NoGravity is a team of experienced developers with skills forged through the completion of many (not your everyday) projects. Having done this for over 10 years, we want to share our observations with you.
The longer your app is in development, the higher your expenses. But what about opportunity cost? Very often this is overlooked but the fact of the matter is that, if the competition beats you to the punch and delivers an app that captures your market before you do, then you may be even looking at losing any return on your investment. An app should not take more than 2 - 4 months to be developed and shipped. Some dev shops have a kind of fast track development process where they can deliver in this and shorter timeframes. It is always worth asking, if the team you are working with can support such a service. Don’t be late to market!

Putting an app out on the market carries a lot of weight. And so it is quite usual for many to believe everything needs to be perfect when that happens. But building the perfect app takes time and money, and not every startup is successful. One method of increasing the chances of success and delivering a product that the market will actually want to consume is by building an MVP (Most Viable Product). When building an MVP you are building a minimalistic version of your app but still delivering the main features. Through this process your time to market is shorter and you can obtain feedback from the field before spending any more money on functionality users may not necessarily be attracted to.
You’ll be faced with many options when choosing an outside partner for your dev project. However, when it comes to deciding between a Freelancer and an established Software House, the choice should be an easy one. Here are some things to think about. A Software House is in it for long haul. They have a vested interest in the work they do. They have a reputation to grow and upkeep. There can be no compromises in terms of quality and meeting the customer needs. Delivering anything less than what the customer expects makes them irrelevant in the market fast.
