Factors to consider when hiring a App Developer in Toronto for your Mobile App Development Project
- Technology & Expertise: Think about the technology that your company or app will use and how proficient the app developers' are in it. For example, you may choose to go in for App development through a Hybrid platform such as Xamarin. In this particular situation, it will be important to find companies which have the skillset in Xamarin.
- Portfolio: The app development portfolio of the company will also make it easy to judge their skills. Sometimes however due to NDA, Collaboration etc. we may have to use the company's own Playstore, itunes account and the live app may be visible there only.
- Team Experience: As a potential client you can also ask about the team experience and work-load who will be handling your project. Team profiles, effort estimate and timelines in their proposal to you can help you judge how likely they are bring your project to success.
- Understanding of your Goals: This is an under-estimated factor at times but it is very important the company understands the flow of your App, the Business Processes and end objectives otherwise the finished product can be very different from the expectations.
- Affordability: Last but not the least and a very critical point is how affordable is the app development and whether the charges are without possiblity of ad-hoc increase.
