Android App Development

Android App Development

Android OS offers many opportunities, but also poses unique challenges due to the proliferation of hardware. Toptal senior developers are able to minimize the difficulty posed to app design while supporting app creation no matter what stage of development your app is in, and help to position it in the top rankings of Google Play.

iOS App Development

iOS App Development

Working in iOS offers the ability to work across three main devices—iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch—with unique potential in each area. Toptal developers have cracked the top 10 in the App Store and have worked in all areas including games, fintech, business apps, and more.

Cross-Platform

Cross-Platform

Bypassing native development can help speed up time to launch but requires top individuals to follow a proper methodology.

If done successfully, developers can fully utilize the capabilities of native platforms while also sharing business logic across them.

    At Toptal, we thoroughly screen our developers to ensure we only match you with talent of the highest caliber. Of the more than 100,000 people who apply to join the Toptal network each year, fewer than 3% make the cut. You'll work with engineering experts (never generalized recruiters or HR reps) to understand your goals, technical needs, and team dynamics. The end result: expert vetted talent from our network, custom matched to fit your business needs.

  • Can I hire developers in less than 48 hours through Toptal?

    Depending on availability and how fast you can progress, you could start working with a developer within 48 hours of signing up.

  • What is the no-risk trial period for Toptal developers?

    We make sure that each engagement between you and your developer begins with a trial period of up to two weeks. This means that you have time to confirm the engagement will be successful. If you're completely satisfied with the results, we'll bill you for the time and continue the engagement for as long as you'd like. If you're not completely satisfied, you won't be billed. From there, we can either part ways, or we can provide you with another expert who may be a better fit and with whom we will begin a second, no-risk trial.
