Feedback summary: 

JatApp’s innovative suggestions yielded a sophisticated, elegant app that helps weSpark stay competitive on the market. With 5,000 downloads a month after release, the app gains new users daily. The team’s product-oriented methodology and transparent communication made for organized workflow.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for a startup located in Tennessee. During our eight years on the market, we’ve completed three successful social projects; two mobile apps and a web platform. I'm the marketing director of our latest project, a dating app called “weSpark.”

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JatApp?

When dating apps were at a high point in the market, our initial idea was to create a fancy, simple, social networking platform. We needed a trusted and professional team to help us with the design and development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JatApp developed the final version of our iOS-only app. We explained our vision for the final product we wanted, and the whole team gave recommendations for improvement. Their input helped simplify the user experience and make the design more attractive. As a basic dating application, facets of work included user profile creation, login, and data storage. GPS location lets users limit search results to “future friends” who are available nearby. The chat feature allows users to connect and communicate.

The team was very product-oriented, and efficiently completed the product planning, UI/UX, design, and testing. The team used Objective C programming language to yield a native solution. A simple admin panel resolved a management issue we were experiencing, by organizing user data and deleting unnecessary information. During the launch stage, they helped us deliver the app to stores for release and purchase.

What is the team composition?

We worked primarily with four staff, namely, the UX senior developer, QA engineer, designer, and project manager. When we needed to create an admin panel, they provided additional support for backend development.

How did you come to work with JatApp?

We got a referral from one of our partners, who is JatApp’s international representative. Reading reviews by current experts helped solidify our decision to use their team. We held a couple of meetings with the lead via Skype and found we were nicely matched. They seemed talented and trustworthy, and we didn't want to spend excess time searching for a vendor. As a bonus, they offered great rates.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $50,000 for their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in September 2015 and had released the app by the end of the year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

JetApp's team carefully considered all our suggestions, and implemented our detailed specifications. All the metrics for the app were perfect. The team was impressively product oriented and gave us extensive and useful suggestions, rather than blindly following the specs. The app is user-friendly and looks professional with its fancy and elegant design. We had 5,000 downloads within the first month. Our number of users is increasing every day, and we’ve gotten many good reviews in the stores.

The market is very competitive right now, so we need to make some improvements to the design and functionality. Right now, we're considering refactoring and updating the app from the conditionality point of view. We're going to come back to the same team because we have great confidence in them.

How did JatApp perform from a project management standpoint?

Our daily communication was transparent and effective. We used Slack and had a special channel to contact the team directly. They’d always reply within five minutes, which was an impressive speed. Our PM spearheaded all facets of the project. He delegated effectively while managing his entire team, and they worked within deadlines. We divided the entire project into sprints and touched base with a developer after completing each one. Smooth collaboration helped them meet all our requirements for user experience and efficiency.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team has excellent project focus. I would work with them again because the majority of the team is fantastic at completing the job. JatApp’s developers were dedicated, creative, and product-oriented.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There's always something to improve. They could optimize all the work to meet their standards and consistently raise the bar. The tech field requires being on top of market trends as they emerge. JatApp could work on following and implementing newly available tools.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Arrange some meetings before starting work, and visit their office if possible. It's really important to be well-matched with your development team. Strong communication that conveys a solid understanding of your idea will help you achieve the best results possible.

Feedback summary: 

Despite a few hiccups with bugs in the earliest version of the iOS app, JatApp provided the exact services needed at the right price. Their employees’ friendliness made for an effective working relationship, and their consistent communication throughout the process made the end goals attainable.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the project manager for a mobile app startup that aims to simplify the laundry needs of college students, and I have been with the company since its foundation. I manage our small, in-house development team, as well as our relationship with our contractor, JatApp.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JatApp?

We needed to develop the solution to our audience’s problem from scratch. As a new startup, we had a well-formed idea and a clear understanding of our target audience, but we were on a limited budget. Our goal was to hire a contractor to develop a successful minimum viable product on the first try because we had neither the capital nor the time to make mistakes. We needed the MVP in order to secure investors. Ideally, we wanted a development shop that could provide us everything we needed from beginning to end, from design to prototyping to app development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JatApp was in charge of the backend development for both our iOS and Android applications, both of which are already available in-store. Prior to engaging their services, we went through a month-long process of in-depth business analysis. After that, we passed along our research to JatApp and they took care of both the design and the prototyping of the iOS application. During that time, we reimagined our concept of the app with their assistance, since we had initially conceived of something quite different from their end prototype. It ended up being much better than we had expected.

