What was the scope of their involvement?
They developed a native Android version of our iOS app, using an API and some designs supplied by us. They made some tweaks to the designs, but they didn’t fully modify them; the majority of this project was development. They had some good ideas related to the differences in user behavior between iOS and Android, which they used to translate our app in a nice way, but they didn’t build any features particular to this version.
They’re fully in charge of app maintenance. We send them new requests every two weeks, and they’re fast in developing them.
The app has a longer than normal signup flow that requires users to fill a questionnaire and upload documents. On the other side, there is a dashboard where people can log in, contact support, and perform a lot of other actions.
What is the team composition?
We worked with five people from their team on this project, including a product owner and three developers. I was mainly in contact with two of them.
How did you come to work with App’n’roll?
I approached around five providers at the time, both local and international. I sent each one a small test that required them to build a login screen and other small items. App’n’roll was the only one able to do it within the time scope, and to figure out the small quirks I’d left for them. Our first contact with them was through a common partner.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent around $20,000 on this first project with them. The overall cost so far is around $50,000. We’ve had an ongoing collaboration for the last one and a half years, with weekly invoices from App’n’roll.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with them in February 2017. The Android app was launched around April of the same year.
