• We're affordable - at only a fraction of the cost of other app design firms!


  • So, what does it cost to develop a mobile app? 


    That’s a lot like asking how much does it cost to buy a car or build a house – it depends on what kind of car you’re buying or house you’re building.  That cool-looking Cube costs a lot less than an Italian sports car.  A modest house in the Midwest costs a lot less to build than a modest house in Palo Alto.  Still, it is possible to give some rough guidelines on app development costs.


    A former CEO of an app development company, wrote a guest blog article about app sales on TechCrunch.  According to that article, a survey of 96 mobile app developers showed the average cost to develop an app was $6,453.  An article on OS X Daily about iPhone Development Costs reported that the development cost range for “small apps” is $3,000 to $8,000 and that “more complex or recognized brand apps” can cost $50,000 to $150,000.  A well-written article on PadGadget.com explored The Cost of Building an iPad App and suggested the development costs (as compared to design and other costs) range from $12,000 to $150,000 or more.


    That sounds like a lot.  And it is.  But if you consider that the average app developer in the US charges around $100 per hour, the time required to code even a “simple” app quickly pushes the cost up.


    Our pricing at capptivations is a simple, straightforward, reasonably priced, $2,000 design fee and a monthly charge of $100 for maintainence throughout the app stores.
