Mobile Application Cost

You’ve decided to take your business to the next level? You’re looking for a mobile application developer or a mobile app development firm that will build you a mobile app with high quality, but you are worried about the budget? You’re not alone. 


Business owners, more than often, want to have quality but they don’t want to spend excessive amounts of money on it. Sometimes, they can make a huge mistake and opt for a cheaper, but a less qualitative version of a mobile application, rather than to just spend a few extra dollars to get a better looking and good functioning one. 


As a firm, WonderIT has worked with 80+ clients when it comes to mobile app development. We have the experience and quality needed. But we’ve noticed that most of our clients worry much more about the cost of the mobile app development, rather than the quality. There are some clients that don’t bother asking for our experience, reviews, customer feedback… They just jump straight to the question: 


‘But how much will all this cost me?’

Yes, price is part of the deal of course, but when it comes to mobile applications, prices may vary from dirt cheap to modest ones to daylight robbery- ones. 

It all depends on the mobile app development company, their experience, development team, whether they are a well-known company or newbies…after that, it depends on the app, its complexity, functions, whether it’s time-consuming, whether it requests specific skills, etc.

A decent-looking mobile application can cost you somewhere between 2.000$ to sky-high 250.000$. But then again, you have the freelancers and off-shore companies that will develop your mobile app for less, 1.000 to 10.000$ for instance.

  • Search for customer feedback

A good mobile app development firm will always have positive customers feedback and most likely no disappointed customers. You can even go one step further and reach out to the customers.  See if they are willing to share their experience with you.

  • Reach out to the mobile app development company

Go ahead, write a couple of emails to a few development firms, and see whether they reply. In the email, you can include everything that you’re interested in, but DO NOT SHARE DETAILS OF YOUR MOBILE APP. Not yet, it’s still too early. But, you might give them a brief of the complexity and some deadlines to keep them sort of updated.

  • Remember to ask for the maintenance cost

Once your app is developed it will need to be up to date. That requires occasional updates that the mobile app developer should do. Yes, that’s also a thing. It can be a small detail that business owners can foresee and get caught in a trap. That’s why you should always, always ask for the maintenance costs.


Freelance mobile application developer or a mobile app development firm?


Freelancers are on the rise in every single industry, as well as the mobile app development one. You can find them on FB groups and LinkedIn as well. They can be high quality, with experience, and are usually cheaper than mobile apps development companies. The tricky part is that they might work with you for a certain period of time. Nothing long-term. This means- once they’ve developed your app, the deal is off. in other words-find a new application developer. Either way, they are way cheaper, can have quite the experience and most importantly- they can develop a really good-looking and perfectly functioning app. 


Well, that would be pretty much all. All you need to do now is settle for the company that gives you the best price, has good customer feedback, and doesn’t seem sketchy in any way. If you opt for a freelance mobile app developer- the same steps apply. Remember- sometimes, you might want to spend that extra dollar on a high-quality company rather than save the dollar and spend a thousand more on a completely different mobile application because the first one didn’t turn out quite right.
