The 5 Best iOS Developers in Dubai

Sometimes, we may get ideas for software or an app. Unfortunately, not everybody has the technical skill to make one from scratch. 

Whether it’s for business or pleasure, there are experts in Dubai that can create applications native to iOS. So if you’re looking to create the next game changing app for Apple devices, you’re in the right place!

With that said, here are our picks for the best iOS developers in Dubai!

How Much Does IOS App Development Cost

Prices are usually determined according to the basic development process. Professionals charge depending on the scope and requirements set by a client. 

There are different types of projects based on their scale and complexity. These include small, medium-scope, large, and enterprise. 

A small project would involve minor changes to pre-existing software or bug fixes.  A medium-scope project will have developers add solutions and functions to an existing source of data. 

Larger projects are complex and might need multiple systems such as a database, log-in features, and security. Enterprise-level, on the other hand, are the most expensive and resource-heavy. 

With that being said, here’s our estimate of how much it can cost you if you ask a company to make an iOS app, depending on its complexity:

Project TypeCost of Development
SmallAED 11,019 - AED 220, 380
MediumAED 73, 460 - AED 367, 300
LargeAED 294,000 - AED 600,000
EnterpriseAED 370,000 - AED 460,000

Eiconix is a mobile application and design company based in Dubai. They offer user-friendly applications for various companies and organizations, such as Almosafer, UAPP and Foodate.

What we observed is that this company tends to accept commissions that relate to the food and service industry. They can work on native iOS and Android apps, as well as web platforms.

For their iOS development services, the company utilizes a lot of tools that help with the quality of their work. Some of these include Swift, a programming language that creates user interfaces that are easy to use for Apple products. 

They also have an in-house quality assessment team that tests the application before submitting it for your scrutiny. To further hone the quality of their work, they also use TestFlight, an application that invites test users to test your application. 

We like their usage of different resources and QA tools to create high-quality applications. They also offer post-dev support and maintenance packages. 

However, these are different transactions that usually get offered after your app is finally launched to the market.* Regardless, we still appreciate the support. 

Eiconix earns a spot in this list for its usage of resources and QA systems during its development. With their experience in creating applications for food and travel industry companies, this company can be of help to similar businesses!

Pros

  • Experienced in iOS application development
  • Has partnered with multiple companies
  • Utilizes established and in-house QA for software
  • Provides post-launch support

Cons

  • iOS development not their main focus
  • Post-launch support is a separate transaction

Dubai-based software development agency Mobiiworld is a company that creates mobile applications and websites. They also do custom software development for special cases. 

They have worked with multiple companies such as the UAE Pro League, where they created an application where fans of the Arabian Gulf League can check for updates and team statistics. 

Aside from that, Mobiiworld has also created a booking application for Lymo, a company that provides lift and transportation services for customers in Geneva, Switzerland. 

Their work has provided geolocation, call masking, and payouts for the drivers employed by the company. We recommend going to Mobiiworld if you’re looking for a developer that has experience with real-time updating of information.

Also, we’d like to note that they lean on taking enterprise-level projects that attract up to 100,000 concurrent users. We also advise commissioning them if you want an iOS application that can handle a lot of traffic. 

Now, in terms of post-launch support, they don’t really offer a lot. Not much is said about maintenance and support during an application’s life as well. 

Overall though, we think that Mobiiworld is great for companies that aim to cater to a lot of users in real-time. If you are in need of a developer for an iOS application that can provide current tracking and updates, this company would be of service to you!

Pros

  • Worked with various clients and companies
  • Ten years of experience in the industry
  • Expert in native iOS and Android apps
  • Offers free consultation services

Cons

  • Heavy focus on mobile applications
  • Minimal post-dev support

Device Bee is a professional development agency that focuses on creating mobile applications for business-to-business (B2B) companies. They also create software for business-to-customer (B2C) establishments. 

What we noticed is that they primarily focus on doing native Android and hybrid applications. They still do iOS-native software though. 

In terms of what they’ve done for Apple systems, they’ve created mostly food ordering applications, such as Mysofra and Chowking mobile applications. 

