Ask any mobile web design expert about mobile app cost, and you will get the same response, every app is different. According to Knoxweb, it’s like asking the price of a new car. It all depends on what kind of vehicle, or app in this case, that you want to create. The cost of a mobile app could set you back a few thousand or a few hundred thousand dollars depending on the variables of the mobile app.
Prices remain sporadic because mobile app technology is fairly new, but constantly evolving. A good example would be the hybrid app, which helped lower the cost of small business mobile app development from $49,000 to $38,500 back in February of 2015.
Knoxweb has been in the web world since 1996 and has the experience and the tools that allow affordable app production for your business or organization. As new strategies and tools emerge, the cost of app production will continue to drop because mobile web developers have the ability to leverage the tools for time frame and overall cost reduction. As mobile continues to evolve it will become easier and more affordable to develop apps. That means your business or organization will not have to wait months to see their mobile app in the app store.
Plug and Play
Knoxweb explains that plug and play allows small business owners to build their own app. You will find dozens of premade functions including clean templates and much more. However, although it may seem like doing everything in house is a good idea, you may want to consider finding a reputable mobile app development company that will work with you. Knoxweb cuts out the middleman and does everything in house so you don’t end up spending more than you have to.
If you want to protect yourself, it’s important to do your research. Your due diligence will pay off when it comes to the true cost of a mobile app.
Regardless of who you are meeting with to discuss your mobile app, even if it is on Skype or video chat, you need to be prepared with a list of questions. Knoxweb recommends that you be prepared and if any of your questions are met with hesitation it’s time to move on to the next mobile app development company on the list.
