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.

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.


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 is the hottest trend in Mobile Application Development?

As there are more and more iPhone and Android developers, there is obviously a bigger pool of talent out there to develop amazing things.
So what is the hottest trend at the moment? As an iPhone application development company ourselves, we can clearly say that the hottest demand and trend at the moment is developing an app to connect to another device. We have just had a request from a client for an app to operate and control their own factory machines. There are now in the market apps that operate tv’s, smoke detectors,washing machines. As an App Development Company we can clearly say that this is in fact a hot trend that we predict will go strong in 2014.

We can also see that whilst the market is still heavily dominated by the iPhone App Development and the Android App Development, we see that other OS’s are coming strongly into the market. We believe that OS’s such as FireFox and Ubuntu, will be more notified and get more market exposure.


Clients demand for apps this year has definitely exceeded the demand for Web Development, we can see that there is a clear shift towards Mobile Apps Development. People keep asking for Apps to help them run their work and daily chores, but more interestingly, their devices and machines.

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.
