Flutter vs React Native

In the current age, when everything is just about a touch or swipe or everything you need can be found on a single click, it has become vital that the tools for app development must also keep up with the enduring technological revolution. As technology advances, app developers have more options at hand when it comes how to develop an app.

Precisely, the hybrid app development segment seems to have grown rapidly as more companies are seeing the pros of developing a single app that can work seamlessly on Android & iOS devices with a single codebase.

Well, in that case, React native has gained quite a reputation for cross-platform mobile development since its commencement by Facebook in 2015. However, Flutter, Google’s response to React Native that was initially launched in 2017 is not far behind.

The Future of Mobile Marketing

Mobile devices – it’s power of reach and ease of flow of information can bring in huge impact when chosen and used as an effective marketing medium.

But, is it for the better or for worse?

Discussed at a recent conference on the Future of Mobile Devices and Mobile Marketing. Three things came up:

1 – New actions – Actions were limited to clicks, then moved to swipes, then fingers (like zooming in and typing), then hands and after that face recognition with many more to come. With VR and AR, more and more possibilities are there for using this medium as a marketing channel

2 – Mystery – Or investment – A strong reason for the user to come back to the device or platform

3 – Emotions – Advertising based on the ability to understand and target individual emotions in real time by connecting through emotions like- sadness, guilt and boredom

How to choose a Right Mobile App Development Partner?

Top mobile app development company or best mobile app development company, the most trending keyword for Google search across the globe for everyone who has an idea and wishes a Mobile Application to be developed or add Mobile Technology to their business processes. And every search made from any corner of the world returns a lengthy list of articles available on the web to simplify the same.

In the last 10 years, we have talked much about this and the web is flooded with suggestions on the same but are these parameters still the same. Things have changed with time a decade is enough, mobile application development has now reached to curriculum’s of training and almost every Software Development Agency has extended its support for the same.

So, when every requirement has hundreds of responses, it is now more challenging to find a best Mobile App Agency on the basis of traditional parameters like just the portfolio, or their credentials on portals, or how much you are influenced by their sales front face. Of course, you shall narrow down the list with the above but what when you are left with best five or three and all with almost equal credentials.

One has to intervene deeper now to find the real blood, and few of the updated parameters we are identifying and that could help areas-

1. Ask for Existing Client References –

Interaction with existing clients is the best possible approach, would be of more value if there are some references for your reason. Request feedback regarding services and support from them, get on a few minutes call with them if possible and you would have things clear.

2. Check the Portfolio for Implementation of Features and not Just Designs-

Everyone has his own perspective for designs and being in services domain, companies would always go with the choice of clients for this, but what you can nail is core functionality, always check the apps showcased for core features if have been implemented well or how that work. You shall always ask for an explanation if you find some glitch.

3. Discuss how they shall add Value

While being in the discussion don’t just only share a walkthrough of requirement but also ask for inputs i.e. as per their experience what they think is more relevant and shall add value. This works both ways – you would get to know of analytical and creative skills of your development partner and while talking with few you would have some truly wonderful content for your app, that shall be of value.

4. Explore the Capability of Technical Team

If nothing assures and doesn’t share that level of trust, you shall opt to have a Minimum Viable Product developed initially with the most relevant you are finding at that stage. We are not asking to invest much in it, but just a small app with very minimal and required features could help to identify the design quality, technical competency, analytical approach, and communication process. These are the pillars to get the right product and your team must be fit on it.

I have tried to cover a few very realistic parameters that could help you have not only the best but the most appropriate app development partner for your kind of concept.

If you are also looking for a right app development partner and finding the above in alignment, we would be pleased to interact with you here at BASE 2, since we are prepared to satisfy all mentioned parameters prior we start.

Idea to Business

Turning your brilliant idea into a sustainable business is a dream come true. But the journey of believing in that idea, developing it and making it big is not what every individual can last through.


Let’s say, you realize you have a brilliant idea in the food tech industry. You know there is market because technology is needed and people are always hungry.

So market — Check

You want to think your friends to know if they think this is a cool idea, and they indeed think so.

Cool idea- Check

You ask the manager at a restaurant near your home if he thinks this idea will be helpful. He tells you he has been waiting for this for ever.

Validation — Check

Your parents and elder sister love you and promise a sum of money which is more than your entire year’s salary.

Funds-Check

Your school friend who is out of job say yes to help you build it.

Team- Check

3 months later

You have burnt your ‘angel’ round to feed the 2 of you

Your envisioned product or half of it is still a good 3–5 months away i.e if you can have 2 more developers working on it and you have to probably find a designer because it looks shit.

Your envy ridden ex-colleague sends you a ‘Yourstory’ article about another cool bunch of people who are doing the exact same thing and have just raised a 7 figure funding and sadly their product is not half as good as what yours could or in the current scenario would have been.

Sounds familiar?

We all have been through this path. But somehow are not able to stop the wastage and the drain of the spirit of an entrepreneur. We had our own tryst with such a journey for not 1 but 3 different ideas, we are as of now bootstrapping the 4th one.

Our Learnings?
The idea

Finding the right curated idea is crucial. It may be done before, but is there something up your sleeve to make it better? Go full throttle sharing the idea with others — NDA be damned. Collect feedback.

Prototype

Do not wait for ages to build that idea into a product. Go frugal,cheap, quick build version 0.001. Measure the usability and the adaptability. Validate your idea.

Raise funds

You do not want to be in a state where you have to choose between coffee with your client or your next meal. Once you have a working prototype start creating decks & pitch to investors; raise funds but find the right investors at the right time.

Build the right team

Hire,outsource,freelance- You are the owner of the product, do what it takes to make this happen. Each option comes with its own challenges and it all boils down to making the right calls at the right time.

Develop

Design keeping the end user in mind make simple yet effective interfaces and experiences for your product. Keep small release cycles and keep pushing constant updates. Keep building upon the engagement with your users. Take feedback, iterate when need be, update.

Market & scale

Go to market, sell by all means and scale the product to be more adaptable.

Easier said than done? But help is here :)
