You should be completely aware about the process they follow to develop a mobile app. This will avoid any unnecessary chaos at the end.
Ask them how much time it would take and what are the possible challenges that they might face while developing the app. And if they have enough resources to handle these challenges?
Another plus point of understanding the process is, you will get the idea if the company is professional enough or not.

5. Do you know about my company and my audience?
This is a very important part that most companies miss. If you are planning to hire a company to develop an app for you, it should understand the workings of your business and what audience you want to target.
If the company you are looking to hire is not able to understand your way of working they will not be able to give you the results you are looking for.
6. Can I meet your team?
Before finalizing the company, you also need to be sure that the company has a good team to handle all the challenges.
Meeting the team is important because you have to be confident that the team has full knowledge about the latest technologies. Ask about how much experience the team has, how many projects they have handled earlier and how many team members will be working on your project.
7. What is your approach on user experience?
User experience is one of the most important parts of any app. Everything from the launch and success of the app to generating revenue from it depends upon how the user feels while using your app. So you need to understand what will be the strategy of the designers regarding the user experience.
The designers working on the user experience should be aware with both the ease of using the app and what is in the trend to be able to give you the best result.
8. What will be the mode of communication?
If you are planning to hire an app development company, there will be several times when the company needs to get some information from you, or you might need to talk to them about the progress of the app.
It is always a good option to decide in advance what will be the moe of communication. The most preferable mode should be via emails, because everything is in written. Avoid using any telephonic conversation to finalize things.
9. What will be the mode and time period for the progress report of the app?
Developing an app is not an easy process. It may take weeks and sometimes even months to get the app ready for launch. You should fix a time period for getting the report about the progress of the app. Weekly or bi-weekly reports are suggested because that will give you the insights of what stage the app development has reached.
10. What post launch services do you provide?
Last but a very important question. Launching the app is only half the battle won. There is a lot of work after the launch. And for this you have to know in advance what maintenance services the company can provide after the completion and hand over of the app.
Making an app for your business has become a necessity for every business now. If you have not got it ready by now, you are already late.
