A question that often comes up is, “how much is a mobile app?” This a tricky one to answer so quickly because quite simply, it depends. There are multiple factors that go into the cost of an app. It is largely based on features, complexity, time, functionality, and platform.
Things to Consider
When thinking about developing a mobile app, think about who your audience would be, what you want the app to do, and how many pages. These all effect the cost of an app. The more complex, the more it will be.
If you want it to be on both IOS (Apple) and Android smart phones, then your cost is likely to increase by 60%. What started at $15,000 went to $24,000. This is due to the different needs of each platform; they require different programming. Therefore, this would be more work on the developing side.
Building an app has many stages to it. The complexity of it can extend the time on some of those stages. The more labor hours developers have to work to build the app, the more it would be cost-wise. Time to build an app is just like the cost, it very much depends. There is a total of seven stages to build an app. If there are more features that are wanted it will extend the time for certain stages like the discovery stage or the wireframing stage.
Ultimately, giving a clear-cut answer on the cost is next to impossible. It all is dependent on the kind of app and what you as the client want for the app. Keep in mind of the main factors that go into the cost which are time, functionality, complexity, features, and platforms.
