How Much Does it Cost to Make an App?

If you are like most entrepreneurs you want to know what it costs to build an app. If you don’t have time to read this article and just want to get a quick quote for your app check out our FREE Mobile App Calculator!

According to data published by SavvyApps the median price for you to build an app runs at about $150,000. Add advanced features, such as SMS messaging, location services, and dynamic visual design elements and your app could cost you anywhere between $200,000-$1.5 million. Considering that an app like Facebook would only take $500,000 to create, the return on investment for a well designed app is unparalleled by any other web service.

In fact, 84.9% of mobile consumption is spent in apps, according to eMarketer. Not only does a well-designed app provide custom end-user and business solutions, but it’s also critical for branding in the digital era. Mobile apps have fast become the second touchpoint for branded consumer interactions.

Generally, you have three options to pursue when developing an app:

  • Freelancers
  • In-house teams
  • App development agencies

An app development agency offers project managers and an experienced team of visual design staff and coders that work with your team to develop mature and responsive apps. At APPEK Mobile Apps, we’ve developed some of the most celebrated apps over the past decade from the French Girls App to Damon Wayan Jr.’s very own Special Guest App.

Cost to Develop an App

Calculating the cost of app development follows a simple equation:

(Development time x hourly rate) = development cost

Deciding whether or not to build an app can be overwhelming. The #1 reason why people don’t take the first step toward building an app is because they have absolutely no idea of what it costs to build an app. That’s why APPEK built a FREE Mobile App Calculator!

TheAPPEK Mobile Apps Mobile App Calculator provides you with an estimated quote of what developing your dream app costs.  We know because we’ve been building apps for clients for seven years and we are proud to have built some of the most popular and successful apps of all-time from iFart to French Girls App to Special Guest.

The APPEK Mobile Apps Mobile App Calculator provides estimated costs based on different services employed in the app from SMS messaging services to API integrations. Our calculator also adjusts these costs based on which platforms your app will be developed for including:

  • IOS app development
  • Android app development
  • Responsive web app
  • Cross-platform app development

You may have noticed that apps for different platforms are also priced differently. These are because the time to create an app on Android is much longer and harder than developing an IOS app. Apple’s Xcode IDE and Swift programming language simplify the process of developing an app, making it cheaper.

With a mobile app calculator, you can figure out how much it costs to develop an app to properly budget. We’ve built our calculator to quote customers on various app services we’ve developed in the past based on labor costs and the time it takes to build this all into one functioning ecosystem. Examples of pricing include estimated final rates for:

  • API integrations: $57,000
  • Artificial Intelligence: $125,000
  • Geo-location: $19,000
  • Machine learning: $125,000
  • Video Integration: $14,000
  • Bug reporting: $30,000

We also provide quotes for marketing and shopping services, such as incorporating Mailchimp, push notifications, and e-commerce checkouts. The most expensive services of mobile app design will generally be artificial intelligence, API integrations, and machine learning technology.

Our team will also provide you with a quote for final budget costs that include continuous deployment, app refreshes, and various marketing strategies you sign up for. We employ an agile development process, which means that we continue to work on your app after its launch to constantly improve upon it and generate you revenue and engagement.

Use our calculator to get an estimated quote on what our expected app will be. We’ll also work with you to develop wireframes, decide on different multi-features, and lay down the UI skins so you can track app development and figure out costs in real time.
