How much does it cost to make an app?

Do you have a great idea for an app, but not the capabilities to make it yourself? Manao Software can help you out. We have developed many mobile apps for both iOS and Android, and can assist with everything from concept and design to development and delivery in both app stores. We usually help with maintenance and ongoing improvements of our customers’ apps as well.


Price for a mobile app

The price for mobile app development varies depending on the features of the app. You can compare it to asking about the price for a vehicle. 

Are you looking for a scooter, a car, or a bus?
Do you want a Toyota or a Rolls Royce?

To be able to give you a price for development of your app idea, we need a description of how you expect the app to work and what features are in it. The more details you can provide us, the better. However, to give you an indication of the price level, we have created the following guideline.

Simple app for iOS and Android

Just a few screens, standard controls, no integrations with external systems, no backend to manage content.

Price: USD $3,000 to $5,000

Medium complex app for iOS and Android

Has more features and screens than the simple app. Has a backend server with data being exchanged to and from the user apps.
A few examples of features that might be included in a medium complex app:

  • Camera
  • GPS
  • Push notifications
  • Simple animations etc.
Price: USD $5,000 to $15,000

Complex app for iOS and Android

The larger, more complex app, usually has a lot of features and is integrated with various external systems. A few examples:

  • User accounts
  • Social networking
  • In-App purchases
  • E-commerce
  • Push notifications
  • Complex animations etc.
Price: USD $15,000 to $50,000
