Development cost calculator

Online Cost Calculator

When hiring a developer or outsourcing a team of specialists, most clients agree on the fixed cost for each type of service. You as a user of our development services can pay a fixed rate per hour, week or month of work. If you are wondering now, “How much does it cost to develop my app?”, our online calculator is at your disposal. Find out how much your app will cost in under a minute!

Industries to Develop an App in

Below, you’ll find out how much it costs to design the app for the following industries:

E-commerce

62% of people use e-commerce apps like Amazon or eBay on their digital devices to make their shopping more convenient and safe. So, the e-commerce industry seems quite a future-oriented sphere to launch your app because you’ll have a huge scope of clients: from online markets to personal users. The price for creating an e-commerce app might be between $30,000-$80,000. If you need more advanced features, be ready to pay more money.

Logistics

Apps developed for logistical purposes are used in warehouse management systems, inventory optimization software, trucking applications, and driver time management. Their aims are helping with location and asset tracking. Logistics app development is estimated at around $50,000. In some cases, you’ll pay a higher cost if your app needs to be more progressive or have unique features.

Healthcare & Sports

There is a tendency to maintain physical and mental health. These apps offer health-related services - fitness activity tracking, diet and nutrition planning, hospital selection and appointment management, electronic medical records systems, etc. The range of costs for healthcare & sports apps is from $20,000 to $50,000. Keep in mind that these numbers may change if your requirements are special for the project.

Types of Apps

What app is it better to develop?

Desktop Apps

Desktop applications aren’t in demand currently in contrast to mobile ones. But they function without the Internet connection, which is their advantage over the other apps. If your target audience uses personal computers in office settings, desktop apps will be a good choice. Such apps as Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, etc.) are those apps most users have on their desktops and laptops. So, you can develop an office software suite, data storage platforms, etc. Will this app be developed for Windows, Mac, or Linux? Keep in mind that each operating system has its own set of commands to perform various functions on a computer - opening and saving files, sending, receiving and processing data, and so on. All the requests are submitted through an Application Programming Interface (or API for short).

Web Apps

Speaking about web apps, they are instantly used (if the Internet connection allows to do it quickly) instead of downloading and installing them like desktop ones. Web apps are stored on a remote server and could be accessed from a web browser in a matter of seconds due to the Internet, which you can’t control. Security is another concern because a web app relies entirely on the server. You should remember that a web app is to run both on a user’s browser and a server. That’s why web app development is divided into front-end (HTML, JavaScript, and CSS) and back-end (Java, PHP, Ruby on Rails or Python). Google docs and Grammarly are famous web app examples. You aren’t limited in options for your project - VTeck’s team of developers can develop a website from scratch based on your needs and requirements.

Mobile Apps

A mobile application is a type of app software developed to run on mobile devices like smartphones or tablet computers. They are usually small and have individual software units with limited functions. Among the top mobile apps, there are Uber, Instagram, and Snapchat. Like desktop and web apps, mobile ones are designed for devices with different operating systems (Android, iOS, Windows Phone, etc.) that have their own tools, APIs, and languages. There are three types of mobile apps that you can apply to - native, web, and hybrid. The number of mobile app users was increased - 2,1 million of Android and 2 million iOS apps - were available in 2018. If you have an idea of developing a mobile app, our VTeck’s experts will gladly assist you in this process.

Cross-Platform Development

There is one great solution if you want to have an app worked on multiple platforms or software environments - cross-platform development. The key idea is that an application is supposed to work well in more than one specific digital environment - be it Microsoft, Android, Apple or any other platforms. Different versions of the software program are compiled for several operating systems to fit it to them. Also, developers implement application programming interfaces (APIs) to apply a software part to the required platform. Mind the following advantages as cost-effectiveness, UX consistency, and larger scope of the market.

Platforms to Launch an App on

Types of Mobile Apps

Native Apps
Web Apps
Hybrid Apps
Native Apps
  • Native apps are designed for iOS, Android or other mobile platforms with special operating system-specific features. There app stores such as Apple’s App Store and Google Play from which users download these apps. They are easily accessible from any mobile store that helps you reach a target audience fast. The native features of a particular mobile operating system will contribute to the positive user experience. The good examples of iOS and Android native apps are ApplePay and GooglePay or Google Drive. The average cost for native app development is estimated at $60,000+.
Web Apps
  • Web apps are stored on remote servers, and a user can get access to them without downloading them. A URL redirects clients to use them. The whole web app development process is complex, and it includes such elements as security, time loading, performance, accessibility, and quality assurance tests. The approximate web app development price is $30,000 - $250,000. Besides, get familiar with Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) that are evolving the way web apps used to be - they fit any device.
Hybrid Apps
  • Hybrid apps is a blend of native and web solutions. These apps are the best if you strive to reach a wide target audience for your business. Hybrid apps have a native wrapper with a web view component. Twitter, Instagram, and Uber are the well-known hybrid app examples. To develop a hybrid app costs less than $50,000. The pros of these apps are low price and fast development, while their cons are the lack of performance and speed optimization.
