To set out a conversation on a new mobile app software development you need to finalize the following points:
The higher expectations you have for these features, the more timeline it will take to build them, hence the raise of the budget.
Every development project is usually split into typical stages of work, that each have an estimated cost.
Based on the analysis by Clutch resource of over a 100 app development companies, here are the average numbers for each stage. Main figures are the following:
Requirement gathering / Analysis
51% - manage to cover this point at $5k or less; 22% - go over that price.
60% - stay within $5k – 50k; 32% - spend less than $5k; few charge over $50k. Development
33% - evaluate it the range of $5k-10k; 25% - raise to $10k-20k only 9% - can manage for less than $5k.
Testing & Launch
32% - would do with less than $5k; 31% - require $10k-20k, the rest do not reach over $25k Maintenance directly depends on the period planned for it.
Any estimation for either Android software development cost or IOS development is a lot about the location, since:
The mobile app development for Apple devices is known to be higher in price, however many decide to create an iOS app and port it to Android later. This is most likely due to a bigger variety of devices for Google platform.
Overall, mobile app development has many factors to think over, but this careful consideration will lead to successful results.
