“This project was originally planned 2 months to finish but it has been delayed months. From the beginning of the design, we started to feel delay but we were promised that there is no delay when programming started. However, the programming process delayed even more. The reason they gave us was because our web service problems etc for the delay. We can only agree part of this but the delay for months was not acceptable. We figured out that their developers were working on a couple of projects at the same time, not dedicated on our project. If we asked something to fix, we have to wait until they finished their other jobs. That's how the delay happened.
Quality is another big problem, after iPhone and Android Apps were tested, we asked to developer to upload to stores. The store approved versions has many problems and bugs. We were told that they uploaded wrong version to store. How could that happen? We have wasted much time due to this error. More over, Android app has missing functions comparing to iPhone app. There are some functions that suppose to be developed but they have not done at all. We are not sure they did this on purpose or did not know this.
Their developer were able to address our issue quickly when they can focus on our project. They know how to develop app but if they do not pay attention and really dedicated on it, you are hiring someone like a student. That's how we felt our Android app was done by someone like a student.
As to cost, their initial cost is fine but later, if we want to change something, their price goes up a lot and make you either pay a lot of money or forget about it. We feel trapped in this case.
Overall, this is a failed project. This company cannot be considered as a long term provider.”
