by Ionuț Movilă4 months ago 5 min read

In 2024, the cost of creating or developing an app can vary widely depending on various factors such as design complexity, number of screens, development process, quality assurance phase, functions and features, database complexity, 3rpai d party integrations, security protocols implementation, and the size and level of the development team.

At Sensidev Software Development Company, we understand the importance of providing accurate estimates for app development, and we take into account all these factors to ensure transparency and precision in our cost estimates.

To give you an idea, here's a breakdown of the average costs for different types of apps:

  • iOS App:
    • Development cost ranges from $100,000 to $500,000 depending on complexity.
  • Android App:
    • Development cost ranges between $80,000 and $500,000.
  • Hybrid App:
    • Development cost ranges between $70,000 and $500,000 - When considering hybrid apps, it's important to note that they are built using more accessible technologies or a combination of them. As a result, the costs are typically slightly lower compared to purely native apps, such as those developed exclusively for iOS or Android platforms.

Choosing the right agency for your app development project is crucial. Look for agencies with a proven track record, expertise in your desired technology stack, and positive client testimonials. Communication is key, so ensure the agency you choose understands your vision and can effectively translate it into a functional app.

When explaining how your app needs to work, provide as much detail as possible. Outline the core features, user flows, and any specific requirements or preferences you have. Visual aids such as wireframes or mockups can also be helpful in conveying your vision to the development team.

Remember, the best way to get an accurate cost estimate for your app development project is to discuss your requirements directly with developers or software development agencies. At Sensidev, we're here to guide you through the process and provide the expertise needed to bring your app idea to life.
