Well, the straight answer is "it depends"! But for we love to solve anything complex, we've figured out an appropriate answer for this as well and just for you. Here we go:

Summery - Lower - $ 5 K | Average - $ 15-20 K | Higher side - < $ 50K. And now read on...

Lower Side ($ 3 to 5 K) - These are the simplest Apps with no backend/ server side (and with no big logic), having 5-6 screens with limited functionality.

Examples - Diet Planner App, Barcode Scanner App, Budget Planner App, Photo Frame App, Simple News Feed App and likes. Such Apps take 4 to 6 weeks of time to delivery.

Average Side ($ 15 to 20 K) - Most Apps in this category have a backend/ server side dependent functionality, using more device's resources like GPS, Maps, Camera, Accelerometer etc. Most of the utility Apps (and some light games too) fall in this category, also client Apps for e-commerce portals, coupon sites etc. Examples - Event Search Apps, Maps based guides, Restaurant Ordering Apps, Fitness Training Apps, Simple Games, Sales Demo Apps, Consumer-oriented Apps, E-commerce client Apps, Ticket Booking Apps, Taxi Apps and backend and likes. Such Apps take 12 to 16 Weeks of development/ delivery time.

Higher Side ($ 25 K to 50 K or Above) - Apps with lot of functionality, state of the art backend, intelligent algorithms, using almost all device's resources and coolest designs fall in this bracket. These are better to be called as complete mobile solutions rather than just an App. The launch version of such Apps take minimum $ 25 K and goes to much more over a period of regular upgrades and updates.

Examples - CRM App, Complete Social Media Solution, Complete E-commerce Solution, Healthcare/ EMR Apps, 3D Games, Contest Apps, Realtor Apps, Multimedia Apps with server (Audio/ Video/ Photo) and so on.

It's better to do such projects in phases, starting from launch version Phase 1 (which can take 6 to 8 weeks initially) to further. It's better to have a fixed price agreement for the launch version and then hire a developer or team for a monthly fee for regular feature enhancement/ product upgrades.

It is basically the duration and complexity involved in the project that directly determines the cost of development. For example - you'll be investing $ 25 K for a project in 3-4 months and not at once ofcourse, and more for next phase and so on (depending upon success of the version 1.0).

In any case, we always request you to come up with a decent description of your project requirements to get a specific quote. Use this to get a no-obligation quote at anytime - Let's get started .
It is always protected when you work with us, and for following solid reasons:

  • Legal Protection: We are always open to sign a confidentiality agreement (NDA) with you before you share anything with us. Here is the sample NDA doc for your review - Sample NDA with iPhone App Developers.
  • Ethical Protection: We are a pure-play software services company, and do no other business beyond Agicent. Having said that, we never even think of becoming a competitor of our own customers. We love our job of assisting you in creating your product, and hence all your IPR and business interests are of top priority for us, just rest assured!
We work on both. If you have requirements defined beforehand, then Fixed-price is the right method. But if you are looking for a dedicated team for regular evolving product development, then hire a mobile developer or a team from us at a reasonable monthly/ hourly fee. We can always discuss an hybrid model as well.
Yes, we provide complete Free of cost and on priority "Bug Fixing Warranty" for minimum 3 months post delivery, and for more duration depending upon the size of the original project.
We use Skype IM for real time communication, Online Meeting Tools for conferences, and then E-mails are always there. We can use any other tool that you prefer as well.
Yes, and we use Jira, Basecamp, Trello or any other one that you may prefer.
Depending upon your project and time-to-market needs, we recommend and then opt in the best matching development process.
As an example, for quickly evolving product development requirement, we use Agile Methodologies, Scrum or also Rapid App Development. While if scope is well defined right from the beginning and you want a more formal process then we use waterfall model efficiently.
Let us share that a hybrid project-specific model mostly turns out best for App development process, as it leaves a lot of flexibility for both customers and App Development Companies to keep aligned with the process according to the customer's business needs.
