The idea of a ready to use and deploy framework, while sounds enticing and easy on pocket, it doesn’t come sans issues. And more often than not, the issues that come attached with White Label Solutions are too big to ignore.
Either Develop an App from the Scratch, aka Custom App Development or Use a Readymade Platform aka White Label App Development.
In this article, we will be looking into the concept of What Label Apps and validate how they are not as business friendly as they seem.
How are White Label Mobile Apps Developed
There are two ways for white label app development. The white label web applications can be developed where:
1. The white label mobile app builders reuse the backend code but alter the frontend code to make it look different.
2. The second is, where an app is developed with a fixed set of features and sold to A, B, and C companies with the freedom to add or edit features. This is mostly used by companies which have a Software-as-a-Service model.
What Service Do We Offer at Appinventiv?
At Appinventiv, we focus on our Mobile Application Development Company in Dubai that suite on Custom App Development.
We believe in developing apps from scratch. Straight from ideation to deployment, everything is done by us after understanding the exact business requirement that varies from project to project.
We understand that there are some legitimate white label app development benefits such as – Low white label app development cost, shorter time to market, and less maintenance efforts. But we place app quality and brand voice on a greater pedestal, which makes us choose Custom App Development as our suite of service.
There are a number of reasons that make us Custom Mobile App Development Evangelists –
1. Intact Brand Image
Even when your app belongs to the same category as that of hundreds of the other similar apps in the stores, what makes yours different from the rest is the fact that your app is a reflection of your idea. Something that reflects even when you offer the same set of features as the other apps in the domain.
When you invest in a white label service and solution, you lose out the chance to have an app that is an extension of your brand.
2. Real Time Update
When the control of the app development process is in your hand from the scratch, you don’t have to rely on a vendor to make changes in the app design and framework.
With custom app development, we give our clients the freedom to extend their app to other platforms or add and remove certain features according to what they think would best represent their idea.
3. The Power to Decide your Tech Stack
In the end, the biggest and most crucial advantage that you can get out of Custom App Development is that you get to decide the tech stack your mobile app would be based on. Knowing what tech stack to use is the recipe to a mobile app that is stable and scalable.
In white label development, you don’t really have the freedom to make the choice of the mobile app technologies that would best suit your business agenda.
Now that you have seen both sides, go with white label app solution only when there is a massive cost crunch otherwise, choose Custom App Development for long term stability.
