The Era of Smart Healthcare

The Era of Smart Healthcare

Herbs, Tablets and now Technology. Our health sector has undeniably gone through a dramatic change since time inception. While Herbs and Tablets remains an important aspect of every health sector, smart healthcare is growing at an alarming rate and here is ‘’Why’’. Smart healthcare has developed to the endless opportunities it holds, ranging from the numbers behind the incredible stats. This piece got you covered, so sit back and enjoy a good read.

Global Health Care Challenges

Before we dive into the potentials of smart healthcare, we would like to pinpoint a few global health challenges affecting the health sector.

A research on the global healthcare outlook carried out by Deloitte
A research on the global healthcare outlook carried out by Deloitte

In 2018, over 3 trillion dollars was spent on health care issues in the US. While the US remains the country with the biggest budget in terms of healthcare, they are still at the lower half of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

It is of importance to note that expenditure alone does not account for the reliability of the healthcare services provided in any region. The major determinants of cost drivers of the health outlook of any given region are:

  • The aging population attributed to that region
  • A pattern of care rendered
  • Expenditures
  • Therapeutic advances.

The constant growth of health-related facilities has made the issue of funding a major challenge to a vast volume of health sectors across the globe. Procuring a reliable medical service from most government-owned hospitals have become a bit expensive for individuals. The expensive nature of reliable health amenities has made a lot of health systems in the US and abroad resign to partnering and merging with other enterprises in other to tip the economy in their favor.
For instance, in India, the need for more financially sound operating models has made the partnership between highly rated app development companies and the health sector possible. Most health systems are implementing different measures to cut the cost.

  • Developing alternative staffing models
  • Shifting patients to outpatient services
  • Reducing administrative and supply cost

A Complete Cost Guide For Entrepreneurs to Develop an App Like Tinder

A Complete Cost Guide For Entrepreneurs to Develop an App Like Tinder

There are many factors involved when considering the development of dating apps like Tinder App. There are various different aspects to the development of online dating apps that can beat Tinder dating app at its own game or at least present some competition.

Dating Applications - Parangat

Now when you start developing a dating app, it’s hard to ignore Tinder. Since it entered the market, it has created a niche out of nothing virtually on its own. There were a couple things mainly that stood out from the rest in making Tinder App a hit amongst youngsters and teenagers alike.

Tinder App - Parangat

Though it has great interactive design and a lot of functional features, it was its swipe gesture, geolocation feature and match on chat option that made it a hit. Now, it was as inventive as it was user-centered and practical. These are the things that you need to keep in mind as you go along the development of an app like tinder and will decide cost accordingly.

Below is the list of factors that affect the development of your Android app especially one such like tinder and this invariably your costing estimate for the same.

1- App development Platform
2- Backend Development
3- Web Portal Development
4- Q/A testing

When you take into account the above various factors, you get a rough estimate of the cost that would be required to develop an app like Tinder. Further, based on your geolocation and the workforce that you hire and expertise that you require, you can zero in on the total amount.

App Development Platform

There are mainly two app platforms being used worldwide i.e. Android and iOS. Both very popular amongst its users for their own qualities and specifications. When it comes to launching an app like this, it becomes hard how to decide between choosing two platforms.

Ideally, iOS users generate more revenue but that’s compensated by a large number of Android users worldwide. When choosing between one platform or other, you can always choose to go with cross-platform/hybrid apps as compared to native apps to each platform.

Now, native apps take somewhat 200+ hours for android app development and around 250+ hours for an iOS app development. Hybrid apps need approx 350 hours of development time and require more technical expertise which means higher developer cost as well.

Backend Development

With heavy traffic and the database that an app like tinder requires, you must have a fully equipped admin backend technical panel if you are hoping to compete with tinder app on some level. It usually takes around 180-200 hours for an efficient developer to create it.

This backend panel will not help you track down analytics of app users, it will also help you analyze user behavior and latest trends. You will have to keep yourself upgraded constantly if you want to last in a long time.

Note: To make the best out your backend panel, make sure that it has feasible integration with several other tools such as google analytics etc.

Web Portal Development

If you’re aiming big then you need to have some source of your entire database or information repository to which users can refer to via some extension. The cost for developing such an extension depends upon the features that you choose to go with. Generally, it can take 100-150 hours of development time.

Q/A testing

Quality analysis for debugging purposes is one of the most important phases in which any flaws left whatsoever are detected and resolved before final release. Due to this stage being highly technical and through, it can take anything between 150-200 hours to be completed. That all is including the app deployment on the app store.

All the above things considered apart, there is also the matter of technical expertise required and resources needed. Most of all, everything can depend upon whether you outsource or hire a team to build your app.

