There are a few fundamental differences between hiring a mobile app development agency and hiring a mobile app freelancer. The advantages of hiring a mobile development agency is that the agency comes with many developers, design services, and testers. The disadvantages of hiring an app company, is that it can be expensive, can actually take longer to develop your app and is narrow in its focus. While hiring an app freelancer, you are usually getting a senior developer who will be the only one working on your code base. He can help train your existing developers and work along side your programmers. Therefore, if you are building an app in-house but need a bit of help bringing it to the app stores, freelancer is a way to go. Another option, is offshore mobile app development companies, they typically charge a lower hourly rate, than American programmers, however, the quality may not be the same and you may pay more in the long term. 

The main advantage of outsourcing app development is time to market and skillset. Your team may not have skills to develop an app in a timely manner. However, with training for app programmers, offered by Brian Kayfitz, you can train your team to develop high quality app that do not have any performance issues. One way to do so is to have mentorship sessions for junior developers and code reviews for any new features that the programmers are working on.

As a mobile freelancer, Brian has no minimums or retainers. He is happy to do code reviews, help develop a feature or help solve a specific problem your programmer is having. He is also happy to talk about app's architecture, tech stack or any other strategic questions you may have.
