Application Development Company, or an Android Application Development Company. You are probably a little bit hesitant. If you have a good financial back behind you, you can easily contact one of the biggest companies that operate globally and locally and have hundreds of developers. Although this doesn’t always guarantee quality or successful ending to your project, it eases the doubts about a company’s reputation and integrity. But what if you don’t have a bug budget, and all you have is a small money you are about to invest out of your own pocket?
This is where the smaller iPhone application Development Company or Android application development company come into the picture. Although some of them are quite reputable, there are cetainly some companies that you are better off not contacting at all. Some of these “companies” are nothing but an unqualified person claiming to be an experienced company sitting somewhere in the globe and about to waste your time and money.
