The 5 Most Important Tips to Know Before Hiring a Professional App Developer

Brought to you by Xivic, a team of big thinkers offering the best in digital product development and search experience marketing for over 20 years.

Hiring the best app developer for your product can be a challenge. Here are a few of our tips to help you along the way.


Research the developer

Do your homework. Ask the candidates for a list of apps they worked on, complete with links to the app stores. If you're unfamiliar with the apps, download them and play around to learn more.


Check their references

Ask them for a client list, current and past. Ask for contact information so that you can find out more about each developer's background, work ethic, etc.


Keep it simple

Your app doesn't have to be Superman and solve 20 problems at once. Ask the developer for their insight on your idea and ask them to offer a few simple solutions for your product.


Plan for the offline experience

The best app designs allow for usability when the user is offline. Ask the developer for their insight, and how the experience could differ on different smartphones. Test their know how!

Payment terms

Make sure that a written agreement is in place before any work outside of your research and interviewing of the developer. Most ask for a one-time fee upfront. Others require a deposit at the beginning of a project with the balance due when the app is completed.
