How We Chose the Top Mobile App Development Companies in Indianapolis

Many mobile application development firms in Indianapolis tout specialists and teams that excel at mobile design. We evaluated companies on their service lines, the size of their firm, and the industries they specialize in to help you find the right mobile app developer for your business.

Multiple Service Lines

During app development, the services needed can vary depending on the project. We chose firms with a large number of service lines, such as project strategy, user testing, post-launch optimization, and experience design. Mobile application developers on this list are familiar with the coding languages needed for both front-end and back-end engineering. Many offer app development for both iOS and Android operating systems, as well as architect hybrid and wearable mobile applications.

Size of Firm

The size of a mobile application development team can affect the cost of a project. However, more team members may also increase efficiency, since there are more employees to help build out an application. Smaller firms also add value with a lean and personalized approach. However, smaller teams might not be able to deliver a fast turnaround for large-scale enterprises. We chose firms of various sizes to fit the needs of a wide range of businesses.

Industry Focus

We selected firms that have expertise in a wide range of industries. Almost every sector is incorporating tech and mobile solutions into their day-to-day operations. The developers we chose offer consumer-facing and B2B services for healthcare, advertising, entertainment, education, hospitality, information technology, transportation, logistics, and other tech-adopting industries.

Questions to Ask Mobile App Development Companies

With so many mobile application development companies in Indianapolis each offering similar features, it’s important to ask the right questions during your initial discovery call or demo. To help you make the right inquiries, we put together a downloadable list of questions to ask your prospective mobile app developers.
