Ranjan's company, Big Apple Design Group, is the best website design, programming and development tech company I have ever worked with. From the early stage of project conception through the layout & graphic designs, programming and to the development stage, Big Apple Design Group has proven again and again its expertise in the 21st century tech industry. From my experience, Big Apple Design Group will not only design a professional, cutting-edge, user-friendly, revenue-generating and highly responsive website, this reputable tech company in the heart of New York is always reachable, accessible, has the patience to listen to their clients to better understand their needs, meets deadlines, responds to queries on time, and above all works with and accompanies their clients from conception to the end of the project. Designing, developing and launching a high tech, responsive and user-friendly website is not easy by its nature, but Big Apple Design Group has the capacity and ability to transform a dream to a reality by taking the stress off the client, and mobilizing a team of experts - concept, graphic and layout designers, programmers and developers, market strategists & analysts and database experts - to exceed your expectations. These are the services I received from Big Apple Design Group. I will definitely recommend this company to anybody. From 0 to 100 (0 being poor and 100 being excellent), I will confidently and objectively rate Ranjan and Big Apple Design Group 100.

As my side project, I wanted to build a game app and its landing webpage to promote this app. So, I started to tap my connection and one of my friends referred me to Jason's team. We had an initial Skype chat and then once a week video chat to share comments and thoughts on design prototypes. I know it's hard and time-consuming to get me 3 characters options and he managed that so I enjoyed picking one that interested me the most. Anyway, I really thank Jason for his work and smooth communication over the course of work!

    Shante is an interaction designer with a concentration in game design, animation and narrative. She is a "right-brained" thinker, thus more apt to lean on her verbal and kinesthetic ability due to her "south-pawed" nature. Her work is built on the research done in cognitive science, educational technologies and games to enhance learning. Neural networks and the way the brain stores information are a continued source of inspiration and wonder with which she draws from daily.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        How do I find a good app developer?

        A good app developer can help you if your company wants to build a new mobile app for customers but you don’t have an IT or development team on staff. First, decide whether you want an app made for the iPhone or Android phones or both, then start your search by finding an app developer with expertise in your chosen platform. Ask for samples of their work, such as code samples, that can be tested on open source repository sites like GitLab and GitHub. You can also interview firms that specialize in mobile app development for small companies or startups; they should be able to offer examples of different types of apps they’ve built, and are likely to have expertise in a range of technologies and platforms. Before you sign a contract, make sure to ask prospective app developers these questions:

        • What other apps have you developed? Make sure the apps in their portfolio reflect the type of work you want to have done for your company. It’s especially helpful if they understand your industry.
        • What technology and development services do you offer? Ideally, an app developer will conduct a business analysis, develop the app, perform quality testing and make sure the launch is successful.

        Will you maintain the app after it’s launched? Releasing an app is only the beginning. You’ll need someone to maintain it too, releasing updates and fixing bugs.

        Who builds apps?

        Apps are usually built by software developers who specialize in mobile software. They may be experts in just one mobile software development language or know several, and may have expertise in front-end or back-end web development. No matter what kind of phone or tablet you carry, there are hundreds of apps for it — and new ones seem to be added to the app stores every day. Before you hire an app developer, it’s important to have specific goals for your app and a clear idea of its purpose. When your company is ready to build an app, you can hire a freelance app developer or work with an app development company that can also support the app after it’s launched. It’s important to know whether you’ll need the developer to provide ongoing maintenance and support or if your internal IT team can maintain it after its launch.

        How much does it cost to hire an app developer?

        Software development is a serious investment for any company, costing thousands of dollars for even basic apps. It’s tough to estimate costs because there are so many variables to each project: user requirements, feature set, complexity, size, etc. Mobile apps can cost from $20,000 to more than $100,000, depending on what you need the app to do. The average national cost of an app developer is $237.50 per hour, but prices vary widely depending on location, type of app, features, and much, much more.

        To get a sense of what hiring an app developer might cost, decide first what kind of software you need. In general, app developers charge hourly fees based on the language they’ll use to code the software. Freelancers cost less than large software development firms, typically charging an average of:

        • Basic C development: $75-$150 per hour.
        • Front-end web development: $50-$75 per hour.
        • Back-end web development: $75-$150 per hour.
        • API development: $75-$150 per hour.
        • Desktop app development: $30-$100 per hour.
        • Mobile app development: $30-$150 per hour.

        Larger software vendors charge much more, often as much as $300 to $400 per hour.
