In the meantime, how do you hire the right mobile developers for your project?
Look at the Mobile Developer's Portfolio
This is not a website that the developer builds on a whim when they want to be creative. Because apps are so expensive to produce, they are limited by the client's budget most of the time, as well as the client's creativity. You need to talk to your developers and make sure they have the vision and the skills you need, especially if yours is a complicated app.
After you've looked at the mobile developer's portfolio and talked to them, you should meet their creative team.
Meet the Creative Team
When you contact the typical mobile developer, your first point of contact is going to be a salesperson. This is great for understanding services and contracts, but it's not great for understanding how the creative team works, and that's what really matters in these relationships. Before you sign a contract, meet the creative team to make sure they're on the same page.
Unfortunately, many people don't take the time to do this. Often, contracts state that if a project turns out to be much more complicated then what the company originally thought it would be, they reserve the right to raise the price. Now, the client is stuck and bound to a contract they should not have signed before meeting the creative team and understanding exactly how they operate.
Try to Get a Contract Based on Milestones Rather than Percentages
ATIMI offers milestone-based contracts, but most mobile developers don't. Most firms will ask for something like 30% upfront, 40% half-way through, and the last 30% upon delivery of the app. Basing the contract on milestones is much better for the client.
For example, to get to the first wireframes should be a certain amount of dollars. If you find once you get to a milestone that you don't like how the creative team is working, but you want to keep the wireframes, you just pay to that point and take the wireframes with you.
You can do this at every milestone. As a paying client, you need to know when things are going to be delivered, and prices should be based on those deliverables.
