How much does an app cost to build?

During 2022 the average cost to build an app for an Australian app developer ranged from $30,000 to $300,000. That’s an extensive range; however, that’s due to the fact that various factors impact the cost of app development.

We can break the numbers down even further by looking at the complexity of the app. Check out the cost ranges you can expect:

  • Basic proof of concept app: $10,000 to $30,000
  • Small app: $30,000 to $80,000
  • Medium app: $80,000 to $150,000
  • Large feature-rich apps: $150,000 or more

Factors that influence cost include the following:

  • Features – The functions the app will be able to perform for users
  • Type of app – Healthcare, educational, food delivery, etc.
  • Platforms supported – Will your app be supported by iOS only or iOS and Android platforms?
  • The level of polish – The amount of UX and UI your app needs will influence the cost
  • Location of the development team – Where is your development team based?

The cost of an app isn’t tied exclusively to the build. You also need to consider some of the ongoing fees. There are large corporations that will spend millions of dollars a year on app development and maintenance.

Ongoing costs you can expect include:

  • Server fees – Can range from $10 to $10,000 dollars a month
  • Developer accounts – You’ll need a developer account to release your app; while Android charges a one-time fee, iOS charges an annual fee.
  • Ongoing maintenance – Ongoing maintenance can cost upwards of $2,000 per year.
  • Third-party tools – Third-party tools and their costs will vary
  • Marketing – You can spend as little as you want on marketing or millions; just make sure you’re doing it.

How long does it take to develop an app?

We focus on helping you build intuitive, innovative, and stunningly successful mobile apps, and that process will take time. The time it takes to develop an app will vary depending on how intricate the app is.

It typically takes two to four months to develop a straightforward app . Generally, this type of app comprises five screens and does not require data collecting. An example might be a digital business card featuring company information.

Four to six months is the usual time frame for developing an app of medium or small size , which may comprise up to ten screens for users to create accounts, such as a virtual library or shop.

Developing a complex app such as a social media platform can require significantly more time than the average – up to nine months. These applications will typically come with animation, integration with databases, and other features.

How do I know you won’t steal my idea?

We take intellectual property theft very seriously and we start every project by signing a mutual Non-disclosure agreement.

Will EB Pearls take equity in my project?

No. We are service providers and we are fully committed to making your project successful. Most clients sharing equity with agencies have told us horror stories and the problems of being locked down with poor-quality mobile app development providers.

Will my app idea work?

It is a hard question to answer. However, with our experience, we provide honest feedback when we hear your idea. The best people to provide you with valuable feedback would be the target audience and we suggest doing detailed user research at the start of the project.

Is there any cheaper way to create my own app?

Building iPhone and Android apps can be expensive as both platforms are required to be built separately. However, there are technologies such as Flutter from Google that can be used to save costs for mobile app development. These technologies can only be used for technically less challenging apps and we will always evaluate these options at the start of the project.

I want to create my own app. Should I build with iOS or Android or both?

With equal market share divided between both technologies, we recommended catering for both technologies to cover the maximum number of users possible. However, due to reasons such as budget constraints, user research or others, we can choose to start with one technology and adopt another in future.

How do I make money from my mobile app?

First, we need to understand the purpose of your custom software development and how it will generate value for users. Only then can we start thinking about how to monetise it. There are many ways to make money from mobile and web development, but they all essentially come down to one thing: generating value for users.

We will work with you to devise a monetisation strategy . But to give you a preview: we can use techniques such as in-app purchases, monthly subscriptions, and an advertising platform to make money with the mobile app development.

What should I have ready before I bring on board EB Pearls?

We are a full-service digital agency so you can rely on us for a complete service when it comes to mobile app design and development. However, it is always good to be ready.

Will you help us raise money for our app?

We do not offer investment services. However, we have a network of investors and investment firms that we can introduce to you to raise funds. We will also assist you with all the resources required to raise funds.

Will EB Pearls be able to help with marketing?

At EB Pearls, our key focus is mobile application design and development. However, we do have a special unit dedicated to only select clients where we offer digital marketing services. Please ask one of our consultants if you would like to know more about it.

How much experience do you have in mobile app development?

We are the most experienced app builders in Sydney. We have been developing apps since 2008 and have built over 340 mobile apps (the most number of mobile applications built by an Australian company)

How to Choose a Mobile App Development Company?

The mobile app development company you choose needs to deliver the expected results in terms of user experience and revenue generation for your business. But how do you make sure they can do this?

Tips for choosing the best mobile app development agency include:

  • Read customer reviews and feedback carefully
  • Ensure that the company has strict security measures in place to ensure the confidentiality of your App idea
  • Check references and ask them how they have found working with the agency throughout the design and development process
  • Ask for a portfolio

In addition, you also want to ask the company you’re considering the right questions. Some questions to ask include the following:

  • What kind of QA and testing procedures do you have in place?
  • Can you show me some of the past work of your UI/UX team?
  • Can you provide detailed progress reports on a regular basis?

In addition, don’t be afraid to ask technical questions. This will help you ensure that the company knows what they’re doing.

Why Is Mobile App Development Important?

As users increasingly turn to their smartphones to get things done instead of talking on the phone or going to a physical location, mobile app development is essential for businesses to remain competitive.

With a mobile app, your business can :

  • Provide value to your customers
  • Build brand recognition
  • Offer customer support
  • Boost sales
  • Improve marketing.
  • Connect with customers on a new level
  • Increase customer engagement
  • Create loyalty programs
  • Enhance services to customers

What Are the Steps Involved in App Development?

Step One: Research

Research is imperative. It will build your groundwork for the stages that follow. Here you’ll explore your target audience, motivation, and customer demographics.

Step Two: Wireframing

Wireframing includes creating a 2D skeletal outline. This will inform the future of your app and its functionality.

Step Three: Technical Feasibility Assessment

Before you create your app, you need to know the platform you choose will support it. Android and iOS have different requirements.

Step Four: Prototype

A prototype allows you to determine whether or not you are moving in the correct direction. It’s important to include any stakeholders in this process.

Step Five: Design

This is where UI/UX joins the game. They’ll work to ensure that the look and feel of your app will provide an excellent customer experience.

Step Six: Development

The next step is to begin developing your app. During this stage, your app will get created and built to the specifications determined in earlier steps.

Step Seven: Testing

Testing should be happening constantly for your app. This will ensure there are no problems, and if there are that you catch them early. Catching problems early will help keep your final costs low.

Which Platform Has More Users?

The number of users who have Android or iOS devices is split fairly equally in Australia. There are around 53.6% Android users and 46.1% iOS users in the country.

Should We Develop Native or Hybrid Apps?

There is no clear answer to this question because it depends on your project. The experienced app developers at EB Pearls can weigh the advantages and disadvantages of hybrid vs. native app development with you.

Why Choose EB Pearls for Native or Hybrid App Development?

EB Pearls are the #1 Australian mobile app development company for 2022 to 2023 . We’ve built more than 50 apps that have made it into your app store as a top ten app and helped over 500 app designers turn their ideas into reality.
