When you’re looking to build an MVP and later a production mobile app as a small team, the task at hand may seem daunting. You’ll obviously want to focus on the actual mobile app design and the UI, which by itself is no small feat. On top of that, you’ll need to figure out how to develop and release the app for both iOS and Android platforms. This is exactly the situation I faced as a solo-founder and developer of DealCheck – a cross-platform app that helps real estate investors analyze potential properties to buy.
It would have been impossible for a one-man team to build and release an iOS, Android and online application without leveraging existing technology-as-a-service solutions, which can drastically speed up development and allow small teams to accomplish big projects.
