In this guide, we covered the top factors that impact the overall cost of app development like the cost of hiring app developers, designers, required features & maintenance costs.
If there’s one question we get a lot these days, as a custom mobile app development company, it is this one: “How much does it cost to develop a mobile app?”. Of course, the current situation of the pandemic made a lot of businesses move online, and therefore the need for an app increased, hence the question became more of a trend.
The fact is that there are apps for almost everything you could ever think of; from making shopping in-store easier to apps for meditation and yoga. The concept of designing an app can seem like a good idea, but what you might not have taken the time to think about is what the process entails as well as what the price is of app development?
When apps first entered the market, there were just a few apps. By 2008 there were 500 apps to choose from, and over a decade later there are a whopping 2.5 million apps available to use and download. It’s easy to see the value that apps hold; with an increasing number of people using smartphones and tablets on a daily basis. That’s why, it’s easy to see why you would want to design and develop an app of your own.
How much does it cost to develop an app?
The fact is that app development costs vary from company to company, as well as differing depending on the project brief. Each app design and development project has a range of variables, and it’s important to bear that in mind when thinking about the process of creating your own app. App design and development can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars; each project is unique.
At ADAM House Marketing, we understand that every project is different, and that every budget is also different. That’s why our team is on hand to discuss budget requirements at the start of the app design process, to ensure that we are able to meet your financing needs.
Why do app building costs vary?
The reason that app design and development prices vary so much is because each project has different requirements. Various factors impact the app design process, which is why prices can vary as per the project brief.
Of course, it’s also important to bear in mind that different agencies have different rates that they use. While some agencies charge lower rates, it’s important to consider what the rate reflects. At ADAM House Marketing our rates reflect our teams’ qualifications, skills and experience, and the quality and integrity of the work that we provide.
What should be your first step when developing an app?
The process of developing an app can be complex, so it’s important to do things in the right order.
The first step should be to come up with a basic app concept; as you can’t get an accurate quote for your project without a basic brief. So creating this prior to starting the process of sourcing an app developer is important.
The next step is to determine what you want and need from your developer; remember not all app developers are born equal. The quality and product integrity of each development agency aren’t always the same, which is why it pays to do your research before choosing an agency to work with.