These 4 are the general team members that you will need for a basic dating app:

  • 1 Graphic Designer for about 50+ hours with charges ranging from $25 per hour and above.
  • 1 UX designer for approx 100+ hours with the price per hour starting from $25 same as above.
  • 1/2 programmers depending upon your choice between native and hybrid apps costing $25 per hour and above for native developers and $35 and above for hybrid ones.
  • 1 Quality Analyst for about more than 100 hours with per hour cost starting from $15.

Note: Above is just a rough estimate for the cost of the team members and depends highly upon their technical expertise, experience and the country you are in. Hiring members in developed countries such as America can cost twice or thrice as much as hiring them from a country like India.

Calculating all the above hiring costs and number of hours required from initial development to app deployment, we can put an estimate between $30k-$50k for an average dating app with your basic features. Needless to say, the higher you go in terms of UI, UX, technical features etc, pricing increases with the same.

Why React Native is good for Mobile App Development?

Why React Native is good for Mobile App Development?

Mobile App Development is increasingly in demand with smartphones becoming easily affordable to all. With smartphone within everyone’s reach, business needs to reach it’s potential consumer first which is feasible via means of an app.React Native technology is another increasingly popular trend especially amongst app developers. It’s a cross-platform tech allowing you to incorporate the functionality of web apps into mobile apps without their heavy coding interface.

A Brief History of React Native - Parangat

The best part about it is that it was made open-source by Facebook with the aim to promote further development and to increase the scope of it.

React Native vs Native Performance

Performance is a key factor when it comes to deciding between things, no one wants to adjust with the performance of their product if they can help it. Same goes for the mobile app development, with such higher competition day by day, the app with the best performance wins at the end of the day.

Comparing the performance of similar apps based upon react native & native functionality, we arrive upon the conclusion which puts react native ahead of native apps. First of all, as compared to recompilation of whole application in native apps, react native reloads only the edited file thus faster delivery of updates and continuous smooth experience.

As far as memory allocation is concerned, react native makes use of more memory as compared to native apps due to it’s heavy functionality. React native also has a different thread for running business logic and a separate layout thread for UI which prevents UI freezes or code violations.

It has increased CPU usage as well compared to native apps as often during heavy load, the main JS thread gets busy in finishing other tasks, thereby making it utilize more resources.          

React Native Apps

With the advent of react native technology, developers no more had to face the dilemma between better user experience and/or faster development time and usability across various platforms. Even though, react native is still in its early stages, accelerates the mobile app development process much owing to the code reusability.

It initially started as an internal project but is increasingly becoming a mobile app developer’s first choice to make the most of web technologies on the mobile framework. With it’s rising popularity, there is no one from small startups to fortune 500 companies that havent made good use of it.

React Native vs Native App Development

When comparing the development process and the outcome of the native apps vs react native apps, both side has some pros and cons each which needs to be considered for precise judgement.

Native apps development has one major flaw in it i.e. need to develop separate applications for separate platforms making them differ quite a lot from each other despite the same backend. However, there are many benefits to it as well. It provides API access without any restrictions or limitations, lots of third party libraries to choose from, strict coding languages making it easier to detect errors in codes.

React Native apps offer many advantages such as the majority of shared code base making applications across various platforms quite similar in all aspects, react native development time is very less due to shared code as well, smooth transition from web to mobile apps, being open source which makes it available for further improvements. Not everything is all good though and it comes with its fair share of drawbacks too, doesn’t support all APIs, less third-party libraries, interaction problem with existing native apps, different design elements of iOS and Android.

Flutter vs React Native

For those of you who don’t know, Flutter is Google’s SDK launched last year. It’s another platform that helps you in developing cross-platform apps. As though it is, better sooner than later, a comparison with existing popular choice for that i.e. Facebook’s React Native was inevitable.

Even though, it’s been only a year for flutter while react native has been around since 2015, it’s already considered a revolutionary move ahead of its time. The keen difference between both is though react native aims to unite both iOS and Android app development by shared code base, flutter allows you to create highly native apps for both whiles using the same code.

Final Verdict

Considering all the things being said above, surely you can now decide upon your own personal preference over choosing to react native as compared to the native apps which soon tend to become a thing of the past, what with the advent of Flutter and more.

As the time passes, cross-platform apps are becoming the need of the hour due to the increasing iOS users worldwide and developers trying to prevent unnecessary usage of resources as well as time consumption.

A Guide to Blockchain App Development

A Guide to Blockchain App Development

Although blockchain technology is not a new concept, in recent years, the cryptocurrency and blockchain bandwagon has left the world awestruck. They have managed to catch the fancy of investors, technocrats, and even the general public. Having the crown of being the hottest topic in 2017, the blockchain and cryptocurrencies are going to continue their legacy with even more awesomeness. Before we move on to our central discussion, let’s quickly go through our basic guide to blockchain app development and answer the main question every single person is asking:

What is Blockchain?

