So, how do you choose an Android app development company?

With so many Android app development companies to choose from we know its a difficult decision, but to help you we’ve curated the most important questions to ask app development companies. Including interviews with our strategy team, the series will make the process of selecting the best Android development company easier for you. If you have any further questions then drop us a message.

How much does it cost to develop an Android app?

The biggest influence on the cost of Android apps is the complexity of the project and the time it takes to develop them.

We work with your goals in mind to make sure we prioritise features based on the value they add to achieving your end goals.

Setting payment milestones from the get-go sets expectations and budget controls. Milestones align with the project roadmap and planning payments after design sprints or when certain project milestones have been achieved, be it after prototyping, final designs or submission to the Google Play Store.

Our Android app development process

1. Strategy & Planning

If needed we help companies to formulate app concepts into sound digital strategies. Ideating the creative process and defining the requirements.

2. Design Handover

Having drawn wireframes and agreed on a feature-set, our digital designers handover their work to the Android development team, who uncover the most effective way to build any given app idea on Android devices.

3. Rapid Prototyping

The core functionality and features are developed with little testing, these usually identify a number of bugs and other small issues that are polished later on, once our Android development team have validated the more technical elements of your project.

4. Test & Iterate

At this stage, we run a number of different tests to gain insights from users in the real world. Iterating features and functionality based on their feedback and making improvements that ensure any Android app achieves its goals.

5. Deliver

The Google Play Store uses an automated reviewing process which usually only takes a few hours to complete before Android apps are live in the Store. This submission is where we optimise app descriptions and create stunning mockups on Android devices.

So many questions, so little time

How do I begin? How much does it cost? Will it get approved? Apple or Android etc, etc, etc.

To get the answers to these and any other questions you have just pop us a message.

Should you develop an Android or an iOS app?

With so many similarities between the Android and iOS platforms, it can be tough to make the decision between the two.

Since the very first app launched in 2009, two superpowers in the mobile game have been battling it out to build the very best platform for users, brands and developers alike; Google and Apple. 

So why not build for both?

Cross-platform mobile app development uses languages such as Facebook’s React-Native so that both Android and iOS apps can share a single code base. It has its limitations, but is often the answer to deciding between Android and iOS.

How long does it take to develop an Android app?

From discussing app ideas to submitting final designs to the Google Play Store, Android app development projects can take anywhere up to six months to complete, without accounting for post-launch updates, maintenance and continuous improvement plans.

We sit down at the start of any Android app development project and set expectations for an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to estimate the time it’ll take our team do build Android apps based on the complexity of its features and functionality.
