In the growing era of technology, Mobile apps play a key role as it makes the life much simpler and brings everything to your hand. Which makes everything possible with just a click.


But as we know developing Mobile Apps is not an easy go. There are a lot of efforts and commercials involved. Companies are always trying to figure out how to reduce app development cost without losing or compromising on quality.

Here are the Six ways to reduce the cost of developing the Mobile Apps


  • Market research – A must essential

Look into some similar Apps available in the Market and get a brief idea of how your app turns in the market, and list down all your requirement you need and can avoid unnecessary mistakes. If mobile app development is planned with a detailed workflow, requirements and the goals, it is possible to complete the project at less cost.


  • Choose a right cross-platform for development

You can save a lot of money by not spending more on developers. Cross-lplatform will help you to get the things done in lesser time than usual and can reduce development time and also costs. All you need is just a good developer who can work extensively with any of the cross-platform we choose.


  • Use of pre-built stuff

Use some of the readily available templates which suit your need. Look for some open-source available plugins/templates. This will make your work simpler. There are also many third-party SaaS (Software as a Service) to BaaS (Backend as a Service) that offer ready-to-use solutions for a monthly subscription fee or even free of charge. Among the most popular are mapping, social-media, and payment gateway services.


  • Have your own eye

Don’t just leave your project under the supervision of Project Managers. They too can make mistakes while testing. Do check your application all by yourself too and be the player, not a spectator.


  • Stages of development

We recommend splitting the development into multiple phases. Don’t wrap the whole App on one go and try to wrap-up and also by spending the whole amount you got. Plan the App in stages and also do launch accordingly. Always the launch of first stage/phase will give you a brief and better understanding of how the output will be and also gives you a chance to improvise and implement the missing/required essentials. Focus only on the essential parts to be developed.


  • Don’t use too many custom processes or graphics

Though generally, mobile apps are different, there are still common elements, such as buttons, navigation type, and other details. This happens because in general users expect mobile apps to behave in a certain way, and so do the App Stores too. For example, the Apple has set some Human Interface Guidelines which must be complied with by all the iOS app if they get approved and featured on the iTunes.


For this reason, it might save you precious time and money to use buttons and similar elements that are already created. Of course, do customize your app, but draw the line whenever this is not necessary anymore.
