How Much Does it Cost to Make an iOS or Android App?

YEREVAN, Armenia - May 12, 2022 - PRLog -- Well, there's no single answer to the question of how much a mobile app development will cost. When planning the budget for your app, you'll need to take into account several factors, including the type of application, the number, and complexity of features, platforms, and even the location of the development partner (more on this in a minute). But in general:
  • a basic mobile app for 1 platform will cost $25,000 – $50,000
  • a medium-complexity app for 1 platform will cost around $50,000 – $100,000
  • a complex app for 1 platform will cost more than $100,000

Again, keep in mind that a number of factors can determine the mobile app development cost. Knowing what affects the final cost of app development is essential for making informed decisions. So let's look at some of the factors!

Development Partner: Freelancer vs. App Development Company

When it comes to finding a development partner, you have 2 options: You can either hire freelance app developers or an app development company to build your app.

Of course, hiring a freelancer is less expensive than an app development company. But keep in mind that building an app isn't limited to writing a few hundred lines of code. If you decide to hire freelancers, then you'll need to find freelancers for all the different aspects of your project (business analysts, UI/UX designers, and software test engineers).

A mobile app development company will cost more, but they will offer all-inclusive services, provide faster results, and produce higher quality.

Location of the App Development Partner

One of the most important factors in determining the price of developing a mobile application is the location of your vendor.

Some popular mobile app development destinations include North America, Australia, UK, South America, India, Ukraine, and Indonesia.

App development rate in Asian countries such as India, Pakistan, and Indonesia ranges between $25 to $35 per hour. The developers in countries like Australia, UK and South America charge between $40 to $110. Companies in North America tend to charge between $130 to $160 per hour to develop a mobile app.

App Complexity

Different app categories may require you to develop a different set of features. Thus, some features tend to cost considerably more than others, which obviously influences the final price of an app.

You can reduce app development costs by minimizing the app functionality and focusing on the main features. In other words, start with MVP! An MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is a product with only the essential features to satisfy early customers and collect feedback for full-version development.
