Have you ever wondered how much it will cost to create an application for Android or iPhone? No doubt, every customer is looking for the high quality and low prices. However, everyone wants to know what the price of a relatively cheap and more expensive app comprises; and what one is actually paying for. We prepared these tips at Software outsourcing company FPS to help you to find an answer.
The key factor that determines the cost of a product is its overall complexity. The essential elements constituting the price are technical complexity, the number of devices and OSs, and custom designs.
Number Of Devices And OS
The cost of the app development also largely depends on the number of devices and the types of OS this application will be compatible with. An app for iOS should support the current and previous iOS versions as well as be compatible with the current and previous series of iPhones. The same principle applies to the apps for different Android OS versions. The more devices you choose, the more costly the development process will be and vice versa.
If you choose to build an app from the standard components, the costs of development will be much lower. On the contrary, the custom user interface will automatically increase the total price of an app as it’s more difficult to implement.
The overall cost is not limited to the development only. You should also take into account the post-launch phase which entails additional costs on promotion, updates, customer support etc.
