iPhone App Development Conundrum – To Outsource or Not to Outsource
So you have zeroed down on the thought that you are going to build an iPhone app for your ‘revolutionary’ app idea. You have put the idea on paper and it all looks quite coherent. Now you set out in the search of a talented iPhone app development company that can conceptualize the idea and develop the app of your dreams.
While examining alternatives, you find a vast cost difference between offshore companies from India and their onshore counterparts.
You find yourself confronted with The Golden Question – To Outsource or Not to Outsource While the final call is totally at your discretion, if you choose to outsource, here are a few things that can help you manage the cost of your iPhone app development project. Get your plan of action ready before you outsource. This includes, be clear with the little nuances such as whether the app graphics will be 3D or 2D, what device support functionalities such as camera, accelerometer, and others your app will utilize, possibilities for social connections and the commercial perspective of your iPhone application.
You may even consider a mix of the two alternatives by creating the graphics in-house and get the app coding and testing done by an offshore company. The latter is where most of your budget slips out.
The only possible fall-out of choosing to outsource is partnering with the wrong company. While a company with a team of experienced iPhone developers and User-Interface designers can give you a great app, by going with a novice, you will risk your money and might even need to hire another company later to fix the glitches in the app.