Developed by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008, Blockchain is an ever-growing list of cryptographically linked records, called blocks. The digital information stored in blocks are paired to each other with a hash function, where each block contains the cryptographic hash of the previous one. The blockchain technology doesn’t require a central authority or server to execute its operations and thus is a transparent, immutable, and publicly accessible database.

How to become a Blockchain app developer?

Well, when we are living in an “era of blockchain”, there are a number of things that a developer should be aware of. As a serious developer, one should be very clear of the fact that learning blockchain app development is not a magical process rather is a continuous process that requires great dedication (whether it be resources, time, or sincerity). Keeping this in mind let’s dig into our central topic.

Understand the basics

The first thing that comes first for anything new is understanding the basics. A beginner should first acquaint himself with the key terms such as blockchain, 51% attack, distributed ledger, consensus mechanism, mining, etc. Although here it is not possible to cover all of them, you can refer the blockchain glossary section to grab up the key terms quickly. With this, the knowledge of cryptoeconomics and cryptography would be an added advantage if you are intrigued about these.

After this, it would be an injustice if you don’t study about how bitcoin works as it is one of the most sophisticated applications of the blockchain technology. And this gets even more important after seeing the impacts that bitcoin has on current situations.

Learn how the process works

After getting through the basics, the next step is to get some hands-on with the real-world scenario. How come can a developer work or develop on a platform that he hadn’t used before? So, it gets important that a developer gets acquainted with the current system. To start with it, you can go to any online exchange available for your country and buy some coins for your e-wallet. And this won’t be useless as the wallet services are available anytime and anywhere. Depending upon your choice, while you learn the whole process, you have the option to dive-in to the vast ocean of bitcoin.

Happy Coding!

As a blockchain app developer, there are a number of challenges that a developer might face. Unlike traditional app development, blockchain app development is a slow process. The top reasons that need to be taken into consideration are security, resource management, performance, and isolation.

While there are many platforms available for blockchain mobile app development, the top ones among them are Ethereum, Multichain, Hyperledger, IOTA, and Quorum. While choosing a suitable platform, the following should be taken into consideration:

  1. Nature of platform: While some platforms are cryptocurrency-based others rely on smart contracts. Choosing a suitable type will definitely make the process easier.
  2. Smart Contracts: It is a self-executing process that processes, enforces, or validates any trigger-based action stored on the blockchain system. Deciding whether to use this or not is an important step.
  3. Cryptocurrency: If cryptocurrency is going to be used in your application then this plays an important role in deciding the platform.
  4. Public/Private Network: Before creating your blockchain application, you should decide whether you want to allow everyone to make changes or want to grant only authorized user access.

Just like platforms, developers have the choice to choose between various programming languages. Where blockchain specific languages like Solidity and Simplicity are popular in the market, traditional programming languages like Python, C++, Java, Go, etc. are still fascinating developers. In fact, the Bitcoin source code was written in C++.

As a beginner you can start with creating a simple block that contains the following pieces:

  • Index: To identify the block number
  • Timestamp: To tell the time of creation
  • Data: The information that is to be contained in the block
  • Previous Hash: To know the hash of the previous block
  • Hash: To identify the hash of the current block

After you created a block, add more blocks and hence validate your chain to check that everything is stable and that nobody is messing with your blockchain.

Learn about Smart Contracts

According to Investopedia, smart contracts are “self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller being directly written into lines of code. The code and the agreements contained therein exist across a distributed, decentralized blockchain network.”

How Smart Contracts Works (Source:

Anything that runs on a blockchain network should be immutable and must run through multiple nodes without compromising on its integrity. Because of which, smart contract functionality needs to be three things:

  • Deterministic: It simply means that a program is capable of giving the same output for the same set of inputs in different computers.
  • Terminable: Contracts must be capable of termination within a given time limit to prevent them from being caught in an endless loop that may drain resources.
  • Isolated: As there can be many contracts uploaded, so it is critical to isolate them in order to save the entire ecosystem from any negative effects.
Synchronize with technological updates

As development is an unending process so it is very important to be updated with the technological changes and it is even more important for budding developers. Being in the mix not only helps a developer fine-tune his skills but become an appealing developer. Blockchain is a technology that is going to have stunning impacts in the future and talented will be able to reap full benefits out of it.

