With the launch of the App Store, Apple has given a huge opportunity to hundreds of small companies and freelancers to enhance their business in the application development market, specifically in the iPhone application development. To do so, the small scale IT companies has started their hunt to hire the best iPhone App developer.

It is necessary to check their qualification, skill-set, and knowledge in the field, but above all try to find out more of them by asking these few things.


Here are a few points describing what you should ask before hiring a developer:

Use clients’ contact information as a reference for their current job.


Previously Developed iPhone Applications: While looking out for experienced developers, it is also necessary to find out the iPhone applications they have developed for former clients. Feel free to ask their formerly developed iPhone applications. Try to have a hands-on experience on the applications. It will surely help you clarifying all your doubts related to the candidate’s skill set.

Developer’s Vision Towards Your Project: You already have a vision towards every project you are working on, but it is the developers and the entire team who will be working on your project. Give them a reason to work on your project. Give them a vision and mission to turn your dream project into reality. It will genuinely encourage your team to work in the right direction and complete the project on time.


Ways Of Communication During Development Process: The quality of your app totally depends on how often and clearly you are communicating your team. Even with pre-decided app functionality and design, the clear form of communication is still preferable between the app owner and developers.


Ask their preferences, on how they would like to be contacted, for eg, chat, call, instant message, video calls, in person or mail. Also, clarify on how they would like to submit the product’s status updates. Mobile application development is not a one-time process. It requires lots of patience as the Apps have to go through multiple cycles during the entire development process. Always opt for a candidate who sticks with your thought process through the entire lifecycle of the product.


Interested in Business or in Development?: A good developer would always want to enhance the organization's business by not just developing apps but also by indulging in the client meetings. A good developer will always have a positive attitude towards the associated organization.
