Mobile App Development Industry Series – Interview with Venkatesh C R, CEO – Dot Com Infoway


Dot Com Infoway provides 360° Mobile & Web solutions that turn your ideas into world-class products and help you reach your target customer. One of the early entrants in the IT sector in India, Dot Com Infoway was incepted to provide the national market with cutting-edge technological solutions.

We serve B2B & B2C companies with the aid of our multi-channel approach and focus on delivering outstanding results. Our internet marketing services deliver exceptional outcomes & exceed expectations.

1. What does your mobile app development company do?

Dot Com Infoway mainly offers an assortment of web and mobile development solutions. To complement this, we also include app marketing, digital marketing, app consultation, UI/UX design, and we also develop our own apps and software to address deficits in various crucial fields like education and healthcare. That said, I think we’re really more befitting of the label “IT company” than a mobile app development company.

2. Why are enterprises adapting to mobility?

Simply put, it’s the way forward. Why wouldn’t they want to adapt to mobility if it boosts their productivity? Why wouldn’t they use technology that uplifts other vital aspects like responsiveness and customer experience? It also can’t be denied that they also get to cut costs substantially with their help. Mobility, in short, has since become the key to business success, at least, in these contemporary times.

3. Why do app developers prefer iOS despite Android’s market leadership?

From a financial viewpoint, there’s arguably also still more profit potential in the iOS platform. Studies have already proven that Apple users tend to want to purchase apps more than their Android counterparts, and this still rings true today. iOS developers tend to earn more than Android developers because of this. It’s also where most enterprise app development is concentrated. And there’s almost always money in places where businesses proliferate.

4. What is the average budget of the mobile apps you develop?

India is a very favourable hub for app development finance-wise because businesses and individuals normally pay less than half the price of Western developers. The average budget of apps we develop is usually $62,500, which is roughly more than 4,500,000 INR. There’s a lot of variables in this, obviously, and we can definitely develop for far less.

5. Which software and tools do you mostly use while developing apps?

Since we’re largely a mobile app development company, we mostly use programming languages instead of the actual software. Native Android and iOS languages we use are Java, Kotlin, Swift, and Objective-C, to cite a few. For cross-platform, we rely on React Native and Flutter.

However, since app development spans numerous other subdisciplines and technologies like design and cloud, we also rely on various software to get them done. For design, we use Adobe Creative Cloud, Sketch, and Invision. Cloud services we often avail include Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Amazon Web Services. Sorry if I’m not citing everything, as we just use too many digital third-party software and services that might only take up a big portion of this interview.

6. Do you think Augmented Reality apps are the future? Why?

They are definitely part of what to look forward to in the future. I’m going to say that they’re going to revolutionize a lot of major fields like marketing and gaming. The reason is that technology’s changes are nothing short of revolutionary. They are totally unprecedented, and with proper application, they can be moulded to fit right into our day-to-day activities, whether it’s for business or fun. AR spices up our reality without erasing it from the picture, and that’s something that its cousin VR can’t quite achieve.

7. What does the popularity of games like Pokemon Go mean for the app development industry?

The beauty of Pokemon Go is that it fulfilled a fantasy that a lot of people around the world have been dreaming of: catching Pokemon in the “real” world. I think the app’s ensuing popularity was inevitable because of this, and I believe the app development industry should realize AR’s potential in fulfilling other such fantasies. Stretching out what present-day technology can offer so people will be able to realize them, so to speak.

8. Is augmented reality (AR) just a recent fad in mobile gaming or does it have real staying power?

If we’re going to look at Pokemon Go’s user stats even after COVID-19 spread worldwide, it’s not hard to see that it’s still enjoying millions of active users worldwide. Why? Because Niantic was able to smoothly transition the game into an indoors-friendly one without taking away the game’s AR aspect. This just goes to show that companies can actively modify AR to address pressing challenges, and these are certainly good signs of staying power for any kind of technology. The AR experience, for me, is also just too unique to think otherwise.
