Android and iOS application development can be a major component of business development strategy. Digital technology development companies can hire good mobile apps developers to exploit the rising demand for efficient mobile applications.

There are various techniques of earning revenue through free applications:
Recommendations/advertisement: Free applications enhance RoI through advertisement revenues. However, recommendations are more beneficial than advertisements since people are more likely to try a relevant product or service than otherwise. Besides, recommendations are means of continuous business with users. Moreover, highly relevant applications can potentially earn referrals by users.
Purchasable upgrade: Another way to enhance RoI through free applications is to provide more and upgraded functions for a price. The basic version of the application convinces users of its utility and drives them to purchase premium version.
Besides direct revenue generation, there are other ways in which iPad apps development can enhance the RoI for IT/ITES-dependent companies.
