If you’re planning on launching a custom smartphone app for your business, then you will no doubt want to find the best UK app developers to work on the project. Indeed, we all want to work with the very best, whether that’s because we want to create an app that’s more engaging and attractive than a competitors’ offering, or because we want to get good value for money and work with a company that knows its stuff. In this article, we’ve put together some of our top tips for seeking out the best UK app developers for your next app development project.
Take ideas from previous projects
To ensure you’re working with the best UK app developers, you should first whittle down your choices and then ask to see examples of the agency’s previous work. All app developers UK-based should be willing to show off their previous projects, and send you a download link so that you can try out the app for yourself. There are a number of benefits of trying out an app first-hand; not only does it allow you to see the build and quality of the app, but it means you can check out customer reviews. If you’ve noticed that a developer has created an app with lots of negative reviews on the App Store, then you might want to think twice about working with them.
Working with a specialist agency is also something to consider. At Zudu, we specialise in the healthcare, fintech, recruitment, human resources, sports, leisure and tourism sectors, and serve clients within these niches across web and app development. If you work with a specialist agency, they can take ideas from previous projects and implement them into your own. Another benefit of this is that the agency will already have a clear understanding of your niche, and will be more likely to suggest features and functionalities that your customers will want to use.
Sweat the small stuff to get the best deal
As a small or medium-sized business owner, the chances are that you know how to get a good deal. To ensure you’re getting the best value for money – and creative ownership over your new app – you should sweat the small stuff and go through the small print with a fine tooth comb. Some app development agencies charge astronomical fees to make small changes to your app, or charge a monthly retainer fee to ensure your app remains compatible with operating systems. Be sure that you understand the costs associated with not only launching and promoting your app, but maintaining it. Unlike a website, where you can log on and make changes yourself, a custom app is a little more complicated, so finding an agency you can trust is very important.
The key to this is to work with a developer that has excellent communication skills. Indeed, being able to sit down and chat to your developer about your project, and know that they’re on the other end of the phone whenever you need them, will give you peace of mind. What’s more, having a hands-on relationship and being involved in the design and development of your app will ensure you get the results you need, as you know your business better than anyone else.
