We gathered following information from all the companies on MobileDeveloper.net in order to get an idea about their expertise and past clientele. In addition, we also used the data from the company profiles on MobileDeveloper.net
Here are more details about data points we used to list top app development companies -
- Apps Featured in App Stores - We looked at the apps added by companies in their profile as well as once they submitted through the form we sent. We checked on App Annie whether the app they submitted was actually featured in iTunes or Google Play stores. We also looked at the ranking of the app overtime and the top most rank it received.
- Awards and Recognitions - We looked at the awards and recognitions received by companies from various blogs and organizations. We looked at how valued those awards are by community and their popularity. For example, if a company received Apple Design Award, it was given more importance over an award from a popular blog.
- Latest Tech - We looked at the wearable apps built by companies. We looked at how actively the companies get involved with new technologies and build apps using those technologies.
- Open Source Leadership - We looked at the Open Source libraries published by the company on GitHub and elsewhere. We also looked at how useful those open source libraries has been for the community.
- Content Leadership - We looked at company blog for the quality of the content and the frequency with which company publishes contents. We specifically looked for the technical blog posts and how helpful those blog posts were for the developer community. Companies that published blogs on cutting edge technology were given more points.
- Past Clients Visibility - For this criteria we looked at whether companies have a list of past clients on MobileDeveloper.net or on their website. We also looked at whether companies have testimonials from clients on website and case studies on how they work with clients.
