Software Development is a complex process that requires many moving parts working together in harmony for a piece of “usable” software to be produced. The complexity of this process is usually the source of surprises and inefficiencies in projects which result is delayed deliveries and cost overruns. These inefficiencies and surprises can be reduced if decisions are made with a better understanding of the software development process and their impact on the project. We help key decision makers of a software project make better decisions by making the software development uncomplicated. Understanding each moving part and how that impacts the overall project will give them the insight to reduce the risks of the project. Using our unique approach to software development, which is a mixture of lean software development and agile processes, we can deliver projects on time and on budget with fewest surprises possible. This enables us to increase the success rate of software projects.

While others may consider the first line of code the beginning of the project, we at Sidekick Interactive know that understanding your vision is the first step in creating the perfect native mobile application. Since 2011, our Montreal-based multidisciplinary team works on ambitious projects in America and Europe, helping transform ideas into powerful applications.We created 2 steps to achieve success within the right time-frame. First, we propose in-house developed products which can be adapted to your needs.We have created apps frameworks for numerous markets, from Tourism, to Smart-City Solutions, to 3D Scan. Second and foremost, we build custom solutions which are co-created with our clients. It starts with our experts and you, sitting down for a co-creation workshop. Why? To immerse ourselves in your project, share ideas and expertise, and create a strategy that aligns with your objectives. Only once we are on the same page can we start designing your app together. The workshop ends with our client having a project brief and a functional prototype in-hand. After this, our iOS and Android programmers can start using their magic to develop your native mobile app. But you’re not off the hook. It takes constant communication and transparency for the project to run smoothly, and for us to succeed in putting the best mobile solution possible in your hands. But for all that to happen, you need experts, UX/UI designers and senior programmers in a trustworthy, reliable development company. You need a Sidekick.

The world is constantly evolving. It especially concerns the mobile world. The development of a mobile app for business opens up many possibilities depending on its functions and the purposes for which it was created. For example, with the help of an application, you can expand users' target audience, increase brand loyalty, increase sales, and, consequently, get more profit. Many companies hire app development agencies in Canada and order the development of a mobile application to simplify and speed up internal work processes. Examples are mobile apps for working with documents (collecting employee reports, checking and editing documents, sending scans, signing papers), optimizing employees' work, and so on.

To begin with, you should decide on the future of the mobile application. After you have defined the sphere of development, it is worth thinking about the future application platform - iOS or Android. The development for each of them has its own features. The platform's choice - this is a key stage of the business plan for developing the mobile application because it depends on the development budget, audience coverage, and features of the development and promotion of your future application.

After you have decided on the idea, functionality and platforms, on which the future application will work, you need to make a competent technical task and decide which app development company in Canada to hire. 

It would help if you approached choosing an app development agency in Canada to develop a mobile application wisely.

Fault, in this case, can lead to a number of problems:

  • delays in the work process;
  • lack of understanding;
  • unprofessionalism of an app development company in Canada, and as a result, poor quality code, bugs in the application, and endless editing.

How to avoid these problems and choose a reliable app developer in Canada?

  1. Take a closer look at the company's portfolio and contact its previous clients: find out if they are satisfied with the organization's cooperation and if it is worth trusting? Download several applications from the App Store and Google Play. Test them. See how easy they are to work with.
  2. Check if the Canada app developer has similar projects. For example, you need an app for a fintech app or an educational application. If the developer in the portfolio has a similar case - great! So, there is an understanding of the features of the project, terms, budget.
  3. Do not look only at the price of development: choosing an app development agency in Canada on this principle will bring more problems than benefits. Your task is to get a working product.
  4. Find out what technologies an app development agency in Canada uses. Experienced development companies follow the innovations in the field of development and constantly pump up their skills. Today qualitative mobile applications on iOS write on Objective-C and Swift. Android applications are developed on Java and Kotlin. Cross-platform mobile solutions - on JavaScript: frameworks NativeScript, React Native, Ionic.
  5. Do not forget about UI/UX design: a useful application is functional and convenient, with an intuitive interface. 
  6. Ask about post-warranty support. Post-warranty support, or technical support, implies the improvement of the application. 
  7. Set up a meeting with an app development company in Canada. From the first communication, you can immediately understand whether you will work together.

You can address both to a young company and to a quite well-known developer of mobile applications. The main task to understand: whether the developer has something important and valuable for you.

As you can see, the search for app development companies in Canada to create an application is not only a search for developers who write on Java or Swift; it is also a search for QA experts, designers, in each of which you need to be sure. 

Choose a team carefully and get a ready functional application, which increases your business.
