In-house app developer vs. outsource app development-Which one is best for your app?

Mobile apps have become an essential part of our daily life. There is a lot of competition in the corporate world to grow their business to the next level. So when we decide to get our mobile app developed then we have to choose the one among in-house app development or outsource app development. In-house app development is developing an app within your company while outsourcing means that you give the task of developing the app to a mobile app development company locally/overseas. So, let’s have a look at the advantages and disadvantages of both the approaches and then decide the one that best suits us.

In-house Mobile App Development:

There are a few benefits of hiring In-house app developers. Since the developers work at your office, the entire app development process is visible to you. There is easy communication, better coordination and you can tell for the required changes in the app functionality at any stage according to your ease.

However, the disadvantages of this process are more. These include-

1 Costly and more time consuming

You need to hire expert app developers for the task. An app developer may be skilled either in Android app development or in iOS but not in both the platforms.  So you yourself have to select the developers for your mobile app. This requires more time and money to interact with the development team.

2. Higher risk factor

It is very much possible that the in-house team of developers might not be able to timely deliver the desired quality result that a large team of mobile app development company can. If app development needs to be done in a shorter duration of time then complications can arise. So there is a high-risk factor involved in the project.

Outsource app development:

This is the best way to save time and money and get the required mobile app developed by an app development company that has years of experience in app making. Such a company will certainly deliver the best quality app which is market-centric and has an easy user interface. Moreover, designers are always there to provide a better design for the app.

The main advantages of outsourcing app development are-

1. Getting optimized solutions

 A good app development company takes less time to develop an app and provides cost-effective solutions. After analyzing your app requirements, the company will tell you the approximate budget and time schedule of the project. This will enable you to have a clear picture of the entire app development process.

2. App gets the most suitable platform

The company has expert developers for all platforms. Even a hybrid app can be developed that runs on both Android and iOS platforms. So as the best suitable app gets developed as per your instructions and business interests.

 3. App development with more responsibility

The concerned app development team of the company proceeds with a clear approach and with the best possible technology-oriented solutions.  They will also suggest some new ideas for improving the app if required and coordinate with you accordingly. If there are some issues or mistakes in the app then they will be corrected for sure and you get a well tested mobile app.

4.  The right app functionality gets implemented soon

A mobile app development company that has a proven track of work will get the right functionality incorporated in the app very soon by a well-experienced team of app developers. The development teams usually have already existing standard libraries which can be used to implement specific tasks. So the app development process need not get every feature built right from the scratch which saves time and proves to be cost-efficient.

 There are minor disadvantages of app outsourcing. If you are an overseas client who has outsourced the app development to a company located in some other country then communication problems can occur. Since different time zones are there according to different places so there can be some problems in communicating at each other’s convenient timings.  But this disadvantage is negligible as reputed app development companies adjust their communication schedule as per the client’s convenience and keep the client updated during the app development process.


Form this article it is clear that outsourcing mobile app development is much better and makes more sense than In-house app development. It ensures that safe and reliable app gets developed and delivered. So go ahead and find the best mobile app development company for your app.