They also created an iOS app for Glamji, an on-demand service company. Their application displays the available beauty and dermatology establishments that a client can pick and book for treatments. 

Looking at their user interface, we saw that they usually lean on a minimalistic style. Using neutral colors, their interfaces are easy to look at (and also easy to work through). 

For development, Device Bee can do the following types of applications: cab booking, e-learning, e-commerce, as well as tour and travel applications. 

Another good thing about this company is that they are ISO-certified, so you don’t need to worry about quality! They also have experienced app developers dedicated to just doing Apple-compatible applications. 

What we don’t like is that they have very minimal post-launch support, mainly offering bug fixes. We recommend that you consider adding maintenance to the contract if you’re hiring them. 

In conclusion, we believe that this company will be good if you want minimalistic applications for retail or service booking applications!

Pros

  • Experienced with handling different kinds of applications
  • Has worked with multiple companies
  • ISO-certified

Cons

  • Primarily works on hybrid and android apps
  • Minimal post-launch support

Zafflesoft is a software company that caters to developing new applications that have to do with online currencies as well as blockchains. With over six years of experience in the industry, they have provided solutions to various companies and individuals. 

They create applications for mobile and desktop computers, but their focus mostly relies on hybrid applications. They still do iOS apps, of course having produced transportation, food service, pickup and delivery applications, just to name a few. 

Although we’re impressed with Zafflesoft’s diverse portfolio, they can also do custom iOS app development. They offer their services for upgrading and migration of software to Apple devices. 

So if you have an app that only runs on Android applications but want to expand that compatibility to iOS-run phones, we recommend Zafflesoft for the job. 

What’s unique about this company is that they offer Flutter app development. This is a framework that allows programmers to create an application that runs on both iOS and Android systems. 

Do take note, this is a separate option from the iOS-exclusive offers. So the company has a dedicated team for each kind of application. 

Now, moving on to the other services they have: quality assessment. Zafflesoft provides a dedicated assessment team to ensure that the app will work properly during and after its launch.

They also have post-development services, such as bug fixing and maintenance for your applications.

We mostly recommend Zafflesoft if you want to create an iOS app that can be ported to other systems in the future, as well as iOS-exclusive applications.

Pros

  • Has a dedicated QA service team
  • Offers bug fixing and security
  • Also has application support and maintenance services

Cons

  • The maintenance services are a separate transaction
  • iOS apps not their primary focus

Customer Reviews:

All of my questions were answered very quickly and to the fullest. I am grateful for this experience. I would everyone who is looking for a mobile application development that is going to help their business.” – Laurel Reese Rose Forbes

Branex, opened in 2014, is a developer that creates websites and mobile applications. What’s most notable about them is the design and functionality of their products. 

They have a great focus on presenting a somewhat signature take on the user interface of the applications they’ve worked on. They mostly lean towards a minimalist design with a modern look, using colors that are pleasing to the eye. 

For mobile applications, they offer their expertise in iOS, Android-exclusive applications as well as hybrids. They mostly focus on applications that run in both systems, though. 

Regardless, they can still offer good-quality applications for iOS alone. You can certainly be assured of the quality of the software you commission via the updates the company will give you constantly.

Branex provides transparency by sending the latest builds of the application they make. Essentially, you will get to review their progress via these builds. 

In terms of post-launch support, Branex has one of the best offers in the market. This is because they are available 24/7 when it comes to providing solutions and bug fixes! 

They also offer these fixes as well as maintenance as part of their development services, which is something that we liked about this company. 

Overall, for their customer and post-launch support and their minimalist and modern style of UI design, Branex earns a spot on this list.

Pros

  • Has good post-dev support
  • Offers 24/7 customer service

Cons

  • Appointment required
  • iOS app, not their main focus

Customer Reviews: 

Professional and Efficient Staff

“Branex was really profesional and were very patient with all my needs since this was my first website made. They helped me out with all the necessary requirements that was needed for a new startup. Recommend working with them.” – Abeer Maghrbia
