General Questions


How can I tell if my app idea is good?

Use market research to validate your concept. This involves analyzing competitors, determining the desired market size, and soliciting input from potential consumers.


Which payment options should our app accept in Thailand?

In addition to credit and debit cards, support for local payment methods like PromptPay, TrueMoney, Rabbit LINE Pay, and other mobile banking solutions is required to cater to Thai consumers' preferences.


What's the difference between a native and hybrid app?

Native apps are built for a single platform (iOS or Android) and written in platform-specific languages (Swift/Objective-C for iOS, Java/Kotlin for Android).

Hybrid apps are created with web technologies (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) and wrapped in a native shell, allowing them to operate on many platforms using the same codebase.

Similar yet better, Flutter and React Native are two technologies that can be used to create cross-platform native apps that operate seamlessly on a variety of devices, including iOS, Android, Windows and Linux.
