“Delivering high-quality code”With NIX, I have broken some of my own rules of team composition with respect to the ratio of FTE and 3rd party engineers. I have some teams that are more than 50% NIX because the code coverage, quality, and velocity coming out from the NIX developers are very good. Delivering high quality code in a predictable manner has built trust and confidence with my management/full-time employees.

FAQ on Custom Mobile Application Development
01 What is custom mobile app development?
Custom application development is the process of designing, engineering and releasing a unique app for mobile devices in accordance with specific business, technical and design requirements. Unlike off-the-shelf solutions, custom apps are built to satisfy a specific customer’s need in a particular way.
02 Is custom app development worth it?
In the most scenarios custom mobile apps are absolutely worth it. In very rare cases when you need a typical app, with a simple functionality for a short period of time (one month max) you should look for a white-label solution or consider not building an app at all.
03 Could a mobile-friendly website substitute an app?
No. Average US adults spend only 12% of their mobile internet time using a browser, and the rest of the time within apps. Moreover, applications allow users to be in the client’s pocket permanently, improve retention, decrease ad budget for re-acquisition, and take analytics to the next level.
04 How long does it take to develop a custom mobile app?
The fair answer is: it depends on requirements and resources available. According to BusinessOfApps, on average it takes:
– 1-3 months for MVP with basic functionality, simple design and a back-end;
– 4-8 months for mandatory functions, API integrations, advanced UX/UI, and server performance;
-9+ months for additional functionality and special features.
05 How much does it cost to build a custom mobile app?
The fair answer is: it depends on requirements, project hourly estimation and developers rate.
According to Clutch:
– App MVP could be from $15,000 to $50,000;
– A meaningful app is between $100,000 and $500,000.
