What are your company’s specializations?
We are specialized in the field of artificial intelligence writing. We have a paraphraser, a summarizer, a grammar checker, a citation generator, and a plagiarism checker that are all world-class. On top of that, we have developed an AI writing assistant called the ‘Co-Writer.’ We have a direct-to-consumer platform. We’ve made it so accessible and easy. We’ve gained a lot of word-of-mouth traction as well as seen our search engine ranking perform quite competitively. We were able to amass millions of users in a short time span.
Who are some of your major customers?
Authors, students, researchers, journalists, attorneys, bloggers, and professionals. We have a wide variety of demographics who use our platform. We see a lot of adoption amongst students and knowledge workers. Our flagship product is a paraphraser. It allows you to rewrite your text in many different styles or tones. We can make a sentence more formal or more casual. We can make it longer or shorter.
Think about it almost like a full-sentence thesaurus. Students, throughout their academic journeys, have to write major essays, papers, and dissertations. Professionals who are non-native English speakers find a lot of value in being able to reframe their thoughts in many different ways.
Top 3 apps that you have developed?
What is your average cost of mobile app development?
The cost of developing a mobile application for both platforms (Android and iOS) can often range between $100,000 and $150,000 dollars. There are a variety of factors that influence pricing. One critical point is the type of application, which determines the level of design complexity (e-commerce, ride-sharing, TikTok, etc will cost a lot more than a simple offline note-taking app). Furthermore, the one-time cost does not make much sense as a metric because any product requires constant modifications based on market feedback, which results in the incurring of further expenses.
What cross-platform technologies and tools do you use?
React Native for mobile. Native typescript-based stack for extensions.
Do you develop mobile apps with native or hybrid?
We follow a hybrid approach.
What is the app development process that you follow?
We follow an agile development process with autonomous teams owning the complete product roadmap. Autonomous teams imply a group containing skill sets from all required areas (Design, App Engineering, QA, Research).
The typical feature development process involves brainstorming on use cases, prototype designs, production code development, QA iterations, and release.
What is the latest technology/product you are working on?
Co-writer, our extension is an all-in-one writing assistant. The Co-Writer is an all-in-one writing space that combines online research capabilities, note-taking, and AI-assisted autocomplete to give users a seamless writing and research experience without ever having to leave the page. There is actually nothing else like the Co-Writer on the internet. While all of our other tools, like the Grammar Checker, are integrated into the Co-Writer, it is a unique tool all its own. It can construct sentences based on what you’ve written and inputted, essentially writing with you. Besides that, you can search the web for sources from the Co-Writer tool’s comfort.
Are you looking for customers in a particular industry or domain?
Education — We see that about 70% of our users are students. Our professional demographics are growing rapidly, mostly analysts and content writers.
Where do you see your company in the next 5 years?
Building the next generation of assistive writing tools. Writing with confidence will change the way you interact with the world, and QuillBot as a one-stop writing platform is ready to help you elevate your skills.
