How long may the development process take?

Both price and timing depend on the number of features within an app and their complexity. For instance, an average social instant chat takes us about 600 hours to complete. Adding more functions extends the development time accordingly.

Meanwhile, development of two apps (for iOS and Android) does not automatically double time for coding, because both apps will share a single back-end.

In addition, we have a huge experience in making social media apps that gives us a big head start in development as well as knowledge of how to make it cheaper without a loss in quality.

Can you develop a cross-platform app?

We strongly recommend not to develop apps in such a way! Even simple cross-platform apps usually feel the significant performance loss as they are tailored to web environment rather than mobile.

One more disadvantage of cross-platform apps is poor UI/UX arising due to the difference between iOS and Android operating systems. Moreover, you’ll have to spend extra time and money on coding individual plugins for each OS in order to make geolocation feature work properly.

How can you secure the app?

There are multiple solutions to secure communication between users. End-to-end encryption is one of them and we can add it to your app so that all the data is kept private by all means.

We can also integrate additional authorization and content protection methods to secure content from failing to the wrong hands.
