Questions to Ask the Mobile App Developers Before Building an App

Get a list of apps that they have been developing or have been responsible for conceptualization to development. Take those links of the Apple's iOS App Store or Google Play depending on the type of app they have developed.

Once you gauge the skills, experience and vision of the developer, you would also ascertain whether they are fit enough to produce the type of mobile app you need. Additionally get a list of clients or client companies that they have been working for. Here you would get the idea if the developer actually managed to create the apps which they credit themselves for.

Check the references so that you can know for sure if they are reliable, responsive and even result-oriented. You need to gauge whether they can work under pressure or flinch with whatever duties they are allocated with.

Visiting a candidate's LinkedIn profile or a company's page on the site will give a deeper idea about their mutual connections along with their work ethic.

Always ask the developer about the smartphone they use, because that would give tremendous insight about the passion that the candidate has for the platform. If the developer is an iPhone developer, he or she needs to possess an iPhone because only then one will be able to play with the apps and tweak the settings and other stuff.

Ask the app developer if they know anything about monetizing the app. If you want to generate revenue with mobile app development then the developer needs to be conversant about the built-in features which will get them revenue from 99 cents to $4.99 depending on the app features.

The developer needs to know how to work around for display ads, in-app purchases and even subscriptions. Also the app development process is clearly affected by the communication process.
