To develop an OS whether an IOS or an android app is depends on some criteria. When you are just talking about the cost, it depends on the factors. You can hire a team of two or four members working on front-end and back-end. The Front-end team working for designing and the back-end team will work on logics or MVC. Back –end team work on logical and business level and front- end team will work only on the presentation.
Before hiring a team you should have a clear idea about the app, and then you can move to monetize your idea. To develop IOS and android app, it is more important that you should make a successful app rather just make an app. A successful app needs time to develop because once it is made, it needs to beta testing, update, and several changes, debugging, etc. It needs a lot of efforts and you need a dedicated team.
Developing an app is not so easy task. You need to have a dedicated team to work for hours. That the only way to make your dream come true.
There are 4 major criteria –
- Designing : Designing is the front-end presentation of an app.
- Program coding / technical : Program coding / technical support is on back-end that develops the app’s inner functionality, make it. It is responsible for the entire working of an app, for which it needs a lot of hours to develop a successful app.
- Testing : Testing an app is coming when your app is going to be launched, before your app is going to launch it needs a beta testing.
A good app develop depends on types of apps and development process of apps.
Type of apps
- Basic functionality App
- Data Driven App
- Modification of in-built features
- Completely dynamic app
Process of App Development
- Wire framing
- UI Design And Programming
- Application Framework And Server-Side Programming
- Development of Web Services also called as APIs (Application Programming Interface)
- Backend security
- Going to live
The above points are some which can affect the cost of developing an app. The cost is varying on the basis of type of apps, including the development process. It may take 5,00,000 K to 8,00,000 for both IOS and android or it may vary depends on the idea, location. Though, I found that develop an android app is 30% mostly than IOS app. It was studied on some metric basis. But it may differ on the basis of location, criteria, and the idea.
Basic Functionality App : When you want to a certain type of an app like if you want to develop a basic functionality than it could be 800 Dollar to 3000 Dollar.
Data Driven App : A data driven app could cost between 800 Dollar to 3000 Dollar.
Gaming App : Gaming app is costing around 1500 Dollar to 5000 Dollar.
Modification of inbuilt features : if you want some modification in app’s pre-built features or after the development of an app it will cost 1000 Dollar to 2000 Dollar.
Completely Dynamic App : an app should be completely dynamic to respond. It will cost 1000 Dollar to 5000 Dollar.
I hope this can help you. How much does it cost to make an IOS or Android app? The question is a lot to say in everyone’s perspective.
