A typical app development team comprises a designer, developer, account manager, product manager and tester. A designer works on the visual content that is coded into the project. An account manager coordinates with the clients and product manager for smooth running of the project. Product manager ensures that app is built implementing the ideas and request of the client. Finally, tester shows the green flag for the app launch.  Mobile app development is a complex process involving several stages like conceptualization, planning, designing, development, prototyping, testing and deployment. We will not go deep into the mobile app development process here. Rather let’s focus on the app development cost. As per the current market, developing a v1.0 app would cost anywhere within $15,000 to $200,000.Still there are several factors that affect the overall cost of app development. The factors that affect the price of a mobile app are:

And a mobile app created by a start up or small company carries a lower price tag of around $10,000 to $100,000.  However, the cost of smartphones and tablet apps that have complex user interface is priced between $250,000 and $1,500,000.

Moreover, the cost of an app is also influenced by the type of the operating system for which it is developed. App development for iOS operating system takes more time and dedication compared to apps developed for other operating systems. Therefore the cost of iOS apps is high and so is the app development for Windows operating system. The cost of app development also varies when it is developed for multiple platforms. Some apps are compatible both for iOS and Android platform. The budget for this type of app development is estimated earlier in the planning phase.
