You, like many other SMEs, have a fantastic idea. It’s a product or a service that is revolutionary or is projected to have excellent market positioning.

Now you just need an app!

It's no surprise that business apps are on the rise. The sheer number of benefits involved with them is astounding. They build brand loyalty, streamline business processes, provide better customer experiences and so much more.

Launching a busines app in the app store can only happen if you choose the best app-building software without further ado. Let's go through our list of the essential features to look for in -app creator software.

#1 Develop native apps

Like Game of Thrones, everyone has a favourite. So whether you're a Stark or a Lannister…. I mean, if you prefer iOS or Android, that's your prerogative. You shouldn't only look into how to develop an android app, because you shouldn't let an app developer limit you to one or the other.

App developers need to be able to create native iOS and Android apps, otherwise you're cutting off half the market in one fell swoop. So regardless of your personal preferences, you have to accommodate other operating systems, and your app maker software should do the same.

You can't fix things with a dragon after all.

#2 Right app development company

Obviously research potential app developers. If a particular company is recommended by Pepsi as their app maker platform for example, it's a good sign that they are trusted, successful and know exactly what they're doing.

I wonder who we have in mind…

#3 Aftercare included

Software shouldn’t go out of date. That’s why app developers should offer some form of aftercare warranty, but most of all they should offer it at no extra cost.

A single low monthly fee for your app should cover creation and maintenance, with no added extras. That also extends to our next point which is…

#4 Cloud hosting

Imagine you’ve hired a developer to create your own business app. Your well-calculated finance plan has been nicely accommodated and you’re raring to go… only to discover that the cloud hosting costs come at a high price.

There are app builders out there that cover cloud hosting in the monthly fee. You shouldn't be taken aback by added fees. No surprises, no problems, just software that's successful.

#5 Versatility

While expertise in one area of software development can be useful, it can lead to narrow development outlooks.

Developers that are so fixed on e-learning apps, for example, may not have the required flexibility to accommodate for ecommerce app building for example. Find a developer with experience across a wide range of mobile apps and business users, who can accommodate any special requests and provide inventive features and custom functionality within your business app.

#6 Zero developer knowledge required

You're hiring a developer to build an app for you. There's no reason you should be expected to require knowledge of software development or programming skills. You don't hire a chef to prepare dinner only to end up assisting him in the kitchen, and there's no difference here.

All you need is an idea of what you need, and the features you'd like to include. Simply choose some building blocks for the developer to work with, and they complete the rest.

#7 Speed, price, quality

There are people who insist that between speed, price and quality you have to make a choice. You are only allowed two out of three.

With respect to those people - that's tosh.

You shouldn't have to pay through the roof for a quality app with advanced features in a matter of weeks. Neither should you wait a year for high quality at a decent price. With the best app developer you don't have to make that a decision between high quality user interface, faster development and the best price.
