In this day and age, apps are probably one of the most popular accessories your smartphone can have, especially if you live in the USA and are a smartphone fanatic. But it bears asking why smartphone apps are developed at offshore sites more often – after all, if your market is the USA then maybe it would be smart to invest in USA-based app development, right? Here are some reasons why offshore Mobile app development is quite popular nowadays.
One major reason why apps are being developed in other countries is the lower cost of labor. If you were an app developer and you want to keep your business profitable, outsourcing app development makes a lot of sense money-wise. A good example of places conducive to outsourcing is the Indian Company – not only are Indians relatively well-educated but the standard of living is lower than that in the US. So an app developer would have a wide array of app development hopefuls to test and hire legally.
Another good reason to invest in offshore app development in India is that most urban dwellers are familiar with smartphones and it is not unusual that many of them own their own smartphones as well. This trend means that an app development project is doable because the team you hire to develop your app would probably be quite skilled and familiar with a wide variety of apps. This makes the app development easier to farm out.
Indian app developers are also exposed to working with foreigners of varying nationalities. So you may be pleasantly surprised to find that your applicants for the job know how to discuss project details with you and your US based team. Part of the reason Indian app developers are easy for foreigners to interact with is that Indians have a deep immersion in the use of English for work and leisure. Everywhere you go in the urban areas of the India you will find English used as a major medium of expression, which is great for business because English serves as a tool for expressing your ideas and terms for conducting business. Experienced foreign businessmen would tell you that workers in other countries are harder to work with because of their poor command of English.
Let’s not forget either that urban Indian like Banglore, Ahmedabad, Mumbai are heavy users of online services, thus they are able to familiarize themselves with the use of apps to access online services and products. It wouldn’t be farfetched to say that Indian are addicted to the Internet and that includes using smartphones to catch up on online activity. With this kind of heavy exposure to apps, it is not surprising that many urban Indians become curious about how they can create apps for leisure and as a livelihood. From there, it is just a few steps away to offering offshore app development as well.
So if you are into app development, you may want to try asking around for Indian app developers for your next major app development project. It may pay off for you big time.
