Once upon a time in a galaxy far away… that is not how the story started for John Estevez and his small taxi company. If we are to tell you the moral, we need to explain how John left the “green” zone and faced various obstacles on his way to success.
Green is the color all Android developers love, it’s the color of that small little robot who is supposedly in charge of things that happen inside any Android device. Green is also the color of freshness, youth, and often irresponsibility.
Why is this so important? That’s where John found himself a couple years ago, surrounded by green colors.
In modern days, a taxi company can’t compete without proper exposure and tools provided to customers. Some tools come in the form of an application for handheld devices. When John realized that he needed such a tool, he started to search for some capable developers.
He met them. A cheap team of young professionals, who promised to solve all of his problems.
Project iterations followed one after another. John truly liked every single one of them. The project looked great, both on paper and in reality. Then an issue arose.
It turned out that said team of young professionals didn’t have a business analyst and never provided sufficient information about the market. Some research revealed that the vast majority of John’s clients used Apple devices: iPhones and iPads.
iPhone app development cost varies depending on the team. In a few cases, a developer simply doesn’t know how to bring the application from Android to iOS. John faced the harsh reality: the people he had hired were not on the same level as true professionals.
John soon realized that if he wanted his application to become the tool he had dreamed of, he needed to hire iPhone developers who could simply adapt the application for iOS devices. Here is the problem: good iPhone developers are hard to find… Specialists who know the differences between two systems are rare beasts. Let’s sum up some core differences:
There are more differences and nuances. John never knew about them. He just wanted his clients to conveniently use an application and order his cabs more often. He needed a helping hand from a specialist. Not a green developer, but a mature professional with years of experience behind him.
John wasted additional funds and quite some time in order to find such a specialist. He wanted to save a dime and to find the cheapest team possible. Needless to say, greed and high hopes led him to poor results. He met two more irresponsible developers, before he finally realized that he must think of his application as an investment.
Many developers nowadays are freelancers. They skew the market balance and often make it hard for customers to find the right developer. It often creates a negative image of the industry. In reality, many professional teams are more than competent when it comes to porting an existing Android application to iOS. You just need to search and be generous.
So what does a team of professionals look like?
Did John find a likewise team of professionals? Yes, he did. He was involved in each step of development.
Together they made a roadmap and selected key features of the application that needed to be implemented in the iOS version. John immediately saw the difference. Small details like knowing how to work with both listview in Android and tableview in iOS. After a short while, John had a very well made iOS application at his disposal. He got the results he wanted: customers enjoyed this new tool. In the end, he spent a considerable amount of money for a worthy result.
What is the moral of the story? Do not be deceived by green colors. Choose professionalism over low price. Hire iPhone developers who know their stuff.
