App has three main components i.e. design/artwork, back-end (for data handling), and Android/iOS programming. Development cost depends upon requirement and volume of efforts needed, the minimum cost starts from US $1K.



Usually, the cost depends on the average time required to develop an app and hourly rate of app development. An hourly rate can vary from developer to developer, it depends on the location of the developer and the developer's professionalism. A simple app can cost few thousand dollars, read more here -


Hello Robert,

Cost estimation - whether you are developing website, app, or software - depends on technology, expertise, and feature requirements. Hence, it is impossible to give an idea of app development cost without insights of app features, platform (iOS, Android, or both), and timeline.

The cost of yearly updation and compliance testing also needs to be added. In case you wish to add new app features, then, it would come at a additional cost. In short, there are a lot of things that needs to be figured out before starting the app development.

It's also true that most businesses who think of getting an app don't really need an app. A hybrid mobile website could serve the purpose most of the times. I can connect you with our Head of Development to clear your doubts about app development if you are interested. Simply drop an email at to connect.

Have a great day!


Robert, what's your business about? Where can I contact you to know more about your requirements? I do have experienced app developers, at Space-O Technologies, as my colleagues. They can definitely help you out. Check out their portfolio, in case, you want to get more idea about their work. Lemme share iOS and Android applications developed by them.

Dear Robert,

Impossible to tell unless you can specify what functionality you need. From around 1000€ upwards per operating system (Android + Apple).

You also need to consider Apps are not one-off projects. You need to make sure they continue to work on the updated versions of the operating system, which currently include 1 release per year per operating system (so that is 2 per year if you are doing an app for both Android and Apple).

Additionally, you need to apply and pay for compliance testing for Apple and Google Stores before you can offer them for sale via their channels.

However, you need to think why you need an App. We usually get a lot of requests for Apps, but when we dig deeper we find the perceived need is the result of poor implementation of the website in mobiles. In 90% of the cases clients do not actually need an app, but what they want to achieve can be done by improving the mobile website as well as writing a bespoke app for their website which does not require a Mobile App.

We have just completed such a project for a Golf Course Membership using Digital Card instead of the current Credit Card type membership. Instead of costing around 2500€-3000€, we managed to deliver the functionality for under 1000€ including creating membership database, secure login area, “Virtual Card”, renewal and payment process, etc. The customer's perception was they needed an App, but the reality is they were heading down the rabbit hole!

Contact me via our website and let me know exactly what you are trying to achieve and we can explore what can be done together with pricing for the different solutions.

Here is an article that might help:



Usually, business entities develop mobile apps to increase their sales, to create loyal customers, and to publicize their goods and services. Rather than having a good design and user experience to the app, we should estimate its practicability to the concerned market. The matters that need to be considered while developing the solution and quoting its price are:

-Performance and security (framework used)
-Applicability and practicability

I would like to inform you of more details regarding its price and development, so please drop a message for further discussion.

Usually, the mobile app development cost will be depending on the platform of the website and what are the features you look in it. First of you need to notify what kind of business is yours, where you are targeting these all come to mind. If your business is a multi-vendor shopping cart there are some websites which are providing with all their services website building to app building and SEO of the website also. Like Shopify, woo commerce, Shopygen, etc. These companies may provide clones also. For ShopyGen will provide fiverr, upwork which is on demand marketplace services sites.
