7 Reasons to Stay Away from Cheap App Developers

Looking for app developers for your app project? Ok, what are your requirements? An established app developer or someone who can complete your project in low budget. If you're opting for the first option, i.e. hiring an established app developer – go ahead, I wish you luck.
However, if you're looking for a cheap app developer – you need to stop and rethink.

We know this project is your dream and you're investing your fortune on it. Hence, no one should tell you what to do and what not. Still, it's not a wise decision to outsource your project to anyone before properly analysing all scenarios. Hiring app developers for low budget may be beneficial from the cost point of view. However, it can prove a lot expensive later.

In this post, we will detail such hidden dangers that you may encounter if you opt for cheap app development. Just go through the post, read all the points, and take a reliable decision. Have a good read:

Here's Why You Should Stay Away From Cheap App Developers

1. Your Project Will be Handled by Novices – Not Experienced Developers

Why would some company charge you much less for your project's development? Because they will not have an appropriate team. There will be no experienced developers to handle your project – only novices who're in the learning phase themselves. They'll make mistakes but no one will be there to guide them. In such a scenario – you can never expect quality work.
Remember, if the app developers are experienced – the hourly rates will be high and the app development will cost you more.

2. Quality of the work they Do – Will not be Good

Like we have mentioned earlier, cheap app developers will have your project handled by novices. As those people are in the learning stage – they will make a lot of mistakes. Hence, the quality of the work they do, will not be up to the mark.

3. You have no Idea When Your Project Will End

Unlike regular app developers who give you a specified deadline for your project - there is no surety when your project will end if you're having it done by cheap app developers. Your project will be handled by inexperienced developers who will make a lot of mistakes. You'll have to ask for changes again and again – and implementing them may take some time.

Overall, the project completion time will remain unknown till the end – in the case of economic app development.

4. No Proper Co-ordination between You and the Project Development Team

One special thing about prominent app developers is that they ensure proper co-ordination between you and the project development team. They keep you notified with even the smaller updates happening within your project.

However, if you're hiring app development for low budget, there will be no coordination between you and the project development team. You'll have to manage all things on your own. You'll have to frequently contact them and force them to complete your project on time.

5. Even After Completion – You May Encounter Bugs

Ok, you succeeded in coordinating with the project development team and had it completed in time. However, did you test it properly? No, do it now. There are chances that you will encounter many changes.

On the other hand, if you outsource your project to regular app developers – the whole development process along with testing and maintenance will be their responsibility. You will not have to worry about anything because even if there is any issue, they will resolve it in time.

Hence, hiring regular developers for your project is much better than going for low-budget app development.

6. Maintenance and Marketing Will be Your Headache

Yet another thing that annoys me the most about low-budget app developers is that they consider their job done – once your project is complete and the app is live on the app store. After this, it's your headache to maintain and market that app.

No doubt, Some of these developers might be willing to assist you in your app's marketing and maintenance – they will charge you extra for that. This is just unfair.

On the other hand, even if notable app developers charge you extra – they will offer complete maintenance and marketing support. Some of them even offer you perks like 90-days free maintenance, Free marketing website, etc.

7. Your App May Not be Recognised

Do you know why most people prefer having their app from established app developers? Let us explain why!

When popular developers will work on your project and mention it on their website – people visiting their website will also be willing to check out your app. This will bring more traffic to your app.

Apart from this, most of us think that the apps developed by recognized developers are also good. Hence, we are always eager to get your hands on them. This leads to a chance that users download and use your app.

On the other hand – if you're going for economic app development, your app may fail to get that recognition and you may have to invest more money in advertising it.

Overall: You're Spending More Money, Time, and Energy By Hiring Low-budget App Development

Are you saving money by hiring cheap app developers for your project?

Well, you're wrong!

Actually, cheap development will cost you 10 times more than regular app development. Cheap app developers will assign your project to inexperienced developers. They will make a lot of mistakes and you'll have to correct them again and again. Also, you'll need to coordinate with them from time to time to ensure that everything is done as per schedule. These all things take a lot of time and cost you a lot of money.

By the time your project would complete and you push it live – you'll realise that you've spent a lot more money than you would've spent if you had hired a regular app developer. That time you'll curse the moment you took this decision – but there will be no use.

So, this is the time when you have to take the right decision.

Either you can go for low-budget app development now and repent about your decision later Or you can invest a little more money, hire a prominent app developer, and have an app created for you. You don't have to worry about anything. The whole app design, development, testing, maintenance, and marketing process will be handled by them. They will even offer you free support for some time.

Are you worried about finding the right app developers?

Well, don’t be! we have come up with a suitable solution. Here how you can find established app developers for your project:

1. Several websites like Clutch, Business of Apps. and Goodfirms maintains a list of popular mobile app developers. You can find really good app developers there

2. You can also ask people who had outsourced their app development projects earlier. They can better guide you with the experience they had with the companies during their project’s outsourcing.

Even one of our references told us about this app development company called Applify a few days back. He had outsourced his project there and was really happy with the services they offered.

3. Do a thorough research on Google (can be tricky).

4. You can also use platforms like LinkedIn, Upwork, and Fiverr. These platforms are really good for small updations within your project. However, if you’re looking for serious app development - we will recommend you to look for a well-recognized app development company.
