Building a new application or website is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. The total cost of developing an app depends on several factors, including the type of app you want to create, the functionality you need, the platforms you want to launch your app on, and the hiring model of the mobile app development companies you partner with. The app development market is highly competitive, but GeekyAnts charges an affordable cost for app development based on many factors. Our enthusiastic developers and designers are passionate about creating seamless user experiences and bringing ideas to life. This means you can get a product that meets your needs within the shortest time possible at an affordable price.

Your app idea might cost more than you anticipated, requiring you to seek funding or forgo certain features. Consider releasing an MVP first to get the most bang for your buck and remain flexible with your budget. This will give you valuable feedback from actual users, allowing you to build a better product without breaking the bank. By building an MVP of an app, you can attract early adopters to test your app, validate your idea, see product or feature demand in the market, and then release the full-fledged product.

Picking the right team

If you're looking for an app development agency with an interactive and creative design experience that can easily transform your idea into reality, you're in the right place. You can develop your app from scratch with the help of a dedicated team, or scale existing projects by adding more expertise as per your requirements and talking to our business analysts to see the best way to go forward. In order to achieve your project goals, you can hire a basic team that consists of UI/UX designers, programmers and QA executives. It also includes backend developers if the project needs backend infrastructure for API development. You can also form an extensive team based on your business requirements and include senior developers if your app requires advanced features to be implemented. 

List the features to be implemented

As explained above, each product has specific features. We won’t cut corners in building your application! Now it is time to set goals and objectives for the project and see how to implement them within the project timelines. Feature rich apps can take a significant part of your budget; our project managers can help you to identify the components required to develop your app and provide a detailed cost estimate. This step is crucial and takes most of the time to build an estimation because it requires the analysis of business requirements, study of market competitors and even user interviews. It is also important to consider which features are critical to your app's success and see if these are restricted by the platform you want to build the application for.

The platform and programming language

Before you can set your mobile app development budget, you need to define the scope of your project. You can begin to define this scope by identifying your target audience, and determining which platform (iOS or Android) the majority of users will be coming from. There is nothing inherent to either iOS or Android development that makes one more expensive than the other. However, keep in mind that if you aim to cover many devices, apps will require more time and resources, and thus incur higher costs. A native application, while more complex to develop, will give you more features and adaptability. While easier to develop, a hybrid application is limited by the power of the browser in which it runs. 


To create an application for your business, we must understand your project's aspects. We get the most accurate understanding of how much it will cost to create a high-quality app that will meet your business goals in order to help you envision your app idea.
