When you decide to make mobile app, there is cross road in front of you. Hire a developer / agency to developer your app for one time fee or use subscription based system where you or a hired professional can make your app. Mobidonia offers monthly, annually, /2 years and /3years subscriptions. So what are the pros of using app subscription?
Apps at Mobidonia start at 38$ / month and it is fair price to pay, but what if your app runs for years, this is quite some money. Should you choose one time fee and app developed by agency? Well in this post and infographic we will try to explain why it is not the better choice.
Reasons for subscription
1. App updates
Your app has to be regularly updated. Having a mobile app is a continuous process. Publishing your app and just waiting will not work. Your app shout think about updating the content of the app very often and from time to time to make design and layout changes. If you don’t do that you app will become boring and will look outdated.
If you have hired and dev/agency you should ask them to update your app content or look, and this can cast you more then the entire app. In Mobidonia you will manage your content, and can do design and layout changes. We will not charge you anything. This way your app is always up-to-date.
Let’s not forgot Mobile Operating Systems. They release new updates every six months or more often. In most cases they have braking changes, so your apps will not function good under thous OS. Mobidonia automatically will updated your app. In case you have app developed by agency you will face additional costs ( At the end it doesn’t look like it is one time fee, right? ).

4. Third party changes
In most of the cases apps incorporate third party services like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc. For example your app requirement can be “Facebook Login”. From time to time this systems change their public API. Mobidonia makes sure your apps is regularly update and uses the latest SDK runs smoothy. If you have one time developer app, well you know the rest of the story,
5. Perfect for event based apps
You are planing and event, and you want mobile app for it. Well this will be heaven for you. You can pay for the app for the time the app is active. Ex 2 months before the event and 1 after the events. Then you can deactivate the app. If this is yearly events, the next year you can reactivate the app. Your date will not be delated and you can work on app changes while deactivated.
6. What you see is what you get
When hiring a dev/agency you have one idea in mind, you know how your idea should look like and how it should work. But in most cases the dev/agency doesn’t.
