Do you have your next app idea fleshed out, designed and ready to go into development?
Now it’s time to figure out how you’re going to bring your app into the world, and here’s where some big questions around technology arise. Perhaps you’re clear on the frontend, but you are unsure which backend technology to use? There are countless programming languages and web frameworks out there — you can spend weeks looking at Flask vs. Django vs. Node.js comparisons and still not know which way to go.
$143 billion was spent in apps and on app stores during 2020 alone. And this wasn’t a fluke. Close to 90% of mobile internet time is now spent in apps — a number that’s been steadily growing in recent years.
So if you’re gearing up to develop an app for iOS or Android, you’re on the right track. Businesses that invest in these platforms are not only going to remain more competitive, they stand to boost their revenue and customer engagement as well.

It’s a significant milestone in your application’s lifecycle (and one to be excited about). It opens doors to a new chapter, where you’ll be iterating and improving on a live product.

So, you need an estimation to build a mobile or web app?
The answer is not as simple as the request since there are so many things that go into an estimate. Metaphorically speaking, it’s the same as asking a home builder how much it will cost to build a house. Do you want 1 or 2 bedrooms? How many floors? What type of fixtures do you want? What’s the square footage? You get the idea. To really provide a bonafide estimate to build the house, it takes in-depth conversation and exploration.
