Mobile App Developer

Lutfal and Champa and their team (Remote Programmer) in Kolkata have been working with me since 2003.

Andrew R. Taylor

I personally went to India to visit Lutfal and his team in 2007 to start off our project and they made me feel very welcome. I was impressed by their set-up and professionalism. I would highly recommend Remote Programmer to anyone.

Martin J Smith

We have used Remote Programmer for last 13 years (as on Jan 2020) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 500 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.

Martin Gibbons

From insightfulness to exquisiteness, RP proved to be an excellent partner on all aspects. Flexible work schemes, dedicated developers plus an advisory role indirectly.

Mohammed Moulay

We worked with Remote Programmer for several years and they provided great service.

Developers are reliable and supported by a flexible, capable and collaborative management team as needed.

Mobile App Development - what  type of App Developer to hire ?

People often hire a wrong mobile app developer and they only know it  at the end of the project. So it  does make sense to review different types of Mobile Apps before hiring someone.

Mobile apps and mobile app development can be broadly classified into 3  categories

1. Native Mobile Apps and Native Apps Developer

A native app is built specifically for a mobile device’s operating system - you need to build separate apps  for iOS and Android. Native app development technologies are - Java, Kotlin, Python, Swift, Objective-C, C++, and React. A native mobile app developer can use any of these technologies to develop a native mobile app.

Pros and Cons: Native apps are best from performance and quality point of view. It can access every facility and events of the mobile device since it is integrated with the operating system. But cost and time for development is higher.

2. Web Apps & Web Apps Developer

Web apps are accessed via a web browser on your mobile device. They’re actually responsive websites that adapt its user interface to the device the user is on.  Web apps are developed using HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and programming languages used for web work.

Pros and Cons: Because it’s web-based, there is no need to customize to a platform or OS. Big savings. Good for  users who are afraid of installing a 3rd party app. But it is a compromise. The look and feel of a native app can never be achieved.

3. Hybrid Mobile Apps & Hybrid Apps Developr

Hybrid apps are actually web apps that look and feel like native apps. They might have a home screen app icon, responsive design, fast performance, even be able to function offline, but they’re really web apps made to look native. A hybrid app developer uses  technologies like Ionic, Objective C, Swift, HTML5, and others to develop a hybrid app.

Pros and Cons: A hybrid app can be built much quicker and more economical than a native app but lacks  in power and speed, which are hallmarks of native apps.

Native Mobile App Development & REACT Native

Traditional native app development processes are not cross platform. That means you need to run separate projects for Android app and iOS app development. Codebase and technologies are totally different. Since technlogies are different you are likley to need separate team. So costs and efforts are duplicated. Developers are also costly and also not easily available.  Maintaining two apps could be an issue even if your budget is quite high. 

However, a react developer can build native apps using React native for both iOS and Android. Though the app must be built separately for each OS type but it shares the same codebase. You do not need two separate teams and manage two separate projects. Cost gets reduced several times. Everything is written in Javascript, so easy to maintain a future with a single developer.

Tips for hiring a Mobile App Developer

We advise you to hire a React Native developer with a full stack web development background. He /she can  take care of all your needs related to web and mobile development. A dedicated developer will be like your permanent employee and full time consultant.
