If you are reading this, it can be safely assumed that you are looking to have a mobile application for your business or have a business built upon it. And since mobile apps these days carry with them immense opportunities, when you think about mobile apps, you need to consider all dimensions related to them- the market for mobile apps, the cost of development, and the expertise of mobile app development.
Consider this- two years ago in 2016, the mobile app industry garnered an annual revenue of around 88 billion USD. Two years from now in 2020, it is projected to rake in around 188 billion USD. That is, 2018 is actually in the midst of the explosive growth of mobile app market and so if you are looking to develop a mobile app this year, you couldn’t possibly have chosen a better time.
The cost isn’t just about the money. So instead of us giving rough estimates, we encourage you to submit your proposal to the top app development companies- most of whom offer free quotes, to get a better sense of your project. But we would also like to highlight another cost- the time and commitment. It takes around 4-6 months to build an average mobile app, which is a long time for ideas to evolve and markets to mature. The point being, when you hire a mobile app development company, ensure that you also take into account such considerations along with the billing amount.
Then there is the expertise- tough to quantify yet essential for quality. While there is no dearth of app development services on the market, satisfying the global clientele with potency in a rich set of technologies and adept at varying methodologies is something that very few can manage. To save you the trouble, we have gone through an extensive research to measure app developers from across the globe on various parameters and handpicked these top app development companies that you can hire in 2018:
