Things to Remember:


The design of an App matters a lot because an App's theme attracts a lot of visitors. As we know that the first impression is the last impression, so choosing a design is a very crucial task. Hiring Top Mobile App development company for designing an app will ease your efforts of continuous checking with services they are providing and how much benefit they are for increasing the success rate of your App.

Payment Gateway: 

The most important thing that must be viewed prior to launching an App. Digital payment methods have become a lot easier to work within the past decade. Choosing a proper Payment Gateway enables to make payments directly from your app and also Facilitates users to pay directly using their credit cards and debit cards. Keeping an open option is always good, so another option of cash payment is add on to such application.

As both of our projects are from the Middle East, we prefer to use PayPal and PayFort. PayFort is available for merchants in United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, and Qatar.

In-App Chat Experience:

Chat is one of the most important features which connect professionals and customers on a single platform and creates a very healthy communication channel between both parties. A third party chat enabler which can be integrated easily with apps and web can be used to create that experience. But then there is no guarantee that this third-party app will work successfully. So, instead of having developed your own built in-house chat will help a lot. There are many frameworks you can use to create an in-house chat.

Cost & Time:

The last question always is about pricing and time span. Well, It takes a little bit broad time span as the app comes with various complexities and layers and costing of such app approximately comes around 15,000 to 20,000 USD.
