What are the key factors that drive app development cost?

What are the key factors that drive app development cost? What aspects should one consider when selecting a mobile app platform? Our founder Taj Dhunay answered these questions and more in an interview with Clutch, the online authority on top app development firms.

“Most people go for both iOS and Android, but there are a few occasions where people do tend to do iOS first depending on their market base and user base, and then do Android. That way you get to see what kind of changes you should make if you need to for the Android device. That’s preferable, and people mostly do iOS. Also, the network of iOS users is bigger at the moment, but it costs more to market the app and acquire users. Android is a lot less commonly chosen than iPhone at the moment.”

The Q&A was part of Clutch’s new mobile app expert interview series, a helpful resource for buyers to learn more about the app development market.

Taj also spoke to the complexities of mobile app pricing. For example, the additional cost of developing the same app on a second platform:

“We don’t code something so it’s universal, we have to code each app from scratch. Everything is native programming, rather than a cross-platform, one fits-all-type of solution. If you had done iOS first and then you do the Android, it will take about a fourth of the time for the second app.  If it’s switched around and you want to do the iOS second, the same thing, it will be a quarter of the time more to do the iOS when you want to do that. The reason why is that when you do a second platform, you can replicate most of the features from the first platform, but then you’ve still got to code it from scratch. It does takes less time to replicate something rather than making the whole thing again. The back-end stays the same, so you don’t recode the back-end. You only recode the whole front-end side of things. So, it’s a bit less time, meaning less cost, but there’s still a cost.”

Marketing Tips For A Successful App

Many start ups and corporates companies approach app development companies to get a quote. First thing is that in order to get a quote for your app a detailed specification or wireframe is required. App developers in UK find it really difficult to provide an accurate or estimated quotation without this necessary information.

Tips for finding right

app developers in UK

Once receiving a quotation it is a good idea to look around for companies of similar nature of work, clients and accreditation. A tips would be to see the companies website also, because if it doesn’t look professional, 9 out of 10 times it will be likely that your app won’t look so good either.

The trick is not to always look at price, because some apps you can developed for as little as £500. However if your app isn’t going to look very professional and get you the results on the app store I would recommend just gambling that money at a casino. You might have more luck 🙂

Another tip would be to see what apps the company have made successful on the app store. If they haven’t then it’s most likely your app will not be successful and therefore it will be money wasted.

1 part of building a successful app that makes money is development, but the really important part is marketing.

Marketing Tips

1. PR (press release) using PRMac.com
2. Bomb App Promotion – bombappromotion.com
3. App SEO using keywords. appcodes.com
4. Facebook advertising for mobile Apps facebook.com
5. Tap Joy to buy installs tapjoy.com
6. Chartboost to buy installs chartboost.com

We also have some great contacts and partners which will get the app listed on the app store in the top 25 rankings. Once an app is developed by us we can share this information.