Factors to Consider While Enterprise App Development

Factors to Consider While Enterprise App Development

Enterprise application development has made essential the seamless flow of internal communication across various departments such that data-driven and factual decisions undertaken get even simpler. An enterprise mobile app is helpful for any business in solving specific business problems, improve the business processes, and make the involved employees more productive. It is such an important aspect these days that Mobile application development companies are professionals hired by big brands and business to either develop an enterprise application to bridge the gap between the potential users or buyers and the business provider or sellers. Else, develop apps that are intended to cater the internal business processes. Also, to stay abreast of the continuously changing technology, businesses are willingly entering the app development field. In today’s world, even a small, local vendor/store has become tech-savvy by owning a personal enterprise application for his business and prefers most of the transactions through Paytm, PhonePe or any other such popular payment gateways.

With all this one can easily understand the importance of building enterprise applications for a business and having them to ensure that the business is having a progressive growth. Not only this, but enterprise application also ensures that all resources are used to the optimum value and there is an efficient model of work. Now, as we have established the importance of an Enterprise app, let’s understand what actually an enterprise app is and how it is developed.

What is an Enterprise App?

An enterprise application as the name suggests is obviously a business application. The mostly used term is a big business application. In today’s corporate environment, enterprise applications are complex, mission-critical, scalable, component-based and distributed in terms of the purpose they serve. They may be deployed for use on a variety of platforms across the span of corporate networks, intranets, or the Internet itself. They are data-centric, purpose specific and user-friendly for best experience. Also the enterprise app must meet stringent requirements for security, administration, and proper regularised maintenance. In short, they are highly complex systems.

Above image shows an example of the look-n-feel of an enterprise mobile app. Such Enterprise App Development means satisfying hundreds or thousands of separate business requirements. One more concept increasing the complexity of the app is that every development decision you make to satisfy the specified requirement affects many other requirements and functionality of other purpose modules, often in ways that are quite difficult to understand or predict. As if this is not enough, one more complexity is that that the failure to meet any of these specified requirements can actually mean the failure of the entire project!

Enterprise App Development

Once the need of an enterprise app is understood and the perks of having one is explained, the next question that arises is, “How to Build an Enterprise Application?” The question seems straight-forward and a novice answer would be, by getting in the app development cycle and going through it. But it is not that simple. Most of the popular business and organisations hire professional Enterprise App Development companies to get their app build. This helps them have the app developed in proper time span and continue their focus on the business.

The key features that need to be kept in mind during enterprise app development are:

  1. Knowing and Targeting Your Audience: As an enterprize mobile app needs to solve the specific business problems or serve precise business needs. Hence, one must properly identify and define the business needs very clearly and accurately to accomplish predefined business/organization goals. It is of utmost importance to spend some time in identifying business needs and to have the mobile app customized according to the precise needs. This, in turn, can reduce the development cost to the testers and developers. Unless you are as famous as Facebook, Google, Microsoft or Instagram, don’t expect your app to have a tremendous appeal to a mass audience. This is one huge biggest mistake that mostly many businesses make with their enterprise app development project as they intend to target everyone and end up targeting none. Before you begin with developing or even planning to build your enterprise app you must have an exact idea of who your audiences are and what they desire from your app or what you want to serve. Once you are cent percent sure of your target audience and have them classified based on factors affecting your business aspects, it is easier for you to market and promote your app in the best way for the utmost output.
  2. Problem Solving:  How would your app offer value to lives and why should the target audience or your internal employee use it or even install your app and not one offered by your competitor? This is one of the most important questions that any business must answer while developing their enterprise mobile app in the first place. Your enterprise app solution should address a problem that is being faced by most of the users. If you can find an actual problem that hasn’t been solved by anyone else before, you have struck a gold mine!
  3. Security & Functionality: It is important for any business to understand the difference between consumer apps and enterprise apps. While both of them may seem to be the same from the user’s point of view, as a business it is of optimum necessity that you lay stress on the security and functionality of the business enterprise apps. Users are likely to install and use enterprise apps when they are subscribing to your business services or when they have the intention of doing business with you. In both these cases, your enterprise app needs to live up to the high expectations and serve the best interest of the user in terms of security of data, user experience and personal information of the user.
  4. Focusing on User Experience: Would you ever love driving an ultra-luxurious high tech vehicle that is very complicated to manoeuvre? Irrespective of your business brand value, your enterprise app is of as much value as the user experience it offers. One must have alpha and beta testing along with a closed group actual user feedback on the experience that your app offers. The enterprise app development process must be moulded as required by the feedback from the user.


These are the most basic steps that any enterprise app development process must consider to have the best app and ensure that it fulfils the enterprise goals. To have a top enterprise mobile app developed for the business, one optimum way is to use mobile app developer companies like Fluper.

Also one must remember that the business and user requirements and expectation are continuously changing. So the enterprise mobile app development services and a process must keep in mind that the process and their app need to be adapting and enhancing continuously.
