Mobile apps—without them, your smartphones and tablets are practically rendered useless, or to be a bit more blunt, boring. What makes a mobile device an anti-boredom and productivity gadget are mobile apps. A mobile app is what blood is to the human body: it gives it life.
But the thing is, developing a mobile app isn’t a walk in a park, and it’s not that cheap either. That’s why if you notice most of the apps on the Apple App Store (iTunes) and Google Play, these were either uploaded by a developer for fun and in the hopes of earning money, or funded by venture capitalists.
A 2014 Kinvey Report based on a survey with Mobile Leaders who develop mobile apps stated:
’56 percent of mobile leaders surveyed say it takes from 7 months to more than one year to build one app. 18 percent say they spend from $500,000 to over $1,000,000 per app, with an average of $270,000 per app. 50 percent of CIOs think the process takes too long; 24 percent cite it as a source of frustration’
Without doing the math, we could easily deduce that mobile app development is tedious and expensive. But that’s in 2014, and this year brings about a lot of changes in technology.
Recently, it has become easier and more affordable for large companies, and even smaller ones, to have their very own apps. Trends nowadays lean on outsourcing the development of mobile apps to save time, money, and resources. And here’s where SkyRockIT comes into the picture.
