When your firm is seeking for a solution with an iPhone app, most likely you will be left out with two options:

(2) The second one is to seek the help of a professional iPhone application development company who is equipped with a team of professional and experienced iPhone app developers.
It will depend entirely up to you that which of the above option you prefer.

(1) Project Based Model, wherein the fixed cost will be given to you to accomplish the entire project.
(2) Hourly Based Model, wherein you will be actually able to hire professional dedicated iPhone app developers for your project.
So when your business is seeking to develop multiple apps or perhaps is seeking to integrate certain functionalities within your existing app than it is always good to hire dedicated iPhone app developers.

In such a scenario, you can probably hire dedicated iPhone app developers for a particular month or fixed hours, wherein they will work exclusively for your project. The additional requirement or changes that may arise during the actual project development phase can be addressed quickly and easily, and you need not have to worry about the increase in the cost as you will be paying only for the hours invested behind the project or perhaps it already covers that if you have hired the dedicated developer for a month.
