Mobile App Development
Transforming innovative ideas into high performing mobile applications
Our recipe to making successful mobile apps
User Interface and Experience Design
Mobile users prefer apps that look great and function well. Hipster adopts a design-first approach – offering UI UX design services for mobile apps developed by us. We convert your ideas into wireframes and prototypes to finalize the app requirements before development begins.
IOS, Andriod and Hybrid Apps
Choose from IOS, Andriod and, cross-platform mobile app. Our team of 60 comprises experts who can specialize in different areas of development.
Scalable and secure technical architecture
It is essential to plan for scalability from day one. From our experience, companies struggle when their architecture is too rigid to handle a sudden increase in workload. While it might be possible to work around the architecture constraints later, it is often expensive and time-consuming.
Project Management Experience
We have experience in the traditional waterfall and agile project management. Our project manager will work with you to bring your app or MVP to market efficiently and effectively.
Bring your brand and customers closer
Hipster understands the importance of mobile apps to scale, automate the business operations and engage with consumers for your brand.

Commonly Asked Questions
Progressive Web App (PWA), Native App, or Hybrid App?
Choose PWA if you want to develop a simple solution, have a smaller budget, and have a shorter timeline. Requiring no downloads, PWA can reach a vast audience.
Native apps are great for solutions that utilize the phone's hardware functionalities, e.g., camera. It also offers more security options, better performance, and user experience.
Hybrid apps work best for content-based solutions that aren't overly complex. It requires only one code source to run on both Andriod and iOS and hence is less costly to develop.
What is the best technology for mobile apps?
All technologies have pros and cons. Generally, we recommend Flutter for Hybrid app, Swift for Native iOS app, and Kotlin/Java for Android app.
What is the cost?
Depending on scope, complexity, and technologies utilized, the cost may vary from $5,000 to $200,000. We can discuss the options after a better understanding of your needs.
How long does development take?
The time required may vary between 3 months to 12 months and beyond, depending on project scope. We recommend launching in phases for projects that take more than six months, starting with an MVP and working towards a full product launch.
What is a prototype? Should I test using a prototype before coding?
A prototype is a simulation of the final product before coding commences. One common misconception is to skip creating the high-fidelity prototype and testing it to save time. However, from our experience with more than 50 projects, we discovered that high-fidelity prototype testing and iterations could dramatically reduce development time and cost. Overall, we recommend prototyping to save time and deliver a quality product that users have already tested.

Work with us
My first project with Hipster Inc was in late 2017, when we were looking into ways to better our Tueetor app. It was a tall order, as the app was already gaining some popularity in the community back then, and we did not want to “reinvent the wheel” too much, for fear of losing it.
It turned out to be one of the best decisions we have ever made. Not only did Nikhil and his team create a more robust, intuitive and scaleable version, in a nutshell, they made it elegant. So complete, the Tueetor app went on to bag the Asia Smart App Award for 2019. Hipster has also been instrumental in many groundbreaking features we see later on the app, winning us even more users and accolades.
Convinced that the team would continue to shine, I invited them back in 2020 to assist in the development of 10-Minute Tutor – an on-demand tutor app that combines both video-telephony and marketplace core functionalities into one. Hipster rose to the challenge.
In addition to mobile applications, Nikhil, alongside his talented and committed team members, also advise and develop some of Tueetor’s web stacks. So proficient, responsive and yet affordable in every way, we strongly recommend Hipster Inc to organisations that seek not just a reliable technology provider, but a trustworthy partner.
Mr Han Sing TanFounder & CEO
Event management has been crazy when the event is going on. Having Hipster team behind all technological needs just helps in the entire process. They have been very reactive in their support and reasonable in price.
Michel HugueninCo-Owner & Operations Director
Hipster is definitely a great web / mobile app development agency and offering a bouquet of cutting-edge services. Admit that I am not an easy customer, but they always serve with their professionalism, and patience, and most importantly align with the business need. Strongly recommend.
Zac LvMedia Director
I know Nikhil (Founder of Hipster) since 2015. Hipster has been working with 3 of my clients and has constantly been delivering high-quality developments.

A great team to work with.
Mathias BoissonotCEO & Co-Founder
Knowledgeable with the latest technologies and walked me through the different tech options before recommending which is best. Fast and responsive and made outsource web & mobile app development almost as good as what one can get insource but at a fraction of the cost
Oon Tian SernFounder
I’ve known the team for many years now, and have used their IT consulting service to help build mobile apps, websites and software developments. Impressive work yet cost-effective prices. Little surprise that they have made great traction and expanded into other cities such as Korea in a relatively short time.
We have recently received complaints that members of the public are targeted by some agents through WhatsApp who claim to be from Hipster Private Limited and using our UEN number of Hipster Private Limited to prove that they are legit Singapore companies.
They also use a similar looking domain name, our logo, and address on the website to make it as similar & credible as possible.
We want to make it very clear that Our company doesn't appoint any agent/recruiter for this so call 'money earning by apps rating' or 'any Ponzi scheme' where you need to deposit any money to get jobs.
Our jobs are always posted on official company pages on social media such as Linkedin, Instagram, Facebook and WSG.
