Android has gained significant popularity in considerably less time. Obviously, the brand-name Google did help it in getting recognized but people of this century are very particular about utility and would have rejected the OS had it not been efficient. In terms of market-share, Android is the largest mobile OS. There are more applications on it than on any other platform. You can find multiple applications for the most insignificant aspect of life as well as for the most critical one. Such numbers of application is the result of active participation of big and small enterprises in Android app development, the demands in which are being duly met by Android application developers.
Internet surf and e-commerce is being accessed increasingly more via mobile device. Obviously, every business needs a responsive website, a mobile website or a mobile application to stay neck-to-neck with its competitors, at least in the information & communication field. Individual developers as well as development companies are in considerable numbers to cater to the demand. However, small enterprises and self-employed individuals are bound to find it expensive. Therefore, such individuals and small companies can hire Android developer by outsourcing the project to developing countries. Mobile application outsourcing has particularly flourished in Southeast Asia, South America and a few African countries. Android application developers in these emerging economies are mostly skilled and highly competitive in meeting the deadline.
The biggest advantage in outsourcing Android app development is cost-effectiveness. There is vast difference in average wage charged by developers in developed nations like the US and many European nations and that charged by Android app developers in countries like India. Most developing nations, particularly India, have become outsourcing hubs. At present, demand for Android app development exceeds number of Android application developers and development agencies. Due such vast scope in mobile application development, most of outsource service providers either have dedicated team of mobile application developers or have completely shifted focus to it. In short, like there is extensive demand for application, there is huge availability of developers too.
Outsourcing Android app development is most beneficial for small companies and individuals, who want to invest on mobile application. A good application can generate handsome revenue. However, you should consider a few things seriously before your hire Android developer.
First, prefer developers who have worked on different niche to those who have developed only one type of application. It ensures that the developer is well versed with the technicality of the Google OS. Such developers may charge slightly more than others but their work is likely to generate greater revenues too. Time constraint is the second crucial factor that you should not ignore. There should be conditional agreement based on time to avoid additional charges due delay in completion. Thirdly, a local company should be preferred to freelancers. However, freelancers can be optimal choices at times.
Conclusively, there is huge demand for Android app development and outsourcing is the most economical way of exploiting the opportunity for small companies, if done properly.
