App developers are similar to web developers in that they are professional and experienced software engineers. Unlike general web developers however, application developers are individuals who specialise solely in designing, building and developing software programmes known as apps or applications that are used to carry out a specific task or function. Most application developers will create a variety of different apps – including web apps to enhance or work with a business or organisation’s current website, mobile apps for commercial use and more complex business applications for in-house use – depending on their client’s specific requirements.
The vast majority of businesses and organisations that hire application specialists and developers do so for one of two reasons, they either need commercial applications for web or mobile use or they need a custom-built business application to use internally. Developing apps for commercial use requires a different set of skills than more complex development projects such as business applications, so the services provided by a UK app developer will depend on their experience and expertise. You can find out more about working with an app developer and the various services that they provide by taking a look at our extensive App Developer Article Library.
What type of Applications Developer should your Business work with?
All sorts of businesses and organisations can benefit greatly from working with professional applications developers, but to find out the type of app and application development services that your business or organisation will benefit from you first need to carefully analyse your specific application development needs and requirements.
If your business needs an application to use in-house to improve processes and functions or streamline work tasks, you will benefit more from working with an app developer who create custom applications and software. On the other hand you may require a simple web or mobile app to be integrated into your website for commercial use, so may need to work with an application designer or app development consultant.
If you are completely new to creating an app the various uses of applications, working with an experienced apps development expert who will take you through an extensive process of evaluating your requirements and recommending appropriate solutions will be the best option for your business.
You may even be looking to hire a new applications developer or development expert to work with, either due to your business or organisation outgrowing your current service providers, or if you are simply looking for more affordable alternatives. If this is the case you will need to consider transferring the ongoing management and development of any current applications as well as anything that you think can be improved upon to a new app developer.
How to select the right Application Designers and Developers
The development of applications, particularly custom business applications that are being created specifically for use in-house in your business or organisation, is a very complex process. When selecting an app developer to work with it’s vitally important to choose a developer who has particular experience of creating applications for businesses or organisations that are similar to yours. In order to properly create applications that will improve the internal functions and processes of your business, your chosen app developer needs to understand the sector that your business operates in as well as what your primary business development goals are. Similarly, if you require commercial web or mobile applications, you need to choose a suitably skilled app developer who specialises in the development of commercial applications.
After identifying your business or organisation’s current need for application development services from an appropriate development service provider, you will be able to select an app developer who will meet these needs by visiting our App Developer Supplier Directory.

UK App Developers or International Ones?
Like many other types of software development specialists, it’s possible to hire both UK app developers and developers other than app developers UK. Whether or not UK apps developers would be more suitable for your company’s development project depends on your individual needs and requirements, primarily on your budget and the individual specifications of your application.
For many companies who are looking to invest less in their application development project, outsourcing to developers other than apps developers UK is usually more cost-effective than hiring a UK app developer, particularly if the app or application they need will be a generic commercial one. Some businesses however will find it more valuable and worthwhile to work with UK app developers especially if they need a specific application for use by locally based or UK users because app developers UK will provide a much more applicable service. For most UK companies, working with an developer UK is the easiest and simplest choice.
