Cost of Developing a mobile app

shutterstock_103852733Everyone knows about the big names: Angry Birds, Candy Crush, Facebook, Twitter, Uber, Instagram. Countless others have transformed mobile apps from a millennial phenomenon into something even old ladies use with their bridge club. App development has become a multibillion dollar industry with seemingly endless potential.

So, how does an entrepreneur enter this business? How do you build an app?

Rameet Chawla and Ryan Matzner run the show here at Fueled, a New York City development shop famous for working with both startups and high profile enterprises. M-commerce (aka mobile commerce) apps built by Fueled have generated a quarter billion dollars in sales in the past year. Between their decade-plus experience in the technology industry and close connections to hundreds of startups in NYC–including the 25-odd companies operating in Fueled’s co-working space, Fueled Collective–Chawla and Matzner have a deep understand of how to build successful apps.

How do I find a good developer?

Assuming you don’t know any recent graduates from a computer science program, or just want to find a development shop that will produce quality work, Chawla has a few pointers on which criteria they should meet. One simple starting point, he says, is to find agencies that have either won awards or received ample press in tech-related news sites or blogs.

“Also, if their apps have a heavier programming or coding component to it, they don’t necessarily want to go after an agency that only has experience with more simplistic apps.”

Are there any companies that have part of a project done before they go to a dev shop?

“We call them ‘rescue projects, ’” Matzner says, “where people have started elsewhere and they end up coming to us because they realize that these promises someone else made were completely empty, or they didn’t know about us when they started and they’ve figured out some pitfalls with their current setup. And so they’re looking for someone who can actually finish the app and get something released. Or, they’ve released something and it just doesn’t work and has one star in the App Store, and they need help fixing it.”
