How much does it cost to make an app?

Written by on Wednesday, December 16th 2015

This is one of the biggest questions these days. The best answer was probably given by Vlad Lokshin, who compared the cost of a making app to the cost of having a car. This comparison is not to be taken literally of course, but he makes a good point: for apps, just like with cars, you can choose the standard model, with no particular comfort or gadgets, or you can add extra features. And the bottom line is: the more things you want, the higher the price! That is why we couldn't stress enough the importance of defining your concept well, before you even start developing your app. Knowing beforehand what you want inside your application will help with budgeting. The price of your app will indeed depend on what your project entails and how you want to achieve it.

10 Instagram Dos and Don'ts for Businesses

Written by on Monday, December 7th 2015

Users are increasingly turning to Instagram over other social platforms. Why? For starters, the content on Instagram is more universal than elsewhere. Also, it tends be more anonymous than Facebook. Although the irony isn’t lost on us that Facebook bought over Instagram for $1 billion… 

With that being said Instagram remains a very appealing outlet, especially for businesses looking to grow their brand and especially their brand’s image. Instagram is perfect to help make your brand identifiable, as long as you follow a few guidelines of course.

Because if social networks praise spontaneity, with Instagram in particular, when it comes down to marketing, a lot of thought actually goes into what is posted by brands. Images with the most reach are often carefully arranged to fit trending criteria (even when they have an effortless feel), with a clever caption to boot!

So, if you want to become a master of Instagram, here’s a few Instagram DOS and DON’TS to get your business on the right track. Read on!

What is the Future of Social Apps?

Written by on Monday, November 30th 2015

What a world we live in. Not too long ago, all cellphones could do was make calls, send out a few lines of text, and play simple, monochromatic games like Snake (though, let’s be honest – no mobile game has ever been better). Then, in 2007, came Apple's iPhone – this weird, newfangled device that many people initially scoffed at – and the entire mobile industry has never been the same. Thanks to the popularity of the iPhone, countless companies followed suit and soon rode the touchscreen smartphone wave, which pushed what Apple was initially going for into several bold, new directions. 

Nowadays, people are more connected than ever. The proliferation of smartphones with advanced mobile internet capabilities has made sure of that. And with the ability to easily and quickly download countless social apps with tons of rich media features, getting in touch with friends, family or colleagues has become more than just typing out simple messages. 

You can share photos, videos, life events, play games with friends, chat in real time, engage in video calls, and so much more. With a plethora of powerful social features already at any mobile device owner's disposal, one has to wonder: has the envelope been pushed as far as technologically possible? Where is all this headed?
