One of the popular questions we get when we have new clients come on board for developing a Mobile Application is - how much does it costs to make a mobile application? That is why we thought of writing a brief article about this!
In this guide, we will explain everything that goes into the cost of mobile application development. Although an accurate cost estimate is only possible after listing all the requirements in detail, it is possible to get an overall idea of a rough cost estimate after reading this article.
But, before we begin on the pricing part, as a customer, you must have an idea of what your application will be? Shopping, healthcare, traveling, business enhancement, or anything else? It is a crucial step as it helps working down on the requirements and identify the features on the app.

This is a major costing metric. A large number of screens in a mobile application increases unnecessary complexity for the end-user. It is hence, always advisable to keep the number of screens in mobile application development to the bare minimum. Instead of having one screen for each feature, try combining or feeding the data into a fewer number of screens.
Also, as the number of screens increases, the cost of developing the overall app increases too!
Mobile application development has three broad categories - Native, Hybrid, and PWA (Progressive Web Apps).
One of the crucial steps in the mobile application development is its release, whether to release it on Google Play Store or Apple Store. Each has its fee structure and has its own set of details required before being officially released on the platforms.
While these are just a few vital factors, another critical factor is whom you hire for this project? Mobile application development is an enormous investment; one must choose the creator wisely; either you go ahead with a freelancer or opt for a company that knows how complex the process gets. Each has its pros and cons.
