A good partnership can be established with a quality communication. And to identify whether the mobile application development company you’re talking to is the right one or not, pay attention to how many times they repeat their achievements or how they end the conversation.
If your conversation ends with “We’re the right people for you” or “That’s why you should choose to work with us” or “We’re pack of super cool people”, then that agency might not be the best mobile app development company for you.
Remember, every app development agency will try to show their best sides to impress you, but the point is that you’re not here to judge whether an agency is good or bad. Your job is to figure out whether they’re right for you or not. And to find out, here’s a bunch of questions you need to ask them during initial conversations.

This question may seem foolish to ask since it relates more to you than them. Moreover, it would be strange to ask it right away, immediately after pitching your mobile app idea, but on the bright side it’ll help you find out whether they share the same vision as you or not.
In simple words, the answer will help you understand that whether the company you’re interviewing with, gets your idea and challenges of obtaining your target audience correctly or not.
2 – What Kind of Improvements Can You Suggest on My Mobile App Idea?
Entrepreneurs always prefer to work with professional people who are passionate about what they do. Such people are always full of ideas which can further improve your project and make it even better.
The client of Wanderkit, for example, approached us with her unique social networking app idea for travellers. The design part was already done from her side but still, our project manager came up with certainly good improvements such as one-to-one private chat functionality and group functionality, which greatly increased the user engagement.
3 – Have Any of Your Previous Clients’ Apps Achieved Any Great Success?
Your ultimate goal, just like other entrepreneurs, is not just to build an app, but to generate revenue out of it. This means, success stories of the agencies previous clients should matter to you.
However, having such successful client stories doesn’t mean that the app development agency will get you the success you want for your app. Sometimes, apps fail due to other reasons such as founders’ crisis, poor marketing techniques, or lack of funding, and it’s where an app development agency has nothing to do with failure occurred from it.
4 – How Many People Will Work on My App?
Generally, the communication between assigned developers and the client is the task of project managers. But, you’ve the full right to know who specifically is going to work on your app and talk to them personally if want to.
You can also ask about the previous project the developer has worked on, what sort of features he has implemented till now, and how he or she will be going to implement a feature which he had never had experience before. Here, the entrepreneurs must know that it’s totally normal that all developers don’t have the experience of implementing feature that exists in mobile app market, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t.
For example, when we were building on-demand delivery app – Ninja, the chat functionality had some issues as the developer assigned to this project was implementing for the first time. But, with the help of senior developers and proper R&D, he successfully added the chat functionality in his second attempt.
