GPS and other bike rental app functionalities require a specific set of technologies, and specialists to make them run smoothly.
For example, you can’t imagine a bike sharing app development without payment integration, so your app must be secure. While frontend developers build the features, backend developers make sure the information stored in the app, such as credit card numbers and user profiles are safe and sound.
Today, it’s common practice to develop a cross-platform, or hybrid, app that shares the same code and works for Android and iOS since it’s a cheaper solution. However, if you want your app to work smoothly, we recommend native app development. This does increase the costs as you’ll develop two apps simultaneously, but it’s a wise decision if you want an app that performs well and is bug resistant.
Note that major companies never use hybrid apps as big players invest into stability and quality. Plus, as bike share apps collect and store payment information, good security is key, something that is easier to obtain with native apps as these leverage platform-specific security features.
Technological matters aside, what about the price of building a bike rental app? Let’s take a closer look at costs.
