Don’t forget quality assurance
Many brag about senior developers but forget to mention quality assurance. That’s where they try to save money. We don’t.
What truly sets us apart are our QA engineers and processes. Enterprise-grade software requires quality assurance at the highest level.
Here’s why our QA works so well:
- Code reviews
- Code guidelines
- Test automation
- UI tests
- Code quality tools
- Unit tests
Our passion for quality assurance also led us to build our own crash and bug reporting tool – Shake →.

This video demonstrates exactly that:
Other examples include:
- When Apple removed Fling’s app from the App Store, we jumped on a plane to London the very next day to work 72 hours, non-stop. As our CEO said at the time: “I couldn’t be prouder of the team for making Fling even better than before, especially under such pressure.”
- We flew to Dusseldorf to present an app to the Vodafone tech team in person.
- We’ve prioritized CVs for a new addition to a client’s in-house iOS team. DECODE’s engineers sorted through them, analyzed the code and suggested the best candidates for the interview.
As for our team, we have weekly dev Scrums, daily stand-ups, all the people are together in one office, and we actively use Slack, Skype, Google Hangouts, GitHub, Bitbucket and more…
We like to automate everything to reduce human error whenever possible. Being able to implement sustainable continuous integration workflow is very important so we can deliver new versions regularly and often, ensuring there’s no regression and everything works as intended.
We have written multiple articles about this topic available to read here:
We are used to working with big brands such as Metaswitch (a Microsoft company), Royal Caribbean, AT&T and Asseco SEE, so we understand what high-quality and carrier grade deliverables mean.
We even developed our own software product (www.shakebugs.com) that helps big companies in their mobile development process.
This varies based on many elements including app platforms (iOS, Android or both), app complexity, feature list, business logic, developer team location, native app vs. cross-platform app development, cloud infrastructure, etc.
The cost of an app depends upon the number of features or customizations needed, timelines for app development and experience of the team or company you are hiring. It is always a good idea to ask companies for a ballpark quote so that you can compare the different options you have regarding cost and quality.
A basic mobile app for 1 platform could cost between $30,000 – $50,000
A medium-complexity mobile app for 1 platform, $50,000 – $150,000
A complex mobile app for 1 platform could cost more than $150,000
Based on our experience in the last 10 years, we’ve found out that working in dedicated teams gives the best result. That means one team working solely on your project. Creating a profitable and production-ready software product requires more than just coding. It needs a team to be fully involved, and able to change direction along the way based on market feedback.
Yes. In today’s environment, being agile is one of the most important things. Being agile doesn’t mean a lack of processes, but rather the opposite. Having good efficient processes and a strong working methodology helps us to be agile and at the same time organized and predictable.
