Knoxweb will also discuss the app infrastructure the administration of the app along with the Q/A costs and what the cost will be to launch your new mobile app in the app stores.

Knoxweb will have a detailed plan for every step of the process, defining the costs, and how long each step will actually take. Although this extends the timeline of the project, there is benefit when you plan every step of your app. However, at the end of your project you will have records that will tell you how long each step took. This will make it easy to improve the design and the development process if you decide to build another mobile app.

Hourly VS Fixed Mobile App Cost

Depending on the mobile app strategy that you use, a fixed fee may be more suitable, especially if you are building a complicated app that takes more time. During the planning stages of your mobile app, you and the app developers can agree on a price for the designing and planning and another fee for the actual development and build.

Knoxweb recommends that you plan carefully and take into consideration the future of your app. After you release you will need mobile app updates, which could run anywhere between $75.00 and $100.00 an hour. Make sure that you discuss future costs with your web development team.

If you are planning a simple app, an hourly rate may be the way to go, but just remember to iron out all of the details with the web design company that you choose to avoid any nasty surprises when it comes time to pay your invoice.

Developer Classifications

There are several different classifications of web developers ranging from independent contractors to the elite class. Depending on what class of web developer you use, it could run you anywhere between $75.00 to $800.00 an hour.

Utility mobile apps are used quite frequently but have session times that are shorter because the user is there for a reason and is in and out in seconds.

Entertainment Apps

Entertainment Apps are designed to entertain, but are different from game apps because they have different goals. Entertainment apps are often times educational and seek to satisfy users. Some examples of Entertainment apps include Spotify, Dubsmash, Duolingo, and Face Juggler.

News apps spread virally and provide fresh and thought provoking content to the masses. Some examples of news apps include Flipboard, Buzzfeed, and The NYT app. The goal of a publishing app is to encourage content consumption so that the app can generate ad revenue.

Productivity Apps
