Build customer loyalty by building an app. Whether you want to promote your business or help your company stand out in the market, we’ll find you a range of local mobile app developers to build an app for your business or employees.

How long does it take to make an app?

On average, apps can take anywhere between three and nine months to develop, depending on the complexity of the app and structure of your project. Each stage in the process takes different amounts of time to complete but the most time-consuming of these stages tends to be writing the project brief which can take about two weeks.

What is the process of making an app?

The first stage is brainstorming and finalising the idea for the app. The next stage is designing the app and once the design is approved, the process moves into the development phase. The developers will then test the app on multiple platforms and make sure that the app is market-ready. The final phase is deploying the app to the wider audience and then companies can begin marketing it.

What are the must-have features for an app?

  • Search Feature – Mobile apps need to have a dedicated search functionality to allow users to locate content that contains the keywords and key phrases relevant to what they need.
  • Social Media Networking Capabilities – Social media should be incorporated directly from your mobile application.
  • Responsive Mobile App Design – Mobile app designing for Android and Apple devices is no longer enough. Most mobile app developers also need to consider the range of screen sizes between the small ‘compact’ and ‘mini’ phones and larger tablets. They need to incorporate responsive app design into the mobile app development so that all of the users receive a great user experience.
  • Different Versions for Different Mobile Devices – Apps need to be developed for both operating systems so that a large segment of users is not alienated.
  • More Mobile Screen Touching – It needs to be designed with minimal use of the keyboard so that much of the user experience as possible is touch-based.
  • User Feedback – It should give the users the ability to provide instant feedback which eliminates lots of calls to the technical support department.
  • Ability to Work Offline – Apps should provide as much usability as possible without an Internet connection. This will allow users to do some work even if Internet access is not available.

What should I consider before deciding on a Mobile Software Developer?

  • Development time – Some app companies rely on templates which is a good option if you need a simple app. You can choose from several templates and a few designs. If you need a lot of advanced features or you want an enterprise-level app, it may be best to work with mobile app companies who build custom made apps. Your app will also undergo rigorous testing before launch. Plus, a custom app is designed specifically around your idea and your audience, which leads to higher usage.
  • Freelancers – If your company is relying on this app to provide customer service, e-commerce, or drive part of your business, you need to be sure they also have the capacity to offer these services.
  • Operating systems – Some mobile app companies only develop apps for one operating system, either Apple or Android. Make sure you are clear on what is developed when obtaining quotations.
  • Previous apps – Make sure you look at other apps the company has built. You can also use their previous work as examples of features you like or dislike.
  • Connection – It is a good idea to meet with the project manager to be sure you are happy to work with them for the duration of the project.
  • References – Contact the owners of apps built by a company you are considering to obtain some references.
  • Budget – A mobile app developer should offer specifics on how they will work with you, how they will execute the work and ask detailed questions about your requirements. Your local professional will work to your budget and ensure that you get the best value for money and create the best app for your needs.

You can be confident that any of the local Bark mobile software developers listed will help you develop a great app for your business.

How much does a Mobile App Development cost?

On average, mobile app development will cost about £4,500. However, It depends on the size of the project and your requirements. If you’re ready to find the best mobile app developer but you need a clearer idea on price, then read our handy Mobile App Development price guide. You’ll find out just how much a mobile app developer will charge and how to save money on your mobile app project.

What should I look for in a Mobile Software Developer?

You should look for a bachelor's degree in software engineering, mobile application development, mobile computing, computer science or a similar programming-centric field of study. Mobile software developers use coding languages such as Java, Objective-C, HTML5 and more to bring apps to life.

Before choosing a professional, you may also want to ask for examples of past work, which could include trying out some of the apps they have worked on. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, and Bark can show you reviews from past customers too, as well as examples of work that they have completed. This might also help you get some ideas for the kind of apps you might like and the level of complexity needed.

Why do companies need mobile apps?

An app makes it easier to promote your products or services. Companies with mobile apps make better impressions than those without one. A mobile application will make your business stand out while regular updates help create customer interest in your products.

What is the difference between Apple and Android?

There are two dominant platforms operating in the modern smartphone market. Apple uses the iOS operating platform for its range of smartphones. The second is Android from Google which is used by Google devices and many other manufacturers to build their own smartphones and other smart devices.

Fantastic team, helping from start to finish. The quality of the app is amazing and I found comfort that they only charged me full amount once my App was fully developed.
