Apple iPhone has, without a doubt, become the people’s platform. The incredible apps have made the digital technology cheap and accessible. Although Apple entertains every app submitted to it, there are a certain rules of the game set by them. If your app meets all the technical and security aspects of Apple, it can show up on the App Store in a month. An iPhone app is made with a perfect blend of knowledge and creativity of a developer. An ideal iPhone developer should be proficient in technical skills and someone who can think out of the box at the same time. If you are running a mobile app development company and want to hire an iPhone app developer, or wish to make a career as an iPhone app Developer, here is a check list that will come handy:
Proficiency in Objective-C
This is a must have skill if you wish to hire an iPhone developer. Objective-C is used in writing codes and programs of the apps. So, it is a necessary skill to look for in a developer. An ideal developer writes clean codes. This helps him to go back again and again to the program and make relevant changes. Now, with the introduction of SWIFT,(programming language to interchange objective-C) a developer should be proficient in it as well.
The developer should be proficient with hands on experience in iPhone SDK, multitouch, Cocoa framework, GPS posting, Xcode, QuickTime, IMPS, web service integration and accelerometer. He should also have knowledge of adding third party libraries and dealing with API’s.
These are the building blocks of any iPhone application. So a developer must have experience on all these platforms.
An Innovative thinker
Apart from being a technical savvy, a developer must understand the user interface perspective of the app. This means that the developer should make sure that there is a great UI and UX experience. People like a clean and beautiful app. It becomes a responsibility of the app developer to deliver one.
Developers with knowledge of HTML5 are capable of creating apps which are both productive and elegant.
Should understand device compatibility
A developer should also know that the apps will run on all kinds of versions of ios. With Apple being unbiased to its new and older customers, an app should come up neat on older iPhone operating systems.
Calm and active decision maker
If Apple finds bugs and faults in the app, the app does not show up in the App Store and ultimately, the app is rejected. An iPhone developer should keep his nerves in these moments and resubmit the app after resolving the issues. Since the app can be submitted any number of times, the developer should make all efforts to satisfy Apple and make it to the App Store.
A good iPhone app developer learns from his mistakes, and grows his skills to achieve success. As a developer, it is important to learn the latest technologies and understand the market trends. When a developer is able to transform the ideas into reality, great apps are created.
