Since the release of iOS and Android, bespoke mobile apps have become indispensable in our daily lives. We use them every day for productivity, social interaction, information gathering, online transactions, and entertainment purposes. Mobile app development is a thriving industry and each project can be very unique. Business model, platform, functionality, and features determine the amount of money needed to complete the project. The cost of bespoke mobile app development may range from £2,500 to more than £500,000. However, it is safer to say that the actual cost of a development project can’t be accurately predicted from the start.
asic mobile apps have straightforward functionality, like a video player, scientific calculator, stopwatch, or scheduler. These apps usually don’t require remote servers or Internet connection to operate. With fewer than ten screens in total, these apps are straightforward and quick to develop. The project timeline can be between 4 to 6 weeks.
These apps require a remote server as a database platform and network connection to transfer data. Data-driven apps may include stocks, weather, and navigation. Login access may not be needed, because they provide information to the public. Cost of development may escalate if the app requires more significant back-end resources. The project timeline can between 6 and 8 weeks.
These apps require secure authentication. They include online banking and cloud storage apps. After a successful login, users can manage financial details or interact with data. Security and database reliability are top priorities of these apps, which may contribute to higher costs. The project timeline can be between 3 and 6 months.
Social networking apps allow users to share personal content and interact with one another. Social interactions may involve text, images, audio, and videos. Social networking apps for major platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram must be designed in a way to handle vast amounts of data in real time. Less ambitious social networking apps for niche users are usually faster and cheaper to develop. The project timeline can be between 3 and 9 months.
On-demand apps can be data-intensive with continuous requests from users and rapid responses from servers. Project costs may be higher if the app is to be accessible around the world and available for all platforms, especially Android and iOS. Login authentication is a requirement, and users may also interact with one another. The project timelines can be between 4 and 8 months.
