A smartphone without apps is like the car without an engine. The mobile application now has become an integral part of peoples' life. These applications have made life easier than it was before as today there is an app for everything. For example, you can find an app for health and care, education, entertainment, banking, payments, etc. in Google PlayStore and Apple's App Store. Interesting thing is, the ratio of application usage and revenue is increasing rapidly every year.
But, have you ever thought how much does it cost to develop an application? Well, the cost of mobile app development mainly depends on different factors such as a platform to be used, type of an app, frameworks use for development, tools for testing, promotion and marketing, etc.
How the Cost Changes According to Application's Type?
Numerous apps get deployed every day in the application store, they are either free or paid. The variation in cost can be seen as per the requirements of the project. We can find different apps in a market from basic functionalities to advanced one. Certainly, the cost of applications with basic features is lower than the advanced apps. Let's see how the type of an application affects the development cost?
What are the Different Additional Costs?
Features of Android and iOS applications are not limited. To keep users engaged with an app, developers always provide add-on features in it. For that purpose, they make modifications in source code or add new plug-ins to provide the latest version. The cost can change depending on additional functionality, let's see how?
Downloading an app in smartphones seems to be very easy but the efforts and cost put into developing it is pretty high. But, developing an app is not everything, promotion and App Store Optimization (ASO) is equally important. It does not matter app is free or paid, if it is designed effectively as per the requirements, companies can earn great ROI from it.
