Choosing a custom software development partner is probably the most important decision you’ll make when creating your mobile app. Much like a contractor for your home remodel, your software developer should be someone you can trust to be honest, reliable, and accountable throughout the duration. Likewise, if you’ve ever worked with a contractor before, you know that choosing the right one to begin with saves you headaches and money down the road–it’s hard, and expensive, to switch contractors mid-project. The same is true for your mobile app developer.
We’ve put together this list of red flags to look out for when choosing a software developer, based on our diverse and extensive experience in the industry. At the heart of this list is our belief that solid, honest communication is the foundation of a strong relationship between clients and developers. The best development partners will cover the following bases and more, saving you time and money as the project moves forward.
