SOME OF OUR MOBILE APPS
“Don’t make me have to settle this in court.” When you decide to enter into an agreement with your app developer, one of the first things you would have ideally done is laid out the terms of the deal. If you decide to get a contract (please!), you first need to decide who draws it[…]
“This idea’s mine and nobody else’s!” Although the execution of your app is paramount, the intellectual property behind it is extremely valuable too. This begs the question: who owns your app’s idea? For that matter, who owns the code? Maybe you own the idea because you came up with it, and maybe your developer owns[…]
“It’s not over till the fat lady sings. Except she’s mute!” Even after your app is done, it’s never truly finished. As a result, neither is your relationship with your developer. Sooner or later, you’ll find something in your app that you want changed. Your app will, invariably, still have bugs in it by the[…]
“I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” – J. Wellington Wimpy Communication, as this series has discussed, is a cornerstone of the partnership between you and your developer. It’s essential when your developer’s building the app, but it’s equally essential for discussing their pay rate. There are a few different business models that[…]
“Software bugs are like cockroaches; there are probably dozens hiding in difficult to reach places for everyone you find and fix.” ― Donald Firesmith It is important that you and your developer need to test the deliverable from each sprint. The criteria for these tests are specified by you, the customer, and agreed to by[…]
“It’s Wednesday. Do you know what your developer is doing?” You’re not going to watch your developer type every single line of code into this app. But you, the customer, still want to see regular progress in some form, or maybe you’re just thinking of a change. It’s reassuring for any customer to know the project is[…]
“In app development, you can’t over-communicate with your developer.” Imagine yourself as a customer visiting a restaurant. You’re hungry for a meal. The waiter asks you what you’d like. You tell him simply, “Just bring me a meal, please.” He nods and heads to the back. After some time, he comes back with a plate[…]
Starting a business partnership is rarely simple, but it’s often very exciting. In the case of mobile app development, finding the ideal developer to hire requires you to find out a lot about them. Ideally, they’ll not only have experience, reliability and reasonable pricing, but they’ll also be genuinely nice to work with. Here, I’ll walk[…]
“Perhaps that is the secret. It is not what we do so much as why we do it.” – George R.R. Martin Let’s say that you’re someone with an idea. The big question you’re thinking of is, “but where do I even start?” Before you would even think of addressing this question, you would first[…]
Coming soon: The Majordomo introduces a new blog: the App Development Series! Over the next several months, this blog will narrate the complex business of app development, from the client’s point of view. Trying to find the right app developer is a tricky business, but even trickier is getting the app built to specifications that leave nothing lacking and leaves[…]
