Have you thought in creating your own mobile application? Well, if you don’t know how to code, probably you asked yourself, “How much money this app is going to cost me?” We will try to give you an idea of how much an app costs you, and a solution for this cost.


Let’s start checking what is the hour rate of people who develop mobile application, the so-called developers. Looking at some freelancer websites, we can see some developers charge from $15 at entry level to more than $100 at more experienced level. Now that we know how much a developer will charge you, let’s go to the next section, how long does it take to make an app?


You might be thinking, "my app is very simple, a developer will take an hour to make my app. "Well, sorry to tell you but a simple app can take a few weeks to some months to finish. It’s all depends on number of features and the complexity of the application. It is hard to know for sure, until you contact a developer to take you project.


With the hour rate, and with length of time that it take to make an app, we can get an estimation of how much an app will cost you. It will be in the range of $1,000 for a simple app with an entry level developer to more than $100,000 for a complex with a senior developer.


The app can be in your budget, but there is always some hidden problems in developing your app that can raise the costs. Some of these problems can be finding the right developer, this developer understanding your idea, the developer makes the app as you like on the first try, if this developer will be available to update your app or if this person will vanish as soon as you make the initial payment.


To avoid these problems, you can go with a recognized company. But keep in mind that they use developers to make your app, so they will charge you the developer’s cost plus the company’s profit. And you won’t eliminate all the problems, like if the final result will be as you like.