Once all of that initial work was complete, they took care of developing the backend, as well as creating a very good admin panel before the first iOS app release. After that, they moved onto improving a second version of the iOS app and began work on developing the first Android version.

Both versions of the app are native to each respective system. Some key features that we needed them to incorporate were profile creation, a subscription model for payment, an internal rating system, and a progress update capability, among other things.

What is the team composition?

On JatApp’s side, we had one project manager, two iOS developers, two backend developers, the UI/UX designer, and one quality assessor.

How did you come to work with JatApp?

I found them initially through a Google search for companies that would fill our needs. I sent a request through the contact form on their website, and they got in touch with us to begin discussing our project.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent around US$60,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with JatApp in February 2017, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

So far, we have essentially been in beta testing mode. Our goals at the moment are finding more investors and perfecting our end products. The people who have been testing it for us, however, have given us a lot of positive feedback about the apps, and we have engaged a number of potential of investors based on our current MVPs. Any bugs that were identified during the testing stage, JatApp fixed free of charge, and the current versions are functional and bug-free.

How did JatApp perform from a project management standpoint?

Anytime that there were issues with the apps’ functionality, we would get in touch with our project manager at JatApp. Within one or two business days, the problem would be fixed. About once a week, we would have a quick phone call to check in on their status and progress. Otherwise, our primary communication was conducted through Slack, within which we expected both our and their teams to hold regular office hours and have a set amount of availability (usually between two to three hours a day).

What did you find most impressive about them?

What stood out upon our first contact with them was their friendly demeanor; I immediately liked the people with whom I was interacting. I also appreciated that they were always available to help assuage my concerns, which was aided by their pleasantness. The above was particularly impressive because of the physical distance between our two companies. We established a level of trust and an effective working relationship despite the fact that we have never met in person. Knowing that they would not simply disappear on us halfway through the project helped to create a flourishing working environment.

Also, at the earliest stage of our collaboration, they provided us with a number of initial services at no charge—such as business analysis and a few specific parts of design and prototyping—for which other companies would have billed us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would be beneficial for them to be more attentive to final testing before an app goes live. We had a few challenging moments when there was negative feedback from the very first users about some basic features of the app, or when the whole thing would crash altogether. JatApp should insist on taking as long as necessary to conduct final testing on any app, no matter how hard their client is pushing to be done as quickly as possible. Polish everything until there is nothing else that can be improved, and only then should the app go live.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Consider whether or not the development company is optimistic enough about your project. If they are optimistic, there’s a good chance that the development process will be productive and effective. It also helps if the company itself feels fresh and spirited. After having a few interactions with a company, you will be able to feel whether or not it will be the right working relationship for you and your company’s needs. At that point, you should commit to that particular collaboration – not because of the price or their expertise, but because of the personal relationship that you develop with those people.

Feedback summary: 

Users have left positive feedback and high ratings in the Google Play store. JatApp was very responsive and finished the project before the deadline. The success of the application has led to a long-term maintenance contract. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CTO of a VPN startup located in Nicosia, Cyprus. We have a 7-person team, including regional employees. Our product is aimed at enabling customers to always access internet pages or applications which may be prohibited in their region. We have focused on making the platform simple and stable so that people from all regions can use it without difficulty.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JatApp?

Their team helped us develop our project. It was my first project of this kind, and I had no experience in the area.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JatApp developed an Android and iOS application for us, as well as the web page which leads to the app store of each operating system. They handled everything from architecture to design improvements and backend development. They also helped improve our business strategy.

After deploying the first version of the app, JatApp has assigned an employee for support and for answering user questions. There is also an option for sending log files after being unable to connect to the VPN; the JatApp team can review those and find the cause of the problem.

How did you come to work with JatApp?

We had up to 10 interviews with different teams from Russia and India, sourced by the friends of our team members. We also received a reference from some friends based in Cyprus who had previously worked with JatApp on their product from the ground up. We understood that we could rely on JatApp since our friends had already launched their business.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost was around $50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with JatApp in May 2015. Developing both applications took around two months. There is a dedicated person helping with support, and we plan to continue the collaboration with JatApp. I have no intentions to change the team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We have recently launched the project, but people have been downloading our applications and we are growing. Most of the feedback on Google Play has been positive.

How did JatApp perform from a project management standpoint?

We mainly communicate through Slack. JatApp used a bug-tracking application internally during development.

