Before ordering the news app development you have to remember several criteria of contractor services. The contractor should:
- Be an expert in software development for mobile operating systems (like iOS and Android, or web development by Ruby on Rails), and be able to prove this.
- Provide you the guarantee of further software working capabilities.
- Confirm that their activity does not violate laws, and all stages of your cooperation will be legally documented. There is a possibility to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
- The contractor should agree to and provide a plan for implementation separated into phases. This might include the technical specifications, a cooperation agreement and so on.
- Provide transparent access to the timing and cost system in development, testing, design of your project. Here is a recommendation: you need to avoid trying to save money on the testing and design of the mobile app, as these are important parts of the development process.
