Cape Town mobile app developers are a rare breed. As one of the most tech-forward cities on the continent, the Mother City is home to a wonderful community of web development companies that focus on everything from software development to systems integration. However, app developers
are a sub-species of their own.

Mobile apps are everywhere. In 2019, the number of smartphone users worldwide topped 3 billion and it is estimated that these savvy tech users will be downloading upwards of 250 billion apps by 2022. In fact, the average person now has more than 80 apps installed on their phone, of which they use 9 almost daily, and 30 at least once a month. That’s a lot of app action – it’s no wonder everyone wants a slice of the pie!

If you’re at the point of wanting to develop an app for your business, or want to use this lucrative platform to launch an exciting new business idea, the first thing you need to do is find a Cape Town mobile app developer that can make your vision a reality. However, it can be easier said than done –
how on earth do you go about narrowing down your options?
Happily, we have a few tips to get you started. Here you go:


Find a good communicator
App development can be a complicated business, and you don’t want to complicate the process further by collaborating with someone who does not communicate very well. Use your initial contact as a benchmark. Ask yourself: Did they respond to your email timeously? Did they provide all the
information you requested? Were they courteous and professional? If a company or freelancer misses one of these steps at the start, odds are you’ll only run into more problems further down the line.

Opt for app developers with a UX/UI outlook
If you want your app to be successful, you need to acquire the correct target market and engage as many users as you can. The best way to ensure that this happens is to bring a developer on board who has a UX/UI outlook. Although your app developers will work with a team of designers, having
someone on the execution side of things who also understands user experience will smooth the way for ultimate success right from the get-go.

Don’t underestimate the power of the grapevine
Before you jump onto Google, ask around. Speak to app owners to find out who did their development and find out whether they were pleased by the service they received. Online stats can be tweaked to suit a business agenda; when you speak directly to a former client you will get the
info straight from the horse’s mouth.
