Time Required to Convert Website into App

Converting ready-made, template-based Magento website into a mobile application is easy. It’s easy because it doesn’t require the application development from the scratch. There are some ready-made APIs that can reduce the development time. In short, converting simple Magento website into a mobile application requires approximately 1 and half month, depending on the additional features.

But, if your Magento website is customized, then the case will be totally, totally different. In this case, no ready-made APIs are available. So the iOS or Android developers have to first understand the customized functionalities of Magento website, and then manually build APIs from the scratch. This requires around 2-3 months for any full-stack developer.

Recently we worked with Space-O in developing our IOS app for the iPad Dexter and Friends. The project was handled from start to finish with great care, I enjoyed working with Ankit Shah and the rest of the development team. They were very responsive in dealing with minor set backs such as bug fixes. Their quality and assurance team didn’t stop till I was completely satisfied with the final product. They also were proactive in suggesting improvements to the user interface and helped us develop an easy to use parental control which allowed our app to qualify for IOS app store’s new ‘Kids’ section. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a company who will stay within a reasonable budget and deliver a top quality product.Kevin
