Understanding Your Business Model

A clear understanding of the basic requirements for your app is necessary. For that, a lot of aspects of your business would cast an influence. Following points will help you :
  • The product(s) or services you intend to sell/offer
  • The platform that best suits your customers
  • Nature of the application -free or paid
  • The advertisement featured in the app, maybe a third party or of your own business
  • In-app purchases
  • Integration of the devices to make your app responsive
  • The visual design of your app and its role in the application interface
Clearly sort out every aspect discussed above to prepare and plan your app. The cost depends largely on these factors.

Know your Customers and What they Want

Apps are created for customers. Knowing them and their interests are necessary to shape an App and its complexities. Cost of app development also depends on this largely.

A Mobile App becomes successful if it targets the right customers and caters to their needs. Choosing the platform also depends on the same.

Nature of the App- Free or Paid

For proper estimation, first, you have to determine the nature of your app. Free and paid, both categories are available. Depending on your and your customers’ needs, choose the perfect option.

Paid apps make money upfront through the number of downloads. Amount of revenue collection and also recovering the expenses on the app largely depends on the number of downloads. There are several paid apps in the App Store and Android market. The success of paid apps depends on the willingness of customers and thus this needs to be considered as well.

In the case of free applications, the revenue collection is done via in-app purchases and advertisement and affiliate marketing. Free apps are focused on building a trust bond with customers. It is also helpful to form a customer base that you can later sell to.

It is important to understand your customers and decide whether your app will be free or paid. Developing expense is also related to this aspect.

Choose The Right Platform

iOS and Android, both platforms are available to explore for your mobile application. Choice of the right platform depends on the category of your target customers. In Asian countries like India and China, the number of Android users is very high. Again, if your customers belong to the elite section of the same region, iOS is a preferable platform.

Knowing your customers is vital for all the important features of your app. The costing varies largely depending on these factors.

Functions of the Application

Investment on the development of an app depends on what functions it performs. There are several categories such as List Apps, Dynamic Apps, Gaming Apps and so on. More complex and varied functions an app offers, more time and effort are required from the developers. Naturally, the cost also increases.

Developing List Apps is simple and costs very nominal. In the case of Dynamic Apps such as Facebook, the complexity level rises, raising the cost. Gaming apps are arguably the most expensive due to the complexity of the functions.

Nowadays thousands of applications are present, making it difficult to categorize each and every one of them correctly. The above three types mentioned are useful to broadly classify them.

Features present in your App

Important features of the application take time to develop. Thus, the cost also increases with an increase in the number and nature of features. Some of the popular and essential features found in modern apps are as follows :
  • Push Notifications
  • Chatbots
  • Login
  • Profile Management
  • Social Integration
  • Payment Structure
  • Geo-positioning
Thus, you have to clearly analyze all features required to make your application perform seamlessly. The cost varies with changes in the features.

Hiring the Right Developers

Freelance developers, as well as reputed firms, offer app development services. Freelancers are easily available and they generally offer services at a lower cost. But in the case of complex apps, the quality and skill set of the developers are important factors.

Small and new agencies usually charge lesser than experienced and reputed firms. But, in case the apps are even slightly complex, small teams may not be able to develop the right product.

Experienced teams of reputable developers can be higher as they have better skills and more experience. Their cost is much more than freelancers and smaller agencies.

The country where you are developing the app is also a significant factor in terms of prices. For instance, a moderately complex app might cost a few thousand USD to develop in the USA. Cost for the same with no compromise in skill-set is almost half if done in India. Due to lower price quotes, a lot of application development is outsourced to India.

Summing Up

It is not possible to state the average cost of app developing. A lot of factors come into play. Total investments needed to develop an app depend on the features, functions and type of the app and the developers you hire. Plan according to your needs and interest in your business. Do thorough research and background check to get the best results for your business.
