Using apps is now part of our daily lives. We rely on our smart phones and applications for almost any aspect and activity of our usual day.

Every day a new mobile application is being uploaded into Google Play and iTunes hoping to attract users and downloads. Mobile development outsourcing companies are competing in ideas for new and interesting apps.

But mobile applications development are no longer just for big name brands only. Freelancers and developers from all over the world are trying to come up with the best idea of an app.

With more than 1.5 million apps available on the Android platform and more than 1.4 million apps available for the Apple Store is very hard to make a decision when it comes to download an app.

In the sea full of app how can you choose the right one?

There are some things to look for when choosing an app. Here is a list with some steps that you need to go through before you download any application on your smart phone.

Platform support

Before you download any app make sure that is available on both IOS and Android platforms. Even if you are an Apple fan you have to keep in mind the possibility that in the future you will want to change phones and platforms. This way if you ever change your phone you will still be able to access your account details without having to start from scratch.

Go Online

Do your homework and see if the app that you want to download has a website. There you can find more information about the app and the developers, read FAQs or even chat with the developers.

Cloud storage

How much storage space are you allotted for apps?
Most of the big cloud storage players gives you a certain amount of space for free, but nearly all of them have some sort of limitations. Having in mind that the most space on your phone and cloud storage are full with photos, videos and files you must consider the limited space available for new apps.
