it’s important to know the cost you can expect to turn your idea into reality. There are currently three million apps in various app stores, and they all have been developed with different budgets. If you call several app development companies to figure out the cost of a given project, you can expect to get very different answers. It may be impossible for you to know which number is most appropriate. It takes time and effort for both the Idea Owner and the App Developers to come up with the most appropriate cost. http://www.simpalm.com
Cost to Create an App
Visit : www.simpalm.com
SIMpalm’s team has used its seven years of experience to
come up with a Universal Formula that anyone can use to
estimate the cost of an app.
Here it is:
App Making Cost = (UI/UX Design Hours + iOS App Hours + Android
App Hours + Backend Server Hours)
X Developer’s Hourly Rate
Estimate the Design Cost of an App
It is very important to create a thoughtful UI/UX for the application. It does not matter if
your app is small or big, this is the most crucial step of app development. It takes time
and money to do UI/UX well, however, it will save you cost and time in the long run.
Cost of an App without a Backend
If your app does not need a
backend server, it will cost you
to get the app developed. These
apps are relatively cheaper,
because you don’t need additional
developers to build the backend.
Cost of an App with a Backend
Many applications these days do
require a backend, typically to be
able to save data on a backend
server, and to be able to fetch it
again for later use. Any app that
needs to allow one user to access
another user’s data, will need a
backend server. Building backend
adds cost to the App Development.
One Platform VsTwo Platforms
If you want to build the app for both the iOS and Android platforms, then it will
cost you almost double that of building app for one platform. As a startup,
you just want to start with one of the platforms, and launch it to capture the
market reaction. iOS is the most preferred platform in the U.S. when
launching app for only one mobile platform.
Cost of App for Two Mobile Platforms =
2 X (Cost of App for one Mobile Platform)
Native Vs Cross-Platform Approach
You can build mobile apps using a cross-platform framework such as Titanium, Xamarin,
single source code. Generally, it costs less to build iOS and Android
apps using the cross-platform approach, compared to the
native app development approach.
Cost of Cross Platform
iOS+AndroidApp < Cost of
Native iOS+ Android App)
Cost after launching the app
Once you launch the apps on stores, you may incur several additional costs.
I hope this has helped you understand how developers estimate the cost of an app
project. But, if you still have questions or need a more detailed quote for your
