The challenges in the mobile app development

Mobile app development for startups has its own challenges to overcome. Here are 3 common examples of how we deal with them.

  • Multi-platform support

    Mobile apps do not have a single environmental target. Most mobile apps target multiple devices, dealing with various technical specs, OS versions, and form factors

  • Implementation of CI/CD

    Because of the strong business motivation to deliver mobile applications to market quickly, mobile app development projects typically have extremely aggressive timelines

  • Launching in app stores

    The app store adds an additional asynchronous step because the development team cannot deploy app updates on demand. Even for critical bug fixes, new app versions go through the submission and review process.

What technologies and tools do we use?

App frameworks Laravel NodeJS Express
Databases MySQL Redis MongoDB

Server Nginx

SpdLoad developed the CRM dashboard of the B2B2C marketplace using ReactJS. The team has significantly expanded its functionality, so we decided to collaborate on other projects as well.

Founder and CEO MyWishApp Ukraine

I am very pleased with the work with the SpdLoad team. It seems that the Ukrainian software development market is very large, but it is very difficult to find a company that combines quality, speed and price at the highest level. SpdLoad is a company that always gives more than you expect. I recommend this team.

Dmitriy Sosunov
Founder Smartpolka Russia

Their team’s work led to a working app that’s begun generating its first sales already in nine locations. Collaborating with SpdLoad was issue-free thanks to their ability to provide frequent status updates and willingness to fix issues and make everything work properly.

Andrei Kandratsenia
Project manager Connexzion Cyprus

The work has been high quality from the SdpLoad team, leading to continued projects between the teams. Their useful insights even outside of their scope of work make them a great addition to the project. Customers can expect a knowledgeable, communicative team.
