Have you ever imagined how much does it cost to create an app according to your requirement? No need to worry. It varies upon the features and functionalities of the app that you need. It is not as expensive as you think. People always prefer low prices and high-quality app when hiring an app company or while creating an app.
We always recommend you to opt for MVP (Minimal Viable Product) before going for a full-fledged app if it is a startup. This minimizes your budget and lets you know about the feedback of the end-users with minimum effort.

(3) Freelancer/ Company
This is one of the important deciding factors. If the app is a small scale that is being developed as a side project of your primary business, you can choose in-house development or freelancers as the cost is low.
But if it for your business that is going to revolve around, then it is better opting for a development company as they can offer many assurance.
(4) Features and Functionalities
The features and functionalities also factorize the cost structure of the app. As the complexity and the number of features and functionalities increases, the more will be the cost. Keeping this on mind, you should separate the primary and secondary features of your app.
The cost can differ if the UX/UI is the best because a large-scale complex app will have different UX/UI which cannot be compared with the small scale simple app.
The hourly rate of the development team members varies from one country to another. It also depends on the number of languages the app is created.
