2. What was the idea behind starting this organization?
MAD doesn't only mean My Apps Development; it also means MAKE A DIFFERENCE. The idea behind the venture was to assist growing start-ups to have a better reach for their business with a mobile application at the Best Price.
My Apps Development was established, when India’s start-up culture was being promoted by the government. In just over a year, a lot of new companies have come up with brilliant ideas that have led to the betterment of society. We have joined hands with such Start-ups and do our bit by helping them, staying true to the motto – “Make A Difference.”

3. What are the services you offer to your clients?
4. What is your company’s business model–in house team or third-party vendors / outsourcing?
We mostly take up projects that can be completed by our in-house team. In some rare cases, there are situations when we do get a project lead but due to the technology involved or some other reasons, it can’t be fulfilled. This is when we decide to outsource the project.
5. After service is a necessary part of development. How do you provide customer support to your client?
As part of our after- service involved we provide three months of code warranty. The warranty period lasts three months after the Launch of Mobile Apps or Website. It covers any issues relating to the code, such as bugs or errors which are resolved by our team at no extra cost.
This model has worked out quiet well for us, as Clients have more trust in us before awarding the project. Many of our clients have appreciated us for this and have returned with more projects for us.
6. Give your opinions on how far this app revolution can make a difference in the technology world?
In my opinion, the tremendous rise in Smartphone users has shifted the gears of how businesses work. Now every business from small to large is not just looking for an online presence via website but also thinking of their presence in pockets of people via mobiles.
This has caused the big players in the tech biz to think of innovative ways to contribute to this revolution by introducing newer, faster and more efficient ways of App development. A recent example of this would be the introduction of Flutter.
7. Define your future prospective and vision regarding new technologies like wearable and IoT apps?
With things rapidly evolving in the market and people becoming more aware of such technologies by accepting the devices like Alexa, Google Home, I believe the future is here. We are ready to up our game in terms of Mobile App Development by providing the clients with the most trending features in the market. In my opinion, to have a stronghold in the market we need to keep upgrading and exploring newer avenues.
Our team has started exploring the IoT and AI segment. We have begun by integrating the AI technologies like chat bots and auto-generated replies for mails into our recently developed Apps and Websites. Moving forward we wish to explore more areas like Augmented Virtual Reality, Data Analytics and Blockchain, for which some of our young developers have begun training. The best part about our team is the zeal to learn new technologies for which we have special workshops held. In the upcoming months we will be ready to take on projects involving these tech savvy features.
8. What are the key factors that you consider before deciding the cost of a mobile application?
In order to decide the cost of the mobile app development, we must narrow down on the following details:
1. The technology which will be used in Development
2. The functionalities to be included in the App
3. The number of resources that will be employed for the project
4. Complexity of the UI/UX design
5. The Testing process that needs to be adopted (Manual/Automation)
9. What are the challenges you see in the outsourcing industry and how much you’re prepared to face those challenges?
When we speak of outsourcing projects, the biggest concern is quality of work. As a company trying to win over outsourced projects, we try to portray our quality right from the start. I truly believe that the only way to stand out in the crowd is to provide TOP QUALITY at the BEST PRICE. There is no shortcut to gaining a large market share besides this.
10. What latest technologies and tools you’re planning to implement for mobile app development?
We are planning to cater to the current demand of the market in terms of React Native and Flutter App development.