They helped us a lot in terms of improving the application. We were always in contact, so, if one of our team members had a question, we could address it in a few hours. There were no significant problems, and we finished three or four days before the deadline.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their fast response time was important. We didn’t have any conflicts, and the process was smooth.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Constant development is the key to success. JatApp has a great team which does its job, and they understand how fast things change in this area.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

The internet is expanding all the time, so everyone needs to continue studying and improve their skills, in order to provide a better service.

Feedback summary: 

JatApp’s recommendations on things like backend architecture and UI brought the app to market successfully on both Google Play and the App Store. Communication with their project manager was easy and they showed flexibility. The team ultimately delivered above and beyond what was initially expected.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a Latvian startup developing an application which can track the locations of a user’s family members using GPS. Our ambitions are directed towards guaranteeing people’s safety and security on a 24/7 basis. I am the COO of the company, responsible for operations control, monetization strategies, as well as internal flows and business model development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JatApp?

We were building a mobile app for iOS and Android, along with a website. JatApp was brought in at the very early stages of the project.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

JatApp started the development on both our apps simultaneously, in order to save time and enable the monitoring of the user experience on Android and iOS at the same time. We created detailed specifications internally, listing all the development phases. We initially made a prototype and worked on technical specs and design at the same time.

GPS location tracking is the main functionality of the application. For example, when a user exceeds a set limit, their friends or parents will receive a notification. It needed to be accurate and run smoothly. It also has chat integration.

What is the team dynamic?

We worked with 2 iOS and 2 Android developers, a project manager, a designer, and QA testers from JatApp’s side. We only interacted with the project manager through chat; he communicated directly with the developers.

How did you come to work with JatApp?

We consider the app to be complex, and have spent a lot of time choosing the right people to build it, since accuracy was important to us. We met JatApp at a technical conference, and also spoke with other startups in order get feedback on their approach to software development.

We decided to go ahead with JatApp because they were project-oriented, and always adjusted to new solutions and functionality tricks during project discussions. We looked at 3 development companies in total during the conference.

How much have you invested with them?

[Confidential] We have been working with JatApp for almost 2 years, which is indicative of how much we’ve spent.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with JatApp at the end of 2015. The project has been completed, and the app is available on Google Play and the Apple Store. We have decided to adopt a white-label monetization approach, and continue to work on improvements and new functionalities.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

JatApp was able to address all our desires from a technology standpoint. All its metrics are perfect, as is the design and app logic they created for us. We are not a tech-savvy team, and we needed some recommendations on elements like backend architecture.

We initially targeted families and kids, but later decided to expand the audience to colleagues and friends. This required a drastic change in interface, but we were able to do it, and saw the impact on installs almost right away. This change was done at JatApp’s insistence, and has allowed us to attract more users.

How did JatApp perform from a project management standpoint?

They brought a set of tools which we used during the development process for sharing code. These included Crashlytics for code and bug sharing, as well as Slack and Skype for direct communication. The project was divided into milestones for our convenience, and we tracked builds from our sides. We always had a chance to communicate improvement suggestions with the project manager.

During the course of the project, we found that we needed to add more functionalities and features. Since the specifications had been agreed to and were static, we communicated additions with the project manager, who showed flexibility. His English level made the communication easy.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It was important for us to choose the right company, since we were hesitant in the beginning about taking an outsourced approach. A native solution selection would guarantee the perfect performance of the UI/UX, making the app simple to use and professional-looking. JatApp was our only partner in this project—their designers worked on our logo and the design of our website and application.

The quality of the final application speaks to the success and productivity of our collaboration with JatApp. They’ve also helped us with business analysis when we adopted a white label approach. It had not been in our plans from the beginning, but we are working on monetizing it this way.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We are a meticulous and perfectionist group, and therefore believe there is always something to improve and optimize. Maintaining the same standards within JatApp would be ideal. We always want to reduce the budget as much as possible, as well.

Feedback summary: 

Through JatApp’s results-focused approach, the platform has demonstrated crash-free performance and attracted a steadily growing user base. The team’s competitive price point, helpful suggestions, and around-the-clock availability continue to impress. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of operations for an educational platform that started a few years ago. We’re trying to create a user-friendly platform that will provide any messaging services needed by students to simplify their work together. From the students’ side, our platform allows them to find the right tutor in order to assist with their education issue. From the tutors’ side, the platform lets them find clients who are looking for their knowledge, allowing them to earn money in a transparent way. Our company has 30 or more employees. Our head office is located in Valletta, Malta.

I’m also in charge of communicating with our development team and the project manager at JatApp. Overall, I’m involved in 90% of our corporation’s contractor dealings. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with JatApp?

