Which cross-platform framework do you recommend for building mobile apps?

We recommend Flutter. Flutter is an open-source UI software development kit created by Google, it combines the quality of native apps with the flexibility and speed of cross-platform development. It was ranked as the most loved framework by developers on StackOverflow due to its fantastic features and performance, and we couldn't agree more.

How long does it take to build a mobile app?

The length of a mobile app project depends on the complexity of your requirements and the size of your app measured by the amount of screens, features, and functions.

To provide a starting point to understand mobile app development timelines:

  • Small project / No complex functions or technology / Starts at around 6 weeks
  • Medium project / Moderate complex functions or technology / Starts at around 2 months
  • Large project / Complex functions or technology / Starts at around 6 months

To understand how long it will take to build your app project, contact us, share your brief and requirements documents with us and start a discussion.

How much does it cost to build a mobile app?

When we build mobile apps using cross-platform frameworks such as Flutter, there is a singular code-base. This creates consistency and requires less time and resources to develop and maintain a single app, rather than having two code bases, one for iOS and one for Android. That means a faster development cycle with a lower cost for you. The actual cost of building an app depends on your brief and the complexity and size of your project.

To provide a starting point to understand what those costs might like like:

  • Small project / No complex functions or technology / Starts at around 10,000 USD or 72,000 RMB
  • Medium project / Moderate complex functions or technology / Starts at around 30,000 USD or 216,000 RMB
  • Large project / Complex functions or technology / Starts at around 100,000 USD or 720,000 RMB

To understand how much your project is likely to cost, contact us, share your brief and requirements documents with us and start a discussion.

Can Flutter build iOS and Android apps with one codebase?

Yes, Flutter allows us to write one codebase and deploy it on both iOS, and Android. Typically to build native mobile applications, you would need to build one app for iOS (in Swift or Objective C), and another for Android (in Kotlin or Java). Dart is the single programming language used to develop Flutter apps that work beautifully cross-platform.

Do apps built in Flutter have a native app look and feel?

Yes, Flutter does maintain a native look and feel. For other cross-framework tools, they can't render the same look and feel of a native app like Flutter does. Instead of building on top of native UI components (think React Native), Flutter draws the UI from scratch, maintaining the native experience and feel of the app, as well as its excellent performance across platforms.

Do you do native iOS and Android development?

Yes, our team develops native components and apps for iOS using Swift and Objective C, and for Android using Kotlin and Java. We will often build hybrid mobile apps that have a foundation in Flutter that can share a code-base across both the iOS and Android app, and then build native components for lower level functions that utilize hardware specific components, performance optimizations, and platform-specific features.

Do you help with app store submissions and compliance in China?

Yes, we help prepare your app for submission and launch in China. For iOS apps this is done on the Apple Appstore, just like global apps. For Android, there is no Google Play app store in China, and instead there are countless local Android app stores that each have their own rules, regulations, and compliances (PIPL etc.) to follow. Our team has the experience to navigate and manage the app store submission processes to help your app launch and be optimized in China. We also help manage your apps on global app stores too.
