iPhone App Development Cost, Cost of Creating an App

Cost of creating an App

Depending upon various aspects like User Interface and Design of the application, the cost varies according to the type of features you want to add to your application. The cost of a basic enterprise app would be much less than a medium sized enterprise app whose cost would certainly be different from that of a larger enterprise. Creating an app involves human capital. If only a single person is involved in the app development process, the costs are obviously going to be at the lower side.

There are many aspects on which the complete cost structure depends; some of them are as listed below:

  • Specific project requirement
  • Project perception
  • Complexity of UI
  • Is the app related to Web-services or normal?
  • Designing of UI
  • Testing of the app

Excluding the costs of the hardware involved in the process of app making, a domain name and hosting service is required. Other costs like the developer fee may be recurring on a monthly basis. There are different app developers in India, who charge anything from $40 to $125(2600 to 8000 INR) an hour as the app development costs. The more time consumed in developing the desired app design, the more is the cost.

In India, the average cost to develop an app can range from $3,000 to $8,000(20,000 to 52,000 INR). Similarly, the cost for building a complex app with enhanced functionality may rise up to as much as $40,000(2,50,000 INR). Quite a lot of things bring about increase in development costs. For instance, requiring regular updates for the app, addressing issues that users face, managing reviews about the app and so on.