We needed to find the right development company but had no prior experience working with the development teams. Basically, this was our first digital project. We found different development companies in Europe while looking for a team to develop our product from scratch. We talked to so many people who are providing the same services, so finding the firm that could propose the right design solution was a challenge. We needed to love their vision for our product’s user experience [UX].

We already had some designs in mind, but they certainly weren’t perfect. There was a lot of space for improvement. We needed someone to handle the development of our web platform and backend, as well as the creation of the design concept and the admin panel. Those were our top priorities. Now, we are working on an iOS and Android application. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

First, they created the prototype. We hadn’t planned that part because we didn’t know it had to be done. So, we got in touch with our future project manager and focused more on the visual aspect of our project. Once the prototyping stage was done, JatApp created the design concept, which took quite some time. Our business wasn’t ready for a change, but we had to be more flexible. At that point, we wanted the best. The CEO of our company and I had to adapt and rely on JatApp’s opinions about the design and business logic of the future product.

We successfully went through the business analysis and eventually created both a user-friendly product as well as a profitable business model. After we created the prototype and design, JatApp developed the product. Content developers were working on the website, and we had our admin panel developed. We then moved to quality assurance [QA] testing. We received reports that our product is bug-free. Once we were fairly satisfied with the results of our bug testing, we started discussing the development of our mobile applications.

How did you come to work with JatApp?

We found JatApp through a web search for mobile app development studios. We went to their website and contacted them through a form. We spent time talking to a lot of other companies before settling on five with whom to discuss technical points of the project. From that selection, we chose JatApp.

How much have you invested with them?

We have spent between $120,000 and $130,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started our partnership with JatApp in the fall of 2016, and we’re still working on the product. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We are following some metrics for our first users. For us, the main indicator of quality is getting good feedback from our users. The people who are using the product at this point are more than satisfied with its functionality. Additionally, the number of unique users that use the product every day and the number of repeat users have been growing every day. Our customers continue to recommend our product to others.

We were very strict about the QA testing. We expected each new build of the product to be bug-free. We did not let our developers continue to the next stage of work unless we were 100% satisfied with the existing part. After the first release of the product, we had only a few crashes.

The quality of the code is fair. I’m not a developer myself, but based on my impression of how the product works, I’ve noticed no delays or crashes, which is a good sign. I’m very satisfied with the way JatApp developed our product.

How did JatApp perform from a project management standpoint?

Having a project manager is essential for this kind of project. The project manager on JatApp’s side is always in touch with my colleagues and me. We created a Slack channel where we receive progress updates and exchange messages at any time, on any day. Our service manager made sure that the developers share suggestions with us. I always know what to expect from the next milestone. I like their approach.

From a financial point of view, we always know how much we’ll be charged for the next milestone and what functionality to expect. They have the perfect project management approach.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve appreciated having regular communication with the team and the project manager. The designer was also very helpful. The web developers stayed in touch with us on Slack. We had access to our team 24/7. If we didn’t like something or had questions, I could write to them directly and receive feedback within a few hours. That allowed me to provide reports about the progress to my boss. Without that rapid communication from JatApp, my role wouldn’t be possible.

Also, their developers were extremely helpful. We had no prior experience with development at all since our focus is on the business part. The people from JatApp took care of everything, even things like creating a task force for unit resources and setting up a server account. Those minor things would have taken me so long. I’m not sure if they charged us for those items or not, but they’ve made a very, very positive impression.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They have incredible pricing and perform reliably, so there’s nothing that they should improve. Everything has gone smoothly.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a mobile solutions company.

What is your position?

I am the Chief Executive Officer of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with JatApp?

I had a great idea for an app. After researching the market, I found only one possible competitor for it, so I started looking for a company that would help me with the development process, including market research, the app development itself, and future maintenance.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

JatApp used PHP and MySQL for the backend portion of the app, and Java for the frontend. We used Bitbucket for tracking the source code.

How did you come to work with JatApp?

I was looking for a long-term partnership with the right company. I researched the market and evaluated a dozen companies. It was a long and demanding process. I was looking for a partnership with a company that I could always rely on. I felt that JatApp was on the same page with me and I'm glad that I decided to move forward with them.

No, there isn't. I'm pleased that I found a company that fits my needs and is prepared to listen to my ideas. For now, everything has been great.

We started out with an idea which JatApp expanded. This is something that impressed me about them. They've also provided a lot of design concepts to choose from, which was amazing.
