The cost of creating an electronic applicatio

The cost of creating an electronic application for both Android and iPhone

The cost of creating an electronic application is not free, especially if you are not a programmer and developer able to do it from scratch, and even when using some application creation sites, there are limits and you do not control the entire application and there are additional costs if you want to create a professional electronic application.

If you want to work on developing a professional application, you should be prepared to spend a lot of money both before launch and on updating.

How much does it cost to create an app on average?

Developing a mobile app can cost tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars depending on what the app does.

The short answer is that developing a decent mobile app can cost anywhere between $10,000 to $500,000. Here is the cost of building an app by categories:

Offline standalone app cost: $12,000 to $25,000

Medium Online Application: $5,000 to $45,000

The cost of developing a chatbot or chatbot is from $20,000 to $50,000

IoT or wearable app cost: $20,000 to $60,000

Messaging app development cost: $30,000 to $70,000

Augmented/virtual reality application cost: $40,000 to $70,000

On-demand app development cost: $50,000 to $100,000

E-commerce application cost: $30,000 to $80,000

Mobile social networking app cost: $30,000 to $90,000

Enterprise mobile apps cost: $50,000 to $120,000

These stats are for app development in the US which is a good value business for the companies operating in it.

It is possible to reduce costs by dealing with Arab, Indian or Asian institutions, but you can expect some problems and poor performance in carrying out your requests.

Cost to build an app based on feature set

The more features you plan to add to your app, the more steep your app build cost. Let's go over the list of features that will impact your app development budget to help you explain “How much does app development cost?”

As of iOS 14, there is a standalone operating system for iPads, so increasing the app development budget by 1.5x to support the iPad is still significant.

However, developing a standalone iPad app based on the iOS app should fit the 1.5-1.7 budget increase as well.

The source code remains the same plus the new iPad apps will run on the Mac with virtually minimal effort from the app development team.

Adding support for landscape mode will increase the app's total budget by 30% which is also an important feature.

The app development budget may increase twice if the mobile app has to run on an old operating system or on an old device, which is why apps like WhatsApp are discontinuing support for older phones.

If you want your app to work without a network connection, it must have cache algorithms, this functionality provides great user experience but at a cost of up to $12,000.

Notifications are an indispensable part of modern mobile applications, companies use notifications to keep users engaged: read news, download episodes, subscribe, etc.

The cost of implementing push notifications varies from one application to another, it depends on how sophisticated the notification system is, and adding this feature can cost you up to $2500.

User profile is where users fill in their details, set preferences, etc. It's a common feature of all social networking mobile apps, and the cost of implementing a user profile in the app should be around $2400.

The cost of integrating the social login feature is usually around $500 per social network, and the custom-designed registration, licensing, and full-featured login should fit in the $1800 range.

If your app is targeting users from different countries it should support the appropriate languages, depending on where the users live in the world their interfaces will be in Chinese, Arabic, etc. This functionality is very basic and its cost starts from $500.

While using a third-party chat SDK can cost around $2,400, developing a custom chat module in the app can cost up to $12,000.

Integrating the Mobile Ads SDK is a relatively simple task and will cost you up to $2000 from the app's total budget.

Depending on how many events you want to track you can combine the analytics and stats feature into the app for $2000.

You can also add and integrate third-party payment tools into the app for a budget of $2,600, although the APIs are free.

If your mobile app loads content from a server or syncs with a database, you need to buy hosting, sometimes it can be an existing server like you previously launched a site and now you want to provide an app for it.

How do I reduce the cost of creating an electronic application simply?

You can deal with local and Arab application development institutions or some companies in India that provide you with the creation of an application with a budget less than the previous amounts.

Or you can hire developers and build a team, and the cost will still be high, as each developer requires at least a good salary.

As for the third solution, it is to develop an integrated website that presents what you want the application to provide, and to launch an application for it that obtains the advantages of the main site and the content in it.
