Blog – How Much Does it Cost to Make an App?

Thought I should enlighting for you guys what it may cost for you to make an app hiring a programmer, i.e not using the DIY appmaking platformed presented on this site, which is way cheaper =). However in some cases the platforms are not enough, your idea is just to complex & then the best way is to use a developer.

Information is from the site Ideas to Appster and I found the article in one of the diy appmaking companies blogs (Infinite Monkeys).

Here is what they say:


A bare-bones app costs $1,500 to $5,000. A decent app costs $10,000 – you can just throw in a few graphics and tables here in there and voilà – you’re ready for the App Store. Not too bad, right?

But do you really want to make just a “decent” app?

If you’re serious about developing an app that actually gives value to its users, expect to spend anywhere from $30,000 to $150,000 for a high-quality product. You will need to invest in hiring a programmer, testing, and additional costs.”


This is really interesting stuff I believe, and for me beeing in contact with developers I can certify that this is how it looks like. So please try to think before what you really need.


  1. Apps cost as much as you have budgeted. When you build a house, you don’t ask the developer how much it will cost. They ask you your budget and then tell you what you can get for your money.

  2. App development completely depends upon your requirements and features you look forward to have in your app
