How Much Does it Cost to Create a Mobile App?

With over 3.5 billion smartphone users around the world, mobile app development keeps rising in popularity. If you have been thinking of developing a mobile application for your startup or business, the very first concern that comes up in mind most often is the cost to develop an app. Unfortunately, there’s no clear response to this concern as there are many factors involved. This raises more questions than answers.

When it comes to building mobile apps, the time-proven phrase “you get what you pay for” is absolutely true. If you Google “how much does it cost to make an app” you are likely to come across many different estimates, but they are nothing more than a marketing ploy to catch your attention because they can’t show you the real picture. The thing is that app pricing is impacted by a great number of factors that make up the overall experience. Even a seemingly simple app can cost a few thousand dollars all because it is difficult to execute technologically. In fact, the average app cost may vary from $10,000 to $250,000. That’s a huge gap.

Here is an infographic that will help you to estimate the cost of your app.
