HOW WILL YOU WORK WITH ME?

You want to work with people that don’t waste your time, money, or focus. You can’t afford to follow a path that won’t get you to your end goal. You don’t want “yes men” who’ll simply do what they’re told. You want to work with people who are committed to helping you find the right path forward – the path that genuinely helps you build the right foundation for sustainable success.

Whether you bring us an idea scribbled on a napkin or a project already in progress, we will help you distill your project down to what really matters. We bring a strong point of view focused on helping you achieve your end goal, providing ideas and recommendations that help you find the right path forward. We are 100% committed to doing what’s right for the project, and we’ll always be honest with you about our views. Working with Distillery, you can count on a no-nonsense, no-fluff, no-bullshit approach to helping you get it right. We are company that genuinely knows how to turn an app idea into reality.



WHICH PLATFORM SHOULD I USE?

Building the right foundation for sustainable success includes helping you choose the right platform(s) for your app. Drawing upon our decades of experience and our immense Distillery network of expert app developers, we will help you weigh the pros and cons of each platform, ultimately making a recommendation on the right path for your app.
To help you make the right decision about your platform(s) – Apple iOS, Android, or both – it’s important to understand the basic considerations of each. Essentially:

  • Android has the advantage of size. It carries the largest market share of the industry (~80%). Android generally allows access to a much larger pool of users. It has a clear advantage in emerging markets (e.g., Asia, Africa, South America). Android also has several different distribution platforms, including Google Play, Amazon, and several others.
  • Despite carrying only 15% market share, Apple iOS continues to be the moneymaker, dominating profits. Apple’s loyal user base is well-known. Apple iOS tends to generate more revenue per user for in-app purchases, and Apple users are more likely to make in-app purchases.
  • Stay on the leading edge of developments and innovations in the Los Angeles-area and California tech communities.
  • Leverage our strong, locally based network of tech leaders and business partners to connect you with the right resources to help you grow and thrive.
  • Make an ongoing contribution to the dynamic, inspiring Los Angeles startup and business community, helping transform innovative vision into practical reality.

Your choice of platform also depends on your target audience. Identifying your audience will enable you to market your app more strategically, helping you get your app into the right users’ hands more quickly.

HOW MUCH WILL DEVELOPMENT COST?

Ultimately, no entrepreneur or enterprise can afford to disregard the cost of mobile app development. Costs vary widely and are based on the unique needs of each project. Costs will also vary depending upon the resource mix among developers, designers, information architects, strategists, and other support professionals: Are you staffing a portion of the project in-house? Or do you need a mobile app development company that can help you with 100% of the development-to-launch life cycle?
Distillery’s trusted engineers will help you make the right decisions for a cost-effective approach that makes sense for your goals and timeline. You can count on us to recommend what’s right for your project, and to be transparent about our pricing and level of effort.
