Top Tips to reduce your mobile app development cost

Are you ready to develop a mobile application for your business but giving it a second thought because of its high cost? Well, it’s true that developing a mobile application is not a cheap task. Companies and start-ups want to build a kickass mobile application but struggle to figure out how to reduce the cost without giving up on the quality factor. We came up with this post so that we can assist you in lowering your mobile application development cost without compromising on app quality. Take a look at some useful tips and tricks that we have personally implemented for our clients’ projects:

Clear Requirement Details

Clear Requirement Details

We always suggest our clients provide clear and in-detail requirements about their app development project. Be jotting a detailed document, you can clearly communicate about your requirements with the app developer. This will not only save time and efforts but also help the developer to map a clear base for your mobile application.
Let’s take an example of our client, who wanted to develop a fitness mobile app named Fitzbyte. Our client shared complete details in a clear fashion about base idea and concept. Our professional app developers didn’t face any challenge while developing the app and completed the project in five weeks. So, if you won’t provide a clear requirement detail, it may lead to numerous changes in the application, resulting in a surge in development time and cost.

A clear and concise purpose

A clear and concise purpose

Make sure to deliver a clear and concise purpose for your mobile application. This helps the development team to grasp it easily for a hassle-free development.
Let’s take another example. Suppose you want to develop a shopping app, but there are different types of shopping app like multi-brand shopping app, seller’s app, used item selling and shopping app and much more. So, your app’s purpose must be clear and concise like if you want to build a single brand shopping app, then it would only sell items from a single brand.
If you try to build on multiple purposes, it may confuse your app developer and stretch your budget.

Minimal Viable Product (MVP)

Minimal Viable Product (MVP)

MVP or Minimal Viable Product is a development technique in which a new application is developed with only one region and has enough features. Instead of going around the world, launch your app as MVP. It will help you to save a lot of money with your app.
Let’s take an example of our developed app named FoodFast. The app was launched as an MVP. Initially, the client decided to launch this food delivery app for only one region with a minimum number of features. As the application started getting popular, our client decided to add vendor app, driver app, and other advanced features. Today, FoodFast expanded throughout the country.
So, if you are a start-up or an entrepreneur, you can go for MVP and save a lot of money in app development.

Priority to useful features

Priority to useful features

Always make sure to prioritize useful features in your app. If you have decided to develop a mobile application, try to eliminate low-key features in your first version. Unwanted features will increase the development cost. So, it’s better to understand your audience and provide solutions in terms of useful features.
Here’s another helpful example for you. Our client wanted to develop a women’s health app named Her Fit File. We suggested our client add only a limited number of features in the first version. Advanced features were added in the next version after the success of the first one. This lets them save a huge amount of money.
So, if you want to decrease the cost of app development, make sure to prioritize the main features and add advanced features once you understand the demand and the potential. You will not only save a lot of money but also understand what your customers want from your application.
The cost of mobile application development can be reduced to a great extent by the right approach. If you have a great app idea but want to save money on it, discuss it with us and we’ll assist you in planning out the economic plan for your app.
