Using Outsourcing Companies to Build Your Mobile Apps

Mobile App Outsourcing is the way to go!

If you want to build a mobile app, you need a few things:

  • An idea
  • A credit card or bank account
  • A computer with an internet connection

That’s all. Are you surprised? No, you’re right, “knowledge of mobile operating systems and programming languages” is not on the list. You don’t need that thanks to sites like Elance and oDesk, the online hubs of freelance programmers the world over.

The Outsourcing Companies – Elance and oDesk

These two sites are very similar in terms of the way they work, and there’s no reason you can’t use both as a part of your search for the freelance mobile app developer of your dreams and/or budget requirements (it’s far more likely that will be an “and” rather than an “or”).

Outsourcing Mobile App Development – What’s Involved?

It’s a simple and straightforward process. You build a profile, post a job, and thousands of freelance mobile application developers bid for a chance to work for you. The fact that they bid against one another keeps things competitive, and you pick a budget cap so you know that whomever you get to work for you will fall within your range.

Outsourcing Mobile App Development – How Do I Pick a Developer?

Elance and oDesk each provide a wide assortment of tools that will aid your search for the qualified programmer. Here are just a few:

Identity Verification – you won’t get scammed by someone who is making false claims because of all of the hoops that both of these sites make independent contractors jump through in order to make sure that they’re legit.

Feedback – whenever a developer completes a job, their client provides feedback on their quality of work, timeliness, and whatever else they feel like commenting on. Those who are consistently good will have the highest ratings.

Subject Tests – both of these sites provide tests on a wide variety of relevant subjects. This way, you can take advantage of less experienced, yet suitably qualified candidates who lack the feedback of veterans.

Outsourcing Mobile App Development – Security

Elance and oDesk also make you feel secure in terms of the final product and payment terms. Contracts are taken care of in the initial terms of service agreed to by all registered members. In the case of any disputes (rare cases, but remember the Boyscout’s motto, “Be Prepared”) they over mediation services that ensure you won’t dish out your money and get nothing in return.

Outsourcing Mobile App Development – Wait Not, Want Not

The opportunity is there. There are thousands of freelance programmers and they’re hungry for work. Go on over to Elance and oDesk and post your project. In the worst case scenario, you don’t find a freelancer that suits your needs, but you don’t lose money either. It’s more than likely that you’ll find a qualified candidate (probably more than one) and you’ll have that mobile app that you’ve always wished you knew how to make.
